SUNDAY by KASTILLA

Andrea Young

Love the breezy Sunday feel of this track!  Already added to our Spotify 'Aspenbeat New Gems' playlist https://open.spotify.com/track/4sFsgkGt8mEkaV9vfmcrQC?si=fNGWeIr4TASGqz1ucfG7SQ, follow us and the playlist there as you can!  Please send high quality mp3 to andrea@aspenbeat.com with 'Fluence Request - Artist Name - Track Title' in the subject line of the email and we'll include on other playlists and shows.  Love the vocals on this, will look forward to your further developing your sound/arrangements, would love to hear more complex production behind you.  Thanks for your submission, good luck with your music!

This song has a great feel to it. The production is great and relevant with today's sounds. The song definitely gets me moving. The only feedback I have for the song is that there is a LOT going on melody-wise. Granted, it's an uptempo song, but I would have given the melody a little more room to breathe. I think what could help enhance this song is if you carved out one of the verses and had a rapper on the track to give it a different flow. It could also give the ears a little break from the autotune effect. Overall, great job, I actually listened to it a few times! Very talented writer.

Nice stuff.  No notes from me on songwriting or performance. 

Now some questions.

1. What are your career goals? Radio play? Recording? Licensing and syncs? Income from a publishing deal? Soundtracks? (I can see that one working well for obvious reasons.) All these paths need to be investigated.

2. Your social media strategy will be key. Make sure that you reply to every comment that may come in. Turn early fans into evangelists, especially the ones who contributed to this video. Get them to spread the word.  

3. If you don't already, get someone to handle getting your material on streaming music services, especially someone who knows how to get your songs on the best and music influential new music/new discovery playlists. They're becoming increasingly important. Ask Drake what it's like to benefit from clever playlist placement. 

4. This is the kind of thing that needs to get into the hands of club DJs, too. That might require a couple of remixes for the dance floor.

5. If radio airplay is important to you, get a radio plugger. They know how to get to the right music directors. Work with both campus stations, public radio and commercial alternative/AAA radio. 

6. Make friends with as many bloggers as possible. Even the smallest want to think that they can discover The Next Big Thing. Every little bit of coverage helps.

7. And if budget allows it, try and get something up on YouTube. That's still the biggest source of music discovery in the known universe.

Glad to share this on my social networks. That should be good for about 100,000 people or so.

Say you wanna by KASTILLA

David Choi

It has a bit of a 90's throwback feel to it. Digging the track and melodies. Very catchy hook. Lyrics are very fitting to the genre as well. Overall, I enjoyed listening to this. Although I like the track personally, I think it could use a bit of an upgrade in the sounds in terms of what's out there right now. A good remix on this could take this song to the next level 100%. At around 2:20, I got slightly bored, but once again, that was because of the track being a bit stale.  Perhaps it also could have been that the melody sounded a bit repetitive without any sort of variation. Great job all in all, I think this could do very well with the right upgrade.

Kami Knake

Solid production and sexy R&B pop vocals. I like this song a lot! Interested in hearing more from her in the future.

Alan Cross

This very nice! Good production and performance as well as songwriting. The only quibble I have is with the end of the song. It just kinda...ends without a satisfying conclusion. To my ears, anyway.

Now some questions:

1. What are your career goals? Radio play? Recording? Licensing and syncs? Income from a publishing deal? All these paths need to be investigated.

2. Your social media strategy will be key. Make sure that you reply to every comment that may come in. Turn early fans into evangelists, especially the ones who contributed to this video. Get them to spread the word.

5. Make friends with as many bloggers as possible. Even the smallest want to think that they can discover The Next Big Thing. Every little bit of coverage helps.

6. Play live as much as possible. Nothing is better than having a group of strangers giving you real feedback in real time. But I have a feeling you knew that, right? 

7. If the budget allows it, get something up on YouTube, even if it's just a lyric video. YouTube is still the biggest source of music discovery, so you can't afford to ignore it.

I'll post this on my social networks. That's good for at least 100,000 people. Let's see if that gets you any new fans.
