    I'm just a senior in high school and this is something I mostly do in my spare time, but I have put a lot of work into it for the last 3 or 4 years. I guess I have a few good songs, but what's the best way of going about getting it out there? I've tried places like purevolume and myspace but it's not getting much recognition at all:sadwavey:

    where do you live?

    do you dj? play out "live"? do you go out and support local electronic events? do you drive to see electonic events?

    i guess what i'm asking is, do you have a network built up yet, because it may suck, but it's about who you know, not what.

    Well I've never DJ'ed. As far as I know there are no electronic events. Billings Montana is not a big place for electronic music. For the most part I'm trying to spread out over the internet because there is no hope for local things.

    Try posting on www.tranceaddict.com

    I think there is a music download site where you can upload your own music to buy.

    I bet there are some events somewhere in Montana, if not, it is going to be difficult to get out there.

    Going to events and giving away CDs and meeting people is the best way to go. You need to start networking because on top of making quality music, you need to know people. That's a big part of the music business.

    I have several friends that are EDM producers and DJs and they have gotten their music heard by travelling around the country to events and getting their music heard and meeting people in the business.

    Trance forums, make a myspace music page, submit it to ASOT, or similar if its a different genre, go to local DJ nights, have some demos made out and see if anyone likes your stuff.
