As you know I am on my journey sharing my latest EP, "40" with hip hop junkies across the globe. I recently came across a great platform where indie hip hop and R&B artists can be heard. Clyde Reeves of Proof Radio discusses the vision for the internet station and opportunity for indie artists to showcase their latest projects. I look forward to having my single "40 Thieves" featured on the station soon! Thanks, Clyde.
Clyde Reeves: What my plans are right now is to build the support for Proof Radio. And to build trust in the indie community. So on Proof Radio, we play hip hop and R&B music. We like to play main stream music mixed in with indie artists. The reason for that is to keep listeners engaged. Initially, we tried to play only indie music and it just didn’t work out. This way is working pretty good so far. We are streaming on 20 platforms at the moment. I’m adding to that list just about every week. Our mobile app releases this week for Apple / Android/ blackberry devices. We’re small right now, but growing. So, we are just trying to get our name out there and build trust.
We don’t charge the artist anything at all. If the track they submit is approved it just gets added into the rotation and it won’t be removed unless the artist or their label requests it. That’s why there’s an approval process. In the near future, I will start adding programs to the station mostly people that want to help the indie artist community. Either they can go live on the air, or if they have a podcast, we can just add it to the schedule.
Proof Radio was built to introduce new sound, whether it’s a indie artist or a artist that’s signed to a label that’s really good but, not getting radio play. I got tired of listening to the same stuff over and over on the radio stations, lol! So, I have big goals and dreams for Proof Radio. Looking to networking and build.
