Electronic EP - Get involved! 2008-09-18 19:17:53
It is the idea of a compilation album created to generate both revenue and exposure for the selected artists on said album. If you are at all familiar with the business industry, you'll know it's especially difficult to make a name for yourself when you work alone. This concept will hopefully provide a catalyst for many of the artists on Newgrounds.
The big picture is that by combining an assortment of tracks produced by the artists here on Newgrounds, you are actually increasing the likelihood of having your track(s) noticed, compared to going solo. In other words, the more the artists vary, the bigger the fanbase, which in turn provides more listeners for all of the tracks.
Each artist would submit one (1) selected track for the album, something that relates to electronic music, i.e. Techno, Trance, Dance, Ambient, Industrial, New wave, Drum 'n' Bass, Breakbeat, Miscellaneous etc. Once the tracks are compiled, you have no further obligations. Each artists' pay is discussed below.
Are you ready? YOU WILL PAY ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! That's right. All you will do is submit your track to the compilation and then earn your share profit (discussed below.)
I have worked with them for over a year now, so you have my word that the business is honest and fair.
Because I am paying for all launching expenses, I will be signed to the account. When profit is made, the sum TRACKS profit is divided into its respected quantities depending on how many copies YOUR track sold. The remaining profit, the ALBUM profit, will be equally divided amongst each contributer to the album.
The integrity policy is the number one rule here. Everyone is entitled to their own earnings, I am simply the facilitator of said earnings.
You can submit anything you like as long as it does not violate copyright laws and is (let's be honest) enjoyable to listen to. For obvious reasons, you cannot submit tracks already existing in the Newgrounds Audio Portal.
