bandcamp i know already from beatspace and triplag too .
good project 4 sure , to make some selfdistribution .
true, it's more and more easy as artist to distribute your selfproduced tracks , but that's not all . to promote your music constantly to the dj & listening audience is very difficult .
and that is the point where the label is joining the game ..
the label is organizing the constant promotion , maybe with nice graphics etc., a good website and in case of physical releases with a good distribution . as "serious" label your job is not only collecting tracks by some artists and getting the money for doing nothing else and sucking the musicians . to promote their releases and make it public is also very very time intensive .. or not ?
and without a label you can't sell your selfproduced music on platforms like junodownload, beatport etc.
sure as musician you can announce your selfproduced stuff by yourself on some forums or get connected to other producers & maybe a couple of interested dj's , but does the other producers and the handfull of dj's are buying your tracks ? i think not .. with other producers or connected dj's isn't it more an exchange ?
i think as artist is that not the main audience you want to have for selling your music , right?
sure it's for both sides the best but usually as dj you don't contact the artist himself to buy his tracks directly or am i wrong ?
maybe some dj's can say something about it .
i saw a donation button on your website , kris ..
is that working ? do you get "good feedback" with that , more than releasing your tracks on labels like here on triplag - or somwhere else ?
