The Tribes has also proven its intent by just recently appointing Matthew Dicks as Head of Business Development. Matthew has been entrenched in electronic music and technology's commercial development since the nineties and after starting his career as an Ad Manager for DJ Magazine he has gone on to help drive the scene forward in many innovative and forward looking ways, including pioneering many successful digital concepts as Commercial Director at Ministry of Sound, and heading up marketing activity at large multinational Telefonica.

Says Grahame, "I think this is the natural extension to what we do at Data Transmission. Being able to combine with pals at other websites/blogs and influencers to offer a wider reach to a piece of content is essential. Doing that with The Tribes we can also unlock potential new clients for the both of us. It's about working with a brand to get them exposure through our websites, or our combined contact base, to offer a real return on investment."
Alex adds, "'Nowadays, in the digital world, content is king. That's why we decided to bring this all together under one roof. We have an amazing team of writers who produce world class content for the very best music sites in electronic music, and so make perfect partners for lifestyle brands who want to spread their message further."
