I have recently relocated to The SL Music Community Info Island. Although I am not officially open (opening info to be posted soon), I have 3 initial things:
1) Question: What RL DJ/Music Producer would you like to see/hear perform live into Second Life? ( Please keep it realistic. Don't say Tiesto. ) Please reply in comments with some of the DJs in RL you would love to hear in SL. Please DO NOT reply with "hey I can get you DJ such and such, you want him?" I am looking for serveral options, not agents looking to get money. I am looking for various options of RL DJs that we as a SL clubscene would like to hear in SL live.
2) Request: Prior to opening my new shop location, I have Club and DJ ad spaces available. I want these spaces filled PRIOR to opening. SO, any DJs, Clubs, Events, and Promoters, get over to the new RAVELONG LOCATION now, and get the best space. FREE rentals prior to opening! Just pay the space and I will refund you.
3) Please begin to focus your attention to these main groups in Second Life regarding SL DJ, Electronic Music, and Live Music:
a) "Live Turntable DJs" - For Live Turntable DJs, Electronic Music Producers, Beatmatchers, Event Promoters, and the fans that want to stay informed
b) "Live DJ's" - For Playlist DJs, MP3 DJs, Request DJs, Talk DJs, Mix DJs, and the fans that want to stay informed
c) "Electronic Music Informer" - For electronic music producers, and the promotion to fans of electronic music in SL
d) "Live Music Enthusiasts" - For Live Musicians, Live Singers, and the promotion of Live Music in SL
e) "Independant Musicians" - For Independant RL and SL musicians and singers, and the promotion of music to fans.
---There are many wonderful groups in SL that are geared to more specific clubs, djs, and styles of music, anytime you find someone interesting, make sure to check their profile for the groups they belong to. You'll find some interesting niches too. HOWEVER!!!! We also need to encourage people to STOP creating more groups with the same function and same people. We do NOT need any more overall general DJ promo groups, we do not need any more groups about Electronic music. ... I'll say again that niche groups are excellent.... but trying to start another "ALL DJs join this group" group is not needed.
