Contributor Insights: The W...
We’re not a fashion mag, but we do have some hot takes. Dive into the second overview of our contributor community.You don’t need us to tell you how, um, interesting March and April turned out to be. What we can tell you, though, is that our community saw quite a bit of progress and continues to be overwhelmingly positive. Let’s take a closer look.OverviewIf creating order and mapping the music world were among your New Year’s resolutions, you aren’t alone. Since the beginning of the year, more than 2500 new contributors have joined our ranks. Good to have you, guys!Looking at the countries you contribute to the most, the United States is the most covered so far, followed by a couple of European countries, Canada, and Latin and South America. The map below shows the 20 countries with the most contributions and can give you new ideas on where in the world to explore next, add new findings, and earn some sweet points.Contributor SpotlightDid you notice that some contributors like to communicate with each other by changing their nicknames? We think that’s pretty creative. Especially since these “renamers” are a couple in real life. Talk about #couplegoals, huh?A special shout-out goes to Be Yourself, a newcomer from Venezuela who joined our community mid-March and has already made her way to the very top. She finished second in April with 255453 points. Good going!This round’s top contributors with the Godlike Badge, OneOffFan Inc. and Andresqui👽, come from different sides of the world. Their editing specialty seems to be Events, but making Artist profiles shine is not that far behind. Check out their stats below.What’s New & in the PipelineYou guys seem to like the new Task feature in your overview section and are showering the selected profiles with extra attention. Thank you! The feature will be evolving regularly and you’ll be the first to know about any new perks.In the meantime, start moving those champagne bottles towards the fridge, as the freshly revamped and updated Contribution landing page is coming up soon, so celebrations will be in order.Tips & TricksIn case you missed our last newsletter (be sure to sign up below if you’re not receiving it yet!), here’s this month’s hottest tip: social presence is crucial, so be sure to consider this when you’re adding or editing links:1/ Active profile.All links must be active and must display content. Social platforms must show activity in the last 3 years. Example: The artist is currently performing/making/posting music.2/ Accurate data.Make sure that the links you’re adding belong to the artist or venue. Example: In case of bands, only add band links, not band members’ links.Who’s Who at Viberate?This time around, say hi to our “resident music geek”, genre scientist Nik, who’s been honing our genre and subgenre system and has been overseeing the accuracy of your edits since the very beginning.Even though he’s an audio engineer and a hobby DJ (btw, his biggest fan at one time was an 80-year-old gentleman who came to his every afternoon nu-jazz set), Nik believes he’s learnt the most about genres and music through everyday experience. “When I work on our database, I’m always listening to the artists I’m adding or editing. If I stumble upon an artist or track I really like, or a sound I’ve never heard before, I then spend literal days in my off-time digging through entire discographies.”“I like fusion and experiments in music, especially tracks that are hard to define genre-wise. Lately, I jam to Moses Sumney’s ‘Cut Me’.”In his words, invention in music is always exciting, but baffling at certain points. “The most interesting new genre for me is Brazilian ‘Funk Carioca’. Every part of the track sounds offbeat, but like magic, it works when put together. And the most bizarre new subgenre I’ve come across is ‘Post-Teen Pop’. So… it’s just ‘adult pop’? I don’t think every small difference should merit the creation of a new (sub)genre. But that’s just me.”And just like that, our overview is done & dusted! Make sure you keep an eye on your inbox for our newsletter, and make “extra sure” to continue being awesome.https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |Contributor Insights: The Who’s Who of Spring 2020 was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

New Milestones, New Service...
