what do you guys think of making an outreach cd? We could make a nice sized CD with the music made by people on this site. This way we could give them away when we are passing out fliers and talking to people. Someone from this site could mix the CD and then we could burn cds and bring them when we come.
Much of the reason we made the cd (FSOW) was so that we could provide people at the festival with a good representation of what we are doing. Selling the cd on the store and elsewhere was really to make enough money to make cds to give out at the fest. It is going to be used for many things now because we have to opportunity to distribute the cd more, but that was really the whole reason we made the cd.
You should make cd’s of your music to pass out to people. I would suggest this to everyone. Its one the most basic but direct ways you can get your music out there. I handed out CD’s last year and I still talk to some of the people that I met and gave Cd’s to. There is no better marketing than to hand your cds being given to 80,000+ electronic dance music fans.
