Dotted Music Releases The Electronic Artist Success Recipe Box [Free For Limited Time]

Dotted Music’s Andrew Apanov is kicking off their new We Spin business training program for electronic music DJs and producers with a free bundle of audio and video interviews. The interviews include some ideas that are important for all DIY and indie musicians but the focus is always on the distinctive needs of electronic musicians. This is not production oriented material but rather focuses on the business side of things.

You may know Andrew Apanov from Dotted Music which provides a variety of marketing and web services for musicians. Apanov also produces the Stand Above The Noise video interview series with music business professionals which we’ve been premiering here at Hypebot.

In an email Apanov explained a bit of the rationale behind the We Spin training program and community, which starts in the fall, as well as the free bundle of business interviews:

“The tips that apply to bands do not always work for electronic artists. Most of the promotional and business advice still works, but there are a number of specifics (to start with, indie labels have always been key players in any electronic genre, and now their impact is only raising; so the popular ‘you don’t need a label’ advice sounds odd to a producer).”

He also pointed out:

“90% of producers I’ve met and consulted have no idea what to do with their music other than ‘sending it to labels’ and through We Spin they will be able to learn how to brand themselves, use non-music hobbies and interest as their USP (unique selling proposition), build fanbases, partner with brands, approach labels and bloggers the right way, book DJ and live gigs and so on.”

“The community part (technically, it will be a subscribers-only forum) is for getting answers to any marketing and business questions, like a one-stop destination for all things related to running an electronic music business career. I will be providing personal support and assistance to every member in there. There will also be monthly webinars for subscribers, invited guests, special offers.”

The free for a limited time Electronic Artist Success Recipe Box is available in exchange for an email address, which will get you more info on the upcoming program, and contains the following:
