HOW TO BUILD A LOYAL FAN BASE
(95% of Artists make this mistake!!!)


Now that you are ready to become a rockstar it’s time to find some loyal fans! Most up-and-coming artists simply assume that if you post your music regularly enough fans from all around the world will miraculously discover you and fall in love with your art! This is by far the biggest misconception EVER, and why you ask?

Simple, if you are an artist who plans on pushing the boundaries of your sound to the limit, there is a high chance your music will sound totally different to an average listener. In our cases when you sound super unique that’s usually a great sign, but don’t underestimate the power of crowd approval.



Most new music needs to have mass approval before it gets accepted by the public. Think of some of your favorite established artists and when they drop something completely new, the reaction initially is not a great one. People in general need to feel comfortable listening to...

Why Most Artists Fail ?

Before even considering the music industry every artist needs to ask themselves one simple question. Am I in this for the money or the music? If the answer is money, then you better quit now!

If the answer is music then here are 5 tips on how to NOT fail as an artist.

 

1. CUT THE FAT

Get rid of all the people in your life who are not rooting for you. All those high school friends, drinking buddies etc. If they are not pushing you to win, get rid of them.

2. STAY IN THE ZONE

The only distraction in your life should be more music. When you are working on your music, throw that phone in the garbage, and turn off Wi-Fi if you can. If you are working on an important project let your parents know that you are well but will be missing from planet earth for the next couple of days.

3. GET YOUR MONEY

If you are a musician without a job there is no way in hell you will survive. So get a job! Find one with flexible hours and just cut your expenses to a minimum. It’s not that hard!...

New Music On The Way from Michael Bibi

Uncategorized May 18, 2022

Unless you have been under a rock, as an electronic music lover it’s fair to say that Michael Bibi has been a name on your mind for a while now! Ever since his legendary flip of a “Hunger Games sample “Hanging Tree”, Bibi has been on an absolute tare. Now, the last time we got a taste of new Bibi was back in 2021 when we got treated with smash hits “Whispers In The Wind” as well as "Shaolin Dreams”

 

I am not too sure if we even want to attempt to describe the production level on “Shaolin Dreams”, and it is 2022 after all…so let’s hear some new fire! And behold, as if the dance music Gods tapped on Bibi’s shoulder and said, “Michael, it’s time for new heat”, Bibi simply replied “Hold my beer” and dropped these 3 IDs on us. Now as fans all we can do is sit and pray this is going to be a 3 track EP of absolute mastery at its best!

Networking for music producers in 2021 [3 actionable steps]

Actionable tips about networking for music producers in 2021

It’s happened to us all before.

You find an artist that sparks your interest on either Social Media or while you’re listening to music.

And then you think to yourself, “Man, I’d love to collab with them.”

But then you either send a DM and never get a reply back, or you have a quick conversation that leads to nothing but exchanging each other’s tracks and some small talk.

Maybe you even get as far as sending some stems, but then, in the end, the collab ends up falling through, and so do your hopes for another release.

If this is in any way relatable, then try these three tips to increase your networking game and to finally get more songs released.
