Dae Bogan To Host The MLC’s Black History-in-the-Making Instagram Live Series
I am thrilled to curate and host for the second year The Mechanical Licensing Collective’s “Black History-in-the-Making” Instagram Live Series.
On February 28, 2023, The MLC will host a short but meaningful series of Instagram Live sessions with inspirational Black founders and changemakers in music.
The MLC’s “Black History-in-the-Making” Instagram Live Series recognizes three Black founders of forward-thinking organizations that aim to effect change in the music industry through service and/or innovation. Hosted by Dae Bogan (@daeboganmusic), The MLC’s Head of Third-Party Partnerships, each Instagram Live episode will serve as a virtual fireside chat conversation between Bogan and the featured guest to discuss and unpack the core issues centering each founder’s work and their challenges and achievements thus far.
Viewers can watch and engage in the chat room on The MLC’s Instagram account @mlc_us.
2:00pm CST: Daouda Leonard (@daoudaleonard), Founder of CreateSafe (@createos.app)
In their effort to build a new operating system for the music business, Daouda and CreateSafe’s record deal and publishing deal simulators brought eye-opening transparency to music agreements.
2:30pm CST: Thalia “Muziqueen” Ewing, Founder of Nashville Is Not Just Country Music (@ninjcm)
Thalia and her organization have conducted groundbreaking research into the disconnect between who lives in Music City and who drives the music industry.
3:00pm CST: Randy Savvy, Founder of Compton Cowboys (@comptoncowboys)
Produced by Dr. Dre, Savvy is an artist and a leading light in the Compton Cowboys, a unique program that combines equestrian excellence and community uplift.
The MLC is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of songwriters and representatives of music publishers. For more background on The MLC and its Board and Committee members, go to http://www.TheMLC.com.

[Video] Artist Managers Connect presents AMA About The Mechanical Licensing Collective with Dae Bogan
Is the blanket license royalty rate determined after the majors have negotiated their license with the DSPs?
Does registration with the MLC supersede registrations with HFA and MRI?
If a song was previously licensed under the voluntary license, does it now have a secondary revenue to coming from the blanket license, or do you have to choose one path over the other?
Will the MLC establish reciprocal mechanical collections with foreign mechanical CMOs such as MCPS and AMCOS?
Watch me answer these questions and many more from artist managers in my “Ask Me Anything About The Mechanical Licensing Collective”
[Podcast] Creative Innovators Podcast
In this podcast with Gigi Louisa Johnson, I discuss some of the key events in my youth and early adulthood that laid the foundation for my adventures as a serial entrepreneur and music rights professional.

Dae Bogan shares how he sees solutions and “warps” them into business ideas — which is both a blessing and a curse. He began with selling cakes in middle school and organizing bus tours in high school from Cleveland, OH to New York. From his early history in acting, singing, and creating and producing events, he moved into a long series of start-ups (including putting gogo dancers in store windows) before moving into various endeavors in music tech. Dae has started and sold a variety of cloud-based ventures as well as mentored founders of other startups. Dae shares how he now is bringing those diverse skills to bear as head of Third-Party Partnerships with The Music Licensing Collective. The MLC works with music publishers and artists to collect and distribute their streaming royalties.
Dae Bogan To Moderate Keynote Panel “Academia + Industry Action” at Music Biz’s #NEXTGEN_U
I look forward to moderating the keynote panel “Academia + Industry Action” at Music Biz’s #NEXTGEN_U, an event exclusive to students, recent grads, and faculty members taking place
Wednesday, August 12, 12pm PST / 3pm EST.
Keynote Panel: Academia + Industry Action
The intersection of academia and real-world experience is a constant hot topic for students. What’s more important: getting an A on your publishing split sheet project or making yourself available to intern an extra day a week? How do students effectively balance their workload while not missing out on the opportunities that await them outside the classroom? How important are these opportunities? What are professors doing to bring these experiences back into the classroom? Guest speakers are cool, but what else is academia doing to keep students engaged, learning, and thriving in the competitive music business ecosystem? And lastly, what opportunities exist, outside of internships, where brands and music companies are embedding students and their next-gen ideas into their business plans?
