Spotify has announced that Austin Daboh has been promoted to the position of Head of Shows & Editorial in the UK. He will also continue to lead Spotify’s work in the UK’s Black music space.
Before joining Spotify in 2016, Daboh was head of the music team at BBC Radio 1Xtra. Since joining Spotify as Senior Editor, he has expanded the Who We Be playlist into a successful live event, following its launch and partnership with Live Nation last year.
The promotion is in recognition of Daboh’s brilliant work behind the scenes, building artist and label relations in Black music here in the UK.
