Hey folks … I’ve been praising and supporting a company called Spinitron for a few years now, and have been instrumental in their success among Colorado public radio stations seeking playlist generator options. A few months ago I received notice they were going to launch a new service called DJ Corps. Here’s the details from their website.
DJ Corps is an online Disc Jockey membership club bringing DJs from all genres together to provide cost-effective marketing services for recording artists.
According to a Nov 2011 study by NARM and NPD Group, FM/AM radio prevails as the most important place for music discovery, confirming that DJs remain our culture’s most influential music taste-makers.
DJ Corps’ method is radical and simple: connect recording artists directly with DJs online to their mutual benefit. Artists submit their songs to DJ Corps for targeted exposure to member DJs who provide their honest and timely feedback and consider it for airplay. DJs are paid for each review they provide.
DJ Corps is committed to complete transparency in the relationship between artists and DJs. Its system has no intermediaries in media distribution, opinion feedback or performance tracking. Furthermore, since DJ Corps members receive the same compensation for each review they provide regardless if they like the music or not, the possibility of pay-for-play cannot arise.
The work of a DJ has always involved listening to and reviewing new music and maintaining their expertise. DJ Corps rewards DJs for this effort while reducing artists’ promotional costs. It gives artists accurate insight into who has listened to their song, what they thought of it and who intends to perform it publicly.
In addition, DJ Corps provides a social forum where member DJs can exchange information and their opinions with each other.
