new name for our promotional CD service. We look forward to working with some of
the greatest names in country music as well as the up and coming and established
independent acts from all over the world. Our target area is Europe and
Every client receives copies of the CD with their track on it, as well as gaining feedback on how their track is doing in terms of airplay and reaction; We provide our clients with the most professional marketing tool in Europe. As well as having new tracks from new acts on the CD, there are soundbites featuring some talking about their current song, which is particularly attractive to radio DJs for use on their shows. There are also extra features including interviews, videos, exclusive cuts not available anywhere else and other exciting features.
The Rush Released sleeve features full writer and publishing details, direct contacts of all acts, and timings with intro and ending information for DJs making it extremely user-friendly. We also provide DJs with a complete A-Z of every track on every Rush Release CD to help them locate music from past editions.
The deadline for each issue is the 18th of the previous month.

We are committed to an exceptional customer relations service. We aim to reply to all correspondence within 24 hours but if you do not receive a reply within one week, please re-send as it is likely your e mail will not have got through.

Internet is fantastic but not without its faults. We take customer relations seriously and try and keep our overseas clients in particular up to date with what is going on. Please feel free to call us or fax us if the internet is letting you down!
Being based in Europe means that we can offer the best possible coverage in this market. We do not cover the USA; and because we ship direct from Europe to Europe our mailing costs are cheaper and therefore our price is very competitive.
One of the reasons for our success is that we saturate the European market, giving our clients more potential airplay for a fraction of the cost of doing it themselves, as well as saving them time by doing all the administration for them and providing an unrivalled feedback service.

The Hotdisc Charts ...
The Hotdisc charts are compiled from DJs and industry professionals' ratings of songs currently being promoted on the Rush Released CD. They are not airplay charts, as airplay charts cannot work in Europe as there are no terrestrial country stations in this area. The hundreds of country shows are likely to play a particular song only twice at most in a three month period, therefore rendering airplay charts insignificant in Europe. It works well in America where there are plenty of non-stop country stations but it cannot work here.
The Hotdisc charts are therefore put together weekly using ratings supplied by DJs who give scores to every song on the last three months' editions of Rush Released. The scores are totalled up and averaged out per week to give an accurate guide to the songs which are being championed by the industry. The aim is to showcase the songs which the DJs and media people are pinpointing as top quality songs, which is a very useful exercise, particularly to all our clients and DJs as it is free of politics, hype and rigging and done on merit!
