    Why?

    Your music is awsome especially Melodic Dub.
    You should increase your plays and downloads.
    Going to upload some of my tracks soon and I would like your thoughts on how to get more fans.
    One of my buddies is using softwares like SoundcloudAutomator to promote himself.
    Let me know your opinion.

    Talk soon,
    briannaduncanpa

    Actual message I got^^^ Apparently, you can have a bot work for you. What shit.

    Bots, bots everywhere!

    EDIT--

    btw, did they increase the total minutes you can upload? Weren't it only 2 hours for the free plan?

    I prefer the ones with big asses instead. In fact, I'm thinking on how would they scream if we slap them in the buttocks. Would it be a vocoded shriek?

    Yeahh yes.... a fellow ass man. Love me some big black booties, lol. White chicks have asses now too... well, they always have. But telling a white chick they got a fat ass used to be a bad thing. Were as now it a compliment, so their dressing them white asses up now and bring them out to the club in all their glory.

    Yesterday I received an e-mail saying about this new thing on soundcloud, where you'll have some kind of partnership with them, and get some revenue from adds. Is that true? Is it something like the partnership with youtube to get revenue from your videos?

    The only thing I could manage to understad is that it's still at a developing stage, and only available for US producers, and by invitation from them.

    So about once a day I now get play and like from a different person who never makes music but always has the same repost list. I think these bots are artist paying for bot services.

    I read somewhere that a guy made this research and yes, those bots are linked to other bots that are linked to specific artists/labels. Even our beloved Noisia guys are listed there.

    EDIT --

    actually I could find the link of the article:

    For what it's worth I'm barely active on SC but will generally play/like the other forum members I follow there. Holden is awesome btw. I just couldn't come up with a more meaningful comment, so probably look bottish!

    :lol: I know you and thank you. I am always great full when you visit me. These things are at first, looking like real people, but then you notice that they all repost the same songs in the same order.
