It isn’t easy promoting your own music (mobile or otherwise), but BlueJay is here to help

There was a time that it was a lot easier to get your music out. But these days it’s only fair to say that it’s hard. There’s a lot of different ways to promote yourself, but, like so many musicians I am always on the look out for a new method to get my sounds out. Then along comes BlueJay. BlueJay is an excellent way to create your own radio station right from your smartphone.

BlueJay will let you create a playlist on your iPhone or Android phone and then broadcast it to anyone else who’s running BlueJay. It’s a real tool and it’ll run on WiFi or 4G / 3G too. It’s worth checking out and getting your existing fans on there. Using BlueJay is about as simple as it can get. If you’re an artist you’ll need to contact BlueJay to get around the playlist restrictions. Once that’s done you’ll be good to go and create a session of your own music for broadcast.

Remember that BlueJay is radio, like real radio, so it’s real time. Your session plays out in real time and once it’s done it’s over. Go download the app and check for some PalmSounds broadcasts this week.

I’ll leave you with the app’s description:

Host your own live public radio shows directly from your phone and start building and interacting with your followers. Keep things smaller and share your favourite playlists in real-time while chatting with your friends. Or follow your favourite curators, artists, and friends to discover new music, hear forgotten gems, and listen to the songs they love with them.

BlueJay lets anyone create and host sessions, where you can live stream a playlist of your favourite songs directly from your phone to your followers or friends using your music files. As the host, you can modify, add to, or end your playlist at any time, as well as control whether your sessions are public or private. Every session also has group chat, where you and your listeners can interact in real-time.

Install our free app now and join the growing BlueJay Music community.

“Your Name Here”, good music, from Frozen Lonesome

Earlier on I posted about the new Apptronica VIP club deal, which you should definitely check out in my opinion, but I also want to mention an album that I listened to only yesterday and really enjoyed. It’s the latest from Frozen Lonesome, and it is really worth a listen in my view.

Your Name Here” is the latest in a long line of excellent output from Frozen Lonesome, and it’s an album that I could happily have on any time of the day and in any situation. I’m very happy to recommend it.

 

If you want to support mobile musicians then you need to do this!

I’ve been meaning to both do this, and tell you about it. I’ve been a fan of Apptronica for a while now but this deal is too good to miss out on. For just $3 (yes, that is correct) a month you can get a huge amount, including:

  • All new Apptronica releases
  • Access to VIP-only releases and merchandise
  • A discount on non-exclusive merch
  • Interact directly with Apptronica via a special VIP section

Not bad at all really I’d say, and if that wasn’t enough you’ll also get their entire back catalog of almost 200 albums as soon as you sign up.

How much better can it get? All that for just $3 a month! That’s outrageous isn’t it!

So go grab the best bargain you can right now! Click here, get deal, smile a lot.

 

Congratulations to AppTronica, now on BeatPort

I’ve been a fan of AppTronica since it first started. It’s what the mobile music community needs, a mobile focussed label, so I was really pleased to see that they’re now on BeatPort. That’s excellent news.

If you haven’t seen them, check out their page on BeatPort here.

ICYMI: Some new music from me using only Auxy

I posted about this little collection using Auxy only over the weekend, but in case you missed that here it is again. Enjoy!

Some new music from me using only Auxy

I made this little collection using Auxy only, which was interesting as you have to work within some quite tight limitations.

Music: VL-Tronic by In the Shiny Box

I can’t really help myself from posting an EP that contains a VL-1, especially as I made the VL-Tonifier bot. But this is a really nice set of tracks.

Enjoy!
