Lemmiwinks Posted May 14, 2012 Share Posted May 14, 2012 So I was just watching a show on new sites that allow fans to directly finance artists' albums. The concept is pretty simple: an artist puts some samples online, the fan scrolls through different samples of different artists and decides which ones he like and gives a small donation (can be as low as 5€) so that the artist can finish their album. If the total amount to make the album is reached, then the artist goes on and makes the album, releases it and in the fan-investor gets a bit of the share. If the total is not reached then the project is abandoned, no new album and donnators get their money back. Now I was thinking, why not use the concept and make a site 100% dedicated to psytrance? IMO this could be HUGE... What do you guys think? in case you're not familiar with the concept, here are some example sites: www.sellaband.com http://www.slicethepie.com/ (here you actually get paid to review new artists before reaching "critical mass" and seek a record deal) http://www.sonicangel.com/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
