The ability to play music is one of the key features of mobile phones since their inception in the early 2000s. A smartphone without the ability to play music is not really a smartphone. It is a feature that is essential and always expected in every smartphone that is released. A lot of times smartphones don’t give much emphasis on creating default applications for editing and mixing audio. This is often overlooked and ignored. This has resulted in people completely ignoring this feature in the smartphone. Users could potentially be making beats and remixes that can be for monetary gain or just for fun. Bandcamp is an online service where musicians can share their music and sell it online. Its sleek design and the name-your-own-price system have helped the service attract many great up-and-coming talents.
Band camp is unique in a way that it truly appreciates the musicians on their platform. In Bandcamp, a large proportion of the money does go directly to the musicians who wrote the music (a massive 85 percent of the money gets forwarded to the musician and 90 percent if your sales go beyond $5000). It’s also that their model lets you get in touch with the musicians via their Bandcamp accounts, or to more easily track down their personal websites and Facebook/Twitter/WordPress/etc pages from those account details.
Another feature that separates Bandcamp from the rest is Many musicians already have their own personal websites, but as always the problem is how we get people to discover those sites — some musicians release products under their own names; others via a band name or indeed several noms-de-plume depending on the genre, while plenty more release through a label alongside similarly minded stablemates. However, if you just enter ‘musician’s name bandcamp’ into any search engine, and if their wares are available via Bandcamp, a link to the appropriate page should appear. This approach also bypasses the vagaries of navigating musician’s own websites, whose design may vary from ‘quirky homespun’ to ‘designed-by-an-art-student impenetrable’. In Bandcamp the very first thing you see on each page is a large Play button, so you can be listening to your chosen musician within seconds.
This is one of the only platforms that give their all to their content creators, which is extraordinary to see in this industry.
