TheMixCrew is comprised of 5 creative team members that saw #TheTwitterMixtape as an innovative idea that could gain exposure for independent musicians. They created #TheTwitterMixtape after noticing that there were tons of incredibly talented musicians on Twitter, that were releasing music to little, or no fanfare. Artistic Manifesto’s goal is to bring amazing music to listeners around the world, so working with TheMixCrew was a no-brainer.
Independent artists don’t have the benefit of a major label push or artist co-signs, so if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself. We asked artists to submit their best songs, instrumentals, poetry, and even visual art for the upcoming project. All the songs were listened to and voted upon with the best songs being selected, mastered, and sequenced. The artists that make the final track listing are identified by their Twitter usernames, so that fans of their song and other artists can reach out and give positive feedback. This keeps artists encouraged, and promotes more collaboration between musicians. We’ve seen followers increase, and fan bases grow as a result.
We have also interviewed the artists featured on #TheTwitterMixtape, so stay tuned to A.M. in the coming weeks to learn more about these talented musicians. The final product is a very musical and versatile project that proves that creativity still thrives amongst the monotony of music today. If you like what you hear, spread the word!
