Earlier today, YourEDM posted an article about Deorro’s “Yee,” which was previously given away as a free download back in March but was recently signed by Hardwell‘s Revealed imprint and released on Beatport today. YourEDM’s argument was that it was “a bit underhanded on the label’s part to change pricing for something that used to be available for free,” although this is a model that’s existed since Mad Decent started their Jeffree’s imprint, which debuts every release for free before later throwing them up on iTunes, something that happened with huge records like Baauer‘s “Harlem Shake” single and UZ‘s Trap Shit 6/9 EP. Going from $free.99 to $2.49 is a drastic jump, but this isn’t new at all. Deorro took to his Facebook page to explain his side of the story, explaining why he feels YourEDM was wrong. Here are his thoughts:

            It’s funny when an editor has such low confidence in what he’s publishing that he needs to get the last word relating to every negative comment…

            This is me expressing “low confidence” in what I’m publishing? If I wasn’t confident about something, I wouldn’t hit “publish.” That wouldn’t make any sense. This is me responding to a commenter who considered the article stupid… nothing more.

            you got it, Last Word Larry

    Reality check. Tracks sell 4 times better if released free first. All of this information is skewed. Also, free releases better promote an artist’s live performance career, which makes them the majority of their money. All of this crap about when it’s released and for how much makes no difference. The bottom line still gets higher if more people are sharing the music. Otherwise, Pretty Lights wouldn’t be touring.. he’d be making beats in his mother’s basement.
