Danny de Reybekill
Lead Lecturer, Music Marketing, Media & Communication *
Music Marketing, Media & Communication lecturer Danny de Reybekill teaches at BIMM Institute Birmingham. After beginning his journey in the music industry freelancing for music magazines, Danny moved into radio with Birmingham's BHBN Hospital Radio network, moving onto independent station Brum Radio in 2015 to host the Brum & Bass show for three years.
With well over 100 shows featuring mixes & interviews from Benny L, Bryan Gee, Skeptical, Steve Bcee, Fabio and many new and emerging artists, Danny garnered an ear for cutting-edge electronic music in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
As a result of this, Danny was offered a position working at Subtle Sounds where he oversaw a roster of electronic artists, taking them abroad and around the UK to events. Progressing from this, Danny was offered the opportunity to present on BBC Introducing WM at the end of 2018 which allowed him to fly a flag for genre-bending music.
After handing the baton over in 2019, Danny headed up the Brum Radio A-List, working with Pete Steel curating new music playlists. He combines this with being a radio show commissioner at Brum Radio, starting a podcast on mental health in the music industry and hosting a monthly residency on Bristol’s 1020 Radio.
Danny now teaches at BIMM Birmingham, where he is Lead Lecturer covering a range of topics including Marketing & PR, Artist Branding & PR as well as Digital Journalism and social media.
