Hi everyone DyNaMik Records haven’t been posting for some time so just to fill you in we give notice that the company has been wound up having spent the last few months in mandatory limbo which all companies have to do prior to closure.
Late 2017 the owner had a death in the family (a close relative) & also has aging relatives who are in need of support which has contributed to the company being wound up.
Award winning DyNaMik Records did what they set out to do and was instrumental in helping a number of amateur artists, guiding them & developing their careers. The artists benefited significantly from that guidance. DyNaMik was very active in establishing and growing their artist fanbases (often from scratch) as well as exposing them & their music to opportunities within the music industry along with all the other usual record label stuff. The artists availed themselves of DyNaMik’s knowledge & expertise not to mention some of the companies friends & associates!
Running the company was very labour intensive but not profitable so after a few years of very hard slog it was decided the time was now right to move on & pursue other interests within other areas of the music industry as well as outside it.
This blog and DyNaMik Records website will remain open for the time being for enquiries about artists that were on DyNaMik’s roster or any other matters. Please use the contact box on DyNaMik’s old website, home page.
We were invited to be featured again in Bandit’s newsletter we are in this issue & back issues. Please contact Bandit to subscribe to their newsletter & check out the opportunities for artists, bands, songwriters & more…..
We found out a couple of days ago Show4me has been featured on the (real) Billboard. We were very pleased to hear this since we are the first & as yet the only record label organising concerts utilising the Show4me platform & are exclusive representatives of Show4me also. In spite of what you may read Show4me are the market leaders in crowdfunding concerts & the first platform to offer the concept of funding shows by engaging friends, family & prospective fans or established fans of artists involving them in the experience of being involved in a more tangible way to the shows they are supporting rather like people used to do in the good old days of hunting for music in record shops, buying vinyl & later on cd’s.
There was something very satisfying in this because people had to make some effort & time as well as money to support the music makers who rely on their support. Music is a very expensive & time consuming business & through platforms like Show4me we endeavour to engage people once again to make that commitment.
It is extremely hard to raise interest in unknown artists with little or no fanbases but all the time & effort is paying off with our first campaign being a success. It is a huge bonus for our unknown artists to get a mention in prestigious publications such as Billboard by association with us too so a win win for all.
We have been with Show4me from the beginning & whilst we have encountered much resistance towards this model the industry, in our view, needs to adopt a more sustainable business model & we see Show4me as the game changer. As part of Show4me we are helping to grow the platform. More news soon.

I came into contact with a writer who uses the pen name Tyler Weaver he was running a crowd funding campaign at the time looking for supporters for his project which was to produce a 1930’s comic both digital & physical plus a radio show which I thought was intriguing & subsequently became one of Tyler’s supporters. My supporters perk was an ad in the comic which was expected to come to fruition much sooner than has panned out. Tyler has now made the adverts available to the supporters of the project & I asked for the ad to encompass a 1930’s version of DyNaMik Records Tyler thought it would be fun to add a back to the future vibe & that sounded good to us so here it is.
“Billy Wilder once said (I’m paraphrasing here) that he wrote comedies when he was sad and dramas when he was happy; a way to keep a balance, I suppose. When I embarked on what would become Whiz!Bam!Pow!, I needed that balance too: I needed to write something that made me smile. That was almost nine years ago.
But what is Whiz!Bam!Pow!? Good question. I think the last nine years were spent discovering that. It evolved over the course of its near-decade of existence, but at its heart, it is a story of family, friends, forgery, death rays, and the Golden Age of Comics, an era I hold near and dear to my heart, the beginnings of comics, when they were cobbled together by creators who were flying by the seat of their pants and had no flights of fancy or inclination that their work-for-hire creations would become a modern mythology that has transcended generations.
In the end, Whiz!Bam!Pow! became a three-volume novella about grandfathers and grandsons, families torn apart by creative obsession, and the serendipity that awaits those who open themselves up to it. Interwoven with those stories were the three episodes of The Adventures of the Sentinel radio show, the recordings of which will go down as the most fun I ever had in my creative career.
But I’ll be quiet now. I’ve taken up too much space here, and Susanna has been nothing but generous during the creation of this project, so I’ll leave it to you to enjoy the finale of my last nine years.
It’s time for me to get back to work and find a new balance.”
Who knows what the future holds for this project but surely it will be magnificently Whiz!Bam!Pow!
