Why can’t I select my track to upload?
Check if your track is set to public on SoundCloud and that it has finished processing. Also make sure that the ‘Enable app playback’ option is enabled on the permissions tab.
Why is my track not visible in the charts?
The chart refreshes every 2 hours, so right after you’ve submitted your track you will not be visible in the chart yet. Our chart has a maximum rank of 999, you’ll see that as soon as you start collecting votes you’ll enter or rise up the chart pretty quickly!
Can I remove a track from Alliance?
Yes, most of the time you can. Just go to Twitter and tweet the URL of your demo to @RawXRecords using the hashtag #RawXCompetition. We will reply once the track has been deleted. Sometimes, we cannot remove a track due to the terms and conditions that apply to the Alliance. Either way, we’ll always try to find a satisfactory solution for everyone.
I have another question
Please contact us at email@example.com or tweet to @RawXRecords using the hashtag #RawXHelp.
Alliance and competitions F.A.Q.
What is Alliance?
Alliance its a collaboration compilation and competition, created to enjoy production and music, it consists in a competition betwen artists, making theyre own tracks out of some sound, sample…
Can anyone sign into Alliance?
Yes, everyone could participate on Alliance, theres 2 parallel lines on Alliance, the first one its for our own artists, and parallel to the second one, its a competition to seek for new artists, and there is where you can participate on it.
Does the #1 automatically get a record deal?
No. Alliance is NOT a contest. Remember: People with the biggest online following are NOT necessarily the best producers. Alliance is an ever-evolving competition that enables you to influence your presence in the otherwise impregnable pile of demos. We listen to way beyond the top 100 and the decision to sign anything is ALWAYS based on the quality of the track.
Do you listen to the demos daily?
Yes. We listen to the demos on a daily basis and leave A&R feedback as much as possible!
How often can I upload a track?
You can upload one track once a week.
Do you automatically sign me and my track once I submit my track?
No. We have an option of 3 months in which we can decide if we want to release it or not. After that you are free to do with your track what you want and aren’t bound to anything.
The terms & conditions say you have an option on managing me and my publishing. Why?
RawX & Zero13 is not just a record label that pushes out music. We build careers. Big careers start with development of great musical talent to superstar DJ’s which we put a enormous amount of effort in. We want mutual commitment that enables us to do just that. However, that doens’t mean you can’t participate if you already have management in place. Talent comes in all shapes and sizes and options are always negotiatable.
What kind of release can I get?
It depends on the quality of the track. Besides RawX Records, we have a handful of sub-labels, all representing a different genre and feel. So if a track meets the RawX standards, we’ll sign you on RawX Records. If your tracks meets a standard we feel suits another label, a release on a RawX sub-label is also possible.
