Red Dragon Records is a relatively new but rapidly growing record label based in the south of the UK. It was designed and built around a business model that involved working with very new artists and the main ethos of the company since its inception is to help artists where possible whether signed to the label or not. To this end, we created a free mobile app (the only app of its kind at the time of writing). This app contains over 1,000 links to radio stations and blogs that have been vetted to ensure that they take music from unsigned or indie label artists. Furthermore there are sections for design companies, sites that will allow artists to find new sources of revenue or even giving artists companies that manufacture CD’s, websites or merchandise.

Attention bands and musicians: we need your help! We are beta testing our new audio QR Codes called tokkers and we’re looking for bands and musicians to try them out (for free!) and give us feedback.
When people scan a tokker that’s printed on your flyer, they can instantly hear your music, see a picture of you, find out more about you and where you’ll be playing, share it on Twitter and Facebook, email it to their friends, embed it in their web page, call or email you, and link to your website.

Music Powered Games announces Music Monsters Academy, the new mobile game app that lets artist entrepreneurs capitalize on the popularity of mobile games to sell their music and create mobile game revenues. The app will allow thousands of indie artists to give their own custom version of the game to all their fans. While playing the game on their iPhone or Android device, fans can buy the artist’s songs, buy the game levels for the songs, and share the artist’s game with their friends. With one-third of people in the U.S. over 13 play mobile games monthly*, Music Monsters will give indie artists affordable access to nearly 100 million US consumers playing mobile games.

This session explores the world of music creation and development from a mobile perspective
Recently, on ContentSphere.de I argued about how highly required it is for DIY artists to get mobile – to find a way for mobile communication with fans. Actually, it is key to truely connect with fans. Apparently, there’s a solution to that. Finally.
I know, it’s beaten to death… but – there is an app for that. Of course, the main issue in CwF (Connect-with-Fans) is authenticity. You can’t buy that, same with the quality of your music. Yet it is required to have something to grow that on. A medium like an app.
That’s why I was curious to see if there’s anything like that available for the common DIY artist. But first off, why is it necessary at all?
