Our Interview Approach

We believe in the democratization of media and allow our community base to both influence the guest selection for our interviews as well as send in questions for future interviews.  Anyone can recommend interview guests (obviously we also screen for quality) and send in their own questions. Many of our users become interview scouts and help us find new, exciting guests.

We have an innovative interview format that consists of  "regular" interview questions, our crowdsourced community questions and (optional) Ask Me Anything sessions with your audience. 99% of our interviews are done in text form using online forms instead of emails.

We offer a 100% free service created by artists for artists. Traxx24 was founded by artists frustrated by the lack of support for smaller artists, djs and labels and as a reaction to the tactics used by big businesses to exploit the scene.

Our interviews and features are published both on our own platform and promoted on all our social media channels. Our blog currently reaches 50.000 unique visitors per month. That´s over half a milion music fanatics from all over the world reading our articles and interviews every year.

Sounds FANTASTIC? - What´s the Catch?

We offer many cool free services & goodies to grow our site and build up a knowledge base for the digital music community.

In that sense the "catch" is that we offer free interviews to learn more about the problems and challenges you're facing. We then use the data we are gathering through the community interview to build a knowledge base for around it. Everyone that helps us, gets free access to the knowledge base.
Anyone can help us simply by inviting others - we think it´s a very fair appraoch.

But why focus on the small artist?

The right question should be this one: Why do most media outlets focus on the big artists instead of the smaller ones? Here is why: Money. The cold truth: Big media outlets focus on the hyped artists to use THEIR popularity to sell ads. And once the hype is gone, poof - so is the media coverage. We simply don´t believe in the winner takes it all mentality most other blogs and media outlets work by.  


 Rap Genius 


To quote Jay-Z: Rap mags try and use my black ass So advertisers can give 'em more cash for ads Fuckers, I don't know what you take me as Or understand the intelligence that Jay Z has I'm from rags to riches, niggas, I ain't dumb I got 99 problems,
but a bitch ain't one – hit me!

Our philosophy is sustainability. And we hope to achieve it by supporting the vibrant, creative, independent and underground culture. 

That´s why we focus on the smaller and mid-sized artists, djs and everyone in the scene that makes it happen.  This is why our approach is 100% community-driven.  

Cost- & Time-efficiency

Another reason why we are able to offer free interviews and promotions is because we´re using a very cost and time efficient process for the interviews. By using text interviews with "self-service" online forms and many automated processes we try to optimize our processes as best as we can.

How does Traxx24 ?make money?

While we do run a tight ship, there are costs that we need to cover.
This is why we rely on two revenue streams:

1. Voluntary/Optional Donations  (aka the paypal cookie jar here: paypal.me/traxx24)

2. Organizing free webinars and online classes with expert guests where we offer optional premium services. Anyone can join it for free and those who chose to upgrade gets a more personal experience & more content.  Also note: We only offer those services only to people who explictly showed interest in them with non-intrusive advertisements.
3. Sponsors & Advertising- From time to we might get a sponsor or advertisers on board. 

Basically we rely on a small minority of our community to help us keep the whole thing alive.

Not interested in helping with the community?  Just want to use the interview for your own promotion? No problem! In the end we just want to help you get out there!

Note: All of our interviews & artist promotion services are currently 100% free!
