Easy! Just looking for a bit of advice…
Got a folder with 3 dubs which I want to send about to a couple DJ’s, I know which ones to try get a hold of, but what do I say to them/call the email?
I know it sounds a bit daft, but I genuinely have no idea
‘hi my name is… i just wanted to show you my music’
depending on how kind you are and what u think about the person you are sending it to, some words about that.
Know it sounds a bit stupid but I wanted to find the right balance, don’t want to seem a dick, but don’t want to sound like a lick arse.
Cheers for the advice!
Cheers for that bro, helped a lot
i messaged someone on twitter once with the link and ¯_(ツ)_/¯ symbol
they didnt reply
“yo bro heres some traks”
Thats pretty much what i do
Works out ok
But yea make sure theyre 320 (or wavs i guess) n the file name is “artist name -track name”
Looking at the old forum page and how they mention vinyl i have a question. Has anyone back in the olden vinyl days ever received a shitty dub plate with bad tunes on it. What do you do when that happens?
sexy producers in your area want to link up with you
it’d get someones attention today, vivek posted on facebook looking for the guy that gave him a dubplate at system party on new years, and that tune did get a release
but really it’d be about the tunes received, if they’re good they’d get cut and people do that themselves man, i’m sure someones done that in the past- i think the dmz people when they were really young and unknown used to cut plates and give them to hatcha to play so i’m sure some young producers cut something shit, but i’m also sure hatcha wouldn’t have played the dubplate unless he wanted to play the tune
a better idea is rolling to nights where you rate the artists, with a cd of some tunes in hand, then meet face to face and hand over is a really nice way to do it and might make you stand out more for getting involved in the scene
but honestly dansci it’s just about emailling the right tune to the right person
Drop bullshit and let the music talk.
And most importantly, have a both private soundcloud link and download link.
We get spammed with a crazy ass fuck amount of music, so having a fast stream to listen to it is much simpler and less time consuming.
what do I say to them
Hi DJ Name,
insert link to music
call the email
Producer Name Dubs
I don’t think many DJ’s really give a shit about pleasantries and small talk…unless they’re totally snowed under you can be pretty sure they’ll check your music out. If they like it you can be pretty sure they’ll play it and check anything you send them in future…that’s their job!
its funny because with djs and labels what usually happens is it starts of all formal in the initial emails and a few msgs later its all safe g big tunes init brap
im never formal when I send tunes
literally the first time i sent slimzee tunes the email was like “wag1 big don slimzee heres some dubs from me, hope you enjoy”
if the tunes are good the djs will play em, simple. no need for formalities imo
Heard Kahn & Neek dropping one of your bits the other day, big up
This might be a weird idea, but I’m going to a show that a big dubstep DJ is playing and was thinking about bringing one of my acetates to give him as a token of my appreciation, but I also feel like that would be weird, you guys have opinions on doing that?
Ah I just saw that you asked this.
I would recommend it… What dubstep DJ is it?
