Roundup of Music Gateway’s week:

HIP Video Promo:

We recently teamed up with HIP Video Promo to provide our members with the opportunity to receive $5000 worth of video promotion and a 5-week social media campaign. This week founder and ceo of HIP Video Promo Andy Gesner announced the video that will have their video promoted to the masses. We just want to say congratulations to Vama, you can see the video below.

We’ll be sure to follow up and see how the campaign is going.


There are only two days left to pitch your tracks for the chance to be signed by UNILAD for their upcoming label launch. Dominating the social media market this is an opportunity to get your music out there. Sound good to you? Make sure you pitch.

We’re getting closer to launching the sync portal working with hundreds of advertising agencies and music supervisors, this is a great way to get your music represented for sync opportunities. For more information click the image below
