So What is a Record Pool?

So, What is a Record Pool?
A Record Pool is an association of the industry's LEADING DJS.  Not just any DJ can be apart of a record pool.  S/he must be either a club DJ, mixshow radio DJ, radio personality, program director, music director, or highly requested mobile DJ.  Many Record Pools have any where from 5 to 100 DJs each.  (Many of today's top Record Pools have 10,000-20,000 DJs each.)  Record Pools started back in the days of vinyl when DJs spent hundreds of dollars per month finding & buying new music releases.  Hence, the birth of Record Pools was designed as an outlet to bridge the gap between the DJs and labels.  Record labels agreed to supply Record Pools with FREE new music releases in exchange for prompt feedback of their songs.  Cutting the costs, DJs pay a small monthly fee in order to maintain membership. 


What Do Record Pools Do?
All Record Pools have a Pool Director who maintains relationships with Record Labels (indie & major), and are responsible for supplying the new music these labels provide to the DJs in their Record Pool.  These DJs are obligated to play the new music in an attempt to "break the record."  As a member of the Record Pool, each DJ is also obligated to provide feedback of the song's response, as well as individual charts of all the songs they spin to the Pool Director.  The Pool Director then compiles the charts into one big chart, which represents how good each song is doing in their entire region.  These charts are not only sent to the record labels that submitted the music, but also to top industry trade magazines and commercial radio stations.  In-turn, commercial radio stations use these charts as a guide to help determine what songs should be added into their rotation.  So now you see how important Record Pools can be to breaking a new artist in the industry!  It can have a tremendous effect!


What if I Can't Afford to Supply Vinyl or CDs to Record Pool DJs?
With today's technology, Record Pool's are an even more cost-effective way to promote your music.  Only a few years ago, record labels would supply Record Pools with Vinyl and CD according to the DJs preference.  Now with DJ software programs like Serato, more and more DJs are starting to accept high broadcast quality MP3's.  This makes the cost to supplying DJs with music almost little to nothing!  Now that's as efficient as it gets
