Team Blackout Official: A Hometown Movement Revolutionizing the EDM Scene
To become legendary within the music industry is something that many invest their whole lives working towards, some never reigning successful. To become legendary for something other than producing music itself is arguably harder – yet one EDM event group is rapidly climbing the totem pole within this constantly competitive scene, and to call them a game-changer is a serious understatement. This is the story of Team Blackout Official.
“Team Blackout began as a concept my inner circle cherished and based their lifestyle around. We had this bond, this family sense, going to shows, clubs, and festivals since 2010. Now here we are, 5 years later with a fully-functioning, rapidly up-and-coming EDM company, hitting the scene with something no one has ever seen before.”
Austin Dulak is the initial founder of Team Blackout Official LLC, which originated in early 2015.
“Originally from 2010-2013, TBO was just a thing that our inner circle did, but around 2014 something changed in my mind. Almost out of nowhere, I had many ideas and conversations with friends about turning the Team Blackout crew into something more than just a family that goes to festivals. Many friends and family had a big impact and push that really helped me see the vision and the potential of this company.”
Today, TBO & BLKOUT are hitting the EDM scene in a major way, constantly expanding their brand recognition, especially throughout their stomping grounds of Florida.
“We have gone from an idea to a brand that supports DJs by getting them into a brand that no one else is rocking. This, along with their fans joining the following has expanded our original ‘team’ to a collective that we now call BlkoutFam. Recently we’ve expanded and reached out to a well known DJ and personal friend of 5+ years, Sheen Boogie, who has been one of BLKOUT’s biggest supporters. With Sheen Boogie’s high relevancy in the scene TBO has already caught the attention of many well established artists. Producers such as DVBBS have personally reached out and requested merchandise to support TBO around the globe.”
“We now work with 7-8 DJs, both up-and-coming as well as fully established producers touring the world, supporting our brand at every show. It’s a humbling feeling to be able to work in the field you love.”
TBO shows no signs of slowing down, especially with festival season freshly in effect. The Blackout family has made recent appearances at some of Florida’s premier EDM events, including EDC Orlando last November and the one-and-only Ultra Music Festival in Miami last month in March. Amongst all the shows coming up in Florida and surrounding areas, the Blackout crew is preparing and promoting for Sunset Music Festival (May 28-29) in Tampa, FL supporting headliners such as Hardwell, Jack U and more.
