My name is Jonathan Sykes, I go by the name of Double Liines and I have been DJ and Producing music for the past 16 years, my goal was to become the next biggest brightest thing to enter the music scene, this was my ultimate goal. As time went on I put more pressure onto myself to make this dream a reality, I spent a lot of time, money and effort on my dream, I wanted to take my passion for music and make this a reality. Year after year I invested my time, money and full effort into producing and DJing, everything I was doing was because of this goal I had set but not only that I wanted to prove to myself that it really was possible to make my dream come true. It seemed the harder I tried the further away I got from this ever coming to fruition, this led me on a downward path and ultimately questioning where my life was going, why no one was listening to my music?, how I could get my music heard?, am I on the right path in life, am I wasting my time, your not good enough etc.
During this period of struggling was where I found the idea for Music Liinks, I looked at ways on which would benefit not only new producers but would allow us all to connect through a platform especially designed for this purpose. I wanted a website that would allow artists, record labels and fans to easily find music that was suited to their individual needs, and with this in place it would eliminate the noise and help people who want to get their music heard, heard all over the world. Djing and producing music has become very affordable and with this comes a influx of music being sent to record labels, the record labels as a whole are struggling to keep up with this demand. Music Liinks can help Artists get their music heard, by Uploading their music to the website, it will allow other users from around world to quickly and easily find music that is suited to your individual taste.
HOW IT WORKS
The website is quite complex on its workings but the spine of the website allows the artists to upload one track every 30 days, after the 30 day period the track is then removed from the website and is archived within the artists profile. This ensures the website will not only have the Artists best available music on but will also allow the website to breathe with new music on a daily basis.
Fans can search for new music that is in tune with what they want to find, by searching for what music suits them, fans can give their support that many artists are struggling to find.
This along with other implemented features that give's the Artist a fair and equal chance of getting heard, this is made possible by the search engine that has been specially developed, by allowing the results of the search to be randomised, this allows artists, record labels and fans from all over the world take a take a lucky dip (so to speak) on what music they have searched for. According to the latest findings the top result of a search on google gets a whopping 33% of the clicks, 2nd is 18%, 3 is 12% and so on, by randomising the results table we can give all artist a chance of getting the number 1 slot and getting other users to listen to their music.
This is just a small fraction of what Music Liinks can offer and I believe is the answer to many problems we face as musicians.
Music Liinks has taken roughly 2 1/2 years to develop, I used the funds to do this from my savings, It took longer than I thought it would just by the complexions of adding more elements and features, by doing this it allow's the users to fully take advantage of and allow them to benefit equally and find music that resonates with them, each feature works in cohesion with another and gives the user ultimate control on what music they are looking for.
It was created with Artist, Record Labels and Fans at its core, it is a free to use platform and allows you to find new music quickly and easily, this is made possible by the engine that has been developed. It gives Artists equal Opportunity to get their music heard and this could be from anywhere around the world.
As mentioned above there are more features in place that I will be sharing with you soon, I would love for you to join us at Music Liinks, gain feedback and overall comments to see what is working and what isn't, the goal is to connect you easily to more artists, record labels and fans, but to do this by zooming in on what music you want to hear rather than suggested song lists.
