Mixtapes and How Artists Use Them to Gain Exposure

Mixtapes and how an artist can use them to gain popularity

What is a mixtape you might ask? In today’s music industry a mixtape has a few different meanings. It can contain one single artist’s musical works with other featured artists, many different artists on a compilation mixtape, or even just instrumental tracks from one producer or many producers. This article will discuss each of those topics.

When a music artist releases a mixtape, they are either signed to a major music label and want to keep fans interested or is an unsigned artist and is looking to sign a recording contract. When an already established major recording artist releases a mixtape, they are letting fans know they still have what it takes to make hits and also hype up their next album release at the same time. A great way for unsigned artists looking for a record deal is to release a mixtape. With the internet, mixtapes and music can be heard by anyone at little to no cost.  Music artists do not have to know someone on the ‘inside’ of a recording label in order for someone to sample their music. It’s as easy as taking a few minutes to go on the internet and give a listen. Some artists that have just been signed to a major recording contract may be required to continue to release street products before they actually release their debut album. This will help the record companies get a feel for how this artist will perform for them in the long run. Some unsigned artists that have signed a deal with a record company and have released a underground product or two after that, may find that they no longer can live up to the hype they had before signing a recording deal.

Sometimes these music compilations contain many different artists and their musical work. What this does is help save the record companies money by releasing a few of their artist’s tracks and seeing which gets the most positive feedback. They will let the streets help them make a decision on what is the best track to release as the next single. This will make sure the record companies do not waste money on releasing a single that will just become a flop.

Music producers also use mixtapes to let record companies they are serious about making beats for major recording artists. Half of a hit song is the instrumental part. Although not nearly as popular as a recording artist’s mixtape, they still aid record comapines that are seeking star talent.




Mixtapes and the Music Industry

The digital availability of mixtapes


The Music Industry

In today’s digital age of music, downloading music is very common. Mobile phones have evolved to allow you to browse the internet anywhere you are. You can also plug headphones into your mobile device and listen to music you have on it or on the internet. What defines a mixtape today is much different than what a mixtape was 20 years ago. Mixtapes 20 years ago were mostly many different musical tracks recorded on a cassette tape. Today, even though cassette tapes are obsolete and the new format is CD, which is on its way of being replaced by digital music, these compilations are still called by the same name.

These products in the hip hop and rap genre are used today to break new artists. Unknown or well-established artists use musical tools to hopefully land a recording contract with a major record label. In today’s hip hop music industry, it is a must even for signed music artists to release projects to the streets. This helps to keep the artists relevant with their fans and also remind them that they still have what it takes to make hit records. Many artists will release free music downloads in between their album releases to hype up their retail efforts. Sometimes, if not most of the time, these projects are better and more in tune with the artist’s emotions then their retail album. This is because many of the record companies want their music to be album specific and liked by the general population. Mixtapes contain raw and uncut music that may not be suitable for an album, so it is released on a mixtape.

These products have been around for a very long time, but one artist that made these underground music compilations very popular was 50 Cent. He claims to have to be the inventor of these projects, but that is not true. Artist were being signed from street material before him. 50 Cent may have invented releasing a whole project with just him and his G-Unit members on it, but he did not invent it. DJ Clue, Fabolous and a whole slew of other artists would say otherwise.

Many aspiring hip hop musicians use these music compilations to help boost their career. They use this as a way for their music to be heard. Anyone that is serious about their music career will use this product to help establish them in their local community, city, state or even worldwide by means of the internet. Although these works mostly contain hip hop and rap music, some r&b artists have also used them to help establish themselves.
