"I'm an artist." This quote embodies what we @lostmymindmgmt seek to bring out of every individual that we work with. Upon crossing paths with @ashriser and learning of his motto of artist embodiment, we soon realized how the three of us could bring our minds together to continue pushing forward creativity inside the arts. With his knowledge of the industry, passion for his music, and desire to incubate the independent artists that he believes in, Ash Riser has been a guide for us in realizing our own creative dreams and a mentor towards inspiring others to fight for something remarkable #imanartist
@Regrann from @djprgirl - KNOW WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR! I got a call yesterday from a Manager of a Rapper from NYC that is looking for Radio Promotions. I asked is the song currently on FM Radio? He said Yes its being played in Cleveland, Boston and Chicago. So I looked up the song in Mediabase (which tracks FM Radio Spins) He had zero spins on the record. I asked if the stations that the songs are on are indicator stations? ( a station that doesnt report to BDS or Mediabase but can still move a record in Market). He didnt know what that was and said that DRT is handling his Radio Promotions. He thought that His song was on a station like 99 Jamz or Hot 97.
Now I get this scenario weekly. Indie Rappers and their Managers think they have a #1 song in the country or being spun on FM Terrestrial Radio Stations across the country according to their DRT reports. In most cases its not true because if it was Your record would pop up registered in BDS or Mediabase. You will see songs from Major Labels or Artists on the DRT Charts because they are getting FM Spins, Charting with Billboard etc. Thats not because of DRT.
DRT is great because as we know Digital Music is the way of the music industry. Online Radio is very important. Look at all the popular podcasts. However its still hard to track record spins on these stations. Some online radio stations are registered with BDS or Mediabase.
Indie Rappers & Managers of said Indie Rappers. I know that You want to have Your song on Radio which is the goal. But know how radio works and what You are paying for. #radio#dj#rappers#bookings#indieartist#indie#artistmanager#mixshow#hiphop#linkinbio#musicindustry#hiphop#music#radiospins - #regrann
"You were a tree and I was a rope swing;
You grew deep and I frayed, and now,
I'm so afraid that all we have
Is tired and rotting wood." Go ahead - go buy some awesome music. #avoidingtrainwrecks#hidturner2#poetry#indieartist
