These days there are a bunch of different online platforms to share your music. We have gone on an extensive search to find out which platforms will work for Dubstep DJs and which ones would give you the greatest control over your audience. Today in our scope we have “SoundCloud” which for most DJs has turned out to be a cream dream come true.
With soundcloud promotion everything is about the music, there are no impressive animations to the site, no over the top graphics or videos, just plain simple SoundCloud. But what Soundcloud lacks in the visual aspect they make up for within its audio community.
Soundcloud has a well-established DJ community all over the world that will be able to assist you in the creation of your next tune. In addition to this, you’ll be able to get feedback from people who are already Semi-Pro and are making money off their music. Oh yea, Soundcloud allows you to sell your music through SoundRain. So it’s incredibly easy to get your music known and more importantly sold all over the world.
Soundcloud has a lot of neat little options available for any musician, but we’ll jump onto the important features of the platform to really help you get your sound heard all over the world.
The Player: Soundcloud has an awesome little player that creates a waveform of your track. This way people can actually see how your track will progress, where the drops are, and so forth. You get timed comments on each track that will show you who is commenting at what time.
Community: Your Dashboard will show you what’s happening within your groups, communities, and so on. You could join groups, make your own and start your own little network of fans and fellow DJs that could become your fan base. You also have the option to share your music with yourself, some people, or the entire world. You can also collaborate with other people with a group “dropbox” where you can create some truly interesting “collective tracks”.
Social stuff: Soundcloud integrates with a bunch of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, blogs, and websites, and so on. You can have embedded widgets for your own personal website that will give you updated stats on your listeners. Apps: Soundcloud has a lot of apps that can be used for anything from computers to smartphones and tablets. You can really get your music into the pockets of your listeners without a problem.
