How to setup Spotify as an Artist (DJ)


One of the big new platforms for DJs & Producers from the last 8 months and looking forward to the next 12 months is the advances in Spotify.  With more distributors for electronic music pushing directly to the platform and more countries coming on board where the platform can be accessed, it’s becoming one of the go-to places to find and consume music.

For us at Data Transmission we see the rise of Spotify as something you are either going to do right now – get those numbers building, or you are going to do in 6-8 months time when its properly booted off and then you can join and be behind the curve.   Spotify for any young artist or growing artist is a brand new source of regular content for your other socials networks.   Spotify has made it very easy now with the advent of ‘Scan Codes’ for you to share your playlist/profile with your fans.  This works in a similar way to your Snapchat Ghost, whereby fans scan the strip and it brings them directly to your page.

We thought we’d bring you a simple beginners guide for those Artists/DJs who want to get on the ball now, so strap in as we ease you into Spotify.

In this video, I’m gonna discuss why you as a DJ should be using Spotify and go through a beginners guide to the platform.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
