What is Reaktion?
Reaktion is a DJ promotion service for producers and record labels that need a helping hand in promoting their music to thousands of DJs to collect feedback, ratings and support.

What is your average response rate for an Ultimate Reaktion promo?
A solid release can expect 100-200 DJ feedbacks. 200 and above would be considered above average. We’re so confident in our service that is we do not hit 100 DJ feedbacks within 8 weeks of promotion, we’ll extend your promotion a further 2 or 4 weeks until we do. If by some miracle we still can’t hit 100 feedbacks, we will refund you IN FULL, no questions asked.
Who have you promoted releases for?

How long does a promotion last?
An Ultimate Reaktion runs for 8 weeks, Pro Reaktion for 6 weeks and Standard Reaktion for 2 weeks.
Who should order this service?
Our services are regularly ordered by artists, labels, managers, promoters, PR agencies and more.
I’m a producer/artist, shouldn’t the record label be doing this?
Unless you’re signed to the likes of Sony/Virgin (who we’ve also promoted releases with) the fact is that promotion should be done by everyone involved including the artists. If you’re an artist that just lets the record label take care of everything, chances are that your releases are not getting enough attention in the promotion department and unless you’re a superstar, you’ll likely not be welcomed back to the label again. Check for legal peace of mind for sure, but 99/100 times we’re all good to go here.
Is my payment safe and secure?
By preferring payments via Paypal – we’re able to give customers control of their payment. Paypal’s chargeback system protects buyers from scams and other untrustworthy services. We appreciate the nature of this business and that not every service on the market is honest, so we’ve made it easy to buyers to claim refunds for safety and confidence. You can read more about Paypal’s chargeback system below, but in short, if you’re not happy or feel let down, you can trigger a refund yourself.

We have serviced artists and labels on all levels and find that we have a powerful system that can give up and coming artists a much-needed boost. By having a long list of DJs that have supported your release moving forward can help to impress bigger and better prospects for labels, artists and press.
