Great news for music fans and fellow artists using Bandcamp, as you can now not only have an artist page, but also a fan pagem allowing fans and artists to show their support for the music that they like and have downloaded.
Good news: we’ve been working on exactly that (and then some). Today we’re giving fans the ability to showcase their Bandcamp music collections, follow their favorite artists, explore the music of like-minded fans, add items to a wishlist, and more. In developing these features, we’ve been guided by one overriding objective: grow revenue for artists while keeping the core Bandcamp experience as simple and clean as possible. (Read the full article on the Bandcamp blog).
We’ve already got some supporters of our music on Bandcamp and we really appreciate them for showing their support, we have also opened a fan account, well I have (Karen), and am building up a collection of the artists that I like and have purchased/downloaded their music.
Bandcamp artist pages gets fans, so please show your support
Fans can follow other fans, meaning they’ll be notified whenever those fans collect new music. (These notifications currently happen via a digest email, and we’ll add a feed option soon.) Fans can discover interesting people to follow in a few different ways. First, when viewing their own collection page, a fan will see a list of suggested fans. Second, when viewing any item on any collection page, a fan can see a list of who else bought that item and what they had to say about it, and then go exploring those fans’ collections (warning: this is seriously addictive). Third, when a fan buys something that they discovered via another fan’s collection, we send the original fan a congratulatory email, so they can a) strut around the rest of the day feeling chuffed and b) explore the full collection of the fan whose life they’ve just changed for the better. Finally, fans can discover one another via artists’ album and track pages. But that deserves a section of its own…
So please stop by Remergence on Bandcamp and show your support by becoming a fan of our music and even adding our albums/EPs to a wishlist for you to come back to later.
And if that doesn’t give you a massive reason to stop by then you can also grab some PROMOTION CODES to download Remergence albums

Hello blog readers and music fans, as you can see from the rather large image in the blog post this is something special for us, it’s all thanks to @OfficialCraigK, from out local radio station @PointFMRhyl, who does a show every Wednesday called “Welsh Wednesday” where he showcases bands from the North Wales coast.
Sometime back we were given our few minutes of fame on the show and had our track Starlight played by Craig, suffice to say our Twitter @RemBeatZ and our Official Facebook page had a nice little increase of fans after this
Today Craig posted up this rather amazing looking poster on Facebook and we just want to share it with you, it not only includes us, but it also includes some other amazing artists that Craig has played on his show.
So look them up and check them out, big thanks to Craig for this amazing poster and if you are a band on the North Wales coast then give Craig a shout (you can find his details in the poster), you never know you could be on his next Welsh Wednesday show

Where the heck does the time go, just when we thought we were in the middle of 2011, it suddenly puts its skates on and races towards 2012 and now we only have a short while before 2011 goes out of the door and say farewell to us all and welcomes in 2012.
So we thought we would have a little fun with an end of the year post and just bring you some little stats of our music and what has been popular, not only the tracks but the albums and EPs, so read on …

Top Remergence EPs/Singles In 2011

So a big thank you to everyone that has supported us since we started back in 1997 and a special big thanks to all those buying our music and telling friends about it across the globe, without you our music wouldn’t be spread to the far corners of the world, we salute you
2012 A Year In The Making
Those that have followed us for a while will know that our last album was released right back in 2008 and we have been frantically working on new material, but we’ve not really had anything that we wanted to release to our fans of a quality that they are used to, yes we have pushed out some freebie tracks, but nothing as good as we would like.
So that in mind, 2012 is going to be our year of setting down on the musical grindstone and get our backsides in gear and produce a new album, that hopefully you , our fans, will enjoy as much as you have our earlier work, so until then enjoy our work so far and please don;t forget to tell people where they can get hold of our albums, EPs, Singles and Tracks.
Thanks everyone and here’s to an amazing 2012 for you all
Karen & JJ
