My friends at New World Interactive are hosting a free weekend of Insurgency: Sandstorm! So, I'm going to give away a Steam code to one lucky person who likes and retweets this. You can also get it 50% off right now on Steam. (Not sponsored, just bored.)


You can also check out the interview I did on Indie United!

Hello all!


I recently relaunched soundAPE, my music label, and publishing company. Our goal is to tackle the issue of DMCA Takedown Notices and copyright-strikes on Twitch, Facebook Gaming, YouTube, and other similar platforms. We release royalty-free music that doesn't sound stock. We offer Spotify Playlists to streamers and direct-licensing options to content creators.


We were recently approached for an exciting opportunity that I can't go into detail about here. I'm currently looking for artists who would like me to represent their music for licensing and future opportunities like the one we were presented with.


Here's the deal:

  • You can sell your music on Bandcamp, Apple Music, and more without having to pay me royalties.
  • You keep your rights, including your copyright and writer's share.
  • 50/50 from direct-licensing fees (commercial license sales from Bandcamp, advertisements, video games, and other placements)
  • Free promotion (I pay for marketing and ads)
  • Optional - I publish your music on Spotify & Pandora Radio for playlist placements created by me.
  • Optional - I publish your music on YouTube (playlist placement like this - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSRiMTO0ZDL7wZsbAsvp97EAP-CW7S-gZ)


You can visit https://soundape.net to get an idea of who we are.


You MUST have a professional sound. Your credits list won't impress me -- your production and compositional skills will.


Let me know if you have any questions! Feel free to send your demo reel to https://johnmontoya.wetransfer.com (PREFERRED) or email contact@soundape.net


Thank you!


John

My music is in a VICE TV documentary about Zombie Nation's "Kernkraft 400”, one of my favorite dance tunes of all time. This is an incredible honor for me. In fact, if you watch the TV version, you'll also learn about Darude's Sandstorm! My cue starts at 08:10! :D

Hey there!


It’s Bandcamp Friday! That means 100% of revenue from music sales goes directly to me. Even though I release majority of my music for free on here, I still offer my music online for purchase. Bandcamp: https://jmontoya.bandcamp.com/


Right now, I’m trying to save up a minimum of $250 to help make a kid’s holiday the best it can be during the pandemic. At the time of writing, we are at $125/$250! We’re almost there! You can also donate directly by buying the little one gifts via his Mom’s Amazon wishlist: https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/2FVP00AZ6GV1T (if you need any help with donations, feel free to DM me).


Thank you for your support!


John
