    Posting Tracks, Not Knowing How to Mix It In

    I have posted multiple albums to the site now and I'm not clear on how to get those tracks into circulation. I would like to be able to attach my tracks to 'similar artists' but do know where that takes place.

    Also, just trying to play my tracks - I'm not sure where I can do that. Can I create a radio station with all of my label's artists? That would be a good place to start.

    Also, when searching for one of the artists (Dkeat) it doesn't come up in the music search. If I search Dkeat, artist, I get no results but if I search Dkeat in everything it shows all of the albums.

    Can someone please explain to me how you get your songs into circulation so that they come up in radio stations? If it is just a popularity thing than that might explain it because there isn't anybody seeking out my tunes but I thought this would be a way for artists to connect.

    Is there a well known tag for 'inexperienced'? How can I get my amateur recordings heard (without spending money)? Please and thank you.

  • You're correct, it takes some members finding you and playing your tracks. The more listeners and plays you get, the quicker your profile will generate a "Similar Artists Radio" station, based on what your fans enjoy listening to most often.

    The only other way to gain new listeners, is to purchase a PowerPlay Campaign from the Music Manager.

    You should take time out to read the Artist and Music Manager FAQ - It can answer alot of questions that will surely come up ;-)

  • You need about 5-15 listeners before your similar artists are generated and we can create a radio station for you. The quickest way to do this is to ask all of your friends and fans to sign up to last.fm and start scrobbling your music.

    You might also find the suggestions on the following page helpful:

    There are also a number of groups and services to help promote your artist on Last.fm.

    e.g. http://www.last.fm/group/Central+Point%3A+where+artists+and+listeners+meet

    Is it Christmas yet?

    thats good advice no doubt but what can you suggest if you have tried all of the above and it still isn't getting any plays? Because theres a bunch of artists/labels who's stuff isn't showing up on any radio or getting any plays HERE... http://www.last.fm/forum/6666/_/751170 and no-one from last.fm has even acknowledged us yet (over a month now)

    PLEASE! Thanks!

  • I have gave you two more options to solve this here: http://www.last.fm/forum/6666/_/751170/1#f15249386
