I tend to use them for slightly different jobs. Soundcloud for sharing work in progress, getting comments and building a bit of a network. Bandcamp is just for completed releases. This obviously means that the Bandcamp site gets much less traffic, but when I do release something it's going on a 'clean' site that is just about listening and buying - there's no confusion of purpose or messy feeds.

However I caveat this with the fact that my days of taking this stuff seriously are long behind me, I know you have a very different cat to skin. :)

Exactly my approach, with the added advantage that while you get people following you on Soundcloud, a few of them inevitably end up being click-bait (I now rarely follow back anyone who has not posted any music themselves for instance, and definitely not if their avatar is wearing a bikini ;)).

Meanwhile, on Bandcamp the only people who tend to follow you are those who actively want to hear about your new releases, while those who appear as supporters are those who have actually purchased some of your music 8-)

You know, I've never used it like that before. I have just signed up for a fan account though. :)

I went an unorthodox path for my website and use a producer based website provider for my music and blog. It’s been the best out of the services as far as the cost is concerned and the features as well as the connected community give a ton of value to the platform. Currently I’m using Beatstars. The website is:

Nice.

It was a minute into your showreel before we heard any music. Are you sure that's wise?

Just tried the link to Andrea Rocca's web site, and his showreel has wonderful music starting from the very first second:

I love it all 8-)

Are you talking about something different?