While the worldwide lockdown continues, our online lives are as busy as ever. In April, we launched a service that helps musicians track their online performance, and even calculated some stats about ourselves.But that’s not all that happened in the past month. Here’s the longer list:Viberate among the best European startupsWe were proud and delighted to see our name on Seedtable’s recent list of “European tech startups to watch in 2020”. Being in the company of other renowned names, such as SoundCloud, N26 and of course Eligma, is always a good sign we’re doing something right.121 Best European Startups to Watch in 2020 | SeedtableFastStats — music industry stats monitoring made simpleTo help artists stay on top of their online presence (which is now as important as ever), we’ve created FastStats. Like the name suggests, it’s a service designed for easy cross-channel monitoring of fan and follower growth, which brings Viberate data together in an easy-to-use dashboard.With FastStats, we hope to help artists and their teams better manage their time and efforts and get back to securing gigs as soon as possible. Of course, the service is free and can be used on mobile or desktop.Read more about it in Miha’s recent blog:Introducing FastStats, Easy Social & Streaming Monitoring for MusiciansOver 100 editorial articles publishedAnother important milestone in terms of content is publishing 100 articles on our platform. Over the course of the past few months, our editorial team was tireless at researching, interviewing and creating, all to bring interesting, in-depth insights and valuable first-hand advice to our users.Here’s the celebrated 100th article: an interview with IDMA-nominated Trance artist Alessandra Roncone, in which she discusses her career and also gives some pointers to up-and-coming DJs and producers.Alessandra Roncone: Don't Expect Only the Optimal OutcomeOur own isolation statsLast but not least, we decided to have some fun while crunching numbers and updating the platform, so we did an internal survey of our home office habits and decisions during distancing.Here’s a taste of the stats.What came out was a fun and quirky dive into our everyday life, which covered almost everything from our style choices to binging on “Tiger King”. Plus, we also put together a go-to playlist.

Viberate in Numbers: How Ar...
The time must come for every music data company to turn its analytical eye on itself. We present: our isolation stats.It’s now week 7 of our home office life, and in between crunching numbers, Zoom marathons and deadline sprints, we decided to sniff out (OK, not literally) some interesting stats about ourselves as well. As always, our marketing team went for the dirty details. Are we eating too much? When was the last time anyone’s worn jeans? And of course — what are we jamming to?Here’s what we found out:👙 RIP Beach BodiesWe’re bound to get heavier, as we’re eating way more.On the other hand, a good percent of us have discovered a passion for jogging, working out, and generally putting tracksuits to their intended purpose, so statistically, the office chairs need not fear our return.🎸 Rocking AroundSpeaking of heavy stuff: when it comes to music, our developers and data/support team seem to currently enjoy heavier riffs, especially Iron Maiden. The majority of jokers can be found in the product department, and by “jokers” we mean people who swear they can’t get enough of “Never Gonna Give You Up” or “10 Hours of Celestial White Noise”. They probably get along great with whomever it is in the marketing department who jams to “Tibetan flute music”, though.The majority of us have watched at least one music livestream or an artist’s online performance. If there’s a set worthy of an extra shoutout, it’s UMEK’s ReConnect set we’ve already written about.🧘 Netflix & ChillAlong with the Zoom marathons, we love series marathons as well. Still, when it comes to “Tiger King”, only half of us have seen it.Did the panic-buying of toilet paper and any of the bonkers conspiracy theories affect us? Doesn’t look like it, as we’re still reportedly very chill…at least when we’re not trolling our Facebook friends.🧨 Last but Not Least: Our Playlist!You didn’t think we were just going to casually mention our (weird) jams without giving you a taste, did you? When we surveyed our music tastes, several team members volunteered their go-to isolation songs, so behold: our weird and wonderful Viberate Isolation Tracks Playlist.Will it bring extra cheer to your day? We hope so. Like we like to say: “Issa vibe!”https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |Viberate in Numbers: How Are We Handling the Distancing? was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Add, Cred and Edit: How We ...
