Your Music on Internet Radio

Hey

Did we introduce you to Jango Airplay for DIY music promotion yet?

Do you ever think, wouldn’t it be nice if I could…

  • get my music played to people all around the world?
  • have it mixed into online radio stations that are playing popular music similar to mine?
  • gather information about who it is played to and how well it was received?
  • see specifics about the people that like my music?

That’s exactly what Jango Airplay does! Best of all, you can set this up in a matter of minutes – and, as a TuneCore artist, you can get free bonus plays on Jango.

Jango Airplay is a powerful promotional tool for DIY artists and here’s why:

# 1 Exposure (the Smart Kind)
Jango plays your music to a very large and real audience – their online radio stations have 8 Million listeners – and you decide who hears your music. If your music is similar to Eminem, you get played to people who like Eminem. If you think your music does better with fans of Lady Antebellum, you direct your campaign to their fans. You can also target your promotion to specific states or countries. In a nutshell, you get exposure to the people who are most likely to become your fans.

# 2 Get New Fans
When your songs play on Jango Radio, your listeners are encouraged to interact with you. They can like your music, become your fan, and also share their contact info. Plan ahead by informing fans in a certain region about an upcoming gig, build up hype for a new album you just dropped, or simply add new fans to your mailing lists.

# 3 Reports and Insights
Jango gives you detailed, daily reports on the things you care about: plays, likes, fans, and more. These reports are not just data; they answer questions like “which song is most likely to be a hit?” or “does my music generate better response in California or New York?”

Thanks for reading.

Pay Off

I get down sometimes because I’m my hardest critic even before I look to say something about others. So I’ll be the first to say that my momma raised me better than I act at times.(Momma told me to speak like I got a college degree- J. Cole) I have to credit that with why I haven’t gone off the deep end. Especially when I see how many lames, marks, tricks, skips, scabs, and scallywags are out here living it up. You know those times you realize that you work too damn hard and the bum you just gave a dollar to hops into a benz and uses your dollar for toll money? That’s how I’ve been feeling lately. I’m sure that’s how a J. Cole or a Wale feels when they can give you a classic mixtape and they turn on the radio and Solja Boy or Waka Flocka (yeah, I know Wale did a song with him but it was the hottest verse on the song) gets played every 7 minutes. It has to hurt. But right when you feel like all these shady, crooked, half way illiterate MFers are doing way better than you just remember they caught your boy Qaddafi in a sewer. The U.S. claimed he had BILLIONS embezzled. That’s Oprah money. Swizz Beats/ Alicia Keys money gets you an African village and he supposedly had Oprah money and was caught in a sewer? No matter. That just goes to show when you are doing the wrong thing whether for 42 minutes or 42 YEARS like Qaddafi it will come back to you. Vice versa if you stay focused and do what you are supposed to do, even if it takes long, the grind will pay off.

Cleveland’s Machine Gun Kelly

So in between the Sideline Story and jamming to new mixtapes from Wale and Meek Mill I had a chance to check out Rage Pack by Cleveland native Machine Gun Kelly, MGK or Kels for short. He’s got an affiliation with Diddy and as we all know thats only good for the length of time that you stay associated with him (see Loon, Dream, any number of “Da Band” members). With that said lets put the focus on the actual music. MGK actually has a decent tape in Rage Pack. Hype songs in “STFU” and “Wild Boy” (if you can stand the Waka Flock feature). Heartfelt joints like “Chasing Pavements” and even story telling with “On Fire”. Rage Pack is a decent outing if you looking for something to tide you over til Ambition and Radioactive come out.
