"#15 - Billboard Uncharted | Week of May 28, 2011"

The charts published by Billboard each week have traditionally been meant to measure albums’ and singles’ success in terms of sales and airplay. But what about newer artists who are building careers in other ways? Billboard‘s new Uncharted chart, introduced for the first time this week, is designed to highlight those under-served up-and-comers.

According to Billboard, the Uncharted chart is based on “a formula of online exposure incorporating streamed plays, page views and fans according to MySpace Music as well as sources tracked by online aggregator Next Big Sound, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, ReverbNation, SoundCloud, iLike and Wikipedia among others.” The chart ranks artists, not their releases; anyone who has appeared on a major Billboard chart like the Hot 100 or Billboard 200 is disqualified. - Billboard Magazine


"#02 - Billboard Uncharted | Week of June 04, 2011"

Brooklyn’s EDM Artist/Producer Modular Punk Makes Billboard Debut - In an unprecedented move to recognize new and developing artists who do not have the volume of sales or airplay that have traditionally defined success, the all-new Billboard Uncharted ranking brings undiscovered talent to the revered Billboard charts for the first time.

Uncharted gives a vast market of emerging talent the opportunity to be ranked and discovered. Billboard’s Uncharted is part of its new Dreamseekers initiative that will include not only the Uncharted ranking but also Billboard Pro, a comprehensive tool to help artists manage and grow their online fan base.

Occupying the No. 1 slot on the inaugural Uncharted ranking is hip-hop solo artist Traphik, a Long Beach, California-based Thai-American rapper known for his comedic YouTube videos and rhymes. Other artists in the top five include DJ BL3ND, Colette Carr, Javier Jofre and the Deadlies.

With a universe of millions of artists creating and sharing their music on digital platforms to amass an audience, many are serious about a career but have not arrived on the mainstream music scene. They may not have a retail story or a radio story, but they have leveraged the Internet’s powerful role in music consumption and have a noteworthy following. Uncharted is an artist discovery tool for the music industry’s ecosystem of recording labels, talent management, concert promoters, music publishers, radio, film, television and advertising executives as well as passionate music fans.

“Uncharted is about launching careers. We want to serve as a conduit for artists to step onto a broader stage, ultimately topping one of the major Billboard charts,” said Billboard Editorial Director Bill Werde. “Record labels, publishers and other music companies are always looking for ways to make smarter bets on emerging talent, and we think the Uncharted ranking will be a significant tool for those who would invest in music.”

The Uncharted ranking is based on Billboard’s own Heat Score, a formula of online exposure incorporating streamed plays, page views and fans according to MySpace Music as well as sources tracked by online aggregator Next Big Sound, including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm, ReverbNation, SoundCloud, iLike and Wikipedia among others. Uncharted will capture 50 artists across various genres of music (i.e. Country, Rock, R&B/Hip-Hop, Latin, etc) who must be registered MySpace Music artists and have not previously appeared on specifically outlined Billboard charts (more than 80 overall) in order to be eligible. - Billboard Magazine


"Propelling back into the top 50 is New York-based techno DJ/producer Modular Punk"

"Propelling back into the top 50 is New York-based techno DJ/producer Modular Punk, who's been gaining steam quite steadily. Over the past thirty days, Modular Punk has released eight out of ten new tracks--with names that reference everyone from Radiohead to Nietzsche to 'Planet of the Apes'--all of which appear on his new album, 'Rise of Man.' A new record, combined with a string of upcoming European dates and over 43,000 SoundCloud plays, was enough to propel Modular Punk from No. 53 to No. 24 this week." -Jon Blistein, Uncharted Territory, Billboard Magazine (Oct. 7, 2011)

Bio

Having received praise from well established Artists such as Techno Legend Richie Hawtin, Ellen Allien, Eric Prydz and Axwell, as well as journalists from the some of most prominent music media publications of this decade, Modular Punk has pushed his dark and super-sub bass injected indie beats to dance floors across the globe. DJing in over 20 different countries in 2010 alone, you would be hard pressed to ?nd a more promising individual, regarded as highly by his industry peers as he is by his huge global base of musically educated fans.

Dynamic, driven and drastically obsessed with performing as well as he possibly can, Modular Punk’s live performance is a veritable testament to his fervent passion for musical bliss.Literally pushing himself to a point of absolute physical exhaustion and resultant hospitalization after performing live, Modular Punk has redefined the expectations of a DJ / Producer, driving fans absolutely crazy with his aggressive proclivity for dancing and clapping his hands in between every tweak of a pan-pot, drop of a bass-line, and drag of a cigarette.

Modular Punk’s explosive sound has become too strong for one simple generic association, and right now his message is louder than ever. Modular Punk is not just at the top of his game, he is pushing the boundaries of what a DJ/Producer can do – both technically and creatively – as an artist and as a successful label businessman.
