1.  What Genre is my Music? – Playlist Pitching

With Spotify offering thousands of genres to choose from, defining your song’s genre(s) has become a challenging task. However, selecting the right genres is crucial, especially for newcomers to the industry, as it significantly impacts your track’s discoverability.

Thanks to DAW’s like Logic Pro X and Ableton, creating music is easier than ever before. But this also means the competition is bigger than ever.
In order to break through the mass of thousands of songs that get uploaded daily, providing metadata for your tracks is crucial.

We’ve trained our AI with datasets of thousands of songs and matching descriptions, to help it understand music and genres possibly even better than you do. Curious about how to use this for your music?

2.  Self-Promote Your Music: Create Custom Audiences

In the music industry, 40 years ago, you needed a record deal to get your music heard. Fast forward to 2023, and you have powerful marketing tools at your fingertips, such as Instagram, TikTok, and Google Ads. To maximize the effectiveness of your advertising, it’s essential to narrow down your audience as much as possible. Metal Heads are unlikely to click on an ad for your new Hyper-Pop song – or are they?

If you have your song ready for release and struggle to find the perfect match with another artist’s project, let me introduce you to Cyanite’s Similarity Search. Curious? We’ve dedicated an entire blog entry to elucidate the process: How to Create Custom Audiences for Pre-Release Music Campaigns in Facebook, Instagram, and Google –

3.  Write Press Releases with Cyanite

While promoting your tracks on Instagram and other social media platforms is an excellent starting point, music marketing is quite similar to receiving presents on Christmas – the more, the merrier.
Crafting a press release and submitting it to blogs or platforms like SubmitHub is an effective way to get more attention for your music.

Although producing your music feels natural, describing the finished product from an external perspective can be challenging. By utilizing Cyanite’s Auto-Tagging and Mood Detection algorithms, you can bypass the arduous task of finding the right words.
