The Music Department covers all areas of music promotion, focusing on mixshow, college, club, online, and every other vital category that reaches music trendsetters across the world to guarantee the creation of a solid base for any artist. Here our promotion tactics range from one-one-one DJ calls to product cross promotions with various DJ’s, radio stations, and other key music outlets to gain support and spins on our clients behalf.  Our veteran captains are responsible for leading the direction of each project that we undertake. The strength of our captains is the ability to break a new record and immediately create a solid base for it that can then be used to develop extensive marketing and promotion initiatives. Following the initial synopsis on each project, they will outline a plan for maximum exposure and delegate responsibilities to the rest of the promotion team to move forward working your record on a month-to-month basis. The in-house staff is responsible for carrying out the plan crafted by the captains and use their relationships and years of music industry experience to gain airplay in select markets and/or targets. It is their insight, coupled with their captains that set the guidelines and execution of your project. As a complete team, they are responsible for communicating with DJ’s, Personalities, and Music & Programmers in their selected markets to ensure additional support and airplay.

Our overall vision behind the Music Department is to produce tangible results and increase the exposure of each project we lend our expertise to. Even when labeled the hardest record to work according to industry standards, still aims to create positive, beneficial results for our clients. This department does exactly that and more.

Why Is It So Important?
The Music Department is a hybrid promotion company that utilizes a combination of various off-line and on-line promotional tactics and outlets to break records nationally & internationally. Specializing in all forms of promotion, from advanced music follow-through to Urban & Rhythmic Radio airplay and audience, our department has developed priceless relationships that create results in both formats. Additionally, our department also concentrates on the “Record Breakers” who ultimately are responsible for introducing the music to the masses first. We compose and execute promotion plans tailored to your projects interests with the objective of gaining national radio airplay by monitored stations (BDS & Media Base). The Music Department works directly with radio professionals including Mixshow Jocks, On-Air Personalities, Music Directors, and programmers to obtain spin detections and rotations at all monitored stations, giving your project the advantage over other songs. Currently there are over 140 urban and rhythmic stations that we service, monitor and call daily.

PROMOTIONAL SERVICES:
Tracking Follow Up (Music Promotion Base Building)
After servicing your record through the Digital DJ Pool, it is essential to follow through with strategic, individual, outreach to each and every DJ and music trendsetter that downloads your projects music. Our in-house staff is responsible for reaching out to each person individually and creating additional airplay and opportunities for your project. Whether it’s an interview, show booking, or drop request, our job is to maximize your songs exposure and create a stronger base by reaching each member personally on your behalf.

Mixshow Promotion
Mixshows are specialty shows that allow DJs to mix records live on the air or submit pre-recorded mixes that are aired on commercial and non-commercial radio. For most records, this is the first tier of breaking records at radio because of the freedom that mixers have to be innovative. Mixshows give DJs the ability to break new records by playing them at an early stage and introducing new music to the masses. Mixshow slots can be as short as 10 minute “Quick Mixes” or as long as 72 hour “Mixshow Marathons”, but most mixshows are between 1 and 4 hours. What makes the mixshow format so unique is its freedom. This is still the primary radio format that allows music to be played on commercial radio without dealing with radio programming and/or politics.
