Join thousands of creatives in our global community

This week we’re recovering from All That Matters and preparing for Midem. It’s a full house in the office with all systems go and keeping in the positive spirit we’re offering users the chance to upgrade their project to On Spec for free! We’ve interview a record label using the remix project to find remixers for their artists and spoke to a record label who’ve previously found remixes for their artist, Kasey Musgraves.

On Spec allows project owners to take multiple pitchers through to the Workspace without committing to work with them. This means project owners can sample various remixes before deciding which one to go with.

 

Remix projects are a great way for artists and bands to expand their fan base as well as creating a new lease of life for a previously released track.  As side from this, we’re a big believer in people collaborating and working together in order to learn and develop as creatives. There is no industry where this is more important than the music one…

 

This is where Music Gateway comes in; Create Your Own Opportunity

 

Grammy Nominated Kasey Musgraves Acquires Remix 

 

Rising independent record label ‘Triple Pop’ is a brilliant example of how well remix projects work through our platform. Triple Pop needed a remix for multiple Grammy nominated artist ‘Kacey Musgraves’s next single “See You Again” (due for release later this summer) and they were more than pleased with the result!

 

Using Music Gateway was great. Lots of great talented remixers/electronic artists, professional introductions and good communications. The remixer we chose “Still” did a great job remixing “See You Again” and we’re very happy with it. I’ve gone through about a half dozen remixes with other artists in the past and his was the best to date. I found Music Gateway to be a fantastic resource for finding remixers and I’ll be using the site again for sure.
