    If you can get a good hook put on the beat. That helps it sell tremendously. Whether the buyer wants the hook or not, it showcases the beat.

    I am more into Electronic music. I would suggest that anyone serious about making money from music start creating Electronic beats.

    You do not have to stop hip-hop/rap, but build up that Electronic catalog. It is easier to make and is growing at a rapid pace.

    Many of the songs that I have licensed are Electronic instrumentals.
    Electo is garbage, so when this fad dies off you'll be jumping to the next one? Making music you have no feeling for will just produce more garbage. You can't force yourself to make something you hate. Good luck with that.

    Why fight? I used to be just like some of you. A hardcore hip hop head and I was very ignorant and said I will produce no other genre, ever!

    Here's what happened... I changed and now not only am I trying to produce every genre, I'm trying to CREATE MY OWN GENRE. Trying out new genres got me fans of all kinds and demographics, it even landed me a placement with one of New York's most famous indie artists not once, but TWICE! You guys think producing other genres is a waste of time? think again. I understand this isn't for everybody, but don't open your mouths until you open your minds.

    Tip: Make different genres, but add elements of your style to it... like Hip Hop for example.

    I'm done.

    All my highest sellers have been southern for years lol. But anything with a hook is usually way more popular than stuff without em, much easier for the artist.

    tyga, e40, yg, drake(he's experimenting), new boyz(making a slight come back), j stalin, the usual bay area bunch(messy marv, the jacka, etc.), and a bunch more that I can't think of right now. Hyphy/ratchet/bay area beats are going to start popping up out of everywhere from what I can tell. My beats don't really have the typical hyphy sound though; I try to mix it up a bit.

    Hard to say. I know that as a boom bap/hip hop producer times are hard (not following trends), but I'm still working with well known and respected indies. Carve your niche and exploit it.

    trap beats are easily made, and sold at a high price
    they sell the most these days
    as a old school/boom bap beatmaker i can say that very little people are interested in that anymore
