HERSHKOVITZ IN THE STUDIO
11/13/19

UMG has named veteran television producer and late-night music booker Roey Hershkovitz as VP of Capitol Studios & Digital Studios. In the newly created role, Hershkovitz will oversee Capitol Studios’ recording, tracking, mixing and mastering operations and label relations while also expanding the studio’s audio-visual capabilities.

Based in Hollywood’s Capitol Studios, Hershkovitz will work closely with Paula Salvatore, VP of Administration and Sales, who continues to be responsible for sales, booking and administration, and will report to Christopher Jenkins, EVP of Digital Studios, and Patrick Kraus, SVP of Recording Studios & Archive Management.

“Roey’s background in television production, postproduction and music uniquely qualifies him for this newly created role in UMG’s Digital Studios,” says Jenkins. Kraus adds, “We are fortunate to have someone of Roey’s caliber join our team to help build on the legacy of this historic studio as we chart our course into the future.”

“I’m excited to work alongside Chris and Pat to bring my experience in television and working with the artist community to develop new opportunities and audio-visual content,” says Hershkovitz, who joins UMG and Capitol Studios with nearly two decades of late-night television experience, including having spent ten years working on Conan O’Brien’s CONAN.

HELL YES, HELL GNAW

Tyler, The Creator hosted his eighth annual Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival at L.A.’s Dodger Stadium over the weekend. The lineup, curated by Tyler himself, featured breakout artists like Clairo, Dominic Fike, Omar Apollo, BROCKHAMPTON, and Taco. Fans were able to live-stream the performances via Twitch Music.

Since its 2012 inception, Camp Flog Gnaw (formerly known as Odd Future Carnival) has grown at a rapid pace, outgrowing its past venue at L.A.’s Exposition Park. The success of the festival is a tribute to Tyler’s growth as a rapper/singer/songwriter, producer, fashion designer and, most recently, Wall Street Journal’s Innovator of the Year.

Other notable performers from the two-day festival included Summer Walker, Solange, Tyler, the Creator, H.E.R., FKA Twigs, Goldlink and YG, among others.

While many fans speculated that Frank Ocean might be the surprise headliner, Tyler instead brought out A$AP Rocky, Lil Uzi Vert and Drake, who subsequently left the stage before his set was finished.

Drama aside, Camp Flog Gnaw continues to bring together top-notch performers to the carnival-like festival for a one-of-a-kind experience. Pictured below—after indulging in an array of craft, deep-fried desserts that we’ve never heard of—are HITSMarina Khechumian (L) and Ranya Khoury (R) with RCA’s H.E.R., who has coincidentally never heard of HITS.