Coming up with new ideas all the time is pretty much one of the commandments of modern business. But is that really all that it takes to succeed? Our project is proving otherwise.Sure, some motivation is always welcomed, and agility can help you get ahead, but when it comes down to it, constant pressure to create is usually just that: pressure.You’ve probably experienced a form of it during this lockdown period, too: on social media, for example, where a barrage of posts is telling you to take action. Pick up a new hobby, impress with today’s challenge, get out of your comfort zone… as though the current circumstances don’t already call for being more comfortable and OK with whatever you’re doing.Pressure doesn’t always create diamonds, and that insight inspired our improved contribution features.The challengeOnce you register on Viberate, you’re prompted to start adding artists, venues, events and festivals around you, or the up-and-coming artists you like. Sure, no biggie. But what happens after you’ve added every new entity you can think of?https://medium.com/media/c8aa587c6bba923dc42daf2c0530bcc4/hrefWhen we discussed upgrading and improving the contribution experience with our community, we found that some contributors simply get stuck after a while. Like many creative thinkers will tell you, encouraging people to re-examine and explore existing ideas will lead to generating new ones more easily. In gaming terms, sometimes it’s having “quests” that’s the best part.The hackWith help from our support team, we introduced Tasks. Now, each contributor can open their “My Contribution” section and receive sets of 3 profiles that need editing and updating. Finding and fixing outdated links is our first priority, as the Artist profiles are all about up-to-date and verified content. And since there’s well over 1.5 million profiles on the platform, you can imagine that the “supply” doesn’t run out quickly.Tasks can be found in each contributor’s “My Contribution” section.Soon, these task suggestions will also be modified to fit a contributor’s music taste even better, which we hope will also help their never-ending music discovery.The benefitsHaving a strong community that tirelessly pieces together the worldwide music puzzle (over 6,500 edits in March alone!) is a rare privilege. Besides rewarding their valuable time and effort with badges and goodies, it’s these seemingly simple features that truly work wonders for engagement and satisfaction. After all, being skilled in editing also brings you points and extra “cred”, so focusing your energy into perfecting existing stuff is just as important and valuable as chasing new things all the time.Kind of how it works with everything in life, isn’t it?https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |Add, Cred and Edit: How We Improved Engagement with Focused Tasks was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

And the IDMA goes to…
And the IDMA Goes to…That should be the beginning of an exciting evening, in the pool area of Faena District’s Generator hotel during this year’s Winter Music Conference in Miami. Shorts, flip-flops, and the first mojito of many that night. The standard Miami vibe we in the music industry look forward to throughout the year.But then someone decided it would be a great idea to eat some bat sashimi, so instead of getting a head start on sunburns, we’re now stuck at home, watching Tiger King (which, by the way, is the best thing that has happened during the quarantine, if not this whole crappy year).https://medium.com/media/2bf266b4c987f918d619e44a0cb2bc7f/hrefPierced gay redneck tiger tamers aside, the winners of the International Dance Music Awards were announced recently, and we congratulate them.Here’s how we picked the nominees.The IDMA committee sent over the artist-based categories (genre- and gender-specific), and the first thing to do was to filter and group the artists that belonged in each of them. That narrowed the selection down to a little over 100 thousand artists, but that was the easy part. The hard part was ranking them according to their online popularity.Step one: ranking.Simply counting likes and followers wouldn’t yield good results, so we first needed to reduce various key performance indicators (KPIs), such as Twitter and Instagram followers, Facebook likes, and YouTube subscribers, to a single, synthetic KPI. Picture stuffing apples, oranges, strawberries, melons, and broccoli into one basket, and somehow turning them all into carrots.https://medium.com/media/26bed38936759959c498640f4a1afbf1/hrefStep two: examining fans, gigs, and networks.To pick the five nominees in each category, we then looked into how big their fanbase on all those channels was in the beginning of 2019, and how it grew month-by-month. This gave us a good foundation for determining an artist’s popularity, based on what they had accrued through the years and on how dynamic their growth had been throughout 2019.But wait, the statistical acrobatics don’t end there! To spice it all up, we added data from events, and for the final touch, threw in a pinch of peer network analysis. Here, we looked at the profiles of each artist’s followers and singled out the musicians. The stronger the profile of your followers (meaning the more famous your follower artist is), the bigger the chances of getting nominated.Step three: picking the 5 best acts in 16 categories.The final result was a highly relevant list of crème-de-la-crème Electronic music artists. We threw the nominees to the voters, much like Carole Baskin threw her husband to the tigers, and you can check the winners here.For all the Electronic trends and insights we picked up in the process (and designed smashingly, may I add), be sure to check out this IQ Mag article.2019 Under the Microscope: Who was on top in electronic music? | IQ MagazineAnd for that extra kick of motivation, check out what advice IDMA nominees have on tackling the Covid-19 crisis.Tackle Covid-19 Like an IDMA Nomineehttps://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |And the IDMA goes to… was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Keeping Our Distance — but ...
