I'm not a DJ, but a producer and manager from Paris, France, and I created some pages on the site airplaydirect.com.
Is someone here using their services and downloading songs for airplay ??
Thanks in advance for your answers !
I have Artists contact me through musicsubmit. As a broadcaster, I find this a huge help for most genres. But there are not alot of Jazz Artists on there as yet. (Although Paul "Sequence" Ferguson found me there. * Thanks Paul hehe*
I also use Airplaydirect , programs like this that give the Artist the choice of whom to contact and who not, are invaluable to us. They give the Artist control, and they give the radio/media access to Artists who already know about us and are interested already in airplay. It sure cuts down the time for both Artist and folks like me doing hours and hours of searching .
I would love to get played on radio in France - my second home - but I'm not at all sure how this all works...........you can see what's happening with me on my page and I just started to
get some radio play in the US - but maybe you'd tell me what I need to do to use 'airplaydirect'.........merci bien Pascale
J'ai une site a airplaydirect, mais malheureusement je ne le trouve pas bien utilitse par les DJs. J'ai beaucoup de success quand j'envoie une e-mail aux DJs moi-meme. C'est plus demode, mais ca marche beaucoup mieux.
I hadn't heard of musicsubmit, but I will defnitely check them out now. Like some other folks have said here, I wasn't that impressed with the the service from Artist Direct. I tried it, but got a bit frustrated with it and lost interest.
Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
