Content Opportunities:

1. Single Format Performance

Single Format Performance videos invite artists to perform in a controlled setting with the intent of sharing a long-form audio mix. This format can also be found on Facebook and TikTok.

Tactics to Implement:

  • Visual Effects: These videos tend to be static in nature focusing on the artist performing. Creators will use effects like text on screen to keep viewers engaged. Glitterbox uses pre-recorded videos of people dancing to encourage viewers to move.
  • Video Length: These videos average at about 1 hour and 5 minutes in length. 
  • Video Introductions: Radio Intense cuts straight into the set with no spoken introduction. Clean text is used on the screen to introduce the artist.

Content Opportunities:

  • Compared to Germany, there are no major publishers hosting artists to perform in a consistent controlled setting in Spain. Simply, there are many different creators giving space for creators to perform with no consistency.
  • Build a space similar to how Gallery Sessions has for hip-hop artists in Spain.



2. Multi-Person Makina DJ Set

Multi-Person DJ Sets invite 2 or more artists to perform on the same deck at any given time. Artists may all be collaborating at once or moving throughout the sets together over the course of the stream.

Tactics to Implement:

  • Purpose: Leverage the unexpected with multi-person DJ sets that elevate artists to collaborate with each other on a dynamic scale. 
  • Video Length: These videos average at about 2 hours in length.
  • Genre-specific: These videos focus on the genre of Makina but can be repurposed to invite artists of different electronic genres to collaborate together and create something unique and new.

Content Opportunities:

  • These videos can easily extend reach with the option to include participating artist names in the title of the videos, allowing them to rank whenever someone looks up a particular artist.
  • Produce a set that compliments the passage of people in and out of the studio and use multiple angles to highlight the chaos of people on the decks.



3. Makina Home Sessions

Makina Home Sessions follow artists into their homes as they perform Makina-focused sets in a long-form video.

Tactics to Implement:

  • Video Length: These videos average at about 1 hour in length.
  • Visual Elements: These videos are set up to be static, focusing only on one slightly lowered angle of the DJ and deck. Videos can take place during the day or the night, giving two different visual vibes.

Content Opportunities:

  • Create different home sessions with artists ranging across different genres. Give viewers insight into their homes and how their style reflects their music.
  • Another series could be created for more short-form content focusing only on challenging artists to complete a complicated mix between two songs on the spot.
  • Makina originated in Spain and has similar tones to UK hardcore. Whiskey brand Ballantines has invested into the genre (and electronic scene in Spain) by sponsoring events and breaking down the electronic scene history here.



4. Industry Tips

Industry Tip videos focus on setting fellow artists up for success in the digital economy. While varying from music production, this category complements existing music content for musicians looking to get online.

Tactics to Implement:

  • Facetime: These videos always feature the creator speaking directly to the camera. 
  • Video Length: These videos average at about 8 minutes in length.
  • Introductions: Videos lead with the creator stating the purpose within 10 seconds before cutting to a dedicated channel introduction clip.

Content Opportunities:

  • Leverage heart-to-heart content as a unique way to engage artists in the digital space. Instead of asking artists for industry tutorials, produce short segments where they highlight technology that got them started or their top recommendations for developing their music and style.
