Scapetune - Anyone a member ?

Postby Marbury » Tue Sep 11, 2018 11:44 pm

Has anyone heard of or signed up to Scapetune ? I was contacted by a guy who seems to be a big noise in the European film soundtrack circles and asked if I would like to join his new site Scapetune. 50/50 split royalties which seems fair. However, after uploading a good amount of tracks, some exclusive I no longer had access to the site as it was being re-designed. Since then (early spring) there has been no access to the site for me and the announced re-launch never happened in June. I have had patchy email response from the CEO telling me I will be contacted when it is available but I now get a strange feeling about the whole thing.

Here is the site which has been upall along, the latter site where I was able to access and upload my tracks has since disappeared.

Just wondering if anyone else has had my experience.

Never heard of them. But the website would make me run a mile tbh.

And it’s a really bad name.

Sniffing at the site apart, the guy who runs it has some credentials though https://www.georgexoulogis.com/

I guess that's another pointer that it's not taken off. :-/

Agreed - I hadn't heard of Scapetune until Marbury posted, but I was impressed by how professional the website looked.

Mind you , I hadn't heard of Bandlab either until a few days ago - it's so easy to get left behind nowadays ;)

I'm sticking with Bandcamp for the time being :mrgreen:

I wanted to remove this thread but was advised by the moderator to update the outcome. I have since been in contact with Scapetune and the misunderstanding has been resolved beautifully so I can say with confidence that after a delay in the site going live everything is back on track :D

Nice to hear, always good to have some other options in the marketplace. :)

Excellent - thanks for the update Marbury!

And once again, I was very impressed by how professional the Scapetune web site looked, and am intrigued to find out more 8-)

Personally I really hate the scroll down web sites with a fixed image behind. But they seem to be all the rage these days.

I'm a total newbie to this music business lark but I'd love to hear how the OP got on with this site, to see if it is a viable alternative to bandcamp.

Has it successfully generated any royalties? Do you get good clear comms from the site admins? Do they promote 'worldwide' as the website seems to suggest?

Any feedback eagerly anticipated :D

+1 on the scroll down comment, but unfortunately this is where modern web design is at, don't worry, they'll be back to panels and buttons before you know it

Thanks
