It's that time again. The latest issue of FM hits the streets today and 'what an issue it is'!
This month we grasp the thorny issue of releasing your own tracks in a feature that might literally change your life.
Yes, we´ve been banging on about the freedom that the Internet allows music makers and the possibilities afforded by self release for years now. But it´s only in recent times that all the tools you need have appeared. With legal single sales at an all-time high (and a vibrant scene sharing and passing on new artists) placing your tune on the ´net is no longer the random stone throw into a rocky canyon it used to be, but more akin to placing your product on a shelf in a store than ever before.
If you´ve got finished tracks that you think would bring the house down, then what are you waiting for? Our Start Your Own Digital Label feature contains all you need to start business and make it big. And thanks to a deal with those clever ReBeat people we've got three FREE iTunes uploades for every reader. Yes, put your three best tracks on the 'Tunes (and many more online sites) today!
Elsewhere this month we´ve three brilliant artist features (THREE!) all packed with tips and insight. Don´t miss Phoenix and their producer Philippe Zdar, Zero 7 and Bent.
And to whet your appetite for brilliance here's our monthly trailer of our discy goodness. Don't miss our exclusive In The Studio with Philippe Zdar - only in issue 221 of Future Music. On sale now!
