    Default I'm starting an independent record label.

    And i have a few things to say ...

    1. We're looking for some artists who make, House, Tech house, Techno, Tribal , Deep house or Electro (Older french sounding, E.g Justice), And see'ing djtechtools has been such a help to me in the past i would love if some members could pass on some demos.

    2. Has anyone any tips/help or i should know in general that will help with the starting of the label ?

    We've set a target of being up and running for christmas, But we're going to announce the label properly at halloween as myself and friends normally throw a party around holidays.

    How many tracks do you want to have in one demo?
    Are Soundcloud links cool?

    Good luck so far!

    @ K.T.I.T. Send us a soundcloud link and we can take a listen to your tracks on there, If that doesn't suit you send a sharing link over with anything under 4 songs.

    And thanx

    Good luck, and I sincerely wish the best. That being said, stop advertising/soliciting for it until you have a proper email. There is no rules on where good music can come from, but you might get less people who really take it seriously if your contact in a hotmail addy.

    Proper meaning an email client like exchange. Something with a dedicated email server, ie; Rkid_Dan@toastybeats.com
    The MUSIC is what matters!
