It's always hard sometimes to look for a platform to expand your musicalities; especially one that's concentrated on the local scene here in Malaysia. With Youtube being overloaded with videos of
cats dogs foxes *cough* interesting videos, it's rather difficult to make it as a platform to start off on a more serious note no?
Instead of Youtube, why not try heading down over to 2Crank instead?
2Crank is basically a music portal company that seeks out new talents; ie local bands and independent musicians to help them be recognized and discovered in the music industry.
They focus exclusively on music and the talents themselves by aggregating a full package on music video and album for them; allowing them to earn via the aggregations and rankings through social media platforms.
So if you're looking for a starting step to jump start your path into the local music scenes; well, 2Crank is here!
