    Up until now my main focus has been working on achieving radio ready sounding remixes of popular songs, but not ultra edm remixes, i tend to do best on the songs written or produced by my main influences. Now i feel they're a lot better than my last batch considering response from industry friends and discovered one has a remix contest going on for $28k in cash in prizes+studio time with zedd, theres over 500 submissions so far... Im confused on what are things i could be doing when im not working on a remix using soundcloud and youtube. My goal isnt too be a world famous dj or dj at all. Im trying to show people what it might sound like if i produced it to get work as a producer with a songwriter or other types of collaborations making originals. I dont have a personal facebook to get the first few followers and only a few of my friends on twitter. i have no been on twitter too long. Im open to black hat if its right for what i want to do, i just dont want any fake views. It doesnt look that good to people i want to target. if they're local and they've never heard of me it will be questionable.

    I'm afraid the only answer I can give you for now is exposure. Get more views, get more social. Sure, you can "boost" with some fake views / listen on soundcloud/youtube/whatever to gain social proof.

    Promote on EDM forums, just let people know your works. I'm assuming your songs have been already mastered and ready to be shown.

    On a personal note, I know how it feels dancing your own songs in clubs. That was more than 10 years ago. There wasn't social networks as we know today. The trick? Being social. IRC, p2p file sharing chats, forums... Seems like a lot of things have changed, but not. We have always been social, but now we got even more options.

    Do more remix contests (i.e: http://www.remixcomps.com/ ). Do more song review exchange. And then, split test. When you get your personal "winner", think about promoting it. Get in touch with other producers, dj's, or even spam on facebook groups. Do whatever you need to get natural views, because you don't know who will be the next listener.

    Good luck :)

    thanks for the reply! i do participate on that website when a damn good or highly potential song comes along where my sound will work. Part of what i do is not put out the remixes that dont best make me look good. Most of what comes thru remix comps isnt that good and the last time i participated in one the "judges" never heard my track(out of a mere 50 participants) and had picked a friend across the country within an hour of the contest closing. It was odd to me that according to facebook the winner and the judges/prdoucers of the song were facebook friends for a few years already... But like i said no fake views because id rather have it all real and knowing that its the truth. I dont want to start new business relationships based on a lie
