Projekt-Top-10

Dec 23

This is what our year looked like ☉

From Projekt’s Sam Rosenthal: The year draws to a close. Projekt’s webstore shipped out 2813 CDs, while our Bandcamp store sold 4735 album downloads. Yes! There are still people buying music. Projekt and all of the artists I work with appreciate your purchases! Our music also is played on streaming sites, but it takes an average of 279 plays on Spotify to bring in a buck; those of you who purchase things (or contribute to our crowdfunding campaigns) are the people who make it possible for us to continue to create.

A big THANKS for supporting Projekt’s artists with your investment in our work!!!

2016 was busy for Projekt, with a number of releases in the electronic/ambient genres and a few in the goth/darkwave genres. Here are two lists for you; I find it interesting to see how the top-10 differs between physical and digital sales.