Keeping Our Distance — but Not From Our GoalsWhat a year March was, huh? It’s times like these that really put your ability to think on your feet to the test. Luckily for us, we’re a tech startup, so we know how to shuffle fast: we set up home offices, pushed forward, and even put together a festival monitoring service, practically overnight.Online fun timeMaintaining the social distance didn’t stop us from having fun in our team meetings. Here’s a glimpse into our virtual sessions — and thereby our minds. While some of us transformed our workstations into space stations, others went to paradise beaches, or simply went gaga. The gamers got ready for their evening sessions, and a select few kept in mind their traditional weekly after-work meetup at the nearby gas station. Now that’s team spirit!You know, business as usual.Fans ReConnect with UMEKMeanwhile, our co-founder DJ UMEK was also hard at work. Joining the music industry’s initiatives to move live gigs online during the pandemic, he dropped two Techno sets from his home studio, one via Kurzschluss Clubbing’s “Party from Home” stream, and one via Beatport’s “ReConnect” Global Livestream. While we lol’d at the viewers’ comments both times (“Hey, this is ideal for us older ravers — we can party AND have someone watch over the kids.” or “Guys, keep hitting your light switch for that strobe effect!”), we also couldn’t help but admire the poster on his wall. When the eyes of the global community are on you, use the ad space wisely!Check out UMEK’s ReConnect set HERE.Staying on top of COVID-19 like only we canAs Vasja explained in this Blockchain Alliance Europe article, Viberate can’t really create a cure for the coronavirus — but we can create a service that utilizes data to everyone’s advantage. As soon as large music festivals like Ultra and Coachella announced their cancellations, we hacked together Sick Festivals to assist festival-goers with their plans, and to alert both the public and the media about the enormous revenue loss the industry is bound to suffer.Spreading the word, not the virus.For more on the subject, check out Matej’s recent blog post.Live Music Industry Hit Hard by Coronavirus: Our New Service Monitors the ImpactSick Festivals soon gained traction, and was also mentioned in this in-depth Forbes article about the fallout musicians are facing right now.The Heartbreaking Cost For Musicians As COVID-19 Stops The MusicWhat else is new?The “canceled/postponed” filters and tags you see on the Sick Festivals site have, of course, also been added to our Viberate platform, which also saw a couple of tweaks. Most notably, we improved the contributor section and updated the “Hot Right Now” section with a new design for Spotify tracks.Although our Zoom shenanigans may suggest otherwise, we’re as hard at work as ever. It’s impossible for anyone to accurately predict what the following months will bring, but we promise we’ll do everything in our power to help bring the situation back to normal as fast as possible. New specialized products and services are already in the works, and we’ll roll them out as soon as all this is over.Stay safe and keep your spirits up. 2020 won’t get the best of us if we all give our best.https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |Keeping Our Distance — but Not From Our Goals was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Live Music Industry Hit Har...
