POOL Deluxe
Catch our fully loaded ride.

Like it or not, every gig you do is advertisement for your next gig. You may be working a wedding this week, but who's to say there's won't be someone there planning a Church social or Quinceañera or backyard barbecue next week who might beat feet to book you after hearing a little Christian Top 40, Latin Pop or Country? You never know. But you can be prepared -- easier and more affordably than you might think.

How many gigs have you missed this year because you didn't have
the tunes to book out of the box?

There's a new way to receive all the music you need, one that combines the speed of the Internet with the Clean Edits, Intro Edits, Quick Edits, and media-rich programming Promo Only is famous for. And you can experience it today.

One click and our exclusive POOL Player app does it all: download; organize; check out the latest charts; search by title, artist, or BPM; create, export and submit playlists; even customize your ID3 tags – POOL makes it easy.

Pioneer DDJ-ERGO

Childish Gambino
Nerd-hop. Respect.

He had us at Childish Gambino, a stage name derived from Wu-Tang Clan's online rapper-name generator. (For the record, our rapper name is Tuff Worlock. Respect) We're referring to Donald Glover, better known for his roles as Troy Barnes on NBC comedy series Community.

As a rapper, Glover has released three albums and a pair of mixtapes, all of them distributed free via the 'net. Camp, released Nov. 15, is his first commercial release and fully displays his uncanny ability to blend references as diverse as Drake, Invader Zim, Casey Anthony and The Human Centipede (from "Bonfire," the album's lead single).

If you're new to Childish Gambino, do yourself a favor and punch up Wikipedia and Urban Dictionary as you listen to Camp. You'll need those reference guides to get the full impact of Glover's well-informed and often gut-busting flow. Listen deeper and you'll hear masterful tales of the trials and tribulations of high school, the feeling of never being "hard" enough or "black" enough, the many people who have called him gay, and his fondness for Asian women. Think Kanye circa The College Dropout: not the media-baiting megalomaniac we know today, but the insecure guy from middle-class Georgia who sounded grateful just to be alive.

Ultimately it's Glover's honesty that keeps things interesting. As Childish Gambino he owns his nerdiness and wears his insecurities like a badge of honor, describing himself best with a line from "Bonfire": "Rap's stepfather - yeah, you hate me, but you will respect."

Pick up Childish Gambino's newest release, "Heartbeat," on Mainstream Radio, Urban Radio and POOL.

Slow Roast Records

Glassnote Records
Shattering Records

Theirs would be an enviable track record for a major label -- a meteoric ascent when you consider that indie label Glassnote Records has only just blown out five birthday candles.

Founded in 2007 by industry icon Daniel Glass (Billy Idol, Wilson Phillips, Jon Secada, Warren Zevon, The Pretenders, Eryka Badu, Blur, Better Than Ezra), Glassnote abides by simple rules: Don't hire the same old record people; build buzz with small media; and trust your own bands' scouting reports (Glassnote's Grammy-nominated Mumford & Sons was signed at the suggestion of label-mates The Temper Trap).

The CliffNotes since go a little something like this: In 2009, Glassnote released French indie rock band Phoenix's fourth album, Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, which picked up the Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album in 2010. In February 2011, Mumford & Sons' Sigh No More became the label's highest charting album, peaking at #2. That same month, Mumford & Sons' single, "The Cave," became the label's first release to enter Billboard's Top 40, peaking at #27. In 2011, the label released its first hip-hop album, Camp, by Childish Gambino, the music project of actor/comedian Donald Glover.

By April 2011 Rolling Stone had anointed Glassnote Records Best Indie Label.

In an industry beset by declining sales, Glassnote Records is unique: It is the only new label breaking big bands in a big way, leading the pack of indie acts (among them Mumford & Sons) who scored better than half of this year's Grammy nominations (273 out of 543 nods went to indie artists according to indie trade group A2IM).
