Sleepy Saturday

By CatchinAshes on January 13, 2024 10:54 am

Hey, everyone! I can't believe it's already Saturday and I have a gig tomorrow! Time flies when you're busy, right?

This week, I've been doing a lot of research on how to release my music on streaming platforms. It's something I've never done before, and there's so much to learn and do. But I'm determined to do it right and get some* of my music off my hard drive.

I appreciate your love and feedback I'll got back and properly comment when the reply bug is sorted.

Love that synth sound. It's cool how it still holds up without a bassline too.

As far as getting out the streaming platforms, Ditto is a pretty good aggregator, which doesn't take a cut. Good if you want to release a lot of stuff, but it does have a yearly fee. If you want to do a lower volume of releases, then probably one of the legacy aggregators like CD Baby will be fine.

How did the gig go? I like these strings on this simple beat, they add a nice layer on top. Regarding releasing tracks on platforms, I have heard that Distrokid is not bad? They do not really do additional copyright registration, but it seems pretty easy to distribute to all platforms at a decent price. I have used other solutions, but they tend to be a bit expensive. Not a specialist, just sharing my 2 cents.

Congrats on the gig! Have fun, great track!

nice chord progression choices!  Nailed the oldschool house flavour.  Simple and to the point

Beautiful uplifting melodies! I'm also looking into how to release on streaming platforms. It's good to finally take the step to let your creations out into the world

Lovely disco tune, just a bit too short to get into the groove
