I now have two albums on Spotify!

I'm a big believer in decentralization and when I saw Choon I was super excited. Choon was a centralized/decentralized mix that promised to pay artists in NOTES (their own currency) every time their music was streamed! At the time I was pretty adamant that I wanted to keep as much of my content off centralized social media and streaming platforms so I could support some hopefully disruptive technology.

Well Choon failed. Probably at no fault of their own, the long bear market was tough on many start ups and in the end they couldn't keep going.

Since then I haven't had my music streaming anywhere other then @jukeblox (MSP-Waves Broadcast channel in the PAL server) which made it difficult to link or share with people.

I finally decided to do the thing and get on Spotify.

To do this I used a service called distrokid. You pay around 20$ a year and you can add your music to spotify and a whole host of other music streaming services, yay!

I have two albums currently, Psychic Transmissions:

and Pneuma:

I started with my oldest first and am adding progressively newer albums.

I have about two more to go and a few single that don't really fit in with anything else.

Can't wait to check it out. I'm gett Spotify next month again and will check it out when I have.
I've heard so e of your work onmsp before and its brilliant. 😀

Awesome!!!! Congrats!🎉

to be honest, I do not have spotify because I see no reason if I can find most of the stuff on youtube, soundcloud and bandcamp, but I am curious about payment & withdraw system over there. Is it similar to youtube model, where you need to keep certain level of old & new subscribers, as well as views and comments, or it is more similar to choon, where you're paid for every listener. or maybe something completely different. Could you please share some details or link to the place where I could get some more info?

btw. obviously I will listen to your tracks soon :)

AFAIK you're paid per stream but it's a very tiny amount, I'm not putting my music there to make money, I just want to be able to share it, it also pushes to about 40 services like itunes, apple music, youtube etc

I like spotify on mobile because you can listen in the background unlike youtube :)

listening in the background is indeed a huge issue on youtube.

thanks for your reply!

I already subscribed to your spotify . Keep it up. Im looking forward to your new releases.


Creating art is one of the most beautiful activities.