Music festivals are increasingly among those affected by Covid-19. To help everyone stay on top of things, we’ve created Sickfestivals.com, where anyone can easily track which festivals have been canceled, which ones postponed, and what that means for the industry.It started as a local outbreak, but was soon felt as global unease. The music industry wasn’t exempt in dealing with the aftermath of the pandemic prevention measures. If you were wondering just how fast the situation changed, simply ask our colleague DJ UMEK, who experienced the switch in a matter of hours: “I played on the Resistance stage at Ultra in Melbourne and Sydney, nothing seemed out of the ordinary. When I landed back home and turned my phone back on, most of my upcoming gigs had already disappeared from my calendar. That was when I realized how serious this outbreak had become.”Because things got so serious so fast, we quickly put together Sickfestivals.com. As it’s up to all of us to do whatever we can to manage the damage, we’ve created a comprehensive list of festivals that have been officially canceled or postponed. Sourced from around 5000 festivals in our Viberate database, the list is reliably updated daily with those affected, and will be upgraded further with other relevant stats.If your festival is not on the list, check out Viberate.com. It’s either unaffected, or no changes have been announced yet.With our current version, visitors can sort the festivals alphabetically, according to their online popularity, or according to the public reaction to the regretful news, expressed by the “Saddy McSadface” emoji. We’re not making light of the situation — we hope these public “tears of support” will show the hard-working organizers that the world appreciates their concerns.Why did we do it?All these cancellations and rearranged dates put unimaginable economic and psychological strain on not only the performing artists, event organizers, and the teams involved, but also on anyone with flights, hotels, and festival tickets already booked and paid for months in advance. Sure, we’re mostly home-bound these days, but that doesn’t mean we should waste hours searching for the latest info in order to get our bookings refunded in time.Moreover, with a comprehensive list, it’ll be easier to monitor just how huge the impact on the industry will be.What do the cancellations mean for the industry?The anticipated fallout goes far beyond worrying whether we’ll be allowed to party at the seaside this summer or not. As the production costs of a mega-sized festival easily exceed $100M, we’re talking billions of dollars out the window.We’ll keep monitoring the stats closely on our website.Here’s what we know so far:- Over 300 music festivals have already been affected (for updated numbers, check Sickfestivals), 48 of them in the US alone.- At least 1.3M people will be unable to attend their favorite festival. We’re talking visitors to the 20 most popular music festivals on our platform, so we expect the final number to be much, much higher.- At least $5.5B in total revenue is expected be lost by all festival stakeholders. By that we mean the aggregated economic effect on festival organizers, vendors, and the teams involved. This calculation was made at the time of writing, so it is expected to increase as things develop.The situation seems dire, to say the least. The good news is: the music industry is coping and adapting as always. Thanks to their always-hectic schedules, festival professionals are quick to think on their feet and react, and artists who’ve lost their upcoming gigs are creatively turning to online services to keep in touch with their fans, which now seems more valuable than ever.To try and soften the impact of this situation, Viberate is already implementing new solutions for industry professionals out there, and we’ll update you on them as soon as possible. Together, we can come out stronger.Stay tuned, but most of all — stay safe and stay home.https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |Live Music Industry Hit Hard by Coronavirus: Our New Service Monitors the Impact was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

From winning the coveted Godlike Contributor Badge and promotions, to strengthening the music industry during times of global challenges — now is our time to shine.As the music industry faces unprecedented challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic, our mission of helping artists, venues, events and festivals thrive is more important than ever. This ongoing music revolution would not be possible without you, our global community of hero contributors.https://medium.com/media/09e68e2afeae42baf7318c0062e945f2/hrefThis is the first in a series of columns in which we’ll keep you up to date with contributor achievements, present interesting developments, and provide tips on becoming an even more successful contributor. Let’s go, shall we?OverviewAs the number of contributors grows, so does the network.

