What if you received a weekly electronic music business- and career coaching straight to your ears, completely for free? Well, that’s what I’m about to launch soon. A podcast for electronic music producers that helps you build and grow your career as an artist.

In the last six months, I’ve been busy doing research. I’ve asked upcoming artists as well as established clients of mine to share some of their biggest struggles with me. I’m now close to the launch of my new electronic music producer podcast called “Pick Yourself”. In this article, I’m going to share some first details with you.

Why have I created a podcast for electronic music artists?

There are a million half-hearted resources out there which are trying to sell you short-sighted tactics. It’s usually advice from non-professionals who are quick to jump on the bandwagon of what the rest of the pack is preaching.

No more short-sighted tactics!

When I first had the idea of starting a podcast for electronic music producers, I was asking myself how I could truly help talented, emerging artists. I began asking around to find out what my peers, clients, and my students at dBs Berlin are most struggling with.

Here are some of the answers I’ve received:

“I’m constantly putting out new releases, but it seems like I’m not gaining traction at all.”

“My biggest struggle is to find an audience that actually cares about what I’m doing.”

“I don’t get any gigs in the clubs that would really fit my style. Instead, I’m playing in the same old venues that I used to for the last years.”

“I’m kind of stuck in the loop and can’t tell if my productions are unique or different enough to get picked up by other DJs or blogs.”

“I would love to release on a bigger label but I don’t even get a response to my submissions. Is there even a chance to get to the next level with my music?”

Does this sound familiar to you? Well, you’re not alone…

Many artists (even the bigger ones) have a hard time getting the attention their music deserves. On the other hand, it’s crucial to create music that deserves attention in the first place. My goal is to tackle both sides of the problem and provide actionable advice. This podcast is designed to help you grow your artist profile week by week.

How exactly will this electronic music producer podcast help you?

I’ve been involved in the professional music business for more than ten years now. During this time, I’ve built strong relationships within the global electronic music scene, and I’ve seen many of our peers succeed and fail over and over again. I want to share what I’ve learned over the years and demystify a lot of misconceptions that upcoming artists are dealing with.

Identifying patterns of success and failure

My experience in supporting upcoming artists and labels with professional music production, mixing, and mastering services has given me the opportunity to follow their paths. I’ve been nurturing their careers over an extended period of time. Therefore, I’ve seen many patterns evolve over the last years that seem to dictate, whether artists accomplish their goals or not.

I’m motivated by giving something back to the scene and helping emerging artists build and grow their careers. This podcast is going to be a weekly no-bullshit mentoring, straight to the point.

Actionable advice and meaningful guidance

I believe that a podcast for electronic music artists should contain actionable advice on specific topics. We’ll cover the strategies, mindsets, tactics, and tools that will help you succeed in this crazy business.

You’re going to receive new episodes every week. Moreover, I will try to hook you up with amazing events, tools, and specialists that can help you grow your artist profile. I’m also organizing a Facebook community where you can engage with other artists and support each other.

Guests that really have something to say

I’m going to mix between episodes where I’m talking about a specific topic and other episodes where I’m interviewing guests. From high profile electronic music artists, to label owners, PR-agents, booking agents, show promoters, club owners, etc.

Since I really hate podcasts that invite guests who only brag about their successes, I’m strictly focusing on people that are real, share their biggest failures with you. Imagine they’ll be giving you advice that they would have loved to get ten years ago. I can already announce that Chris Jarman aka Kamikaze Space Programme and Laurie Osbourne aka Appleblim will be among my first guests. Be prepared for some hard truth and to-the-point advice.
