Music Pool Berlin gets into Playlist(s)

­čÄ Welcome to our monthly "Discover Berlin" Playlist(s) ­čÄÂ


We decided to give something back to you and give you the opportunity to be featured on our Playlist(s) to spread your music to a wider audience. Our monthly curated playlists on Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube are here to showcase your talent and connect you to more listeners.


How it works?


  • Monthly Playlists: We feature 30 handpicked tracks every month across our Spotify, Tidal, and YouTube playlists. Each playlist spotlights fresh releases from emerging artists, giving them a platform to shine.


  • You can be on a playlist once every three months to give everyone the opportunity. 


  • Submission Guidelines: Do you have an upcoming release? Submit your track to playlist@musicpoolberlin.net by the 20th of each month for consideration in the upcoming playlist. We're always on the lookout for fresh sounds and exciting talent. Please also send direct links to your Song/Video and which platform you want to be featured on.


Why did we choose the following services?


  • Spotify: Despite its challenges, Spotify remains the go-to platform with the largest user base for music streaming.


  • YouTube: Video content continues to captivate audiences, making YouTube an essential platform for music promotion. We embrace diversity and recognize the power of visuals in enhancing the music experience.


  • Tidal: With a commitment to fairer payouts for artists, Tidal stands out as a streaming service that values creators' work. By featuring your music on Tidal, you'll not only reach listeners but also receive a higher compensation.


Join us on this musical journey as we support and celebrate independent Berlin artists and also get to know our growing community on a deeper level. 


Together, let's make your music heard! Submit your tracks today and let the world groove to your beats. ­čÄÁ­čîč

27.05.2024 2 pm tp 6pm Release 101

You've recorded your first songs - but what now? Especially before the artist's debut (but also with every subsequent release!), there are many things you should consider in order to lay the foundations for a smart and sustainable music career right from the start. But what assets - apart from the music - do you need for a successful release? How much time do you need to plan for and what resources can you use to make your first single a success? Together we will create a solid plan and get an overview of all the tools that can help you to successfully tackle this and all other releases!


1. Set a release date and create a schedule

2. Clarify rights/splits between the parties involved (contractually if necessary)

3. Register songs with collecting societies

4. Compile release assets (list as a freebie)

5. Search for distribution (DIY vs. label) + upload song

6. Create/update website / relevant social media profiles

7. List of helpful tools for the release

8. Prepare merch if necessary (and print)

9. Plan a release party if necessary (e.g. also as a live stream)

10. Pre-produce content + create marketing/promotion / social media plan

11. Day of the release: To Dos

12. After the release: What do I need to consider in the days/weeks after the release?

07.05. + 14.05. + 21.05.2024 14-18 Uhr // Von 0 auf 100 - Gemeinsam von der Idee zum Ergebnis

Diese Workshopreihe ist eine tolle Chance innerhalb einer begleiteten 3 w├Âchigen Reihe, den Weg des kreativen Prozesses in einer Gemeinschaft zu durchlaufen. Du entwickelst innerhalb von 3 Wochen deine Idee, deinen Song, dein Festival, dein DJ Set oder deinen Karriereplan als K├╝nstler:in.

Angefangen von der Ideensammlung, zur Entwicklung und Produktion bis zur Fertigstellung. Das besondere hierbei ist, dass du diesen Weg nicht allein f├╝r dich gehst, sondern in einer Gemeinschaft. Du profitierst dabei vor allem durch ein permanentes Feedback und Austausch mit anderen sowie einem inspirierenden Gruppengef├╝hl. An was du genau arbeitest, ob allein oder in einer Gruppe, bleibt dabei dir ├╝berlassen. In diesem Mentoring Programm geht es darum, sich aus seiner Comfort Zone zu bewegen und etwas neues auszuprobieren, neue Impulse zu bekommen und deinen Weg des kreativen Prozesses gemeinsam kennenzulernen. Der gesamte Prozess wird in einem ganzheitlichen Ansatz betrachtet und inhaltlich wie auch aus einer psychologischen Sichtweise von Fabian Ristau (psy. Berater und Artist) begleitet. Nebenbei lernst du andere Akteur:innen der Berliner Szene kennen und kn├╝pfst Kontakte f├╝r dein Netzwerk. Lass uns anfangen!

06.05.2024 2 pm to 6 pm // From concept to realization: DIY graphic design to create a digital presence as a musician (EPK, portfolio, social media and website)

The life of a musician involves many responsibilities: manager, administrator, designer, promoter and so on. For our music to be heard, it also has to be presented in a variety of media, and that means giving it a visual identity.

This workshop is therefore aimed at musicians who are looking to create graphic consistency in the presentation of their musical project on their own. The aim of this workshop is to help you establish a roadmap for the creation of your designs, to introduce you to free and practical tools, and to develop strategies for maintaining consistency and faithful representation of your musical project.

Using examples I've created for my own projects or for other music practitioners, we'll set up a step-by-step approach so you can apply it to your needs. How do you achieve a design that represents you, your project and your values? How do you simplify things while remaining effective when there are so many possibilities?

During the first part of the workshop, we'll all work together to create a coherent visual design for the release of an imaginary artist's EP. Then, building on this collective experience, each participant will reflect on these questions and begin to create their own graphic identity.
