mar brownATLANTIC RECORDS recently promoted industry veteran MAR BROWN to VP/Urban Radio Promotions.  He had been the Head of Mix Show Promotion.

BROWN’s 17 years in the record industry include stints as West Coast Regional Promotions for VIRGIN RECORDS and VP/Rap Promotions/Mix Shows for INTERSCOPE RECORDS.

ALL HIP HOP.COM reported his views on staying relevant, writing “In my position you have to be able to connect the dots.  Even though radio is still the #1 driver of music for consumers, these kids today want to see the artist’s photos, their associations, and what they are doing behind the scenes.  It is important to stay ahead of the social media curve and know what’s going on – -on TWITTER, INSTAGRAM, AND FACEBOOK.”

The list of successful acts BROWN has worked with include KENDRICK LAMAR, RICK ROSS, JANET JACKSON, LADY GAGA, and many others.
