Who are LastSound?
LastSound is a website solely for producers. We provide
a means for producers and beatmakers to have their music
heard, via our beats section. We also provide a collection
of resources and articles for producers, along with other
features to come soon. Meanwhile, the two directories
produce free, music producer training.
The LastSound team is composed of three partners, who
make up the core of the company, John, Sach and Chris.
It also includes a mixture of outside producers and industry
figures. We are part of a large industry contingent that
will be making its presence felt on the web and on this
site in the near future. On a more general note, the business
originally started out as a music production company in
early 2004 - as you can see we are now turning our attention
away from the studio and onto the web.
What do you have planned for
A hell of a lot! Firstly watch for a huge expansion of
the beats section. We will continue to add the content
that has been submitted to us over the next few months.
After that, we are looking to offer a hosting package
for producers, instrumentalists and composers - expect
that to roll out some time in July.
Following that huge addition, we will start adding community
sections to the pages, along with various other features
that we are currently considering. Finally, and as if
that wasn't enough, our sister sites will be entering
the fray in Summer 2005 - all in the industry, and all
offering various services and features that are of interest
to our visitors. In sum total, we have a great deal tied
up in this site, expect it to show in the content this
How can I submit my beats?
The easiest and most direct route would be to e-mail our
Production head, Sach at Sach@lastsound.com.
He will consider all submissions, and with a bit of luck
get back to you :) Be sure to include information such
as your price for the tracks, whether they feature samples,
your producer name, etc
What can you offer artists?
Because we only recruit a small percentage of the tracks
that we listen to, we make you look good in very little
time. Instead of trawling through dozens of sites, you
simply go to the relevant section, and click away. You
can be sure that we have spent hours labouring away so
that you can do this so swiftly and still come away with
a great composition for your vocals. Before us, this was
not easily doable, with thousands of beat-makers to choose
Secondly, our A`n`R team is composed of members who have
in some cases literally dozens of years experience as
producers, engineers and song-writers. This means the
tracks are picked by people who know the market place.
Thirdly, you are also dealing with a company, and not
just an individual. This means a commitment to customer
service you would not otherwise get with a self-employed
What can you offer producers?
We offer producers a medium for them to sell their beats
on the web. With literally thousands of beatmakers out
there, all with high quality tracks it becomes difficult
to differentiate yourself from the competition. Add to
that the fact that a producer is supposed to juggle his
production and beat-making skills with the task of promotion,
and it is unsurprising that many find it difficult.
All we ever do is promote this site and all the tracks
on it - we leave the beat-making to you. In return we
take a cut of 25% of any sales made from the site. This
allows you to focus on what you do, while thousands of
potential buyers browse your tracks. To submit tracks,
Meanwhile, the resources on the site offer free music
production training for producers, so we really are a
How can I buy beats here?
Buying beats at LastSound is quite easy. First browse
through our selection here, and
find the track that you like. Decide whether you want
to own the track entirely so no-one else can use it (exclusive
rights), or rather just want to use the track for a demo
etc (non-exclusive). Add the track to your shopping basket,
and once you have decided on all the tracks you like,
proceed to the `view basket` page shown. Follow the instructions
presented by PayPal, and once you have made your payment,
a link to the track will be e-mailed to you automatically
(for non-exclusive beats).If you want to make a purchase
of an exclusive beat, please contact one of our team.
