Hi, I created this thread after seeing a user's attempt to discredit this legitimate agency. apparently it is Moonmelt that for some disagreement with this agency is trying to damage the reputation of this company. I have been part of Kangaroo for months and I can ensure that they are legit. this "boy" has been publishing shit for 2 days with the only intention of annoying.

This is a fake, scam agency. All of the accounts defending Kangaroo Bookings are fake and made by the same person. Proof here:

Moonmelt again! Nice try, but no one believes you. I found this about you:

After a small search, it seems clear what happens. Apparently the creator of this thread works in a company called Gloo Studios: gloostudios.com

They contact artists to make videos and charge them for it. The subject in question is responsible for animating videos and making music, with their corresponding commission. I think this guy, Alexander is trying to discredit Kangaroo Bookings by simply stealing customers. Just my opinion.

Don't let these scammers fool you. Because I've uncovered their scam they are trying to personally attack me by looking me up on Facebook and posting my information. None of these accounts are connected to any artists profile and have been created the same day that they first posted on one of these threads. Stay away from these guys, feel free to send me a message if you have doubts.
Due to the numerous emails I receive daily about my membership in this agency, I finally decided to write this post and clarify the doubts and why not... stop me spamming my mail. Just kidding! :8

Well, my story starts 5 months ago when I joined this agency. A friend told me about this agency, for which he had recently worked. I sent an email to this agency and Anthony answered. From the beginning the agency offered me many advantages.

The question that most people ask me is if I have to pay to get a performance. The answer is depends, I for example enter under rate that included web mail, artist profile and legal team. I also had the option to enter for free, without profile or mail or without profile until the first performance apart from the 10% commission for each event achieved by them.

You also ask me about the number of bookings. At the moment I have obtained 3 shows, not a great number of performances, but the salary has been very generous. Few but very well paid.

In general I am happy with them and it is always good to have agents working for you and to be able to share your music, which is what it is about 😃
This is in no way a scam, I talked to Anthony this morning and since I've been with Kangaroo I have not had any problems. If one day I have it, I'll be the first to enter here and explain what it's all about. But I do not understand those accusations on your part, which apparently have not even worked there.

Sorry I copied the comment from Ernest de Jong Booker, I just wanted to quote him, I do not know how this is done in this forum.
This is what I tried to explain, I'm not the only one who thinks the same. Be carefull with Moonmelt and their scam agency. http://www.gloostudios.com/contact/

This guy and this shitty company should be spammed, seems he talked bad about other agencies over internet just to sell more.

This is what I tried to quote:
As I said in the other thread: any scam, I worked with Anthony lot of years, we have common people in our circle of friends and acquaintances. Seem you are the only guy in all internet who is saying that.

Futhermore all your accounts has been created one day ago... reddit and soundcloudcommunity, you have lot of interest in to speak negatively about them.

So, be carefull about this!
and not only this thread, lot of people talk pestilences about this user called Moonmelt:

I researched a little and how is it possible that with 600 followers you have 66k plays? and just in one song, I think the only fake here are you. LOL

I think moonmelt is a troll, Im signed up with Kangaroo and any trouble

My theory is that some people are trying to relate them to other bad agencies. It is a question of discrediting other agents to hoard the market. Dunno.

Hello everyone, I have also been contacted by this agency. The first thing I did was a research. I have searched on different web pages. soundcloud and reddit mainly.

It is curious that you accuse a person just for misusing a word. I do not speak english either. I would like to see how would write in romanian an english person, sure he dont talk perfect ;)

You said "they look like new accounts, a month ago" and yours? you guys just have a previous comment! https://www.reddit.com/user/Moonmelt

I am not accusing anyone, I just try to be neutral and approach this objectively, because I am also interested in joining the agency.

Furthermore I visited your soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/moonmelt
following: 830
followers: 601

and you guys have a track with 66.300 plays? how is it possible? you talked about: "It's easy enough to pay on facebook and boost your posts and make fake accounts." this is what you did guys? because I didnt know it was possible. But seems it is.
Could you explain this? don't get me wrong, just wantto clarify it. But you are accusing a person and it seems that you are doing exactly the same. I do not think it's objective or fair either.
I joined kangaroo yesterday and I had no problems. I entered for free, I do not see the scam nowhere.

There are definitely other agencies interested in discrediting Kangaroo, nothing happens, we already know all who they are and how this works.

Hi Fergie. I've heard about Kangaroo Bookings I'm interested in hearing the music of people who have recently joined Kangaroo, but I can't find a SoundCloud account for you. Is it under another name? I can't find accounts for Simbad Baykara or Marcello Putureanu or Amadeo Fierri. There's an Ernest de Jong with no music posted: https://soundcloud.com/ernest-de-jong Is this the Ernest de Jong signed to Kangaroo bookings?
Are you not allowed to have SoundCloud accounts once you sign to Kangaroo? Is the music exclusive to them?
Thanks
I have seen the same message Josh. The fact is that I have been with this agency for 3 months and looking for information about them I have seen that there are opinions like this. If I agree, that particular user has been opening forums and talking badly about them. so I decided to look for information for myself.

There are few bad comments, most are positive, I imagine this happens in every company in the world. Have you seen the comments of Mc Donalds? usually people who have had a bad experience. There are always disgruntled customers who make trouble.

