    i cant listen to your link right now but "jump up with something different" is what i look for at Multi Function Music.

    AIM it across to: DJLevela

    cheers

    putting music on soundcloud is a sure fire was to make sure no label will want to sign it

    whos going to press up a record thats already public domain

    not sure if i totally agree vapour
    many labels check tracks out thru soundcloud and anyways if it were to get signed then itll be removed from there anyway...about 5 people have listened to it on soundcloud, is that really an issue? maybe it is i dunno.

    i think what vapour means is post up a clip,not the full tune. Normaly a label will take an interest to an artist through soundcloud then the label may ask them to send sum bits through that arent on a public site.

    this is my experience of it... i rarely use the feedback bit on the forum anymore unless i'm stuck with a tune cos i'd rather not have unreleased stuff on my SC!

    yeah man... 320 mp3 is ideal to send as its best file quality to transfer speed ratio (y)

    cool
    I see what you mean about putting clips up but at the moment i don't think my tunes are at the level they need to be so thats why i post up full ones for feedback from peeps, see what i mean?

    If your tracks arent up to scratch then labels arent really going to be looking for them i'd imagine (not in a bad way on you, i havent checked the tracks).

    Keep tracks offline if youre hoping for label interest. Don't send them around to everyone. Full 320 mp3s over aim or soundcloud works best for me, however lots of people have different preferences.

    having tracks on soundcloud is a good way to get noticed, we have tracked a few artists over soundcloud..just cos the tracks are public doesn't mean shit, if its a 30 second / 1 minute clip who cares if its online, as long as its not a full track which is rippable its all good, and no reason why they can't be signed.