See your most popular entries below.You guys Rock!Contributor SpotlightIn September 2019, we implemented a system with four different types of badges that let anyone see who the superstar contributors are. This system is fair and allows every “newbie” to climb all the way up to the holy grail of badges, the Godlike Contributor Badge. When you get it, it means that you’re pretty much the best in (music) class.Two contributors, 2☼2☼ (edit: now known as (◔ ͜ʖ◔)👍) and Matjaž f, have gone all in and won the badge already. So far, and at the time of writing this column, they’ve earned more than 31,000 and 61,000 points respectively in March alone, with our sun-loving user adding and editing artists, while Matjaž’s specialty are events. Check out their favorite genres and some other facts below. Thank you, guys, you’re absolutely crushing it!All in a day’s work 💪Turn badge collection into pro status.The higher the points, the better the badges, and the better the chance for you to become one of our pro contributors and turn your hobby into a full-time job. For tips and tricks, follow in the footsteps of Camilo Bernheim, one of our 50 professionals.https://www.viberate.com/article/five-reasons-why-music-contributors-are-the-heroes-behind-the-scenesAlso, have you read about Alan from Slovenia, who can tell the genre of a band just by looking at the logo? Alan is the star of our new column called “Spotted”, where we introduce our most dedicated contributors and highlight their work, which never goes unnoticed.Spotted: A Bit of Punk, Some Metalcore, and Good Old RockWhat’s New and in the Pipeline?We’ve just introduced an upgraded version of our contributors charts, which is now the same as the Artist List view page. This means that now, every single contributor is listed, not just the top 10.We’ve also modified the rewards system for our top contributors. Just like before, the top 20 contributors are rewarded, but the potential rewards for the top 3 places have increased in value, as you can see in the detailed table below.Coming up soon — a new feature in your profile’s overview section. With it, you’ll be prompted to undertake tasks, in other words, you’ll see which IDs need editing. We’ll focus on artists and venues first, meaning you’ll have the chance to get new entities to edit simply by clicking a button.Tips & TricksWhile we want to make sure that different parts of the globe get a fair share of our attention, there will always be countries and cities that need some extra love.In this first round, please apply your best editing skills to add new venues from Sacramento, California, Anaheim, California, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.Who’s Who at Viberate?Last but not least, we’re sure you’d like to know more about who takes care of you on our end. First up to say “hi” is Jožica, our invaluable core team member and contributor point of contact.‘’I never treat anyone as a number, but rather as an interesting individual,’’ Jožica says.“Joži” has been with us for over two years now, and she gets to correspond with many contributors, especially the ones who make it to the top 20. ‘’Thanks to contributors, I’ve expanded my music taste, as they always suggest new artists from different genres.

Eventim Makes It Cheaper fo...
Unless you specialize in organizing festivals exclusively for the Amish, you’ve probably thought about having your own mobile app. Let’s leave the posters and brochures to the boomers and talk real business.Our platform currently features around 5,000 festivals of all shapes and sizes, all neatly marked on the world map and presented with very comprehensive profiles. Visitors can find everything that matters on the profiles: venue information, ticket links, amenities, nearby accommodation, highlights, and, most importantly, the lineup.There’s lots of gems under the hood.All the info in one place: the festivalgoer’s pocket.All that information is easily pushed into a mobile app. If you have a festival, all you have to do is claim or create your profile on Viberate (your festival’s profile is most likely already there), fill out any missing information, and start talking app with us. Normally, an app for iOS and Android made from scratch would cost anywhere from €30k upwards. Not with us. We charge an annual subscription at a fraction of that cost, and the content you need is basically already all there. But it gets better!Our new partnership is good news for the entire Adriatic region.https://medium.com/media/2faa734a0253b66296489539157c2a33/hrefWe’ve just partnered up with Eventim in the Adriatic region, and together, we bring festival-owners even closer to a mobile app: Eventim will cover 50% of the subscription cost for the first year for festivals that will sell tickets through their system. Cool, right?To check out other app highlights, head to my previous blog post:Every Music Festival Needs an App — and Here’s WhyInterested already?

New Partnerships and Other ...
