Electronic dance music companies have been around for a while now. Because of this, online companies are able to reach an even larger audience than they previously could before. Their overhead expenses go down, and so does their bottom line. As a result, more electronic dance music companies are starting to offer downloadable downloads of their tracks. Some will charge you a one-time fee, and others will give it away for free.
This new trend is benefiting both the customers and the new music industry. The electronic dance music companies can reach a whole new audience without spending as much money as they did before. It is also opening up more doors for record deals, as the audience is now one that is interested in both independent and mainstream music genres. The labels are happy because they know that more people are interested in the kind of music they make. At the same time, these downloads are making the artists more popular, because fans want the songs instantly when they download them.
This is the perfect storm for the new artists and producers of electronic dance music. It is the perfect time to be making the big dollars that you always dreamed of. As a matter of fact, it is even better because the downloading models have made it easier for artists and producers to market themselves and their music directly to their fans. Imagine, with the Internet and the downloads, fans can petition their favorite artists… can they really do that? Of course not. But they can still email their concerns or problems to the artist, who can then solve them as he/she receives them from their fans.
And what about electronic dance music artists… can they benefit from this? For one thing, the Internet has made it very easy to reach out to many millions of new electronic dance music fans without spending thousands of dollars on advertisements. Just look at the success of Britney Spears and Beyonce. These girls have an amazing fan base. Even if these girls don’t release new music CDs, their fans still talk about them with all the excitement in the world.
Drug use has long been a problem in the music industry, but it has worsened over the last decade. The main cause is the emergence and popularity of ecstasy. People no longer view concerts and shows as opportunities to socialize with others. Instead, people now look forward to drugs and their associated moods and experiences after the concert. Concertgoers no longer have the opportunity to experience a band’s mix of emotions – all while enjoying their favorite music. But the electronic dance music industry has finally recognized the problems this has created for the drug use and abuse.
So what can the new artists and producers do to combat drug use while on tour? First of all, these artists need to stop putting themselves in front of the camera when they are performing. The media tends to paint these young up-and-coming artists as “bad guys” instead of using this medium to simply tell their side of the story. In addition, these artists should be encouraged by their record label and manager to share personal stories during their press tours. Sometimes, these stories may help to shed light on the real problems that the world is facing.
While many people still think of the electronic dance music scene as a nightclub scene, there are actually many alternative areas of it. For example, electronic dance music artists have formed their own clubs in cities all around the world. These clubs focus on particular genres such as electro-house, techno and breakcore and host regular shows featuring both up-and-coming acts and long-established veterans. This is truly a unique way for these artists to promote themselves. And in addition to promoting themselves, these clubs provide a great place for up-and-coming DJs to learn from established DJs.
Finally, some artists look to the electronic dance music industry for promotion but do not necessarily want to sign with an established company. In fact, there are several artists who are able to thrive in relative anonymity. In addition to the ability to work without the public eye, these types of artists often do not need the budget provided by major record labels. For these artists, signing with an internet based independent record company can be a great way to get noticed. As well, they may discover that they have a talent that cannot be found anywhere else.
