CYH – Exclamation (Outertone Free Release)

by RouteBot on March 28, 2015

billy woodford nocopyrightsounds youtube music channel free streamingNCS is one of the most popular record labels and promotional channels on YouTube. NCS Founder – Billy Woodford was nice enough to answer some of our questions to give you a bit of an insight into him and his label.

Q: What is NCS and how did you start?

NCS is a music collective with a service. We allow our music to be freely used for the public on YouTube & Twitch
with no copyright issues and their monetization capability fully intact.

Q: You currently have over 1.5 million followers on YouTube – Why do you think it grew so fast and how do you stand out from the pack?

First of all, I founded NCS in August 2011 (It only seemed like last week!), there were nowhere near as many music brands around on YouTube then so NCS kinda had a head start. Secondly NCS is not just a regular music brand/curator channel uploading music a couple of times a week. We have a service that no one is doing right now. We offer the entire NCS release catalogue to the whole public of Twitch & YouTube to use in their content.

Q: What are your top 5 most loved tracks at the moment?

Hellberg – The Girl (feat. Cozi Zuehlsdorff)

Timmy Trumpet – Freaks (feat. Savage)

Curbi – Discharge

James Bay – Hold Back The River

Kygo – Firestone

Q: If you had the chance to pick anyone, past or present, who would you most want to promote on NCS?

Mt Eden!

Q: What is the coolest thing you own?

Good question.. I do have a unopened coca-cola bottle from the FIFA world cup in 2002! More recently I would say its the YouTube 1 million subscriber award its immense!

Q: What advice would you give to any aspiring dj/producers out there?

Being in my position I would say produce and do what you enjoy. Keep doing what you do and believe in it.

Q: NCS has had a very busy 2014 .. so what do you have planned for 2015?

We have another compilation album coming in May. We plan to have our followers be heavily involved with it. (annoucing today 27th) I want NCS to continue as it is right now and represent more diverse music. I have some other things in the works but its better for me to keep them a secret right now :)

SoundCloud Page

Out with the old and in with the new. Ever since SoundCloud redesigned its iOS and Android app last year, with the fresh, modern, flat design, it seemed the desktop site had been left in the dirt and forgotten.

With a new update, the site gets some welcome flat design tweaks, with some nice additions adding to the functionality.

SoundCloud Old Top

New
Top Bar

The top bar loses the gradients, for solid colours. Icons are redone to suite the modern style.

Old
SoundCloud Old Bottom

New
Bottom Bar

The bottom play, pause, skip, previous bar, has been stretched across the page, with an additional slider to scrub through a track. As before, this bar stays locked to the bottom when exploring through the site, continuing to play your music.

It’s not huge features or a redesign, but it’s subtle differences that bring the site to the 21st century.

For an idea of what a redesign could look like, check out Medium’s mockup.

YouTube is preparing to relaunch their live streaming platform so they can compete head-on with Twitch.

Last year Google tried to buy Twitch before it was eventually acquired by Amazon.

YouTube has had a streaming platform for some time, but their technology has been a long way behind Twitch and they have struggled to gain traction. However, if they were to get the technology up to speed and integrated with the largest video platform in the world and then offer Google’s world beating advertising platform, is has to be a win.. right?

Exclusive Interview: Stamen!

by RouteBot on March 16, 2015

stamen musicStamen “Nemanja Stamenkovic” is a House producer with a great reputation. Recently Stamen was nice enough to sit down with us and answer some of your questions.

Q: What inspired you to start making music and at what age?

After some time of my DJ careers I decided to make contact with music production because I saw all the big DJs will also have their own songs.
This was 2008. and I was then only 15 years old.

I remember when I installed Ableton and set up first keyboard I said: What the f*** is this? It was very strange to me that the first contact with music production. I started to work hard, 5-6 hours a day. How I got into it I did not think about my school and nothing other. A few year after my active and inactive productions every day I had a finished my first song and the time has come to ask for a record label that would like to release.

In 2011 when one of the publishing house sent a reply that they want to publish my first song I was very happy. That feeling after that never again never experienced. Very soon after that I started to release music with many great label etc… 2012 year I started the with my own publishing house “Ibiza Ibiza Records” and very quickly I made a success in the music industry with my label and of course it helped me a lot to get in contact with other artists, share experience…. Very soon after that started to be happening magic that my songs they started to support the most famous dj’s on the world and the same to my music plays in the world’s best clubs like Amnesia Ibiza, Space Ibiza and many more… That has contributed a lot in career and I do concerts/gigs with names like Benni Benassi, David Morales, Axwell, Sebastian Ingrosso, Tom Novy, Arno Cost, Richard Gray, Alex Gaudiano, Daren Emerrson, Brodinski, Cristian Varela, Avicii, Felix Da Housecat, and many more well-knows artist. After all these efforts, obstacles and now I’m very happy as I work with the best publishing houses/label – artist on the world.

Q: Where did you learn your skills from, was it self taught or through education?

Never from anyone did not ask for help to assist me in music production special then I lived in the city where I think no one seriously worked out that way about electronic music. I always thought that I can alone best understand the music and not asking for help from anyone. I thought if I ask for help from anyone, then it is not me, not my talent.

Q: What are your top 5 most loved tracks at the moment?

1. STAMEN, Lenny OBryan – Come on (Original Mix) [SONY MUSIC]

2. STAMEN – Feeling (Original Mix) [Ibiza Ibiza Records]
3. Curbi – Discharge (Original Mix) [Spinnin Deep]
4. Eric Prydz, Chvrches – Tether [Pryda Recordings]
5. Fehrplay – Pyara (Original Mix) [mau5trap]

Q: If you had the chance to pick anyone, past or present, who would you most want to collaborate with?

There are many producers with what I would like to make a special cooperation but I can single out Roger Sanchez.

Q: What advice would you give to any aspiring dj/producers out there?

Just listen to own heart and what they do with to work love.

Q: What is the coolest thing you own?

Pleasure and love for what I do. :)

Q: You have been very busy in in last few year .. so what do you have planned for 2015?

I had a break for a tour in the last year due to personal reasons. This year 2015 I will start again with great tours and of course the issuance of new music in the best labels.

Q: Then specific questions about growth.. tracks.. etc

This year I expect one of the biggest trades in my career. My team and I have already started to prepare big plans to make regular supposed to begin in the summer. This year also my career in terms of musical production will come back in a big way with great support. We are currently working with a team on that, and I can not talk about it yet but you’ll be among the first to know.
