Alongside quality information, DME offers a string of PR and consulting services aimed at promoting quality music. Being otherwise non-commercial, this site provides a convenient platform for exposure to the worldwide audience comprising both fans and industry professionals and including high-profile players in the field. Among its many visitors are such well-known figures as legendary producer Kim Fowley (see his comment here) and bassist Denny Ball (his comment is there), and that’s without mentioning all the famous interviewees who frequent these pages and DME’s popular followers on Twitter and Facebook. Given that the site is run by one person only and that every published piece is a form of advertising, these services aren’t free of charge and you may ask for a quote regarding your choice.
And here are some of the options. There are discounts on their combinations available.
A special page where an artist’s bio, press releases, photos as well as embedded videos and audio tracks can be posted. Here’s an example of such a page. Link to the page is posted on and FB including the latter’s relevant pages.

Press releases don’t usually work as a news item unless an artist is of some renown, and this site usually neither publish news on such musicians, nor copies press releases like other sites do.

An interview’s success depends on the questions, that’s why it’s important to have it handled by a professional.

With additional fee, it also can be posted on this site, with a link posted on TW and FB including the relevant pages.
With an overload of review material, there can be a few-months delay between the promo material’s reception and the actual review. For a fee, your review is published within three days of its arrival at the desk. Link to the review is posted on TW and FB including the latter’s relevant pages.
