T-Pain Knows Tech (and CoPromote)

CoPromote has always known T-Pain was tech savvy. He was one of our firstBand of the Month judges when CoPromote was still Headliner.fm.

Check out this interview he did with The Verge on how tech and apps shaped his sound.

Kudos, T-Pain!

Featured CoPromoter: Electronic Duo Worldwide Groove Corporation

Before CoPromote came into existence, we used to be an app for musicians called “Headliner.fm”. Our Featured CoPromoter of the Week, electropop duo Worldwide Groove Corporation, has been a member ever since, and reached over 18 million people via CoPromote. Their songs are a combination of groovy beats, chill out instrumentals, and imaginative lyrics. Give them a listen the next time you’re in the mood for a chill out session.

1. What type of creator are you?
We are an electronic music duo, currently putting out one new music release a month for a year.  We’re calling it the Year of the Groove.


2. How do you use CoPromote?
Each month we put out our new music release, we send out links through social media.  CoPromote has helped to amplify that message!

3. Have you found any other musicians on CoPromote?
Yes, and actually I’ve gotten into the routine of following people on Twitter when they retweet our message, even if it’s through CoPromote.  I figure we are all trying to do what we can to get our message out there, so we might as well connect and be a community.


4.  What is one song of yours that you feel best captures your aesthetic?
We are quite diverse in the songs we release since they are created for different purposes.  I think of the last year’s worth of releases, the song Glitter & Bliss seems to bridge both ends of the spectrum between mindless easy chillout and epic electronica with metaphorical lyrics.

Featured CoPromote of the Week: Music Blogger EDM Nerd

Screen Shot 2015-05-18 at 4.02.25 PM

Unlike traditional music blogs where they share and review new artists and albums, EDM Nerd takes a look at the behind the scenes of the electronic dance music scene. Sean, the creator of the blog, writes about the business and marketing side of what goes into making a song a hit. For any musician but particularly those in the electronic genre, Sean’s blog is a must for updates in the industry. We got in touch with Sean to speak to him about how he uses CoPromote, and his music suggestions. Read the interview below!

1. What type of creator are you?

I’ve been writing about dance music since late 2012. What started as a small blog of me just sharing the music I was listening to at the time grew into freelancing for one of my favorite DJs and covering more of the Washington, DC music scene. However, earlier this year, I decided to scrap that and start an entirely new project. By completely rebranding, and focusing more on the business, technology, and data behind the dance music scene, EDM Nerd was born. While I still spend plenty of time discovering and listening to new music, EDM Nerd has combined my passions for music, business, and analysis into something truly unique that I’m very excited about.

2. What do you use CoPromote for?

I originally started using CoPromote just as another channel for sharing my blog posts. I quickly discovered that it was also a great source of content. While I often suffer from writer’s block, my tweet-block is generally even stronger. CoPromote allows me to rapidly sift through relevant content and share articles and music that I think my readers and followers will enjoy. But getting the extra visibility to my own writing is pretty great too.

3. Have you found any other users on CoPromote who you now listen to?

Definitely. There are a few artists and fellow music curators that I have followed outside of CoPromote. Recently with the change in focus of my blog, I’ve found myself reading a lot of the posts in the business & startup sections for both inspiration and advice that I try to apply in my own work.

4. What is one song of yours that you want people to hear?

One song? Hmm… Well, the album that I’ve been listening and re-listening to the most lately has got to be Galaxies Between Us by Kill Paris. It’s got way more funk and soul than a lot of electronic music out now, and I totally dig that.  Also, my soundcloud page (soundcloud.com/edmnerd) is always being updated with my favorite new tunes to nerd out to.

Social Media’s Impact on Digital Music Sales

Via ReadWriteWeb:  “according to data from Next Big Sound. For 38% of musicians, Facebook views had a significant effect on album sales, a stronger impact than traditional radio plays had. VevoYouTube and SoundCloud all ranked highly as well.”

No surprise that artist websites come first, but it’s interesting to note that Wikipedia ranks 4th, just below Facebook and Radio. “The Future Of Music Is… Wikipedia??” Who would have thunk it?
