    How would you get their email, I thought it is hidden.
    Anyway the most obvious answers are spam their PM or follow them and like their tracks. Users are notified about you liking/following them in their user dashboard as well as email message. You will need alot of accounts for this cause SD blocks accs for that kind of activity.

    What I get all the day on my real SD profile are people pretending to be a hot girl (relevant picture) following me or liking tracks. Looks like ewhoring (not allowed to talk about it on BHW). Some try and submit some comment like "nice work" etc and some ask to review their tracks or whatnot. Two or three times I was asked if I am after being supported as a musician and it's been spam as well cause tracks on my profile aren't mine (just rare music never seen online that is not copyrighted).

    Most of them are already blocked when I see them.

    2 things i could think of:
    1. Email blasting, sounds like you have enough data to send emails with pretty targeted adds
    2. Setup a music selling website and collect money on refferals.

    Of course theres always the whole option of creating a new website that people in that niche would be interesred in and drive traffic to it using their info

    As someone with a bit of knowledge in this industry, you won't get far with a good portion of producers. They are generally tech savvy enough to not fall for crap like spam. You need to offer them something they can use to help their brand and help them grow. Personally, I would offer publicity related services. A lot of producers lack any kind of merch, set up shop somewhere like amazon, hire a lawyer to write a contract, and offer to sell merch with their logos on it, paying them royalties for each sale. You have a way to get information from profiles, so scrape each producers following and email blast THEM with the merch products. If you want a more long term list of followers, set up download gates for the producers. Build a list of active users who follow them and sell them stuff.

    Send them emails about discounted Music products digital or real? use affiliate links.. some may buy?.. there are tons of ways but you would be better off building up a relaltionship first for long term sales instead of spamming them.. try thinking outside the box there are tons of ways.. good luck

    I would monitize that with a music afflicate for downloads.....

    I would Group all users that are in there music genre, and send emails with the affricate deal ,for there music type....

    You might find a afflicate for all music , they sign up you get paid for the signing....

    Warning use a offsure vps....
    You can be very deep blackhat , download torrent album for the type music there into , charge them for the download or get them to fill in a survay for the album free, get paid via survay afflicate...
