Hello Product Hunt! My name is Maejor and I am a Grammy nominated producer, songwriter and recording artist. I have collaborated with artists such as Justin Bieber, Beyoncé, Will.I.Am, Andre 3000, Wiz Khalifa, J. Cole, Ne-Yo and more. I have produced music for films such as Disney's The Princess and The Frog and Sony's Think Like A Man. I recently partnered with Jingle Punks to create original music for film and television. Ask me anything!

Hey Maejor, I've been a huge fan of yours ever since Upside down! You are an incredible artist man!! Are you going to be in San Diego today? I'm trying to surprise my sister with tickets to see Justin perform (hopefully), and if you're down here for the concert, I would love to meet you. Thanks Maejor!

Hey Maejor, always interested in the variety of people's creative process. Can you talk about your process?
Maejor
Maejor@maejor · Maejor
@dleesta My creative process has NO specific routine or ritual. The music relies HEAVILY on intuition and feeling for each different creation :)

With a lot of the recent news around Spotify, Tidal, Soundcloud and the like, conversations around music and technology seem to be ridden with fear, antagonism or hopelessness. What about the music-tech intersection EXCITES you? How has technology changed your life as a producer, songwriter and recording artist for the better?
Maejor
Maejor@maejor · Maejor
@cheriehu42 Great Question! - The fact that literally anyone- anywhere around the world can submit their music to the GLOBAL DISTRIBUTION web known as the internet is extremely exciting imo. This power simply was not available before the rise of the internet and creates a world of possibilities and gives ur artists more control...than EVER BEFORE

Cherie Hu@cheriehu42 · music industry thinker/writer
@maejor Yes! More exposure + more control = the dynamic duo in music tech :) Thanks so much for answering!

Thanks so much for joining us, I would love to hear how do you utilise social media to promote your music and which platform has the highest conversion rates for you?
Maejor
Maejor@maejor · Maejor
@harrystebbings To be honest - I havent really mastered using social media to market my music. I find that if you spam people it doesnt make them want to check out your product. I'd rather focus on making the product as strong as it can be and just use social media to make people aware that its out. I could probably honestly do better in social media marketing. Going to work with Moe on that
