Icon4 The IDMf Beat Tapes are done

Hey guys,

So Benwaa and the mods have been talking about the state of the beat tapes sub label and after careful consideration have decided to put an end to it for a number of reasons:

First of all, this was a lot harder to handle than I thought it would have been and due to my life stuff going on I was not able to invest more time into the sub label. Secondly, mods were concerned with the quality of the beat tapes and that they were not up to the standard the IDMf Netlabel is all about. I can't really comment on the quality but the number of submissions for the most part were always something that cheesed me. Perhaps I was wrong when I thought we'd have plenty of submissions at the start of this all but it was mostly from a few core members which leads me to one last thing.. IDMf Beat Tapes didn't pick up nearly as much as expected. Neither releases on the Bandcamp page went past 50 downloads (majority of those probably from forum members) and only forum members were following the Soundcloud page for the most part. I tried my best with promoting it outside of the actual promotions period but I can only spam so much. It's pretty discouraging and in that regard I'm somewhat relieved to have it over (especially if nobody actually cares about it aside from a few members here).

With all of that said, it has been decided that IDMfBT003 will be the final beat tape and after that this thing gets shut down. We apologize to all those who submitted for IDMfBT004 and IDMfBT005 but there is still a chance for you to get the tracks on IDMf039 (open genre compilation). For those who submitted two tracks this will be the one time you are permitted to submit two to a Netlabel compilation.

Lastly, I'd just like to apologize to everyone for how this turned out.

edit:

I would also like to thank all of the genre managers who helped me out with this whole thing. They put a lot of work into those beat tapes and should be recognized for it.

Gutted.
Better get on the wi-fi and submit to the open genre and pray to gods I've got a chance.

Bugger, Kong..(not "BUGGER KONG"..but "Bugger..Kong" ), that really sucks..but I can't say it comes as a surprise tbh..seems peeps here are more the talking kind than the doing kind..and that's a REAL shame, as has been seen with the Radio and lack of support there of in general.

Oh well..guess it's been fun..but..

Re: The IDMf Beat Tapes are done

you'll have to change the info details and send it to the appropriate soundcloud link that benwaa posted (which is to the netlabel's dropbox).

@AM: yeah it's a shame but there are always compilations being run by benwaa so that's something to work towards.

Re: The IDMf Beat Tapes are done

Really Kong, thanks for the update on this. It is a lot of work indeed and people don't realize that a lot of us volunteer our time to try and bring the community together and get some of the exposing and advertising that people claim to want so much actually done.

Respect homie.

Re: The IDMf Beat Tapes are done

One question: I take it folks who submitted tracks to the "scrapped" tapes are now free to post their tracks here and elsewhere?

Just thought we should clear the point up..obvious I know..but some might now understand fully, if you get my meaning.

Aww - that's sad to hear.

Thanks for giving it a try Kong and others involved. Was a cool idea for a project with all the different genres going. Seemed like there was lots of interest in the project - I guess interest and submitting a tune are two different things.

Not sure what the next steps are in getting people who participate in IDMF supporting this community more. Don't feel too bad guy - life is busy.
