I took alot of critisizm for that song. When I was in a shoe store some one notice who I was and gave me the third degree for not making it more street. Yet, the audiance I wanted to reach loved the song for its totaly fun feel. I wanted the song to be from the prospective of the avarage girl going out with her friends to the club on a friday night. I think we accomplished the goal. I have other material with alot of know artist.
Since I am not actualy signed and distrobuted by a big record label all works have been released localy but of the highest quality. I had 3 songs on radio heavy rotation, and a music video, not bad for not having corporate backing. We have alot of to the brand to come but its a slow grind but its fun.
Good thing for you, record labels are making themselves irrelevant. YouTube, Pandora.com, and a decent web site will be your best friends. The market you're targeting is definitely tech savvy, and good for you for spotting it. It's about damned time.
I owned a nightclub about 10 years ago in the STL area. Nothing, and I mean NOTHING
, got the 18-24 year old white girls on the dance floor like urban music. They all screamed like crazy as soon as soon as they heard us mix in the synthed "Caaaaaaalifornia Looo-ooooooovvvve". Point being, there was a big spot in the playlist for R&B and Hip Hop, even though the crowd was 90% white. They eat that shit up. Still do. We weren't playing really hard stuff. I doubt most of them knew or understood the lyrics, they just loved the hook.
In light of the discovery of your career, maybe the 404 can wait a while. There's an allure to people living the California life, especially as you move east.
Anyway, keep it up.
