Re:volt is a fast growing online music store specialising in Psy-trance music and culture, featuring high quality WAV, FLAC, AIFF and MP3 downloads for an ever growing variety of labels and artists
Here labels and artists can manage their own releases, set their own prices, for free even. This is all done through the label dashboard area where they have full control over all aspects of that release and instant access to reports for sales or downloads.
All releases can be shared to Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites. Each label and artist has their own page, this features their most popular releases and tracks and shows all their tunes available, simple and easy to find.
There is a PROPER Top download chart in place across the whole site, no more genre mistakes, or forced top 10. This chart will be reflective of what is really happening and wanted by the listener.
The charts are based on 1 sale of each track/release per person so they are very hard to fix, therefore much more a proper representation of actual trends.
All revenues are paid directly to labels and artist instantly at the point of sale, no delay, no accounting needed! So buyers know there support is going directly to the labels and artist rather than being diluted by some 3rd party who don’t care about anything other than taking their cut of others hard work!
It features an unrivalled search engine. Dj’s and listeners can pin down releases to BPM, Key, style, artists and even tags, this means instant results without hours of searching.
with Re:Volt you can download true audio gems, many at a fraction of what you’ll pay on larger corporate online retailers, which means Re:Volt is really worth a look at as a great alternative for music lovers in general looking for high quality music at fair prices and retaining integrity whilst supporting the music, labels and artists they love!
From the start moment of making music we were trying to find a way for people to hear it. I looked online, looked at digital distribution, and at that time 15 years ago, there was nothing! I tried to build a site just to host our music, spent weeks figuring out how to server that music in a download form, 15 years ago! My dreams were far outweighed by by the actual technology. Still I finally made a website, put our music on it and hoped. But it was ahead of it’s time, digital downloads and sites were not quite there yet.
I contacted with others that were making music, and they faced the same thing… it took 10 years to get to the point where what I wanted to do was viable, but by that point it was commercialised!
All the online distribution companies were creaming it, and if they weren’t it wasn’t quite what we needed.
I wanted what I originally wanted, a place where I could put our music, not be controlled, dictated to, undermined by bigger more prolific music, just a home for our vibe.
I came to realise that this was an issue all artists and labels face initially! And without someone understanding they are just designated to the next fodder pile.
I wanted to create something that we never had, and would have loved because so much good music gets swallowed up and lost in the jaws of online distribution and targets!
Hence I built this site, for labels, for artists for anyone that wants to keep control over their music, and release it with a platform that really cares about it. This is from the heart, and this is hoping that in some way it can make what is already awesome even better
