Reaktion is a highly-effective and powerful promotional service for Producers, Record Labels and music industry professionals who know and understand the value in tastemaker promotions and radio plugging. With over a decade of music industry experience in-house, you can be at ease that your music is as important to us as it is to you.

If you’re letting your music go under the radar – Reaktion can help to ensure that you are given the very best chance of success. Our targeted tastemaker promotions have been designed and tweaked over time to maximise impact.
We’ve made a series of upgrades to our platform and service for 2021 to ensure that all of our users get the very best possible service. These include:
– A refresh of contacts to ensure our database is 2021 ready
– Over 5,000 new breakthrough DJs from the last 6 months of 2020 added

– We listened to users who told us that too many promo emails were being sent, this has now been resolved to keep higher packages working at a superior level as they should rightly be
We offer a trident of services with various options which are explained below.
How To Pick A Package?
Start with one of the three Tastemaker DJ Promo options listed below as #01. If that is all you need, then you are ready to order and setup a promo. Should you wish to add a Media or Viral Campaign, then select an option from #02 and #03 to get your final package and price.
1000s of DJs Including The Below Get Their Promos From Reaktion
Reaktion Promos Have Been Monitored As Not Just Downloaded or Streamed - But Supported on Major Platforms.
Most DJ Promo services on the market provide a process to deliver promos to tastemaker DJs. What separates Reaktion from the competition is the global scanning that we do through the likes of WARM or 1001Tracklists to check that what we do actually works. Below is not just the usual ‘Downloaded for *******‘ or ‘Cool Track‘ – but a series of cold and hard spins that we have traced using industry leading scanning technology. By cross-referencing our promos with tracklists available online, we can see that our promos have really done their job. We don’t supply data on a per promo basis, but it is easy to monitor your releases through the likes of WARM and 1001Tracklists. Using a World Airplay Radio Monitor is recommended as although more and more recordings and shows appear online, the truth is that most DJ shows never make it onto the internet, which makes them hard to track without a dedicated monitor.
Below you can see a strong sample size of events, clubs, radio shows and stations that we have verified plays for releases that we’ve worked on. DJ feedback is always welcome, but with Reaktion as you can see below: there are clear supports on industry leading spots that garner millions of listeners every week.
If you do not already do so, we highly recommend using one of the below to monitor your releases.

#02 MEDIA CAMPAIGNS
A full professional promotion starts with the DJ Promo and then moves into phase two which is focus on generating buzz with the media and online platforms that command the attention of large audiences.
Our second category of promotion covers your release beyond focusing on DJs and towards the likes of:
- Spotify Playlists
- YouTube Channels
- Soundcloud Networks
Phase One in the Tastemaker DJ Promo department is all about getting DJs supporting your music, but once the radios and clubs are filled with the sound of your project, the next step is to start generating interest to add media credibility and build up a reputation and familiarity with the fans, the people that actually buy the music and attend the shows.
The secret is out, Spotify is the king of streamers and is vital for international success. We have a network of thousands of Spotify playlist curators and they come to us for new music to keep their playlists fresh and up to date with the best new music around (hopefully yours). We have use of a highly reliable Spotify Playlist Pitching & Placing platform which has enabled us to run high quality Spotify promotion for artists and labels both big and small. We pay a premium for agency account access to Playlister.Club, one of the world’s leading suppliers of Spotify Playlist Pitching services. Rest assured you’re in the very best hands when it comes to packaging a Spotify promo with your Reaktion promo.
From DJ Mag and MixMag, to We Rave You, DJ Times and Music Week – we pitch your release to magazines to give your project the very best chance of earning coverage in some of the most prestigious media outlets in the dance music world. We have close contacts with contributors at key magazines and can pitch your releases to them for feature support or reviews.
Over the last decade, the humble blogger has transformed from an online catalogue of music through to one of the most powerful sectors in the music industry. Charting on the likes of Hype Machine (blog aggregation) can be the difference between a release lost at sea and an international success. We have over 1000 blogs on our database and can tailor a targeted campaign to pitch your releases for support on these vital outlets.
Reaktion keeps a constantly evolving network of YouTube channels on record and pitches new music in their direction for feature support. Just a couple of approvals on key international channels can result in huge positive impacts for your release and promotion. We pitch your release to decision makers at music-centric YouTube channels and arrange for your release to be shared with their fanbases to expand your reach.
We have three Media Add-On packages available for £100 (Standard) and £250 (Pro) and £500 (Ultimate) which increase in intensity and power as the price rises.
#03 VIRAL CAMPAIGNS
The latest addition to our bow of services comes in the shape of social media influence campaigns. We have built a service that enables us to supply influencers and brands on Instagram and TikTok with your music for use in their videos. Viral music marketing has become one of the most powerful modern methods of getting music exposed to huge audiences.
We have access to multiple non-public platforms that are used as resources where influencers come to find new music to use in their posts and stories for a multitude of uses.
We have two options available for Viral Campaigns priced at £100 (Standard) and £200 (Pro) respectively.
BUILDING YOUR PACKAGE
Once you have read the details of each package, you can construct your custom service to fit your need and budget. Each promo must at least have a Tastemaker DJ Promo package and the Media or Viral campaigns are optional add-ons.
