Artist Experience : DJ Haidz (Winner of the Life In Colour Kalamazoo DJ Invitational)

lifeincolorkalamazoo

This month Wavo & Life In Color gave contest winner DJ Haidz the opportunity of a lifetime, the chance to open for one of the hottest acts in dance music; The Chainsmokers, at one of the craziest events in the world; LIC Kalamazoo. Needless to say, the young Dj had an unforgettable evening. We caught up with him this week to find out all about the experience. Here’s what went down!

DJ Haidz on…. getting prepped

“My friend and I arrived early to make sure my equipment would work. Everything ran smooth and I got to play with the speakers for almost 2 hours before they needed to run official sound tests with the other acts. The backstage crew were really helpful and friendly”

DJ Haidz on….  the set

“This was my first event like this and I didn’t know what to expect. I got to play an extra 10ish minutes onto my set as well. After my set I met some of the other lesser known djs who I have been talking to on FB now”

DJ Haidz on…. the experience

“one of the coolest nights of my life”

Once again, congratulations to DJ Haidz for winning the competition and a big thanks to all who participated! We hope to see all artists in our future contests!

How we deal with cheating at wavo

Wavo-cheating

One of the big ideas behind Wavo is that a robust community of music lovers can help surface great music and artists more quickly than traditional labels, media and radio.  And then after we can help connect those trending artists directly to industry to take them to the next step.

We do this by letting our community vote up the tracks they like so that they trend and reach a wider audience on our platform.  We call it crowdsourced music discovery.

Over the past year Wavo has grown to have more crowdsourced music charts and opportunities for emerging artists than any other service on the planet. Our communities have helped thousands of new artists get tracks signed, play the largest festivals in the world and break their tracks across our site and others.

In trying to build the most democratic platform for music distribution, one thing we take very seriously is manipulating voting by any means: manual, mechanical, or otherwise. This forbidden vote manipulation can include (but is not limited to):

  • Using fake or multiple accounts, voting services, or any other software to increase votes on Wavo
  • Spamming Wavo communities asking for votes
  • Participating in a ‘voting ring’ – a group of people who share links to their submissions with the expectation of “vote for my track and I’ll vote for your track.”

Briefly, an individual voting on a track should be doing it because he or she likes the music.

Having said that, marketing is a key tool in any emerging artist’s toolbox.  We are absolutely cool with artists marketing their tracks.  For example, asking your fans on other networks (Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitter, Reddit, etc) to vote for your track is fine.  Marketing is not cheating.

Unfortunately, as we’ve grown, we’ve had to deal with some users try to game the system and we wanted to make clear how we deal with cheating:

  • Wavo has automated systems in place to detects various kinds of suspicious activity using multiple different signals.

  • When suspicious activity is detected, the team is notified.  In cases where the vote manipulation is clear and obvious, the artist that submitted the track will be notified as well and will receive a message like the one below:Wavo-cheating

  • We investigate each instance of cheating manually and take action when warranted.  These actions can include anything from votes being removed to a user being banned.  We also reserve the right to notify contest partners of vote manipulation.

  • When a contest ends, we will again manually check each track for cheating.

Often we get messages from users reporting suspicious activity. That is awesome, it helps keep the site clean and we look into every report we get.  But we also want to make clear that in most cases we are already aware of the issue — we just wait until we have manually checked all of the votes, so that we don’t make any mistakes.

Cheating or attempting to manipulate voting will result in your votes being removed, money you spent wasted, your account being banned, and in some cases your reputation taking a hit with exactly the people you want to impress.  So don’t do it.

Let’s all work together to make Wavo the one place on the web where music breaks for one reason and one reason only — because the people love it.

[PREMIERE] Feel the Robot on New Ryan Playground Track

ryan

This new Ryan Playground is named well. The beats made to sound robotic with a trippy synthesized instrument and a background drum beat.  Ryan says “We all feel robotized at some point which is why the beat is kinda robotic in itself too… And i did that beat in summertime i was in that party mood so the track has also a kinda party vibe in it cause we all need to kinda let it go in that turning to robotic society”. We think the drums are particularly noteworthy. Genevieve Ryan Martel, AKA Ryan Playground, began playing drums when she was 5 and the practice shows.

Watch Crowd go Wild after Zhu Drops “Faded” at his First Ever Live Performance

zhu

For the past few months Zhu’s been a mystery. He blew up after rumors spread that he was a relative of Disclosure and he’s been hot on our radar ever since. Still, he managed to keep his air of mystery by not playing any public shows. This lasted until now when footage surfaced from his first live performance at the Listen Out festival in Sydney, Australia. He must’ve wanted to wait until his audience numbered in the thousands to play live. Even more impressive is that the entire crowd sing along to the track in the video, his smash hit “Faded”.

Snoop Dogg & Pharrell Collaborate on New Album

snoop x pharrell

The duo that brought us smash hits like “Beautiful” and “Drop it Like it’s Hot” are back in the studio together. Snoop announced the news in an interview with MTV that Pharrell helped make his upcoming album “from top to bottom”. Big news for Snoop since Pharrell is the mastermind behind some of the most popular tracks of the past decade. “It’s completely different than anything we’ve ever done. It feels good, sounds good, looks good.”, according to Snoop. “Snoop’s album is better than mine”, said Pharrell is an interview with LA’s Power 106 back in June.

We’re really looking forward to see this tape drop, even more so after we found out there was feature from both Charlie Wilson and Stevie Wonder as well as production by Symbolyc One. The release date is still unknown.
