Hi, my name is Dominic Mayes. I’m the founder of Unorthodox Music. This page is all about me. If you’re looking for music head over to the home page and I guarantee you’ll find something you’ll like. So first let me tell you a little about Unorthodox and how it came to be.

Unorthodox Music Ltd was officially formed on the 11th of January 2013 by myself. Admittedly the idea came to me at least a year previous to this date but it took me around 12 months to establish all the things required to kick off the company. Believe it or not, there was actually a plan and I did a-lot of research before taking the plunge and registering the company with companies house.

The thought process behind Unorthodox was actually simple, I was always that guy people approached wanting the latest music. Friends and strangers alike would ask me for mixtapes and to do party playlists etc. At a young age I realised I had a passion for music (especially anything bassy) and also a keen eye for talented musicians and musical trends. This all supported the aim of Unorthodox which was and still is to promote the best new music. You may ask why I didn’t just setup a personal music blog. The answer, I wanted to give the visitors to the website something extra, something more interesting, something Unorthodox. It was early on that I knew photography and videography would play a large part in the core running of the company. Why just play people audio tracks when you can give them an insight into what was happening at the time, be that a performance or recording session. It adds a whole new dimension to music.

Fast forward to today and Unorthodox has gained a quite reputable following. With over 1,000 facebook likes and around 8,500 twitter followers plus regular visitors to the site I’m very humbled.

Anyway, that is enough about Unorthodox and how it came to be, this page is supposed to be about me right?

I was born in Solihull and now live in the surrounding area. I’m currently 21 years old and am studying at University in Birmingham. I originally started on a computer forensics course but after founding Unorthodox my interests shifted and I’m now studying media & communication. Depending upon the area you are interested in, I have complied a list of some of my skills below.

My skills include but are not limited to;

Advanced computer knowledge –¬†Experienced with packages such as Photoshop, After Effects, Sony Vegas, MS Office, Web development, Social media management, hardware and Cisco networking to name a few. Everything at Unorthodox has been created by myself. Everything the company has achieved has been a direct result of my actions and of that I am very proud.

Photography / Videography – I am capable of using DSLR camera equipment to a high standard, including taking photo and video as can be evidenced by content on this website.

DJ – If you’re interested in my skills behind the decks my first official mix can be found here
