Q The Beat Boy/ All Rise Artist Nation

Who are you and what do you do?

I am Q The Beat Boy, one of two owners of All Rise Productions. I am also one of many producers in the All Rise camp, a writer, engineer, artist, promoter & more. So not only do we make a wide range of music, we have taken the time to learn our way around the inter-web-ama-bob lol. Haze Blazemore (the other owner) Charlie England (the C.E.O.) and myself have managed to put together a pretty healthy network of supporters/followers and have proven ways to put music in front of them. More importantly, we built it all around artist support, offering help to other people along the way as well. If you make good music, let's work. In the mean time we will be making music of our own. Here a playlist with some of what's been released this year, check it out sometime along with links to our site, services, more playlists, a few of my artist profiles, the company artist profiles and more. Hope to see you around. Much Love!

From your perspective: What is a typical mistake that artists make?

Waiting. STOP WAITING ALL THE TIME!!! If you don't have time find someone to help, but my gosh get to it…The problem is people always want to wait until they get better or get in a better position as if the world is going to wait for that as well. But it wont. And no offense because I have heard some pretty solid arguments but I stand on this, start putting your work out. Besides, as a fan it is interesting to be able to hear and see your growth. Take it from me, I am very inconsistent haha smh, and growing the way we have over the last year I can only imagine if we went from just over 1k on one account to a network worth over 150k+ easy, where would we be now if we had a track dropping every week with some kind of video to accompany it? I'm just saying… Don't wait to follow your dream, start now because there is something you can be doing now so you don't have to do it later I'm sure…

What makes you different from others in the field and what should readers who are interested in your services do next?

We actually care! No, like, really… We are a small but growing community of people who really want to help others succeed. We occasionally give out free reposts to huge amounts of followers for free, we regularly repost to accounts for our followers and more. We offer a range of services to allow you to shop in one place for most of your needs including free stuff, reactor videos, mixing, mastering, distribution, production, sounds, artist support & promotion, one time & subscription based services, interviews such as this one and more. We actively try to teach people what we know about how we got in the position we are in and what we are doing to grow from there. We will even work with people directly if they don't understand something to help get them going. We are your one stop shop for all things music and more! If you want to grow, we want to help.

What was the biggest mistake you made when you started making music and what would be the number one tip you could give to a newcomer musician?

I sat around wasting time. I spent years simply playing with music, making songs and losing them, beats that only got free styled too. Knowing what I know now, I can see I would be a pretty known name by now rather than trying to become know, and that's not even considering the company itself. Haze and I have know each other since we were teens i had been making music most of my life while he pretty much started early teens. It is no reason it took us this long to finally decide to take steps for the world to hear what we can do and it has paid off every step of the way.

How do you get gigs? Can you share any tips?

Network, while I haven't done a gig in a long time, all it really took was a few hours making phone calls to start. Once you finally get in somewhere, document it in every way you can find. You an build a portfolio that may help you get into other places. Speak with reputable promoters. Study articles from bands who cant seem to stop getting gigs. Check out the DIY musicians blog and look for their stuff on the subject, great content there.

Do you have good promotion tips for other musicians?

Well, I will try to list some stuff, there is a lot.
1. Stop thinking everyone is "FAKE" There are things to look for that will help you figure it out, some of which is what you probably think already. But the point is you are probably missing reach by simply making judgments. Do your research. That guy offering to get you reposted to 100k or some crazy number could be legit, I am and i can do it on demand so how many more people are out there like me if I managed to get in that position?
2.Take a chance, send your work to some of these people if the deal looks good in black and white. Especially if the deal only pertains to that one song. You can make more and keep trucking while whatever is happening with that one track is happening. Get yourself spread around.
3. Done saturate your network with the same ish all the time. Keep it fresh. keep new stuff in front of your viewers.
4. Get a team!!!!! This is one of the best things you can do, build a team of people who are willing to spend a few mins a day helping spread the word about what you are working on right now. While you can always try, it is hard to do all of this on your own. if it means you have to pay people, do it.

Do you have insights on how to grow your audience on soundcloud that you want to share with our audience?

Engage, don't repost too often, get spotlight, support others, invest. Also try to release something at least once a month.

How do you personally discover new music?

Nowadays, I actually source music through the huge community of artists looking for support. Checking out their profiles, the people they follow and such leads to some really nice finds.


[gravityforms action=”conditional” merge_tag=”Yes” condition=”is” value=”Yes”]
Once you discovered new music, do you tell others about the new music/artist you discovered? If yes, how exactly?

“I utilize all methods available, selectively. Depending on what it is, how good it is, it may get a like, added to a playlist, reposted, downloaded and added to our station, blasted out to our networks, simply depends on what it makes me feel when I hear it.

What is your number one tip to improve your music production or songwriting skills?

Practice, Practice, Practice ? Lmao. No, while it is true you also need to study. There are millions of tips on how to mix, master, edit and so on but not all songs, sounds or tracks are the same. It will take a wide range of these tips to get your tracks done. The way you mixed the kick today may sound horrible on your next track, or it may not. But knowing what to do in response is key. Compare your work to industry music, preferably your favorite industry artist. The more you figure out about replicating the industry sound, the better off you will be when you try to create your own sound. There are some standards that will probably not change, ever, unless we find a better delivery method for HQ Music. Learn them!

What is your best tip for those who struggle with finishing their tracks?

Get out of your head. You need to create a workflow and stick to it no matter what. You also need to have a "get out plan" which is simply knowing when to stop if you need to. Sometimes we will try to force ourselves to work on stuff when all kinds of things could be wrong or preventing us from getting the job done. If you need to stop and rest or clear your mind, do it. If you tend to get intoxicated but end up stuck some how, stop getting intoxicated. Just pay attention to whats going on and respond accordingly. There is nothing wrong with coming back to your work later if you have to. Also, dont put pressure on yourself if you dont need to, stop creating impossible deadlines, just make the ish!

We meet again in one year. What has changed?

Not that I know anything about this, but it is like the drug game. If I haven't doubled up by this time next year Im not doing something right. That goes for almost all areas. We took our network from a couple thousand to over 100k in about 6 months, if we cant see 200k or 300k by this time next year we are totally slacking! A year is a long time, should be able to do a lot if we stay consistent.
