My name is Neil Cocker and I have run and worked in small businesses in the music industry, marketing and development for the last ten years. I currently work as a freelance adviser in the fields of the music industry and entrepreneurship.
This site will primarily be used as a holding page through which I can be contacted, but I will keep the pages and links on the right updated with articles and links that hopefully my clients (and anyone else who stumbles across this page) will find useful and interesting.
Neil Cocker was a co-founder of Wales’ all-time most successful electronic music label, Plastic Raygun, and ran its Marketing and A&R for 5 years. With his colleagues he helped steer the label to many awards, plenty of underground smashes and a Top Ten hit. He is also one half of DJ/Production duo Phantom Beats, who were voted in the top 5 breakbeat acts in the world at the International Breakbeat Awards. On top of this he has performed live on Radio One, at countless festivals (Glastonbury, The Big Chill etc etc) and has played in almost 30 countries across Europe, Asia, Australia and America.
