A recent study has revealed that around 95% of artists can’t make a living from their music alone. The fight to become one of the industry’s best and brightest is real, and UMEK’s team is well aware of it – after all, they’ve been in the business for over 25 years now.
“I’ve probably seen every struggle there is,” says UMEK, world-renowned Techno DJ and producer. “It’s like yin and yang: making music is one of the best things in life, and fighting to be seen and heard sucks big time. I knew we had to do something to help the artists out there.”
UMEK and his team have created Viberate – a music research and analytics platform that monitors all major social, streaming and music channels (radio, Spotify, Beatport, Instagram, YouTube, etc.) in one place and creates insights that artists can use to make career decisions that save them time and money.
“We believe that having access to reliable information makes all the difference. You can discover which radio stations you could pitch to, see which playlists stream artists similar to you, or even which countries and clubs could have the right audience for your tour. The best part – you can do it all with just one tool.”
Viberate also made sure everything is neatly visualized for easier use, and invites you to test their analytics for free. If you’re an artist, you can start by checking if your page is already up, seeing how your stats look, and get a better picture of what analytics can do for you.
