Porcelain Raft New Single is out. Mixed and Mastered by Manolo Remiddi

Porcelain Raft to Release New Album Next Month (May 15 2020).
Today his new single “Come Rain” is out and with an out of space video created by Rä Di Martino.

“The world stopped. I managed to come back to Italy the day before the airports were on lockdown. As I stepped in Rome I felt frightened, it’s surreal to see Rome silent. You can feel how tense people are. On the other side, you can tell there’s a lot of solidarity. Helping the neighbour with little things for instance. We have been confined in our houses and exposed to big numbers and huge-scale operations. This is why I decided to share these songs now. What a better time to … Read the rest

Music on Lockdown – what is Emanate doing?

1) Self Uploads.

On March 23 we performed a major upgrade to our systems which pushed the Self Upload capability to production. It is currently in a closed beta test group but will go public within two weeks.

2) Increased Rates

To help artists experiencing loss of income from show cancellations, we are increasing the per-second rate by 50% when self-uploads go public, meaning an average 5-minute long song will earn around 9c per full stream.

3) Free Trial Extension

The free trial period for new artists testing out Emanate will be extended by 60 days, so no artist will be required to pay a subscription fee in this time.

4) Cash Out

Cash-out will open at the end of … Read the rest
