    Nice track. Thanks for sharing your music. Do you know what every successful artist will tell you? Never give up. Never stop believing in your self, and in your music. Keep on trying!

    Wudup firewalker, this track bangs! What have you heard from labels so far? I'm a bit confused, it's got everything including the hot vocal. Are you playing shows?

    What's the rest of your portfolio sound like? Is there cohesion? They're not going to sign you if this is all you have... this one is good but not good enough. The entire middle section (1:32-2:35) drags on and takes too long to resolve. An entire minute of lag... it needs more energy. The whole thing does.
    However, I listened to some of your other tracks and I liked "Give it Up" best but that's another style... you have too many different genres going on and while I personally think that's a good thing, labels do not. They want to pigeon-hole you into a genre... so consider yourself lucky that you haven't found the label that wants YOU for who you really are.

    Just keep your nose to the grindstone. It will happen when it's supposed to happen. I know... I worked (MANY years ago) at Interscope Records, Silas Records, Capitol Records and Warner Bros. but their line of thinking hasn't changed as much as they think they have.

    If youre getting gigs why do you need a label? Id be going for a manager.
    All a label is in reality is a bank. If you're after that Million dollars, You know you pay that back? With intrest.

    Labels are so far past us im surprised there are still ones out there.
    Look for a manager, someone to get you out there more. But signing over your song rites to some random because he has a loan for you isnt the best idea. Gotta do this stuff for the love cause the money just isnt there.

    Maybe its different in Genre whats a label do for someone like this?
    Quality A1 sounds just as good as anything else ive heard from this genre.

    My personal only reason ever for singing would be to use a professional studio.
    I guess im just curious what they offer to someone like your self that youre seeking.

    Great production. You need a manager not a label.

    What do you need a label for, when all the tools you need to become successful in music are easily accessible and free?

    Only thing a label can do for you, is front you a lot of money and make you indebted to them. They're useless

    Wear it with a badge of honor and don't ever give up! Just keep building your audience and the labels will come knocking.

    first off, the music industry ain't what it used to be, Most labels sign new acts to what basically becomes a distribution deal.
    2nd, it's the 21st century you really don't need a label to get your stuff heard, making music is one thing. but you have to be able to promote yourself and god knows there are MANY ways to do this via social media.
    3. you're going to have to invest in yourself before anyone else does. get creative on how to get the message out there. keep pounding labels, game manufacturers, media outlets( music for TV, adverts, video, YouTubers, internet radio etc). and DJ's a lot of DJ all DJ's someones gonna dig it. and slip it in there set eventually.
    4. sell yourself, its a hustle the days of a fat guy with a cigar walking in with a Contract tellin you "your gonna be a star kid" are well over
    burn some discs or vinal and hand people a track or 2 and for god sakes copyright your stuff so others don't take credit for your music!!!!!

    send an email with a dropbox link to your track and send it to [email protected] in the message body type Demo Reel, its an agency for all big labels and your track will be massed mailed to every label on their books, i did this and have had 8 tracks released over 3 months, good luck

    def sounds like rinzen from mau5trap. and yeah it is good man. i don't know why you want to be dependent on record labels. they do suck. i was also looking for the labels. but nah i don't think i need them anymore. being unique is the key. money is not the issue because in music struggle is always going to be there. this is good song with vocals i really like it. i am a shit person with only electronic shit and no vocals. i am pretty bad with vocals myself.

    This track could get a release, judging what's already out there.
