Our Ecosystem.

Welcome to the Black One Universe.

Meet our streamlined talent application platform. Here young talent, as well as emerging artists, can show us their potential.

Meet our streamlined talent application process. Here young talent, as well as emerging artists, can show us their potential. This is all done with the help of our online Audition platform...
No matter what stage you’re at, our online process takes you through a few “Phases.” Only after one passes these online checkpoints, we extend an official invitation.
 
Of course, emerging artists and aspiring talent both differ in the number and type of phases. With aspiring talent, we focus on identifying their real ambition, skillset, and personality. With emerging artists, our focus is on their content, vision, and character.

Black One Academy

Black One Academy

Our training grounds to educate, train, and shape future artists. Both happening online and offline. Offline is for our trainees, online for everyone.

Our training grounds to educate, train, and shape future artists. Both happening online and offline. Offline is for trainees that train at our campus. "Black One" is the highest level you can reach...
Our online academy focuses more on the educational aspect. Giving aspiring talent access to the foundational building blocks to start in the complex world of music and entertainment.
 
Not only do we minimize fluff and focus on action-oriented content. But anyone has the opportunity to learn from our offline instructors and some of the best coaches in the world.
 
Our offline academy focuses on training and polishing existing skills. In particular, creating music and mastering the art of being an exciting performer. The goal is to shape handpicked talent (from our online auditions) into potential artist concepts. Theory becomes less important and creation as well as instilling “superstar skills” take more precedence.

Once one has reached the highest level (Black One) in the offline academy, they are now an “upcoming artist.” Now, instead of training, we shift towards content and music creation.
 
Black One Music is also in charge of breaking emerging artists into global markets. Offering a modular combination of holistic management, growth services as well as a deep focus on mental and physical well-being.
