Hi there, I have a few questions around releasing music under multiple artists and labels through iMusician as well as when using Beatport.
On AMPLIFY+ can I release music under more than one artist profile for $100 per year (annual plan)?
Can I also choose which label to be listed for each release? E.g. one is JC Records, the next one may be ‘ABC Records’?
If I create my custom label as ‘123 Records’ on Beatport, I assume I can list that on my releases through Spotify, etc. too.
I searched on Beatport for my name (James Curtis) and only found an artist listed called Curtis James. Can I assume I’ll probably be okay getting a page listed simply as James Curtis?
Lastly, once the custom label is created on Beatport my main artist there will be myself. Let’s say for example I also have an alias as a Dubstep producer. Can I upload new songs through both artists to my custom label on Beatport as well as spotify, apple music?
Hi Carlos, thanks for taking the time to answer these, I appreciate it!
I think I worded my last question a bit poorly. What I mean is this:
e.g. I create ‘ABC Records’ as my custom label on Beatport.
I release a house track as a single on Beatport under my artist name James Curtis.
– Can I release a separate track later on to ABC Records under a different artist name (e.g. a disco track by ‘Disco Dave’)? I assume the other artist needs to have a Beatport profile firstly.
–I guess this is basically asking if I want to release singles by artists who agree to release through my custom label on Beatport can I do that?
–Following on from that, let’s say ‘Disco Dave’ has his own Spotify page and releases music on there. Can he release that same Beatport track on to his own Spotify page himself?
I’m sure it’ll be even clearer when I sign up and start using your services but I just want to have some understanding before I do and how it works for uploading with multiple artists.
Thanks Carlos, that all sounds good to me!
I’m doing some final due dilligence, and am going back and forth between the artist name I want to use.
I would like to use ‘DJ Jay Cee’ as my artist name for electronic releases, on Beatport. I saw DJ JC was already taken and there isn’t currently a DJ Jay Cee on Beatport. However, I did see that there is already a ‘DJ Jaycee’ and ‘Jay Cee’.
Do you forsee potential problems with me trying to claim DJ Jay Cee as an artist name / page on Beatport? May they ask me to include my country code after the name, e.g. DJ Jay Cee CA
“DJ Jay Cee” and “DJ Jaycee” are very similar, which might cause issues when assigning your music to the correct profile. To avoid any potential issues, I would recommend choosing an original name that isn’t already taken by another artist/looks almost identical to one that already exists.
