Sure, have your own site, have your own blog and do your own thing- whatever this thing is.

But unlike, some might say, we WANT to be used!

Look, every day, we have more and more people visiting Fast Track- and from around the world.

So, come here and USE US- but don’t abuse us.

That could hurt.

But, if part of the creative community, yes, USE US to tell everyone about your art whether it be music, photography, advertising, design- anything which pushes the creative envelope.

Maybe you’re a foodie? Maybe you’re a wannabe blogger or a bona fide blogger?

Maybe you are the greatest oboe player in the world who can play your instrument with your feet.

Whatever you might be, whatever you’re doing to contribute towards the creative world, come here and, all together now: USE US.

How?

Send us your work to info@fasttrack.hk and we’ll upload it for you on our new USE US page.

Where else?

CINDY GOMEZ GETS HOT FOR SUMMER!

 

Dear Friends,

I just released my first Spanish music video for “EL MUNDO” which is a latin pop summer song that was shot in Rhodes, Greece.  My goal is to reach 100,000 views and I’m hoping you will help me by forwarding this email to your friends and family, posting the link on social media and asking your friends to do the same. Once this goal is reached I will give away a second song from my album Fuego Fatal for free.

Thank you in advance for all your love and support!

Wishing you many blessings, light and love.

JAMASTER A IS GONNA PUT YOU IN A TRANCE!

He goes by the name of Jamaster A and he is, without any doubt, one of the hardest working guys in the Club scene- the global Club scene.

How signed to Gold Typhoon Music in China- and for this career move, we can only wish him the best of luck- this Hong Kong-born DJ has worked damn hard to bringing his music to Asia and Greater China, yes, but also to every other Club scene in the world.

We asked him to USE US to tell everyone what he has been up to and here it is.

We like and respect this guy for many reasons- but mainly for his passion and resistance to compromise anything to do with his music.

My show in China will be the country’s largest outdoor music festival and called “Big Love Music festival 2012″ which will attract over 100,000 people, including some of the world’s Top 100 DJs plus many Asian and International artists.

Also my new mandarin album will be released by Gold Typhoon Group (EMI China) in Asia and will featured many of Asia’s top artists like A-Mei, Lollipop F, Bi Bi Chou, David Wong, and a Japanese Girl group “Benylan”. Release date is planned for June 16th in Asia. My new Mandarin track “Sha La La” just got onto China’s  Billboard Chart at No.4 (All Cities) and is Number 1 with China’s QQ Music No.1 and at spot 25 on Taiwan’s KK Box TOP100.

So far I’ve released 9 singles and one album in Europe. My track ‘Bells Of Tiananmen” is one of the classic Trance anthems in Europe and was named one of the past decade’s Best 1000 Trance songs in the world. I also have had a hit with the track “Merry Christmas Mr.Lawrenece (Heart Of Asia)” and remixed by the World’s No.1 DJ Paul Oakenfold. Iin 2010. DJ Mag I was number 279 in the world rankings and the only Chinese DJ in the Top 100.

Below is my latest track, “Nanjing Express”, and released on the album of World No.1 DJs plus records by DJs Armin Van Buuren and DJ Marckus Schulz.

AMP10

amp10 is a marketing/PR firm whose focus is to help artists thrive on a global scale.

With agents in North America, South America,  Asia (mainland China), South East Asia, Europe, and South Africa, amp10 can truly provide marketing, PR, and social media promotion globally.

In part, the company’s focus is to assist non-established artists by working to put them on better stages with established artists and by seeking Corporate Partnerships rather than Sponsors to achieve this. Although amp10 is not a booking agency, our team has experience in tours, tour support, contracts, just about everything to do with bookings in general as well as having access to a full range of established performers to suit any event.

We are currently gearing up to build a ‘Creative Lab’ focusing on artists performance, fan responsibilities in buying music in an inclusive and non-exploitative manner as well as lending strong brand support to Corporate Partners. We are consistently brainstorming the rise and demise of the music industry and we like to think we’re extremely pro-active in our approach to improve the over-all state of the union in the music business.

We also take pride in telling our clients what they ‘need’ to hear, not what they ‘want’ to hear, with ethics being the focus of all we do. We also recognize that the best “PR strategy” needs to be followed-up with a client’s excellent quality product and performance, thereby preserving their and our reputation.

We strive to build and sustain brand support — incrementally changing fan behaviors via a steady stream of relevant and candid communication to both “media” and “fans”.

We realize that the entertainment industry is complicated and that it’s often years before an artist can become ‘known’ to the general public. We are very aware that the ‘shift’ in the music market has made it more difficult that it’s ever been for an artist to rise from being a rookie to a fully self-sufficient professional and we gear affordable promotion packages to what is needed to increase over-all awareness. We offer a variety of service packages that serve to maximize promotional potential while strengthening the artist-fan relationship. 

Our team of global agents work closely with one another, as well as the artists, to provide the best solutions to meet each client’s specific needs. We pitch to all facets of the music industry as well as general media in each territory in as many languages as possible in order to best deliver an artists message to a particular market. We welcome the input critic’s give us and take steps to adapt our strategies accordingly.

At the end of the day, we adhere to a Professional Code of Conduct that is designed to inspire ethical behavior and performance and maximum results for all involved. With experience spanning decades and with agents who have worked closely with industry veterans and up and coming artists alike, the expertise offered by amp10 is superb.
