Why Breakmysong.com? It’s simple. The old music business model is fast becoming obsolete with the advent of the digital landscape. And with this change comes a need for artists to evolve as well. This means, artists and DJ’s now have the power to control their own careers. By bringing the power and creativity of them both together, music from all over the world is shared, giving each the authority to promote them selves and shape the music scene today and for years to come.
How did Breakmysong start? The idea behind Breakmysong started when one of the founders, an aspiring artist had a difficult time trying to get his music played in the clubs and on the radio stations. He realized that many artists have the same problem. So, he teamed up with a few talented guys to create a global site that gives artist access to DJ’s worldwide.
Together they visualized a site that would make the distribution of music in the clubs and radio scene more feasible for artists looking to create a buzz for themselves. They understood that the DJ’s where the true stars and should be giving more credit than they were getting, and many artists had great songs that should be played. So in essence, that’s who should be shaping music, not corporation.
“No one can become a star if the DJ’s doesn’t play their song. This goes for major label artist as well. Futhermore, since we’re in a digital landscape, it just makes sense to go straight to the source.” Quote: Troy Jones
