    This has puzzled me for years, how do you turn a unsolicited demo into a solicited.

    Everytime you check info or FAQ on some record labels they say you must submit it via a music manager, producer etc. So if you are a producer of music does that mean the demo is no longer unsolicited because you don't want a A&R agent using your demo to stand his coffee on as cup coaster.

    Although I've never read anything of the liking (could you give an example?) I'm sure it means that they only accept demos by people they already have a relationship with or from people whose reputation precedes them.

    Turning an unsolicited demo into a solicited could be achieved by simply calling them and get to talking the A&R.

    The only good pimp, is a dead pimp. People need to exploit their own skills and work, rather than helping capital and power to accumulate with a small minority. That's how people disempower themselves. Deal direct.
