Cheers to folks in this thread re: the Distrokid recommend. Going to try and throw some stuff up in a bit - still feel (weirdly) like going through them vs Spotify directly is . . . more reliable? I don't know - I expect to make 0$ off of my music, I mainly just want to be able to add songs to playlists with other Spotify stuff/have all my music in one place. 

 

That being said - any advice on which account to get? It seems like the 20$ for one account would be more than enough, but I like the idea of having a 2nd, "WIP/Junk" account to house things that I'd rather never really share but might still want to listen to for mixing purposes, etc.

I'd suggest going with the cheapest account...using Spotify to house your tunes for 'not sharing' seems pretty counterintuitive to me (Soundcloud would be better for this eh?). But I guess it's all on you, I didn't see any reason for the upper tiers unless you wanted to stagger release dates or maybe for multiple artists accounts I think? Can't remember now.

 

Use my referral code and you'll get a discount and I'll get cash: https://distrokid.com/vip/seven/728195

 

But if you don't like me and want me to have money ( :emotawesomepm9:) then there's lots of discounts available for Distrokid sign up as well, check their blogposts on Medium or somewhere maybe (I did a few minutes of searching and got a good little discount)

Oh you know I'll get u dat cash :beer:

 

Yeah, it's mostly laziness/wanting to have everything in one place - but, like, stupid laziness; i.e., if I went through all the trouble of uploading stuff to Spotify to check a mix it'd be easier to do what I do now (which is to send to Google drive and play from there/download to phone). 

 

Expect OODLES OF MOOLAH COMING YOUR WAY SOON!!!!

Well I signed up and uploaded a few tracks.  It was all pretty painless actually, it was mainly just waiting for Distrokid and Spotify to connect so I can get the "Spotify For Artists" page working.

 

https://open.spotify...DS4iiA1DOiJ5Qtw

 

that's my artist page.  The 1st EP is quite old now as I'll be releasing things in order that they were done, the quality will pick up over the next few :D

Pre-saved lyst. Hoping your post means Satan will actually come spewing forth from the earth tomorrow  :happy:

 

EDIT: Not worth a thread bump so just editing this post - stuff is now up on Spotify (link in sig). Ta to Aux for the recommend/referral on Distrokid (still owe ya that fiver/a beer sometime :-))

the good thing about Distrokid is having up to 2 different names, so I've taken the opportunity to get an alias to put out all the more housey stuff I've had laying around not knowing what to do with.

 

Here's the profile, will have a couple more releases up in the next few months: https://open.spotify...VROiBS9_2rcHVuQ

 

Really wish I'd got into this earlier, really helps bring to an end the EP's I've had but not really done much with.

Lovin the stuff man.  Jamming to Worthier 2 right now.

 

I've been interested in making some more housey tunes myself, but I cannot pre-decide what I make when I sit down.  Whatever comes out comes out.

Messing around with some Spotify Pre-save options for my next single that's coming out in a week.

 

Not sure if it will do anything but hey what fuck why not try it out.  I see Bibio doing similar shit for his new album.  But then again he's having warp records pay for social media promotion of the shit heh.

I just started putting up stuff from one of my aliases here.

For now it's just commission work but I'll put up some personal works at some point.

Listened to this last night while doing the dishes/cleaning the kitchen (don't know why I mention that, not really pertinent). AnyWAy this stuff is ace - would encourage anyone who wants to give this a listen to do it on good headphones or a system, as it's quite lush/very well produced. 

 

What was this commissioned for? It feels vaguely cinematic but could also see it working well w/ multimedia installations n whatnot

Thanks man, glad the production sounds good to you as they were mostly made in a rush. 
This stuff is for presentations, short films etc. Mostly fashion industry stuff.

p.s. I find it almost physically impossible to do domestic tasks without music playing.

If this is the case, then I absolutely cannot wait to hear some stuff that is more "personal" n such  :flower:

 

Fashion industry eh? I'll have to put that in my head next time I listen to it. Fascinating. . . 

 

Re:domestic tasks - my wife has this longstanding battle with me re: listening to music while doing household tasks, as she says it's a way of distracting oneself from being present with the task at hand. And I half agree but also sometimes I'm like wtf I just worked a 10hr day can I least have my 15 mins of Aphex while scrubbing these forks ffs?

Music isn't distracting! It's enhancing.

 

I'll throw this playlist on while doing any tasks.  I do prefer the chiller stuff though when doing household work.

Well the good thing about deadlines is that they force your hand and things have a cut off point even if it means you don't get to refine everything you want to.

With personal stuff I usually get bored before finishing and start something else or endlessly mess around with it (every time you go back to a project you're a slightly different person) but I'm going to whack up a bunch of old stuff that I know I won't be going back to.

I hope your wife likes science because: music improves efficiency in completing repetitive tasks, increases speed and accuracy while decreasing stress in surgeons and making music while performing physical labour makes it easier. ;)

Know we're verging off topic but this https://open.spotify...8pHeey2EtpwvYtB  is my current "doing dishes" playlist. Trigger warning (for some) there is a lot of really terrible pop music on here. I mean, str8 up pop garbage but it's stuff that gets me moving so sry not sry
