We’re starting a series on WaTunes artists who are happy with getting their music into digital distribution (quickly! may I note) via WaTunes. First up is Matt “The Silver Movement” Kletter who recently just had his first single “Trouble In The Moshpit” released on ShockHound and iTunes fairly recently.
Paul Pajo: How did you first hear of WaTunes?
Matt Kletter: I was a former user of the site AudioOdyssey and I had become very frustrated with them. I needed a service that was quicker and easier to upload my music to iTunes. I was considering TuneCore but I saw how expensive it would have been to use them in the long run. I did a Google search and with a little time I managed to find WaTunes.
Paul Pajo: How would you describe the music that you make?
Matt Kletter: The music that I make started out with a lot of experimentation. Electronic music has grown on me over the past couple of years. I enjoy artists like Armin Van Buuren and DJ Tiesto and I knew that when I got into making music, I wanted to create songs in a style of music similar to theirs. I often find myself playing around in even basic programs such as GarageBand on my Mac (in which I create a majority of my tracks). I also have experience on programs like Adobe Audition, Logic Pro, Cubase and Pro Tools.
Paul Pajo: And Trouble In The Moshpit would be your first single?
Matt Kletter: Correct.
Paul Pajo: Can you describe your experience with WaTunes and what you think of its service in terms of releasing your first single?
Matt Kletter: To be totally honest with you when I clicked on the WaTunes.com link in Google for the very first time and saw the layout of the page I thought to myself,“Oh great another AudioOdyssey…”. However after uploading my first single and seeing it hit ShockHound within a few days I became thrilled and once it hit iTunes at the speed it did I was stunned.
Paul Pajo: How is the reception so far from your fans?
Matt Kletter: It’s incredible what iTunes can do to an artist and without WaTunes my first single would have gone no where. I find myself checking for iTunes daily for new reviews. It is so much fun. Although my fan base is quite local and small, I hope that with the power of WaTunes N.E my fanbase will grow.
Paul Pajo: Do you plan on releasing your single in other digital distribution platforms aside from iTunes? Amazon perhaps?
Matt Kletter: Eventually. For now I enjoy the benefits of iTunes and ShockHound.
Paul Pajo: Matt, anything you’d like to share to our WaTunes blog subscribers? Any “inside info” on what’s next with Matt Kletter?
Matt Kletter: I am planning on getting some DJs to remix my first 3 singles for a remix EP as well as a full length album to be released on iTunes Fall 2009 called The Voice Within
