Introducing: FastTrack! A modular record label platform
I’m proud to introduce a new venture of mine; FastTrack! This is a web collaboration hub for music artists and industry professionals, designed with the goal of furthering the careers and success rates of both parties in the highly saturated music industry.
The platform is structured as a two-sided marketplace which facilitates two modes of interaction; Feedback and Services. Our proprietary Feedback system allows industry professionals to give high-quality, structured and constructive criticism and encouragement to aspiring artists, helping them to improve their craft and cut through the noise. Our Services marketplace facilitates broad creative collaborations across the many areas required by a music release, streamlining artists’ workflows while enhancing output quality and providing freelance professionals with driven clients.
While we are currently undergoing development on this platform, including advanced collaboration features tailored to the music release process, you can keep up with our progress on my Current page, Ventures, or Contact me for more information!