Despite February being the shortest month, we managed to squeeze in more than enough developments to make this monthly report as interesting as possible. Here’s what we’ve been itching to tell you.Good news for regional festival ownersWe’re proud to announce our partnership with Eventim, the leading ticket provider in the Adriatic region. Together, we are making exciting Festival Apps deals (and other opportunities) for festival owners, aiming to make the scene more digitalized, and the live music experiences even better. We’ll reveal all the juicy details soon.We nominated the hottest Electronic acts of 2019For the second year in a row, the International Dance Music Awards (IDMA) trusted us to select the nominees for the artist-based categories. We picked the top 5 artists in each category, based on their online popularity and growth in the past year. We’re not talking basic likes and follower numbers, but KPIs such as fanbase growth, peer support, and gigs performed. The winners, selected by public vote, will be announced at the Winter Music Conference, where our Vasja will also hold a panel with prominent industry names.Read more about it in his latest blog post:See You in MiamiTune into podcastsNot only did we gain quite a bit of traction in the media world with the way we crunched the numbers for IDMA, we also attracted the attention of a couple of awesome podcasts. Vasja, our nr. 1 speaker, explains what Viberate does today, how we keep artists’ profiles up-to-date, and reveals plans to make our platform the world’s biggest marketplace for underrepresented artists to be discovered by promoters.180 - The IMDb of the Music Industry - with Vasja Veber of ViberateHundreds of new claims to fameThroughout February, we were happy to see the number of newly claimed profiles climb into the hundreds, among them legendary names such as Techno king Carl Cox, Drum and Bass stalwarts Black Sun Empire, metal heavyweights The Black Dahlia Murder, and funk-metal iconoclasts Living Colour.As one of our objectives is helping artists grow and connect, we asked some of these freshly joined artists about career advice they’d like to share. Our editorial team thus covered Sound & Shape’s rock ’n’ roll life on the road, Mike Williams’ thoughts on social media, KOAN Sound’s views on creativity, and more.Exclusive Interview: "The New Decapitated Will Be a Tribute to the Old Gods"Mike Williams: "Send Your Tracks to the Artists, not Labels"Djibril Cissé: From Football Star to Rising DJKOAN Sound: To Create a Masterpiece, Switch Reason OffMuch more lies in store for us this month and the rest of the year, so be sure to stay tuned, while we continue to rock ’n’ roll!https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/href| Viberate.com |Instagram| Facebook | Twitter | LinkedIn | Reddit |New Partnerships and Other Good News was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

See You in Miami
When we started Viberate, we said we’ll have our own award show someday. Now we have one. Well, almost.Here’s our co-founder UMEK with the IDMA for Best Techno Artist he snatched a couple of years ago.For the second year in a row, we were in charge of selecting the nominees for the artist-based categories at the International Dance Music Awards. We picked the top 5 artists in each category, based on their online popularity and growth in the past year. We went well beyond just counting likes and followers, because anyone can buy those.The nominees were selected with the help of five main KPIs:· Fanbase (actually counting likes and followers)· Fan growth· Engagement (a real audience is an engaged audience)· Network (peer support)· Events (every gig counts)The result is a highly relevant list of the hottest artists of 2019. However, the winners will be decided by a public vote. You can cast yours here. We have a pretty good idea of who actually gained the most in the past year, and it will be interesting to see if we’ll get the same result by voting.To top it off, we’ll be hosting a panel at Winter Music Conference on March 18th (mainstage, baby!), where I’ll be moderating a discussion on using data to improve the chances of a breakthrough in the music industry. The panel will feature Emily Blake from Rolling Stone, Arabian Prince (N.W.A.), Andre Glanz from Napster, and Deniz Koyu (KO:YU).Save the date 📅If you’re there and want to connect, drop us a line and we’ll schedule a meeting. There may or may not be cocktails on those meetings, it’s Miami after all.https://medium.com/media/7c1d0381dcc5a9ce08824baf3417e55c/hrefSee You in Miami was originally published in Viberate blog on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.
