Club spins are cool, radio spins are great, but coverage in the media is what really makes you a household name.

In this sold-out werkshop, Neima Abdulahi (@neimerdreamer) shared the importance of pitching your music and content to media sources, be it MTV or CNN. She also shared tips on how to go about the pitch, proper netwerking, and how important it is for artists to be aware of what is going on in their community, along with the community’s history.

Yesterday we completed That Tight Thirty Two On Thurzdayz Emcee and Producer competition to set off the third season! Some emcees delivered bars with ease while others took their time to get it right. We need your help deciding the victor. Think you can do that?

Starting a new series dedicated to the intricate lines delivered by iconic emcees. The first for this series is with Ras Kass. The owner of Patchwerk Recording Studios, Curtis Daniel III and friend to Ras created the concept. Throughout Ras’ career he has had a lot of people tell him how much they like his lyrics.

When all else fails just remember the music keeps on playing! Thus the case with our latest episode of Cookies and Lemonade featuring new host Porchia Marie. Every week we will review a number of submissions sent in by you the consumers and artist of new singles seeking feedback. 

This JUST IN! We’ve announced the winner of the Tight 32 Producer contest Bosa Got Beats Monday night on Cookies and Lemonade with our new host Porchia Marie! It was a highly anticipated night with all of the contest participants tuned in to see who’s beats were going to be the official beats of the event on Thursday! At the end of Cookies and Lemonade the winner was announced and with Bosa Got Beats tuned in the energy was palpable.

The Tight 32 Emcee and Producer Contest is entering its third year.  I wanted to share where I think the gifted are missing their shot at maximizing the opportunities presented through the IdOMUSIC & Patchwerk Recording Studios platform. 

IdOMUSIC kicked the year off with a packed house Thursday night, at Apache Café. Every first Thursday of the month we bring artists, producers, bloggers, engineers, and music lovers together in order to learn, netwerk, promote, and perform.

Thanks to the added momentum of artist such as Stormzy, Skepta, Wiley and more the genre known as Grime is now officially it's own category on streaming giant Spotify. Mainstream was inevitable with major releases and achievements pushing the conversation forward.

Which genres were most dominant in United States from 2017? Things aren't always as they appear to be. This fact of life is evident in the recent reveal by British music streaming service Mixcloud display of "most searched for" music genres in the US during 2017. The genres are broken down by individual state in a music map. More than ten different genres are mentioned. 

The music community in Georgia should be excited about the House Bill 155 also known as the Georgia Music Investment Act but who really wins? Designed to retain, create and grow thousands of music jobs in Georgia is wonderful but who actually benefits from this bill set to go into action Monday, January 1st 2018?
