Miami Beach, FL – August 14, 2015 – Typically you can catch SKAM Artist CEO Sujit Kundu managing DJs for other people’s parties, but on Monday night he’ll taking center stage as he celebrates his “2oth Annual 21st Birthday Celebration.” Taking over Tao Downtown, expect SKAM’s top talent including Lil Jon, Jermaine Dupri, Nick Cannon and Vice to all be joining in on the madness. As we celebrate this milestone with Kundu and his motley crew of talent, we take a look back at some of our favorite SKAM artist moments.

Sujit Kundu

Sujit Kundu didn’t grow up dreaming of being a major behind the scenes music executive, but that is in fact what happened. If it hadn’t of been for some of his high school boys he might be a doctor or an accountant instead of the CEO of a thriving management company, SKAM Artist. As life would have it though, in the early nineties, his Orange County California buddies were throwing some unsuccessfully attended rave parties, and he thought he could do better. His own parties started small, but before graduation rolled around his raves were drawing crowds of up to 4000. That success grew into him promoting parties and performances that featured some of hip-hop and R&B’s biggest acts at the time. “I had Warren G, Cypress Hill, KRS-One, Mobb Deep’s first California show,” he says, then adds, “And I would of have Biggie too, but he canceled on me.” By the time he graduated from UCSB, Sujit had expanded his party promotion business into radio promotions and mix shows. He also teamed with the then music director of LA’s Power 106 to form a production and DJ management company. As a production company they landed a top ten radio hit with Shade Sheist’s “Where I Wanna Be.” Meanwhile, Sujit took a radio promotions job at MCA Records. That position didn’t last long, but it did give him his first experience working for a major record label. A few years later when his production / management company disbanded, his partner kept the production arm and Sujit kept the DJ management side, renaming it SKAM (Sujit Kundu Artist Management).

At first his management business wasn’t a big source of revenue, but since the advent of the mash up DJ as a celebrity times have changed. Sujit’s clients now command fees in the five figures. “These guys are getting five, ten, fifteen thousand a night. And for something special like a new years party they can get up to fifty grand, two first class tickets, and a four star hotel stay,” he explains. “They got assistants, publicists; they are businesses unto themselves.” SKAM now has offices in both LA and New York managing a roster of sixty plus DJ’s including Vice, Jermaine Dupri, Lil Jon, Sky Nellor, Nick Cannon, Samantha Ronson and D-Nice just to name a few.  For someone with less of a work ethic, the management company might suffice, but for Sujit it’s just a part of his overall growth. In late 2005, he again propelled his career forward by signing on with Universal Records as the National Director of Radio and Crossover Promotions, and ended with Motown in 2011 as Senior VP of Crossover and Video Promo. Currently, Sujit is SVP of Crossover Promo at EPIC Records working on acts such as Megan Trainor, Ciara, Travis Scott, Future, Tamar Braxton and more. He was responsible for an artist cache that includes Lil Wayne, Nelly, and Akon. In addition to getting those artists’ records played on the radio, his duties include things such as organizing and overseeing promo tours and radio shows. The hours are long, but you won’t hear this executive on the rise complaining. “I got to keep it all in perspective,” Sujit says. “There’s people out here who have to wash dishes for a living. Someone told me if find what you love to do then you’re never working. I love what I do.”  Today, Sujit Kundu/SKAM Artist has made headlines around the nation being featured in the New York Daily News, New York Post’s Page Six, ABC Radio, MySpace, Manhattan, Blackbook, E! News, InTouch Weekly, OK! and Remix Magazine to name a few.

It’s been exciting to create something special with SKAM. To be a part of a group of friends that have grown together in this business has been very fulfilling. While we’ve already accomplished some amazing things, I look forward to the future and reaching new levels of success with my SKAM family!

Vice

Whether it’s a fast-paced EDM song or a relaxing poolside beat, there’s a hint of adventure in every song that takes listeners to the various places that Vice has traveled to. Having residencies at Marquee (Las Vegas and New York), Encore Beach Club, LIV, and Create in Los Angeles, in addition to performances at Nocturnal Wonderland and Electric Daisy Carnival, his music is luring in listeners from near and far. Vice is a genre-bending artist that refuses to be confined to just one category of music and has the ability to switch between different types of music genres. Vice keeps his sound fresh and innovative by collaborating with a wide variety of artists, ranging from A-list to indie. By constantly reinventing and updating his music, Vice always remains a key player in the game.

Ross One

In an industry dominated by celebrity and associations, Ross One has earned his place through humble beginnings and old fashioned “paying dues”. Whether in a nightclub djing alongside Jaz-Z and Kanye West, or playing events for clients like Louis Vuitton, Victoria’s Secret, or Maxim, Ross turns to years of experience to provide the perfect playlist. He walks the line between a younger rock oriented clientele and the more commercial megaclubs in which he holds his residencies. Ross’s ability to keep the cool kids partying alongside the big spenders and more mature club audiences has earned him a reputation as one of the most consistent and talented djs in nightlife today.

This was the second year in a row he brought his “Black Friday” party to Miami and it’s just gotten bigger and better.

The whole place was rockin’ all night long!
