Re: Selling your music.

Just think of the law of supply and demand - there are four thousand something "progressive house" tracks released every year according to wikipedia which must mean at least tens of thousands of tracks in the electronica style overall... and the stuff just gets easier and easier to make. In about 20 years at this rate, a house track will be as easy to make as a photograph or a poem.

Now look at what's on the demand side... youtube covers of well-known pop songs by attractive performers and whatever gets tied in with TV/Movie releases.

You make money by having something desirable and scarce. I just don't see how you/we are going to make any money following the rules of mass music.
