Answer any of the above and you're either a DJ or a Music Writer.

or BOTH... right?

We need the above information to help prove that you have the opportunity to provide either or both a music review / airplay for the music.

What we need more than just the evidence of opportunity and means to accomplish the task.. we also need to know that you are in fact motivated to provide music reviews and/or airplay.

If you do not have a place to put your music reviews already, or you're not currently writing with any music magazines, then....

I'd invite you now to send you music reviews to me. Just post them up at my message boards.

Once I see that you've posted 4-5 music reviews, I'll collect them all and submit them to thru a new email address that I can provide to you from my domain. This will help keep things organised and begin your shiney new accomplishments as a music writer associated with NocturnalMovements, which places music reviews of independent music cds as written by new music writers.

We are always in need of new music writers to help cover the vast amounts of music cds pouring in from every genre of the music industry.

DJ's are strongly encouraged to apply their knowledge and skills to the reviewing of new music... for several reasons:

#1 - good djs know how to transition from one song to the next.

That means that they must know more about the each song that they spin than just the song title and musical description. The dj must really know every aspect of how the song feels at different points... particularly the beginning and endings, intros and outtros.. and that means that such attention to detail, as well as bpm... make a good dj also an excellent music reviewer. Many music writers are current djs.

#2 Writing music reviews also allows a dj to become more well-known for their productivity beyond simply spinning music that a few people may have heard at that time and even fewer will make any effort to inquire about. Writing music reviews provides more validity to the rationale to mail out a music promo in the first place.

Music reviewers are the most likely candidtaes to receive new music for review.. (duh!) Dj's can increase their music promo servicing by writing music reviews for those cds which actually make it into their playlists.

An equally important service that many djs will also provide...

include weblinks to the music websites for new and independent music cds that appear in your playlists.

The primary purpose for providing music at no cost to the recipient is to compel that person to draw attention to the music and to the website associated with that music so that more and more people will find their paths leading back to the music artists who sent to you the music. And, so, on your recommendations, people discover new music... IF you tell them where to find it... Give the people to whom you send your music playlists links for the new music artists and indie labels appearing in your playlists each week/month.

Okay... so that's all for today!
