Tip Of The Week:


From Listen Vision Recording Studios Account Manager Marcus K. Dowling: One of the most popular misconceptions of contemporary artists is that their success can be best derived from showcasing their skills over beats that have already proven successful for mainstream talents. However, when looking for the next rising star, many top industry executives will explain that having a fresh track created from scratch (a service Listen Vision offers) presents labels with the chance of not having to risk the financial burden of clearing familiar industry samples in order to release a top production. Stop by Listen Vision today in order to make this small, yet key addition to your potentially superstar recording portfolio!
