Not too long ago I receive another link to a new (well to me it’s new) music site. I could call it a music service site as that is basically what they are doing. It’s called Radio Airplay.
Like many other music service sites out there they will offer you the opportunity to get you music heard by the masses. They have their own radio service, like last fm. When you sign up they will give you 100 token to use. The token will give you airplay. You need to put your music into categories, to do this you think of the artist/act you think you sound like and your music will pop up on their radio, just like last fm. So basically it’s like last fm, you can pay for plays or wait for free token every week.
I may be sounding a bit negative while I write this but believe me there is an advantage for using a site like this. For a long time I have been mentioning that I have to think who do I sound like, what category do I fit in, basically in the big world of music where do I fit in? This site has given me an insight for free.
I have been using the site for roughly 2 weeks and in that time I have gain 6 more fans and know that I should target fans of Donna Summer. Why I really don’t know but all but one fan was from Donna Summer radio. I also learned that the track ‘I miss you’ has run it’s coarse and may have to be put to rest, unlike ‘ready for this’ what is at least 2 years old and has finally getting some recognition, is this a sign of change in the music game?
Before I go I must correct something, the tokens are called play credits and you really don’t have to pay for them if you don’t want to, that really is up to you. I will not be doing so as my pockets are not deep like an abyss.
“Electronic dance music is having “an identity crisis”, Daft Punk have declared. In their first interview to promote their new album Random Access Memories, due next month, the French duo claimed EDM “is in its comfort zone”. “It’s not moving one inch,” Thomas Bangalter complained. “That’s not what artists are supposed to do.”
