Hello everyone and welcome to the Electronic Music Alliance - November 2019 Newsletter!
Things have really taken off with the EMAlien Mothership this past month as we've been orbiting the Blue Planet, seeking talented and active electronic music producers, whilst transmitting playlists to your favourite streaming sites! More members have been abducted in November and this is really turning in to a city in the sky with music coming out of our EARs! We have some special announcements in this edition but first, let's take a quick look at those numbers!
Yes, this is the part of the newsletter where we dive in to the stats from the last month and see how we're getting on and we're so happy to say that we've reached another EMAzing landmark this month as we have reached over 100 releases on our community run label Electronic Alliance Records (EAR) since we launched! You could say we've been giving you a right EARful! Not only that but there's now over 3,000 of you Earth legends following our EMA Twitter profile, spreading all the good vibes around! Here's a look at some other numbers:
So really, a MASSIVE thank you to everyone showing your support and we're very grateful to all of you EMAzing followers who listen in to our weekly playlists! Big shout as well to all our EMAliens on the Mothership making it such a fun and vibrant place to be! Keep up the awesome vibes everyone!
We have our regular weekly EMA playlists going across the platforms that you listen to the most with the music in these as "hot off the press" as possible featuring tracks no older than 3 months from our members. To help rotate the latest beats, we've also added the Apple Music and Hearthis platforms to our rotation so there's no shortage of places where you can find our music! Here's a little reminder of our schedule:
In this part of the newsletter, we feature one of the EMA curated playlists shared with us this month and so we'd like to take you on a little bit of a chilled out trip as EMA member jerdie shares with us her picks of melodic sounds in her playlist called "EMAliens - Melodic November" - check it out below and embrace the zen:
Electronic Alliance Records
It's been another bonanza with our community run label Electronic Alliance Records as we now have over 100 releases, which we're just a little bit excited about! With so many talented producers within the Mothership, the catalogue continues to grow each month as more EMAliens look to beam down their beats to planet Earth! Make sure you follow us on our Beatport page to keep in the loop about the latest releases. Wrap your EARs around these:
"Featured Artist" Returning Next Month
A quick note about the Featured Artist section as we had to rethink how we'd go about doing this after the success of EAR. We will be bringing this section back next month and feature, at random, one of the artists who has released on our label from November. This will give the artists a chance to tell us all a little bit more about themselves and give them the opportunity to shine in the spotlight! So who will it be? Find out next month!
Across the Airwaves
One of the things we aim to do with EMA is reach out and network with radio stations so we can spread the music and good vibes to as many places as possible. A great example of this came in the past couple of weeks as a new radio station called Skylab and presenter Katy Jay, who has been a long term friend of Co Founder Nicky Havey, started playing out some tracks from members of EMA on her Mixed Feelings show which showcases chilled out music. We look forward to tuning in to her weekly shows but be sure to follow their Mixcloud page here so you don't miss a beat!
Of course, it wouldn't be an electronic music community if there wasn't a DJ mix to talk about and the talented deck magician and EMA Co Founder DaveyHub has put together a flawless Acid Techno Mix featuring tracks from the Mothership. There'll be more themed mixes coming up in 2020 as this is something we are wanting to get more involved with, along with our own EMA radio shows. For now, enjoy Davey's mix over on our Mixcloud page.
1 Year Anniversary Coming Soon
As we seem to be on a "milestone" role in this month's newsletter, we might as well end on a massive high by starting the hype of our 1 Year Anniversary Compilation, which is due for release the day after EMA turns 1 year old on 3rd January 2020! When we first started this venture, we had no idea how things would pan out and it's grown beyond any expectation, spreading positivity, friendship and, most importantly, music from talented people who would have otherwise struggled to find a place of belonging.
We can't wait to celebrate our first year compilation with you and we'll have more about this as we draw nearer the release date!
We hope you have enjoyed this month’s newsletter, let us know in the comments below and catch you soon for the next one!
