Record Producer Mixerman accepts a lucrative offer to mentor the son of an Indian Billionaire to become a world-famous record Producer in this cutting satire of the modern Music Business reflected through the broader prism of a rigged U.S. Political System.
There are a great many perks that go along with having your very own Billionheir Intern. There's the Bentley, the driver, the chef, and of course, the Dishwashing Sikh Bodyguard. But it's Mixerman's newfound position as Guru to his charismatic Billionheir Kanish Kanish that proves most rewarding.
With the Music Business decimated by cratering sales, Mixerman finds himself in the enviable position of being fully funded, which he manifests into an eight-figure Label Distribution Deal with Easter Island Records. There's just one catch. The team must generate $5 million in revenue on nothing more than a Ditty and a prayer in what becomes an epic race for the Number One song against a rapidly expanding group of Produsahs and their Intern Billionheirs.
Mixerman interweaves a wild and entertaining adventure with his off-color social commentary on a dying industry in a rapidly changing world – a world in which the Internet fails to stave the economic divide, independent musicians have no shot at a living wage, all because Big Tech controls the commerce of music at all levels. As Mixerman puts it, “We are currently witnessing the greatest heist in the annals of the Music Business, and that's saying something given its history.”
At a time in history when Views and Shares reign supreme, and with so much on the line, there's only one path to guaranteed success for Mixerman and company. They have to beat Big Tech at their own game.
What could possibly go wrong?
