A note from Bec
Booshu (meaning: Beautiful) was born out of a need to distribute and release sexy house music that was coming my way and the incredible talent and tracks that were exciting me. I guess too much EDM flooded my airwaves and I thought, there must be room for hands in the air house music, gospel inspired vocals or just a sexy deep vocal house track or a storming disco house track featuring a soulful Diva. The pioneers of house music must never be forgotten and I will always nod my head in respect to those that changed house music forever, Carl Cox, Dimitri From Paris, The Freemasons and StoneBridge are just a few that gave us that feeling, like you want to make love to the ceiling! The team at Booshu look forward to bringing you music that makes you put your hands up and grin from ear to ear!
Booshu has been founded by Platinum Award winning, songwriter, singer and producer Bec Caruana as a way to collect, create and release beautiful house music .
Gerard Brock | Artist Representation
A seasoned industry professional with more than 25 years experience working in the fashion and entertainment industries as a designer, dancer, DJ, promotions and talent scout. Being immersed and drawn into music from a young age led to my appreciation for all music genres, which still stands true till today.
From my early days of working in fashion and as a DJ I learnt how to become attuned to what clients and patrons wanted, be it creating a garment which made the client feel beautiful and empowered or playing a songs which brought the fans to the dance floor for hours on ends.
These early stages of my career cemented in place the next phase for me when I was approached to work as a Talent Scout for various talent search networks in America who I became known to via the contacts and friends in the industry I have made over the years.
With this role we would liaise with the A&R teams at both major and independent record labels like Sony/Epic, Universal, Interscope, Capitol, Columbia and G Note Records just to name a few, as well as various publishing and licensing groups around the world.
A large part of my role was to not just find talent I believed could make it on the international stage, but to assist them with their development to do so. Artist Development entails everything from song structure, aligning artists with songwriters, producers, management, artist advocacy, media both social and radio/tv, image and endorsements and finally connecting with promoters and booking agencies.
It's my role to leave no stone unturned in giving each of my artists the best possible chance of getting label attention and ultimately local or international success. Today's industry is all about numbers, be it unit sales, YouTube views, downloads and streams, chart positioning on radio/TV, and most importantly fanbase numbers.
Nothing brings me greater joy than seeing an artists material being played in radio for the first time, fanbase growth and most importantly making the stage their own, so with my list of contacts I do what's needed to bring their visions and dreams to reality. .
