JustGoMusic.com is a new platform that offers powerful social media tools to DJs, producers, and label owners. The London-based website offers a whole suite of time-saving tools and features to help electronic music artists and labels grow their fanbases. Many of the tools are available for free.

JustGo Music was developed in close partnership with DJs, label owners, management companies and booking agents from electronic music over the last nine months. Many of the world’s leading DJs are already registered on the site.

JustGo Music offers five powerful tools for DJs, producers and label owners:

  • Social Stats. Track fan growth across Facebook, Twitter, Soundcloud and YouTube in one spot.
  • Facebook/Twitter Publisher. Write, schedule and post text, images and links to Twitter and Facebook at the same time, with analytics tools to understand fan engagement.
  • Soundcloud/YouTube/Mixcloud uploader. Publish tracks and mixes to Soundcloud, YouTube, and Mixcloud in one shot. JustGo Music’s tool auto-magically creates a playable YouTube video clip from an audio file and a cover image.
  • Competitions tool. Build a big downloadable database of fan email addresses by running competitions for fans.
  • Profile page. Automatically aggregates your social media content from Facebook, YouTube, Soundcloud, Instagram, Podcasts, and music from Beatport/iTunes onto one beautiful, simple-to-use profile page.
We were lucky enough to get an interview with Justin Golshir, Founder and CEO of JustGo Music to learn more about the the amazing new service.
Why did you feel the need to create the JustGo product?
JustGo Music started out as an idea in my bedroom almost two years ago. I was studying music production and sound design at a music college in London, during my nights and weekends to escape my boring corporate day job.
I wanted to pursue a DJ/producer career and I realized that there was a big challenge of how to market and promote yourself. It’s a critical part to building a career, but there were no genuinely useful tools out there to help you do it. Let’s face it, for most DJs, it’s generally a big pain in the ass to manage your social media and communication! There’s simply not enough time in the day.
So I decided to launch JustGo Music as a platform to help aspiring electronic music artists build a career.
What is the target market for this product. Is it main electronic artists?
For now, we’re focused 100% on electronic music because that’s what we know and love. Many of team came from successful electronic music brands and companies, like Ministry of Sound, Beatport, record promotion and DJ management companies. We love the scene and want to push electronic music culture forwards. One of our core objectives as a company is to build a platform that honours the true power of electronic music: connectivity.
 
Where are you based?
We’re based in Shoreditch London. Feel free to stop by our office on Friday afternoons for free beer and huge back to back DJ sessions (mixing quality not guaranteed).
How many employees do you have? 
We have 11 full time employees and a small team of interns.
Who are the main / core team members?
There’s myself and my Co-Founders Alexis Orssich and Terry Church. Alexis, our CTO, graduated from Cambridge and was formerly Technical Director at Timeout.com.
Terry was a former editor at DJ Magazine, was the Founding Editor of Beatportal, Beatport’s editorial platform (today known as Beatport News). He’s done PR for some of the biggest names in electronic music including Luciano, David Guetta, Dubfire, Eric Prydz, Visionquest. Sasha & Digweed and Space Ibiza.
When did you start your business?
We launched the early beta version of JustGo Music in July 2012 and have been slowly iterating the product ever since by working closely with the industry and listening to our users. We’re committed to building a product that genuinely helps artists.
How many users do you have?
We have several thousand artists and labels registered on the site now including big artists like Tiesto, Deadmau5, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia and Avicii as well as underground artists like Eats Everything, Seth Troxler and Richy Ahmed. We have many, many more fans on the site too, who use it every day to receive updates and discover music from their favourite DJs.
Plans for the future?
For now, we really just want to make our product better every day by listening to the needs and wants of our community. We hope to make the electronic music world stronger and better connected.
