I’m sure everyone or almost everyone here follows Auxy on Soundcloud. So that means most of you have seen the FLOOD of reposts. 13 reposts in two days. That’s insane. Back in the day when I got my first repost, reposts were rare. To be hoped for whenever your released a song. You would try your hardest to get that repost, and the plays you would get would prove it. Songs back then got over 500 plays from reposts. Now, in the most recent flood of reposts, has barely earned 100. And I’m in the middle. Songs like “Lost Hope” by ReZonance have 53. 53. Drink that in for a second. What has the worth of a repost come to? This is like inflation! If we keep producing more reposts, the quality and value will go down. People won’t try as hard, and therefore the quality of our music goes down. Reposts are worth less now. I get less excited for every repost. People get less time to listen to reposts as there’s always a ton more coming out. And the artist don’t get the credit they deserve.
Now, they might say they’re trying to discover new artists, which is a good thought. But that’s what the BTC is for, and they’ve said that themselves. The reposts should be a step below a feature, where the songs can get milked for all they plays they’re worth. Only repost the best of the newest artists, and only songs that shine above the rest should get reposted. They’ve already discovered some amazing people, like Phoenix(great song btw) and IAATOE, and FroMan, and HAYW1R3, and TWO, and TAURUS, and VIBRNT, and Shroak. It would not surprise me if you didn’t recognize those names, because they got drowned out in the flood of reposts.
Now you might say, "But captain, that means they’ll only repost DeCruz and Austin and Phil and You and IVO and black ocean!"
The same rules apply to us, except on a higher level. Only songs that we make that shine above the rest of the songs on our level get reposted. To keep the value up.
Keep reposts to a few a week. Not 13 in 2 days.
