1. He’s not a morning person

“Definitely don’t call him at 8am. He might take a call at 4am, but not 8am. Calling him [in the early hours] shows that you are up and on it, rather than waking up and asking, ‘What do you think about this?’”


2. Don’t be late for work

“Turn up on time.” Wait, isn’t he notoriously late for everything?

3. He doesn’t like false people

“People can be intimidated by him, but he’s really easy to talk to. He’s lovely, but he doesn’t like fakes. Don’t try and bullshit him – if you’re struggling, don’t try to pull the wool over his eyes. He works really hard at finding new artists, so if you need help, ask. Talk to him and he’ll help you, rather than styling it out.”
