Is Soundcloud the biggest untapped source of fantastic unsigned Producers?

We all dream of being that top producer that everyone wants to hear, have people anticipating for that next release, have people crying out for promos of your new release and have all the top DJ’s playing your next production. Soundcloud have allowed people since October 2008 for this dream to become a reality. Alexander Ljung and Eric Wahlforss the founders of Soundcloud are music fans who wanted the world to hear bedroom producers and unsigned DJ’s get their music across to everyone from top DJ’s/Producers and record label guru’s. I for one have come across some fantastic unsigned producers and DJ’s who have made some fantastic music, i can then share this to the world by one click on my phone or laptop to all my social network accounts, this for me is fantastic.soundcloud-sign

There has been some criticism towards Soundcloud when they released information regarding membership fees to become a pro user which gives you better statistical information and upload time. There are two options Pro User which costs £3.99 a month and allows you to have 6 hours of upload time or you can pay £8 a month which allows you to have unlimited uploading time. I for one think either option is a snip and this year i will become a pro user when i start rolling out my Podcast. The price you pay is small for what could be the ultimate goal in some producers eyes, to be signed to a massive record label and who knows you could be playing some of the biggest stages or festivals in the world thanks to the Soundcloud platform.
wtf-youredm-759x500
So the question i ask for my readers is, Is Soundcloud the best way for people to hear your mixes and tunes? Is there a better platform out there for upcoming producers and DJs.

My conclusion is that Soundcloud for me is the best untapped source for producers and tracks. Free downloads of tracks that could easily be of a quality that could be played in clubs and festivals. I have found thousands of tunes that i have downloaded and i have fell in love with.

You could easily make a mix of just Soundcloud free downloads and people would think a big name producers have mixed or produced. As you can guess i love Soundcloud and think it is a fantastic tool, a fantastic promotion of peoples talents.

Motivation is Everything

Do you ever feel there’s a greater being inside of you just bursting to get out? You can feel its presence sometimes, can’t you? It’s the voice that encourages you to really make something of your life. When you act congruently with that voice, it’s like you’re a whole new person. You feel like a god in a human body. You’re bold and courageous. You’re strong. You’re unstoppable.

But then reality sets in, and soon those moments are history. Where did that powerful voice go? Were you merely suffering from delusions of grandeur?

It isn’t hard to temporarily put yourself into an emotional state of power. Just go to any Tom Robinson’ concert seminar, and he’ll have you dancing in the aisles feeling totally motivated. Put on your favorite fast-tempo music, stand tall, breathe strong, chest out, shoulders back. Strut around like a superhero. Shout, “Yes!” Pound your chest a few times for good measure. You’ll look like a dolt, but this does actually work.

But then you go home, and the emotional motivation fades away. Your great ideas now seem impractical. How many times have you been temporarily inspired with an idea like, “I want to start my own business,” and then a week later it’s forgotten? You come up with inspiring ideas when you’re motivated, but you fail to maintain that level of motivation through the action phase.

So how do you reach the point of high motivation and stay there?

Emotional motivation 

Tony Robbins says the key to motivation is state management. This means conditioning yourself to feel a certain way via techniques like anchoring (connecting an emotion to a physical trigger). When Tony pounds his chest while speaking, he’s firing off anchors he previously conditioned. The downside is that you need to keep firing off these anchors as well as periodically reconditioning them to keep your motivation up. That means lots and lots of chest pounding.

As another motivational method, Tony suggests writing down the pleasure you associate to a task as well as the pain of not doing it. Again the idea here is to stir up your emotions, so you’ll be motivated to take action. This type of motivation is usually short-lived, even when the emotions involved are very intense.

I studied and practiced these kinds of emotional motivation techniques extensively during my 20s. In the long run, I didn’t find them particularly effective. My intellect saw right through all the chest pounding. The logical part of my mind was ultimately dissatisfied with attempts to induce motivation through emotional manipulation.

Have you ever seen one of those rah-rah motivational speakers? If the speaker is good, s/he will have an emotional effect on you and get you to feel motivated. But within a day or two, that emotional boost fades away, and you’re back to normal. You can listen to hundreds of motivational speakers and experience an emotional yo-yo effect, but it doesn’t last. I think this is especially common with technically minded people. We’re accustomed to thinking with our heads. We’re still emotional creatures on some level, but our emotional B.S. detectors periodically scrub our minds free of anything that doesn’t satisfy our logic.

