    Default just started an independant label - promos wanted

    sup guys,

    me and my friend decided to start up our own label after DJing for a few years and producing our own stuff as of recently.

    It's called Why Not Records and we're looking for new artists. Our policy isn't tied strictly to one genre, we are hoping to focus on progressive house, electro, dubstep. So if you're a budding producer looking to get your tracks signed then dropbox us your songs with a description of who you are and what you do.

    I have a few questions actually. Who is your target demographic? will your signed music be going on beatport? do you have any ideas of how artists might be making a financial gain? sorry if it seems to inquisitive and i can understand if you only want to answer once someone has signed up but if you can throw out any answers id love to hear em

    Just for the record.. I can vouch for this guy as a genuine DJ/Producer, he's one of the DJ's in my local community and just trying to get things going with a few mates (few mates being mates of mines also).

    Good luck James.

    Well beatport doesn't accept new labels anymore really- you can get on if you go through a beatport aggregator but beatport will drop the label quick if it doesn't sell well.

    There was one point a while ago where beatport was a mess with small labels and it was getting out of hand so they put some strict policies into place

    http://wearethemusicindustry.blogspo...-beatport.html

    Now if you start a new small label and don't have a big roster of artists or have some serious marketing power you pretty much have to go through an aggregation service just to get the label itself on there, and then beatport will still drop the label if it doesn't meet certain sales criteria. Then if you can get on good luck getting beatport to promote the label in any way.

    I would not join a multi-genre label.... Just dont think they are a good idea personally.
