MUSIC & STYLE COLLABORATIONS

COLLABORATION CALL:

Our first Boombox Boutique is working on collaborations between indie bands & brands that fit the Hipster lifestyle. You know, the cool stuff you’re finding in Williamsburg or Silver Lake. We need bands, brands, and fans to help us find the latest in music & style so we can share our talent, resources and revenue.

THE HIPSTER’S PLAYLIST

NEW MUSIC

The Hipster’s Playlist is geared up for the crisp Brooklyn air up with tracks from aspiring artists who have grooves that will get the creative juices going. You’ll find songs on Volume 01 from Foreign Air, SAFIA, Frills, The Man Who and many more to come.

THE HIPSTER’S STYLE

MATERIAL THINGS

Nobody knows how to pick out the best of things nobody knows than a hipster. Pack your convertible backpack up for a stroll through Williamsburg after coffee before you start the day in your creative loft. You’re probably the first ones on the Guestlist

THE HIPSTERS

Join our Hipster Street Team and earn exclusives from Modern Material Members. Your mission as a Street Team Rep is to help promote your favorite indie bands and brands who you want to see make it big some day.

THE MODERN WORLD OF MATERIAL

In today’s modern world you wouldn’t dream of spending money on the music that forever defines your life but you can’t wait to buy new clothes that will go out of style next season. Songs don’t end up in landfills, they end up engrained in our memories.

We think a song deserves to be valued more than a $0.99 bottle of water you’ll drink in 10 minutes, toss in the garbage and buy again tomorrow. An album deserves to be valued more than a $25 jacket you bought at H&M because you forgot to pack one for the weekend. Music deserves more money than you spend every time you replace a pair of lost sunglasses.

While digital material took away the artist’s right to make a living selling music, making money selling fashion skyrocketed into epic proportions. The ability to sell a product direct-to-consumer became increasingly cheaper as layers of the supply chain could be eliminated with online shopping. Buyers don’t need to spend a year planning what will sit on store shelves in hopes the right person walks through store doors to buy it.

All you need is a great product and the ability to reach enough customers who are willing to buy it. Then came social media and now everyone famous seems to have a clothing or beauty brand.

Modern Material is going back to it’s roots. The days when we were just a marketing street team going from show to show to pass out CDs and requesting songs on the radio. We are building an army of artists, designers and entrepreneurs who just need to cut through all the bullshit out there. The world doesn’t need another fast fashion brand or pop star…it needs genuine, authentic art that truly means something to people. That’s what music means to us.

If you meet our qualifications, we want you on our team…street team style. We are not competing for business or trying to capitalize off your art, we are creating one business for artists to make a living. Providing customers with one convenient marketplace is the only thing that survives in this world. Artists (at any stage) have global reach with new audiences each night while designers have brands that have more appeal than a souvenir t-shirt business. We are simply here to connect the dots between art & commerce.

We invite you to apply to our marketplace today. All you need is love for great music & style.

Founder + Creator

INVITATION ONLY

WHO:

Each Boombox is a collaboration of music & style created and curated by the trendsetters who wouldn’t be caught dead wearing the same outfit as anyone else and the tastemakers who only listen to the bands you’ve never heard of.

WHAT:

Our Boombox Boutique will feature tracks from independent designer brands (jewelry, accessories, apparel, and beauty products) and independent bands working together to create, curate, make and market the latest material.

WHEN:

A Boombox will begin playing once our artist, stylist, and designer lineup is established. We are a project based company so new material will only be released on specified dates. The first release of boxes is slated for the Holiday season.

WHERE:

Modern Material is an ONLINE store marketed ON TOUR. You need to be on an Artist’s Guestlist to purchase a Boombox. The ONLY way to buy Modern Material is to get invited at a show, go to an artist’s page for the invitation code to RSVP.

WHY:

We believe in bringing music, art, & style together to help independent artists make a living creating the material we crave. We provide an equal profit sharing program between the artist, brand and our collaborative commerce system.

THE BOOMBOX BOUTIQUE

The more money you invest into your Boombox, the cooler the sh*t is gonna be. Albums will not be released until our team of artists & designers have finalized the collections.
