The core of Primordial’s activities is a radio station where the user controls the music that surrounds the presenters and content. Think Tinder meets Spotify meets radio and you won’t be far wrong. Our ambition is to combine the intimacy and personality of radio with the freedom and choice of digital streaming to offer users a simultaneous unique and shared experience.
The service is aimed at the UK rock and metal community as that is where our background and experience lies but our long term goal is to apply the model to other niche genres and communities to create Primordial Music.
We also create video, podcasts, and original programmes and offer merchandise and soon will host events.
The rock and metal community and its needs. Without them this company would not and could not exist. The rock and metal community, like many specialist audiences, is grossly underserved by mainstream media as sustaining a service for disparate audiences in the traditional spot advertising model is very challenging.
The digital functionality available today renders moot most of the traditional challenges and provides the opportunity to unite an audience not bound by geography.
The actual process of becoming a business owner was simple whereas the process of convincing yourself and believing you could be a business owner was far more complex. Overcoming the fear of working without a net was the difficult bit.
By asking our community for help. We know every skillset and intellect needed are found in this community. Everything we have built we have done so by looking within.
Yes. Last year, a week before Christmas, when the administrators entered our former employer and told us we no longer had jobs.
Depends upon how you measure success? We are still in our start-up infancy so patterns are yet to emerge but in terms of engaging with our community we are smashing out of the park.
Absolutely. I wish I had acted seven years ago when we first had the idea. That way we could have included some amazing people who have subsequently gone on to do other things.
Haven’t yet overcome. The goal is to make Primordial flourish and then poach the people that need to be included in this journey.
There is no us and them only us. Many brands position and preach this ethos but fall short. We are all Primordial. Check the discussion page on our Seedrs bid to see what we mean.
Where all parties are treated fairly and benefit.
