Soundcloud

What were you thinking website wise for yourself?
I'll be sure to check them out bud.

For myself, I am looking at starting off with just a House music website, with latest tracks, event Info and such like.

But my larger scale plans are to become an artist promoter.
What I want to do is go out and find new, fresh artists and help to increase their reputation, help to sell their tracks etc.

Im right at the beginning, looking into many things about; running a website, how to find new artists, stuff like that.
Its what I want to do!

I could fire unknowns at your left right and centre mate providing it's progressive house lol! The best advice i could give regards promoting is quality over quantity. Not that i have hands on experience but i search through hundreds of labels that are signing tracks for the sake of signing tracks. Theres unsigned gems out there if you look hard enough.

One of the best ways to go about it is actually soundcloud. Spend a few hours searching on that and you could easily have a shortlist in no time. Otherwise going through forums is a good place to start too, trance/house forums i mean.

Yeah I get what you mean. I would be very thorough in my search, making sure I don't pick up any duds. Obviously at times I guess it will be hit and miss, some artists just wont sell, no matter how great I think their music is.

Aye, soundcloud is very good for that. A lot of new people trying their hand at House music, some is absolutely terrible, some Is rather good.

The hardest part of it all is actually learning about internet marketing, and making sure what you are doing is staying legal. There is so much to learn haha.

You sound like you have your head screwed on anyway mate. If they dont sell and you like their music atleast its not a total loss. A good tip would be learn/ or know somebody that can master tracks well so they are ready for release. Having a track sent away to an independent studio for mastering can be very costly.

Aw i agree with regards your last point. That will require a bit of research but alot of it is common sense. For example make sure samples, vocals arnt copyrighted. Which can be made clearly simply through a google search. Gonna be some amount of fun!

Do you DJ at all? Best way to A&R a track is to play it out before you sign it and see how the crowd reacts.

Cheers lad!
Exactly, at least i have still found music that I enjoy listening to!

I get you. Im sure I will come across and meet many people once I get seriously into this. Have not been looking into it too much lately with the good weather and all haha.

And yeah, It will be awesome, doing something that I love and after a while, getting paid for it!
I don't DJ, have tried it before just on the PC and I am horrible at it
