Record COmpanies
« on: June 20, 2012, 02:44:24 PM »
I'm in the process of getting a station up on the net, and was wondering if there is a list of record companies/contacts to get promotional material from?

Thanks

A great source to get all the latest songs is http://www.promoonly.com/

Not sure if they have promotional material for record companies, I suppose it depends upon what kind of promotional material you're looking for, but certainly they would have the connections to direct you to the proper place.

Bandon,


Thanks very much.  Their rates aren't that bad.

PO is good. There is another one, I just learned of, for MP3 distribution:
 MP3 Pool Onlinehttp://mp3poolonline.com ...
very affordable imho. I believe it costs $20 a month.

Also there is XMix: http://www.xmix.com 
They are priced in line with Promo Only.

Also, there is: Radio Expresshttp://radioexpress.com/public/content.php?loc=home.php

Also, there is: Airplay Direct: http://airplaydirect.com

Another one: Digital DJ Pool - https://digitaldjpool.com - They charge $11.00 a month for access, with a 5 day free trial.

ALSO: DigiWaxx - http://www.digiwaxx.com - it's FREE to join, but before downloading the music, you must give complete, accurate and truthful feedback for the song you  are reviewing.

IMO, Radio Express, Promo Only, and XMix are all the higher priced services.

I would opt to go with MP3 Pool. Also, here is a link to a great article on record pools: http://www.digitaldjtips.com/2010/12/should-you-join-a-digital-record-pool

Would love to find a company that does this type of thing for the hard rock/metal genres. Guess I'll have to rely on Amazon.com/eMusic.com to get the latest in hard rock/metal for now......

TM Studios is reasonable.  They are also produce, or did a long time ago, radio jingles.

RadioSubmit.com
AllAccess.com (major label distribution - newest material)
DMDS.com (major label distribution)

I think you'll find most legit distributors will not charge radio stations. They only need to know that you are serious and will be in the business 2 years from now.

You should play quality artists for many of the key players in the industry to talk to you. Many will come to you once they know who you are. Not uncommon for big name artists or their management to make contact and ask you to play their songs.

TIP: Treat the artists nice and they will treat you the same way. Some artists are on tour and will do drops when they have time. You need to wait for them or they will ignore you. Could take six months!

Sometimes you may never be able to connect for an interview. It's just a matter of finding a time when the artist and you have an opening to talk.
