    Default How TO Get Signed To An Electronic Label?

    Hey There, I've been on a 5month hunt for some electronic labels to sign me....And I haven't had any luck with them ACTUALLY listening to them. Recently, there were a FEW labels that did come back, and did tell me come back with fresh new material(WHICH I DID). So I've done my share of work, now am on a hunt to hear from the the labels to see what they think. And NOW, am having doubts that Electronic labels are looking for folks that are going more with the mainstream sound. WHAT SHOULD I DO? Listen To My Top 4 NEW Songs.....THANK YOU

    your music isn't at a level that labels will sign you yet kid.

    keep working at your sound, be patient.

    Youve had replies, which is a start. just keep working on your tracks, I dont think you should try mainstreaming your tracks, because the youll ound like everyone else and get binned straight away.

    got it in one!

    you need to think about the whole picture too....most labels won't look at you unless ur solicited by an artist already on the label or unless there is real hype around one of ur tracks, or big names playing ur tracks etc...its alot of work...not just firing out a few emails over 5 months

    Create your own digital label
    Sell music on beatport (or other digital distribution sites)
    ???
    Profit

    Once you have sales, than big labels may come looking for you. Good Luck.

    Yeah....thanks for the feedback guys, but do you think I have a better chance of starting my own label? or just keep shopping myself out?

    all you have done is send a few labels a few emails....have u sent ur tracks to dj's who play that type of music? are you being properly proactive? or just lazy hoping that ul get lucky? 5 months is bullshit...it takes more time than that and a fuck load more work unless ur best friends with an already established artist


    reality is a bitch

    Honestly, the kind of music your producing is VERY popular right now, and it is honestly not up to par with the legions of others who have gotten signed. the music industry really is a bitch these days.

    The Mixdown on the tracks is muddy. The kicks are weak and lack punch.

    Two huge reasons why nobody would sign you.
