As we welcome another week of 2021, we wanted to hop back into the spirit of resolutions! This week we are going to feature a couple of artists that hit the ground running and continue to make an impact. These are your resolutions in action!
Rocco is a writer, singer & producer whose sound blends the grit of A-Boogie and the pop sounds of Justin Beiber. This fresh new take on a genre has proven successful as Rocco begins his foray into streaming.
WELCOME BACK TO ANOTHER SEASON OF ARTIST 2 ARTIST! That's right, the team is back and better than ever. We have a jam packed year ahead of us, full of great guests, a new format & even more opportunities to be a part of the action!

2020 is a year that will go down in history. If you're reading this then you are also part of that history. I can't say that it's been a good year by most measures but it was a year nonetheless. Instead of celebrating 2020 I think that most people will be celebrating LEAVING 2020 in the dust.
As we get into the bulk of the holiday season, the team at Artist Republik wants to wish everyone a Happy Holiday! No matter where you are or what you celebrate, we hope that you and your families are safe and happy.
This week's Music Industry Monday is a little different but I hope that it's fun! This week I will be discussing some of the hot holiday music that bless our ears throughout December according to Spotify. Enjoy!
You've got a song, you're ready to distribute, & everything seems to be going as planned. But then you realize that you need to figure out WHEN to drop your song. Do you do it on a Friday? Monday? What is the BEST course of action when trying to determine when to release that music? You may have a lot of questions regarding this matter, but it's much simpler than you might think. This week, I am going to be walking you through how to drop your music.
For this week's Artist Showcase Series we are featuring Silhouette Death! After much thought and being a frontman/singer since 2006, Silhouette Death finally decided to start his official solo project.
Are you the artist that's been putting out music but not getting a good return in streams? With the recent saturation of the music market, it's become harder and harder for up and coming artists to get their music noticed & heard.
It's been a rollercoaster of a year. Especially for the music industry that was estimated to lose $10bn in live show sponsorships. Although the entire world is hurting from this pandemic, the music industry took a particularly hard toll.
You may think to yourself, "Wow, I wish that I had a web page that showed all of my links in one place." Well guess what, now there is & it's exclusively for Artist Republik artists. Welcome to ARTSTLNK.
In 2020, it's almost impossible to find a Billboard top song without multiple genre influences. I think that it is safe to say blending genres is the way of the future. What started as an outlet for young men and women in the Bronx has truly turned into a revolution of gigantic proportions.
Do you ever wonder how all of these big named artists get their song releases mentioned in music blogs? It all starts with music PR. Unfortunately, for independent artists getting PR is a hassle. You have to hire an agent who will then reach out to their contacts with the HOPES of getting your music written about.
This week's featured artist is Tommy Hill. Tommy Hill is a hip-hop artist from Houston, Texas that has grown immensely in his popularity in recent years. With over 50,000 monthly listeners on Spotify & 60,000 followers on Instagram it's no wonder why he's achieved our Artist Showcase Series spot.
This week's Music Industry Monday is a little different than what we're all used to. I had the opportunity to sit down and try out a new service called Kinekt, a mentorship & networking platform built for the EDM side of the industry. If you're into mentorship & growing as an Artist, keep reading, This one is for you.
Just like that, the month of September is already complete! How time flies...seriously. At the end of every month, we like to do a roundup of all the major news going on throughout the last few weeks. This is what we call the Republik Roundup for September. Enjoy, friends.
It is one of the greatest questions that plagues the minds of artists everywhere. Should you join a label or stay independent? This question has become more and more of a serious deliberation in recent years thanks to the rise of independent streaming & a big move away from the record label's control.
Scientists in Germany put on a concert to test some theories about the pandemic. The team from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg developed this test called Restart 19. They brought in a large group of test subjects to track the risks of infection by coronavirus at indoor events such as concerts.
School is officially back in session (depending on who you ask) and thanks to the current state of the world anyone who is living on campus are most likely confined to their rooms. This is prime-time for any aspiring DJ to get down and dirty with their DAWs.
When the world shut down back in March, we didn't really stop listening to music. Although it is interesting to note that during the first major week of self-quarantine, an analytics company named Alpha Data reported that streaming numbers in the US fell about 7.6%.

Getting that blue checkmark, aka getting verified on social media, is a crucial step for artists, brands, and businesses to build a successful social media presence. Yes, it looks cool, but it also tells others that first, you’re really you, and second, you have credibility.
