Here we have a powerful, straight-talking music video that perfectly matches the mood of the song. The use of a static camera and extras singing with fast-moving shots communicates a widespread aggression that people often feel inside, but reveals a more powerful message when presented en masse.

Another option for struggling songwriters is a private advance company. These companies offer advances to songwriters who have a threshold amount of annual royalty income with the promise of returning their rights when the advance is repaid. However, this type of loan typically comes with high interest rates and stiff penalties for non-payment. This can lead to many financial problems in the future and saddle the songwriter with debt for many years.

One of the first things you need to decide before purchasing a microphone for podcasting is what type of mic you should get: USB or XLR. In most cases, USB microphones have comparable sound quality to their XLR counterparts. The difference is in the way they capture sound.

When we were just getting started, we worked with American artists like the Flashbulb and French hip-hop producer Kacem Wapalek. We also reissued the debut album by French house producer Bob Sinclar, Paradise, released in 1995 on Yellow Productions, and we teamed-up with labels such as Tru Thoughts and Einmusika Recordings.
