PMP (Producers Making Paper) Series - The DJ Frank E Story
"...In the meantime, I was trying to find a way to break into the industry as a producer. I tried everything... I mean EVERYTHING. Looking from the outside in, it's hard to imagine what the industry is really like. To me it was like a secret society, and none of my friends knew much about it. I wasted so much time and energy barking up the wrong trees. One day, my girlfriend at the time was reading through a copy of the new Scratch Magazine (RIP)
(Magazine, not girlfriend). She found an ad for PMP Worldwide and suggested that I spend my last $450 ($275) on a subscription. I checked out the site and immediately signed up - it was the best thing I had found by far. 2 months later I got a call from Mike Caren at Atlantic Records after submitting for a Juvenile track dump. He was starting to build his publishing company at the time. He tested me for a few months, and we sent ideas back and forth. Shortly after, I gave him a song for Flo Rida's first album using a sample he'd sent me, and the rest of the story starts at the beginning of my discography.
Production Market Place Quotable - Team Green Production
"PMP has been one of our biggest tools of getting our music heard by the right people. Not only major artist and brands but also independent artist who are serious about their craft. PMP was instrumental in us getting records placed with 50 Cent, Havoc, and most recently Boaz and Mac Miller of Rostrum. When I asked how they heard our music, they all said they found us through PMP.
Not only is PMP a good tool for connecting with majors artists and labels, there's plenty of independent artists who have budgets as well. There's been several times where independents will pay more for a record than what a major is offering.
Overall, PMP is and has been the best place to showcase my music catalog online in a professional matter. You get what you put in when it comes to PMP. If you're a producer and take your craft serious and want to as well, PMP is a great place for that."
