This is brilliant. What a way to grab people’s attention to your music.
Release music that’s only available for one month.
Do it regularly so you can feature new artists all the time.
And how clever, to produce it easily and give it a super appealing low fi vibe, record it on a phone.
Listen to Etran de L’Aïr‘s “Music from Saharan WhatsApp,” buy it, and keep tuned in for more from Sahel Sounds.
“For the year of 2020, Sahel Sounds presents “Music from Saharan WhatsApp.” Every month, we’ll be releasing an EP from a musical group in the Sahel. Every album will be recorded on a cellphone, and transmitted over WhatsApp, and uploaded to Bandcamp – where it will live for one month only. Available for pay as you want, 100% of the sales will go directly to the artist or group. After one month, the album will be replaced by another one, until the end of the year.” ~ Read more about this wicked project on their Bandcamp page.
