It seems that I’m not the only one who thinks about these things. Luckily for me someone or some people have done most of the hard work and put it together in this article about Rihanna’s recent single “Man down”.
I’m betting if I was to look through my email folder I would find this same track in there. Happy reading folks.
As part of the ‘fast track to the top’ series, I thought I would get in contact with a start up company by the name of Superbuzz . They make pretty good music promos. I had seen something they had done before and was very impressed with what they had done.
In my enquiry they asked me some questions like, how much is my budget and do `I have any ideas what direction I would like to go in? I told them I have no idea but my budget was £200 pounds. Their response was they cannot help me with that kind of budget.
What they seemed to forget to tell me was how much was their starting budget. In all honesty my budget was rather low however every good company should have a starting budget. Also they seemed to not be in a rush to get back to me, bad business practise.
I don not wish bad upon them but they do need to up their customer response time and when answering questions regarding budgets tell the customer what is the lowest you can start from.
Getting a remix done of your track can result in a world of wonders. For starters, it can give your track a refreshing new start, not only in the genre it was originally made for, but also a chance to cross over to a wider audience, depending on what type of remix you get done.
At first, I was going to sit down and start a long post about how to set up a record company. When it came time to research stuff, I remembered why I never started my own legally registered company. I just find it boring as hell. Even thinking about it was putting me sleep. When I tried to fight it, the sleep deprivation was making a phone call to say hello.
While promoting my tracks, I often think, “Is it possible to get ahead without all the effort?” The best way to get an answer to that question was to ask someone who is in the industry and making a name for themselves. I turned to DJ/Producer/AR/Co-Label owner Yves Murasca to see if he could answer the question.
