Amsterdam, April 18th, 2013 - In a week packed with things designed to look amazing, one venue that stood out in particular at the 2013 Milan Design Week was Heineken’s The Magazzini. The brewery’s inspirational space for workshops, discussions and parties proved to be the ultimate showcase for MassiveMusic as Heineken’s global music agency.  From developing the sonic identity for the launch of the brand new Club Bottle to programming the music line up for the daily parties, the full service music agency had a big hand in making The Magazzini Milan’s undisputed place to be for the entire week. 

Rocking acts like Nobody Beats The Drum and The Smoke Eaters were programmed by MassiveTalent, MassiveMusic’s talent division. But it wasn’t just all beers and shindigs. Apart from serving up hot tunes to the world’s design aficionados, MassiveMusic was in the musical lead for the launch of Heineken’s brand new STR bottle: the Club Bottle. The flagship Club Bottle was revealed to the world on the week’s opening night. And because exciting introductions deserve exciting music, MassiveMusic produced a pumping sound track especially for the Club Bottle’s launch. The track was also used for the introduction of an even more unique version of the already exclusive bottle: the Ignite. A concept bottle that lights up in response to music and motion, making the future of clubbing look brighter than ever before.

The Magazzini collaboration further consolidates MassiveMusic’s role as Heineken’s global music agency. Affectionately dubbed ‘our musical friends’ by Heineken, MassiveMusic has been working closely with the Dutch beer brand on outlining and implementing its global music strategy since 2011. ‘Our collaboration with Heineken is a great example of all that’s possible when a brand embraces music as a key communication channel’, says Michiel Cremers, Head of Branding at MassiveMusic. ‘Music brings people together, just like brands do. Combined, the two can be a very powerful marketing tool. At our branding division within MassiveMusic we’re harnessing that power together with our clients.’
