my son creates a kind of minimal techno/house tracks and loads them up to soundcloud. We are both unexperienced in the field of publishing music - let alone trying to earn money on it.
He received an offer from a label mojoheadz records (I found their homepage also in the internet). They see some potential in his demos and wrote him that he could get a professional mastering vor USD 55 and they would send a contract - sharing effort and profits in the future 50:50. Now I feel quite irritated and have some questions:
- It is somehow strange to not see the real ccontract before paying.
- Are 55 bucks a fair price for a pro mastering of a track?
- Does anyone know the mentioned label and their business practices?
- What alternatives are there - just in case?
My questions might be naive - well - yes- concerning this type of business I am/we are really naive.
Can anyone help?
