From 'Universal Talents': a booking agency that contacts artists and offering some deal for agents and promising bookings.

 

I had quite a few mails from 'booking agency's' like that.

I guess most of us do at some point.

 

But when you google on them, you read most of them are just fake money greedy morrons....

 

So anyone also had a mail from Robert?

 

Would like to know if he's fake too.

Don't find much about him on google atm.

I'm surprised to read this. I wouldn't think that the majority of psychill artists have a manager or even a booking agent. Isn't it all arranged through the social media?

indeed, that is my impression too!

 

but still, why are people like 'Robert' doing this, just for scamming people?

I just got one of these mails from Jonathan Jaeger who advertises hype.co, the mail was very personalized but still, c'mon.. :)

These emails appear usually after when I upload new track to soundcloud.

uhu, there is a link with SC for sure!

when a set is posted you get one of those fake mails in your inbox.

 

maybe we can turn this tread into some knd of blacklist for all those mails and 'adverters'.

that way we can have some kind of sense on what scale this is hapening.

Hi guys, I just registered here on Psybient forum to share my experience, in short: Universal Talents is not a fake, is a useful platform.
 
Before register on UniversalTalents I had read your post about them, I was a little skeptical. I thought they were just one more fake agency or scam but finally I found a serious team, I have 2 whatsapp contact numbers, They reply within 24 h. professional and serious (They helped me to crop my pic profile) I have talked with an australian follower in Soundcloud and he told me he get some local gigs using this platform.
 
So after sign up I can tell you guys they are legit. No costs involved.

Brother, Adremus smeels like rubbish, there is money involved:

http://adremus.com/v...-promotion.html 

 

Adremus try to sell a promotion in the main page :o , Obviously is some kind of fraud.

 

But I dont understand why do you insist on assume Universtal Talents is a crap or scam if it is no cost involved. Universal Talents have a roster, is like a talent pool. Worldwide. Is like the Uber or Airbnb concept but for music bookings. For example If I m a event manager from Miami and I need a rapper for some event/gig  I use the searcher and I found some results like: 

 

http://universaltale...tist.php?stoppa

 

I think is just... one more music platform like others: Last.fm, Reverbnation, Bandcamp... There are platforms more focused on Promo or  gain visibility and others more focused on shedulle events, get gigs, connect artists...

 

My experience is good  for now. I use Universal Talents to find Singers to cooperate in some projects (For  a producer is hard to find orginal and no copyright acapellas)

sorry for my synical reply.

didn't mean to be so negative.

 

it's just that i'm (and many others) are very sceptical about agencies and so on.

i guess many producers/DJ's prefer 1-1 connection via social media.

 

lookz like Universal Talent really helped you out on some stuff, i'm glad it works out for you.
