Your new Jamendo artist interface!

 

What can you expect from this new administration panel?

 

- An entirely new upload process 



We know how important the upload process is: it’s the first step towards sharing your music with the Jamendo community. Simply drag and drop your audio files, edit their info while they are processed and regroup them in albums. It’s fast and simple! 


We consider it as being absolutely important that you can provide as much information as possible about your tracks and albums, so that our listeners and licensing clients are able to easily find your music. From now on, you will have to reach a certain percentage of data completion for each track in order to be able to publish it online.

  • Simpler opt-in to Licensing

As some of you might already know: Jamendo PRO is dead, say welcome to Jamendo Licensing!


Joining Jamendo Licensing is a lot more simple: accept the terms in one click, fill in your certification online and sign it electronically. That shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. Say goodbye to the manually signed certificate.

  • New service: "Composition"!

A potential new source of revenue for you: on-demand compositions for synchronization purposes (advertising, film, television, applications, etc.). It’s a much higher pay than our day-to-day licensing, and we’ll share with you 80% of the deal!

If you’ve missed the info, check it out here.


If you guys have any further question regarding the new music composition service, please do not hesitate to take directly contact with me as I will be in charge of this new project.

  • Your transactions and sales info all in one place


We’ve simplified the display of all your money-related information: your banking details, a table with your balance and pending payments, details of the licenses you have sold... it’s all on the same page now, in the "Transactions" section.

  • Improved notifications and statistics

You will be notified when a listener likes one of your tracks, adds it to his favorites, to a playlist or reviews your album. The statistics section has been redesigned for a better browsing experience.

  • Personal blog

If you’ve created your own Jamendo blog in the past, it will still be visible in reading mode, but you won't be able to edit it anymore. We are well aware that some of you care a lot about this feature, so we’re working on new solutions for you to share news.

  • More is coming

 

We have got plenty of ideas to create a highly valuable artist experience on Jamendo, so stay tuned for our future updates!

Jamendo is a new source of music for Whyd!

 

Music is made to be shared. Here comes Whyd.

Whyd is a fast-growing social network for music lovers to collect and share the tracks they love, crafted in Paris by an international team. It allows you to go fetch any track you want from sources like Youtube, Soundcloud or Deezer, and share it on your profile and your friends feed. Looking to add more independent music to their constant stream of tunes, the Whyd team thought Jamendo was the perfect source to bring more diversity to the whole picture.

The platform is extremely simple: create a profile in a heartbeat, then just click on the "+ Add track" button, paste a Jamendo track URL and that's it! Heck, there's even a bookmarklet so you can add a track to Whyd directly from Jamendo!

"Never stop jamming" is their motto... Well, looks like we were meant to do this together!

ccMixter's BIG Summer Music Fest: Universe of Music

Ever wanted to take part in a big music festival? Now's your chance! Our friends at ccMixter are organising their BIG Summer Music Fest, with one goal in mind: to create a Universe of Music! A virtual and global event, where everyone will come together to create and share music with artists from everywhere in the world.

This boundless and collaborative musical melting pot spans every genre: acoustic folk, electronic dance, experimental music, hiphop, jazz, rock and so on. Each genre has its own space, its own virtual tent or stage, in which the music is gathered. It is possible to listen to the tracks created, as they are uploaded in the room! Every 2 weeks, the focus is on a specific group of genres. Here is the event calendar:

 

  • May 30 - June 13: songwriter, unplugged, folk, bluegrass, and country in the Pleiades Unplugged Lounge.
  • June 13 - June 27: reggae, funk, blues and jazz on the Omega Roots Stage.
  • June 27 - July 11: alternative, rock and pop/rock in the Andromeda Alternative Theatre.
  • July 11 - July 25: ambient, downtempo, groove, chill, experimental, and soundscape in the Spirograph Soundscape Room.
  • July 25 - August 8: hip-hop and triphop on the Hubble Hip-Trip Stage.
  • August 8 - August 22: house, dance, trance, dubstep, hardcore, electronic and progressive in the Deep Space Dance Tent.
  • August 23 - August 27: livestream video performances in the Pleiades Unplugged Lounge.
  • August 28 - August 30: three days of live-streaming all genres in The Galaxies Theater!


If you want to contribute, all you need to do is submit your own song (a capella or spoken word) or original sample, or your remix of any combination of the pells and samples created at ccMixter.org. You can listen to all the pells, samples and remixes that were already submitted. And if you want your creations to be included in albums (that will be distributed on Jamendo Pro, iTunes, Amazon, and more!), you can use the ccPlus upload form.

So you can take part in this one-of-a-kind event by creating music, but also sharing it via podcasts or other platforms, and curating playlists by genre (this will help create the playlist for the last 3 days of the event). And if you would like to support ccMixter for this awesome initiative, you can make a donation in the form of a voluntary ticket.
