It’s been a busy few months on the platform as we worked hard to get rid of some minor bugs and roll out the full features of the mobile app.
What’s more, some great new releases have hit the platform, with the lights of Von Barz, SawBoss, Shankledip, Phillip Stevenson and loads more.
We just added a new R&B and Dancehall playlist for you to enjoy, featuring loads of fresh new talent. Gemini Management helped complile the list, with more songs to be added later over the course of the next week.
We hope you enjoy listening! Stream it here
It’s being said more and more often. ‘You don’t need a record label to make it as an artist’. Almost everywhere people are saying that you do not need a record label to make it big in the music industry. Everywhere on social media, I am seeing posts that the days of the record label are ‘gone’, and you can now make it big on your own, as an ‘independent’ musician.
Unfortunately I do not believe this is the case and neither will the latest set of financial accounts for the big 5 major labels who recently reported higher profits.
The key word here is ‘big’. If you want to make it as a regular, mediocre artist, and simply survive in the music game, doing a few gigs a year and barely making the same salary as a top level ranking Police officer then sure, it is possible to make it independently, without the need of a label. In fact, there are many people doing this, and if this is enough for you then of course, it works. But if you want to make it ‘big’, as in selling out gigs for 200+ days a year, attending numerous events, becoming an influencer and earning at least a six figure salary then I am afraid to say you will need the assistance of a big label.
You see, you can’t get access to certain playlists, events, features, sponsorship deals, celebrities, shows and more without the right connection, let alone the money. You need at least $50k minimum to really make an impact. Actually, the rise of social media has made it so much easier to make it in the music world without having to get help, but only a few really make it big relying on just social media alone. And even if they do make it, most of them end up turning to a record label at the end anyway, as they know this is what they will need to sustain their ascent and grow their exposure even further.
After a year of preparing the app and testing it for full release we are now pleased to announce that the beta phase will end and full functionality of the app will run from 1st November 2021. It may take a few days after the 1st for all changes to completely take effect.
What the new rollout essentially means is that you will be able to access a few more features that were restricted or non-existent before. Reported bugs have now also been fixed and the whole look and feel should be smoother and a whole more seamless.
Some of the key new features include making it easier to purchase songs, the ability to tag others when uploading songs, commenting on blog posts and multiple options for payments (Stripe and PayPal). Some bugs such as problems with uploading an album have also been removed. A new update containing the latest version of the app with all the features should be live in the Google Play store within the next few days; we hope you enjoy using the app and welcome any feedback you have.
