What channel do you use to promote your music?

I've been a soundcloud user for the last 7-8 years, but recently I stopped my pro account. I feel that soundcloud is becoming more and more of a commercially driven platform, that does not give enough benefit to the artists - I dunno, might be just my thoughts, but I am simply not into it as I used to be in the past.

What channels do you guys use? Are there any valuable alternatives to SC?

cheers,
Yavor

I've been enjoying hearthis.at

Super easy to import anything you already have on soundcloud. Far more features than SC and it now has GROUPS!

Obviously less users but seems to be growing, which SC clearly isn't..................

Has been around for a while. I both produce and DJ and so used to enjoy using Soundcloud to post my own music and to find new interesting artists. When they dropped groups a few years ago that became a lot harder. When hearthis.at added groups I though I'd check it out.

If you really want to reach the masses consider ways to get on Spotify too.

I hate what SC has become too but find it hard to just give up my own profile after building it slowly over the last 5 or 6 years or so.

I think everyone feels that way. Bandcamp is good, not so much for singles, but for releases at least.

Soundcloud is terrible, but most labels only accept sc links as a submission.

I don't know...Too old for this new ultra-social-commercialized crap.


I still remember happy days of slsk, early myspace and free-parties to pass CD-Rs)

Did slsk change much? I think it still kicks ass but I've only been on for like 10 years

Playing it for people live is still the best way IMO.

Took it for a quick spin with my 'not on spotify' playlist (with some results but not all) to see how it's doing now, but now I see I misread.. You are using it but are asking about the past


So..it probably was not very different 15 years back from 10 years. Chat rooms were def more populated though. And big users with 'rules' in their directory structure.
