beatport works like any other digital shop only they take "picks" not everything thrown at them.. same as Bleep.
even if you use an aggregator like tunecore, IODA etc there is no guarantee of getting on beatport or bleep. it really helps if you know someone or are somewhat successful. i have a friend who got his stuff on beatport after MONTHS of emails and schmoozing. I asked him "who i had to screw to get on beatport?" and his reply was "everyone".
i've been using IODA for years and still can't get on beatport or bleep but my label's stuff is everywhere else. i've emailed them directly, sent promos, letters etc.. no dice.
Hey guys. Can anyone point me in the direction of an actual label that I can submit my work with. I think I am ready to get some real world feedback on a track I have been working at for a bit.
i wouldn't expect feedback. they'll either like it and want to release it or you will not hear from them. labels generally don't have time to provide feedback to everyone who sends them material. it's hard enough just to listen to it all. even some of the smaller labels that accept demos get thousands of them every year.