Intellectual motivation

I used to get frustrated when my emotional conditioning fizzled out after a while. Eventually I realized that being guided by intellect, not emotion, wasn’t such a bad thing after all. I just had to learn to use my mind as an effective motivational tool. I stopped using emotional motivation techniques and decided to see if I could motivate myself intellectually. I figured that if I wasn’t feeling motivated to go after a particular goal, maybe there was a logical reason for it. Perhaps I just wasn’t taking my logic far enough to see it.

I noted that when I had strong intellectual reasons for doing something, I usually didn’t have trouble taking action. I’m motivated to exercise regularly because doing so is intelligent and reasonable. I don’t need to emotionally pump myself up to go to the gym. I just go.

But when my mind thinks a goal is wrong on some level, I usually feel blocked. I eventually realized that this was my mind’s way of telling me the goal was a mistake to begin with.

Sometimes a goal seems to make sense on one level, but when you look further upstream, it becomes clear the goal is ill advised. Suppose you work in sales, and you set a goal to increase your income by 20% by becoming a more effective salesperson. That seems like a reasonable and intelligent goal. But maybe you’re surprised to find yourself encountering all sorts of internal blocks when you try to pursue it. You should feel motivated, but you just don’t. The problem may be that on a deeper level, your mind knows you don’t want to be working in sales at all. You really want to be a musician. So no matter how hard you push yourself in your sales career, it will always be a motivational dead end. You’ll never convince your mind to give up on your more important dream of being a musician.

When you set goals that are too small and too timid, you suffer a perpetual lack of motivation. Try all the emotional conditioning techniques you want, but you’re wasting your time. Deep down you already know the truth. You just need to summon the courage to acknowledge your true desires. Then you’ll have to deal with the self-doubt and fear that’s been making you think too small. There’s no getting around that if you want to experience lasting motivation. Ironically, the real key to motivation is to set goals that scare you.

I recommend working through these kinds of blocks in your journal. Type a question like, “Why am I feeling unmotivated to achieve this goal?” Then type whatever answer comes to mind. You’ll often find that the source of your block is that you’re thinking too small. You’re letting fears, excuses, and limiting beliefs hold you back. Your subconscious mind knows you’re settling, so it won’t provide any motivational fuel until you step up, face your fears, and acknowledge your heart’s desire. Once you finally decide to face your fears and drop the excuses, then you’ll find your motivation turning on full blast.

When I use this process myself, I uncover new goals that seem unreasonably big. I admit that I want them, but I feel incapable of achieving them. However, when I finally step up and set goals that lie outside my comfort zone, somehow I end up feeling very motivated, and I summon all sorts of unexpected resources to help me.

Was it unreasonable to set a web traffic goal of reaching a million monthly visitors without spending any money on marketing? I originally thought so, but I privately set that goal before I ever launched this site because it inspired me. More reasonable traffic goals had no motivational effect on me. Now that I’ve achieved that goal, my next traffic goal is to reach 10 million visitors a month. Is that unreasonable? Probably. But somehow it’s very motivating to me.

It seems counter-intuitive that motivation may be highest when setting goals that lie outside your comfort zone, but I’ve seen this pattern too many times to discount it. Perhaps we have to set big, hairy, audacious goals in order to feel truly motivated. Maybe little goals just aren’t enough to trigger the release of motivational energy. If we think a goal is too easy, we won’t commit all our internal resources. It’s only when we set unreasonable goals that all our internal resources come online, including motivation and drive.

When I set a goal that’s big enough and challenging enough, I never need to pump myself up with emotional rah-rah. I feel motivated to pursue the goal because my intellect is fully behind it. I just find myself doing what needs to be done. No chest pounding required.

JUST BECAUSE YOU CANT SEE THE LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL, DOESN’T MEAN YOUR FUTURE IS NOT BRIGHT. KEEP GOING I PROMISE YOU LL GET THERE

Work Hard Care Hard

You could make something right now. If you wanted to stop reading, grab a sheet of butcher’s paper and brainstorm ideas, you could probably come up with half a dozen ideas for apps, books or products. Ideas aren’t the hard part, after all — just ask Tom Haverford.

You could build a WordPress site and start harassing your friends to test the concept. You could start writing op-ed pieces on Medium and put “Founder” or “Author” in your Twitter bio within 48 hours. You could throw up a landing page, post the first chapter of a book and start pushing it on Product Hunt.

Where things get tough is when you’re trying to make something that people genuinely give a shit about. You don’t want your dream to die in the chamber, because nobody read it, watched it, used it or listened to it. The deafening silence surrounding your work can crush your soul.

1.

Only Make What You Care About
If you want to make something that people really care about, that they actually give a hot shit about, you have to care about it yourself. Because if you don’t, then try as you might, it’ll come out in the final product.

The reason for this?

