Hottwerk began in 2007 as a means for founder Tony Pontius to release the music created by himself and his friends. It has since grown to incorporate a range of services from label management to consultancy, specialising in music promotion to radio and club DJs. Using years of music industry experience and an extensive contact base, Hottwerk are experts in getting your music into the inboxes and record boxes of DJs in clubs and on radio shows throughout the world, right across the spectrum of electronic music.
Headliners, tastemakers, and residents, from the huge names to those who are just breaking through on the various underground scenes, receive and react on our club promos; our radio campaigns reach music teams, producers, DJs, and podcasters at all levels.
Our specifically targeted strategic campaigns ensure that when we send out your music, it gets heard by all the right DJs and international, national, and regional radio.
Whether you're taking your first tentative steps as an artist or are an established label (or anywhere in between), talk to us. Our competitively priced campaigns are tailored to your requirements and we treat each and every release that we work on with bespoke care.
Our weekly feedback reports are invaluable tools - labels and artists can use the reactions that we supply as ammunition when trying for placements/banners on download stores.
Reactions from tastemaker DJs and radio plays can be crucial in getting tracks signed to record labels, and can also form part of a wider profile-raising PR campaigns for producers, DJs. Vital chart placings by DJs on high profile sites such as Resident Advisor, Beatport, and Traxsource, and tracks being used on podcasts and guest mixes, are all more important than ever - and Hottwerk has an excellent track record in gaining these coveted accolades for our clients.
