What is it?

The BPM Junction record store is a self managed platform for independent and professional DJ's, producers and record labels, to buy, sell, promote and distribute electronic music online. Don't forget to check out our indiegogo gallery for screen shots of BPM Junction.
 

How it came about

The BPM Junction team consists of three experienced and passionate electronic music producers and DJ's. We have been making music and performing in the industry for a accumulative 15 years. We started out with a goal of creating a platform for electronic music producers to sell music independently of record labels and distributors.

We thought, "Yeh, that would be really cool.." We were later to learn it would be more than just cool. It could be what everyone is waiting for! Luckily we had our Bachelor of Business, and Bachelor of Science in our pockets, and away we went!

We conducted lots of research and discovered that in most cases electronic music producers receive as little as 25% per track sold. Many producers have advised they receive nothing...

 

Other problems

  • Musicians currently struggle to get sales reports from record labels.
  • Many musicians advise they receive no pay for tracks sold
  • Musicians have no admin controls over their music and so have no way of ever knowing how many sales they make or what they should receive in payment
  • Some of the most talented musicians go un-noticed and underappreciated with very little opportunity to have their music heard

 

We realised change needed to happen

We've begun creating a product that will make a difference!

You will help us to break down the barriers to entry for musicians. We want to pay them a fair amount for their music, from 85%-100% per track sold, depending on their chosen package.

 

Your help, will help!

We've already been approved for some funding from the Waterford City Enterprise Board, Ireland. We're just about ready to go and now we need your help.

We need to raise €7,000 to continue development of the BPM Junction website. We've come up with some very cool tokens of appreciation for your support whether you're a musician, or just see how important this service can be to musicians. 

Our service has been created by producers and DJ's through online surveys and live focus groups comprising of experienced DJ's, producers and record labels. We are so excited to bring this service to the people who need it! We aim to be live by early 2014 with your help.

Focus Group

If in the unfortunate case we don't reach our entire funding goal, we will use the funds we have raised to continue development of the site. Don't worry, this is important to us, we wont stop..

If you all decide to support us and we reach beyond our €7,000 goal the remainder of the money will go straight towards marketing the website. There is a lot to do and we need all the support we can get! We hope you see the potential and are as excited as we are.

"As a dj and a producer this whole setup sounds just perfect" (Darren Morsley, Sin Recordings, 2013)

"Very impressive and the whole project looks extremely positive. It’s a great idea and with the right financial backing I'm 100% sure it will work." "This is the future of music" (Colin Balzli, professional electronic music producer, 2013) 

 

Take control of your music and support other musicians to do the same!

 

 

We know how important you are and we want to show appreciation for it

To show appreciation for your help we've cut our prices by up to 50% for everyone who decides to support us. We've designed cool slipmats, T-shirts, and stickers to say thank you and we'll let the world know how cool you are for supporting musicians. We've even put together an EP with three exclusive tracks including 1 track created by each member of the BPM Junction team. Check out the teaser here! https://soundcloud.com/bpmjunction/sets/bpm-junction-ep-exclusive-to 

You can support us with any amount you choose and it will make us as happy as an electronic music producer in a Dave Smith giveaway bonanza!

We've set you up with very nice packages for when BPM Junction goes live and we'll give you some really cool and exclusive extras for supporting us to keep going!

The Impact

Our service is about making things easier and fairer for musicians. Your support will not only help you as a musician but it will help musicians all over the world! We live in the 21st century where people have come closer together. The internet has allowed us to break down barriers for people everywhere, in all walks of life. We want to continue with this trend and enable musicians to use the internet to reach their fans, and break down the old barriers, by allowing musicians to sell on a professional record store at the click of a button.

No more hoping a label will sign your music, or working hard and never getting paid. You can make your music, upload it to BPM Junction and get paid instantly.
