Get by with a little help from our friends…


Although it can be rewarding, there can be many challenges to being an independent artist in the music industry. One of the major challenges can be getting yourself out there and broadcasting your hard work. That’s where promotion companies come in. Well-connected industry members who run promo companies can get your music out to prestigious tastemakers, this includes DJ’s, reviewers and bloggers which is significantly more effective than putting a small amount of into Facebook and Twitter ads.

It’s A Promo Thing

With this in mind we’re happy to say we’ve teamed up with “It’s A Promo Thing’ and ‘It’s A Plugging Thing”, a highly respected PR team who have connections all across the industry. They predominantly work with artists of the electronic genre, helping them push their names out in the industry by sending their music to tastemaker DJ’s, ranging from DeadMau5, Skrillex, to Eric Prydz, SHM, and Tiesto.

‘It’s A Promo Thing’ also has a close working relationship with bloggers from around the world. Don’t underestimate the power of giving free mixes and tracks away on blogs with links to buy the rest of the package.

However, this isn’t the only thing they offer, ‘It’s A Plugging Thing’ covers the radio side of the promo; they provide you the chance to plug your music on radio and have it heard by DJ’s from Radio 1, Kiss FM, Capital FM and Rinse FM.

Promo A Thing with It’s a Promo Thing
