ProducerFactory have released an official statement after last weeks uproar.

ProducerFactory; a site designed to allow anyone to purchase a track and release it online as their own, along with attractive packages to boost everything from Soundcloud plays to Twitter followers has released a rather ambiguous official statement.

Without denying any real wrong doing, ProducerFactory have taken cover with artists as stating they are "...clearly on the side of the producer" by providing a service to those who cannot afford 'expensive studio equipment'.

On the flip they claim to help those that want to make extra revenue without having to jump through the difficult process of releasing things digitally.

As previously mentioned we were surprised and overwhelmed by the flood of attention ProducerFactory attracted caused by a few Forum entries. We never could have imagined ProducerFactory would create such hype within the Internet EDM (Electronic Dance Music) community. Our intention has always been to design a platform for the producer, the true artist, where we offer the chance for them to generate extra income to push their own career forwards. Every active producer knows how expensive the acquisition of studio equipment is, especially
when you are talking about the hardware. Producer Factory does not employ internal producers who deliver cheap work to be sold, instead we offer every talented producer the chance to acquire extra income and keep 100% of the royalties adjoined to their track. A service we offer all producers is our PF Network Publishing to allow income to be generated even after the production has been passed on. We will always support the producer and their rights. "ProducerFactory is clearly on the side of the Producer".
It seems that this statement would have been appropriate on-site when it launched and helped explain exactly what ProducerFactory is, or what it's reasoning was, versus a sort of, 'oh hey, we're good guys as well' - that and not offering various packages helping boost Soundcloud plays, Youtube views and Twitter followers (derp).

This feels more like a knee-jerk reaction to all the negative feedback the site has recently had and not such a 'clearing' of things.

The focal point of ProducerFactory is to allow the producer the chance to negatethe deficit the Digitalisation of music has caused. On top of this, the movement away from Vinyl Records has completely changed the structure of the music market. Where historically perhaps a few hundred records a day were introduced into the market, there are now thousands of tracks being uploaded to downloadshops ready to be sold daily. This results in the artist only reaching their goal of excelling the competition by providing a recognizable music style, consistency, diligence, staying power and certainly also accurate investment of the available capital.

Many talented producers have now understood the above-described philosophy we follow. This statement has been enforced by the delivery of top quality tracks by producers to ProducerFactory with the intention of being sold. True artists know that releasing one track is not enough to establish oneself in the music scene.

ProducerFactory also has the intention to widen the wonderful spectrum of music. This can be achieved by the introduction of excellent tracks into the scene that otherwise would be collecting dust on a talented producer's hard drive. One reason for a stagnant track is their Alias does not provide that exact style and hence the release of the track would harm their consistency mentioned earlier. Music is here to be heard and the more the merrier. The reaction to ProducerFactory also clarified that if a producer did extend their customer base to pass on their music through either online advertisement or word to mouth, that they would be shunned from the market in a similar manner.

All musicians deserve the income their work can generate, as time and effort along with talent has been effectively put to good use. What the owner of the music wishes to achieve with their composition is completely up to them. We will help them stay anonymous for their own protection.
