Life & Work with Mike Kadilac

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mike Kadilac. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Mike Kadilac is an aspiring Latin Music Executive which started his passion for music at a young age; born in The Dominican Republic; he started his music journey while buying instrumentals from local shops so he can then record his friends using very little resources. 

In 2001 Mike moved to USA, graduated from Christopher Columbus HS in the Bronx, studied Computer Sciences alongside Audio Engineering at Touro College in New York, acquired a continuing education certificate for Music Business from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. 

Throughout the years, Mike has been able to build a big professional network of talented music producers and executives to successfully collaborate on heavy projects within the Latin Music industry. 

In 2006 Mike founded KADILAC RECORDS, a boutique label to help and sign local and upcoming artists reach their music dreams by providing recording and production opportunities. With his label, Mike was able to release multiple singles that allowed him collaborate with major producers and already established music artists. 

In 2015 Mike visited Orlando, FL for the first and immediately fell in love with the city as it reminded him his days back home in The Dominican Republic; he then moved his family to Orlando, FL a month later after his first visit. 

Now in 2022, Mike Kadilac has gathered over 10 top major music executives from Grammy, Latin Billboard, and Multiplatinum award winners to share their knowledge and expertise with up-and-coming music leaders of Orlando, FL. 

This Music Seminar called The Latin Music Hub will be hosted for the first time in Lake Nona, Orlando at the Lake Nona Wave Hotel with an amazing projection to expand to different states and overseas. 

Mike’s vision is to educate a young generation of dreamers, create job opportunities, and collaborations with top and already established professionals within the industry; this is just the beginning of an amazing journey!

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
I am proud to say it has not been smooth; I love the challenges and struggles along the way; learning how to overcome obstacles is the ability to develop a surviving skill that we all need. 

Another part of my vision is to be able to inspire, educate a new generation; being able to share the process and that I was and still able to make things happen with struggles is the best living example to never give up. 

I’ve taken a path that a blind investment is done with the hopes of making it, driving by passion and determination. 

As you know, we’re big fans of you and your work. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about what you do?
I am an aspiring music business and record executive. I specialize on developing new talents and connecting them with exciting opportunities. I am better known for my abilities of making things happen and creating new opportunities. 

I am most proud of myself for fighting for what I want for; I just go and get it! 

Faith, passion, determination, persistence, love for others, and honesty are just some of the many other qualities I possess that set me apart from others; hard to believe there’re people out there lacking just simple qualities like these. 

In terms of your work and the industry, what are some of the changes you are expecting to see over the next five to ten years?
The music industry, specially Latin Music, has grown so much compared to years ’90s and early 2000s. 

Technology alongside with music are playing an amazing role to reach out to a wider audience and a greater mass. 

On the other hand, I believe the respect for music has diminished while leaning more towards controversy attention; I know we can still act and create excellent music for the audience that respects and values real talent. 

That is why education is very important; we can develop new ideas to expand the consumption of art in better ways for years to come.
