About Media Contender


Who is Media Contender?
We are the underdogs and we are everywhere. You can find us on the streets amongst the producers, DJs, musicians, graphic designers, photographers, graffiti artists, and individuals that you may not know about yet, but should. They are the dreamers, the ones that pursue the things they love without compromise. We champion the independent entrepreneurial spirit and lift up the people that stand for something.

What does Media Contender do?
Media Contender is made up of creative professionals who have been actively curating underground music and culture for over 30 years. Our goal with Media Contender is to create a brand that stands for quality not quantity. One that you can trust which will introduce you to other brands and deliver content that allows extraordinary access to the artists that are making an impact at the core of the culture. Whatever project we take on, the goal is to bring the brand to life.
The music, videos, and interviews presented on our website are intended to support and promote and are as a result of direct contact with the artists and/or their management team. We are one of the few to provide mp3′s at high quality and exclusively to our readers. If there is a track or video that you own the rights to that needs to be removed, please contact us.
