Cant get beatport. (Last album did Not go platnum lol)

Soundclouds a good one. Got a modest following there.

Dont really follow the blog scene. Any recommendations for popular House/electro house blogs?

Put "as played by Deadmau5" on all your artwork. Do it.

email promo's to every DJ you admire that you think would play it - Ya but they usually dont get it.

FB, MS, Twitter, - Done

Get some gigs at WMC. - :( not getting the call for that yet.

Hand out CD's at WMC - definatly for ultra

Suck DeadMau5's dick? - ... no

ok. scratch the last one... - good

Good luck! - Good advice thanks!

A quick question. Are you self releasing these or are you signed by a recognised label?

I only ask becasue if it is the former then you have to work hard, using some of the techniques already mentioend to promo your work. If the latter, then you have to work hard getting THEM to promo the work for you.

Some of the online services such as reverb nation and groudn zero project will market for you for a fee.

The risk is, it always costs you more than you'll ever make back. but thats your choice.

keep going!
