I'm not getting on the OP's case here, but I think this is reflective of a lot of bedroom producers. I used to believe this way as well--that one could just passively generate a fan base by uploading listenable music. Given what even free digital tools seem to promise, it seems possible. But the reality is the artist has to break the ice. There is a lot of noise in the average first, world Westernized mind.

The only way to maybe go about a legitimately passive route is to have fantastic music and and pay for it to be on Spotify.