It's true what you say, only that moonmelt speaks badly about them. I have even found blogs:

I found two yahoo answers:

https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20170825144100AAzWBNy

These topics are over 2 months old, it rejects the theory that it was created the same day.
Besides that I do not feel cheated, since I have not had to pay anything to enter this agency. Imagine my impression when searching about kangaroo bookings and finding such forums. Hallucinatory! How is it going to be a scam if I have not paid anything? I have heard that there is a modality of income with promotions, web page, own mail, but that is different to say that it is a scam for having a service call it premium for example.
I hope you understood me. My English is not very good 😉
I just registered here to let the you know my experience. Last week a friend told me about this agency, I had never heard from kangaroo before. So I sent them an application to offer my services as an artist. They replied me few hours later by email. Today I have registered with them and I have not paid anything because I have not wanted web profile nor personal email address. I am still using my gmail. No doubt they had heard my music for very precise comments regarding the song.
I found an Anthony's post which I think is interesting, I share it:

Hi, well let me introduce myself, my name is Anthony Laurosse, I am the creator of the agency: Kangaroo Bookings. Recently one of my artists has informed me of the existence of this post. I have registered here only to explain your doubts and questions. Forgive me for my language, I am French and I speak English within my means.
As I said above: I and some colleagues founded the agency. We have been working since 2015 in a small local bookings business in France, Paris. Recently (1 month ago) we decided to create an international company of bookings with the minimum possible of intermediaries (like UBER, from client to agent, Im sure you know what I mean).
I will try to answer all the questions, especially Antonio, I remember you well. I said that your sound was very similar to deadmau5 in the "equalization" and especially in the kick the of the drum sample, you know "that kind of progressive". Sorry for the confusion, it is logical you do Techno house, salsa style. Search a song called: BRAZIL from deadmau5 and listen to its intro:It's that kind of Techno drummer, I copy and paste the mail for you all to see if you do not mind, simply I want to clarify: "I liked your style, and the general sound equalization, remember me deadmau5 that kind of progressive".
Concerning to The_skittish´s comment about the logo: It is said that our logo looks like "planet hell" when "planet hell" is inspired by the logo of the mission apollo XVIII, please give it a look here: http://kangaroobookings.com/images/logo/apollo18b.png
There is no doubt that "planet hell" took it from there. Now that you know that they took it from there, will you also say that they are not legit? Please, it's just a logo guys. Our web designer was also inspired by the apollo mission. That´s all. Anyway I would like to clarify that the current logo is only an approximation of what we have in mind. In fact the webmaster was wrong selecting the logo because the logo that I finally chose was this: http://kangaroobookings.com/images/logo/logo27.png
As you can see we had more proposals designed:

By the way, which one do you like the most?
On the subject of bail: we offer two ways to enter: 1)free of charge or 2)under a bond that includes: profile creation, personal mail artist kind of: artist@kangaroobooking.com and obtaining an event in the next six months. The deposit is returned at any time the artist wants to recover his bond. For us it is a way of equalizing commitment, a temporary bond, nothing more. You have to know that creating a profile costs about 25 minutes, we have to create the email address and keep your profile updated too, it's time. If I invest time and human resources in you I need to know that I will recover my money, time is money after all. We automate everything we can, but there are parts of the business that are not automated. This leads to the next point.
On the subject of similar messages: we use some templates to make easy and fast the process, for example: I always ask the age, the money that you want to charge, your availability ... I do not write every time the same, I take advantage of something that I always use. I read absolutely all the messages and I answer them, you can verify it and from now I take the opportunity to put my email here: contact@kangaroobookings.com you will see as I answer to all of you. Real answers, no robot, come on guys ...
Concerning the artists' acceptance: all our artists have been informed of their inclusion in our roster, you can check it also. In fact they come from a platform of artists from a founding partner and personal friend.
I think thats all, else I take this opportunity to encourage you to read our policies here: www.kangaroobookings.com/faq
Im so sorry to read it, this is very bad for our reputation, this is a project that we really belive in these comments do not help at all, they give a tremendously bad image of our cause. In fact I was very happy with the acceptance of the people in our facebook, you can see the reviews, the people are quite happy, we have about 1200 eyes looking there. Anyway... we are at your entire disposal.
I dont care if thet use mailing strategies sincerelly, I just want bookings and little of tips and advices, I dont have anything to loose, I registered for free.
At the moment it seems that there are some people who speak very badly of them and others who speak very well. It is clear that there are many interests within the world of music. This is a shark pool. People stumble into them for better jobs. The record companies also, the artists continue with their war. What undoubtedly is undeniable is that kangaroo bookings are causing buzzing, and that is always good. This is free promo.
In the end the only thing that matters is the price. If they get cheap artists for their discotheques, I think it's a good strategy.
I still think that this agency and in general the new agencies that use the p2p business model are the future. Maybe not the best, and miss the magic of the old bookers and agents... but the times are changing. Adapt or die!
I've been with Robert for over a year, the owner of the agency Kangaroo booking contacted initially for artists. I can assure you, that I have not had any problems with them. What's more, I also know that some friends wanted to go from UT to kangaroo bookings and they could not because they only picked up the best ones there. With this I say everything.
I also do not understand people who want everything for nothing. This blog explains how the agency works: http://electromusichunter.blogspot.com/2017/08/kangaroo-bookings-international-booking.html

There are two ways of belonging to the agency. Free or Premium, I spoke with Robert and his affiliate wants to reach an agreement to give more free services, I do not know if the mail will be included or not, I imagine it will be a question of getting success internationally. When bigger is a company, more free services can give.