Making something is hard. Making something you don’t care about is even harder.
The only way you’ll be able to consistently work, when you don’t want to work, consistently try when you don’t want to try, is by deeply and honestly caring about your work.

You want people to care?
You have to genuinely care, yourself.

2.

Make Things For Real People
The best writing advice I have ever heard was to write specifically for someone I know. It’s a genius idea. Every time I go to create something, or build something I think about who I know that would benefit from what I’m doing.

If you have something that you care enough about to make, you have to ask the next question — who are you making it for? What information do they need? What turn of phrase would stop them in their tracks? What is their single pain point that the product could solve, or their secret story that your novel would be able to touch and cultivate into a real emotional response?

Stop thinking about your audience as a vague concept, a collection of faceless people.
Believe that your audience is a real person with feelings, experiences and a story. It will change your perspective.
You want people to care?
You have to know what will make them care.

3.

Ask Yourself If You Fit The Project
You need to ask yourself whether you have the courage, the strength, the motivation and the passion to make what you want to make. And I mean really ask yourself, because when you first come up with an idea you can get so caught up in it that you can’t see anything else.

It’s easy to mistake excitement for passion, motivation and ability.
When that feeling starts to die down, or you get used to it, you can realise that you don’t have the real raw power to be able to finish and follow through. That’s not a bad thing; there is nothing wrong with recognising that a project isn’t right for you. Maybe there’s another project that is.

It’s not enough just to care about what you’re making — it has to feel right.

You want people to care?
Only work on projects that feel right.

4.

Don’t Do Anything To Be Someone
Have you ever watched one of those reality TV singing competitions? You’ve probably seen a hundred young people, eyes shining, clutching microphones and talking about their dreams. They’ll explain that ever since they were kids, they wanted to be singers.

They hardly ever say they wanted to sing. When it comes down to it, half the time it’s because actually singing isn’t the end goal. They want the trappings and lifestyle and the breaks of being a singer.

If the act of singing was really their end goal, they wouldn’t be on a reality TV show. They’d be out there every night singing anywhere they could, writing songs, starting bands, recording music.
The same is true for anything you could make. Do you want to make X, or do you want to be the person who made X? Because if you don’t care about the act of making something, and if you don’t want to get out there every day and try to make something, you might as well quit.

You want people to care?
They should care about your work. Not you.

5.

Work. Work Hard.
If you want to write a book that can break someone’s heart — work hard.

If you want to make a song that changes the world — work hard.

If you want to draw a comic book that expresses everything you are, and dream about — work hard.

How to get your music on radio’s

The first step in getting radio play is sending your music to radio stations.1098627_f260

Distributing music to commercial radio stations used to involve sending CDs, printing cover letters, bubble envelopes, researching radio stations, finding the right contact information and paying shipping fees. Now over 95% of the music played on commercial radio is received digitally.

Each radio station has a Music Director and Program Director; together they decided what songs they’ll be playing on their radio station in a weekly music meeting.

So how do you get your song included in these music meetings?

It’s the Music Directors job to pre-listen to the music and decide which songs they will listen to in each music meeting. The first step is sending your music to the Music Director properly.

The Music Director gets bombarded with music on a daily basis and they don’t have time to listen to every song sent to them. To help decrease their workload they will generally only listen to music that has been submitted to them properly. They won’t open emails with attachments, or click download links or streaming links especially from someone they don’t know.

Commercial radio stations will not play music by artists that are not serious about their project. If music is not submitted to them properly they will typically assume it is not high quality enough for radio play. Music Directors need to know that you are educated enough about the music industry to send your music properly.

When you’re sending Music Directors your music, remember that they are also being contacted from major labels and promoters who are working for more established international artists. Give your song the best chance possible by delivering your music the same way the major labels are delivering the music of international artists. This will make your music project look more professional and Music Directors will be more likely to take your music into consideration.

So how do you properly distribute your music to radio stations?

On Air sign in a studio broadcasting via radio, podcast or wireless transmission.

There are a few digital services that offer this specific service. At AMP Records we use DMDS (Digital Music Delivery Service). Music Directors use DMDS almost exclusively to receive and review new music. They provide the stats on who’s streamed and downloaded the song you’ve delivered.

While no one can guarantee that proper digital distribution will result in radio play, it is a guarantee that you won’t get radio play unless you are distributing it properly. Commercial radio play is one of the most competitive areas in the music industry and it’s very difficult to get radio play. For the best result possible we recommend hiring a radio promoter once you’ve digitally delivered your music to radio stations.

We Media Emperor would like to suggest all Artists to try BBC Uploader for BBC to Introduce your song.
