Music distribution is basically the process of getting the completed product (music) into the hands of end-users (public) via retail stores.
Although music can be made available to consumers by self-distributing physical products (CD, Vinyl), but traditional distribution usually goes through a supply chain.
Digital music distribution is the delivery of digital content or media to online music stores or platforms.
A Music distributor’s primary role is to ensure that the completed (packaged) product is available in music stores for purchase.
You get all of the following streaming analytics: number of streams, number of listeners, total listen time, stream origin (organic vs playlist), top locations and breakdown of listener demographics: female vs male, age range, the year when most of your fans were born.
You get all of the following microsite analytics: fan contacts, users, sessions, bounce rate, session length, visits across platforms, social media and pages, top locations and breakdown of listener demographics: female vs male, age range, the year when most of your fans were born.
Sales are reported when we receive them and may take a few months to arrive (Usually every quarter).
Our Music Distribution clients have their Music monetized on Spotify, iTunes & Apple Music, Youtube & Youtube Music, Tidal, Deezer, Amazon & Amazon Music, BoomPlay, Facebook & Instagram, Tiktok & Resso, Triller, Pandora, and every other platform on our list.
We payout royalties quarterly for partners that have reported. You get to retain 90%, we keep 10% of the total royalty generated. No minimum threshold, we pay you no matter how little you earn. We can send payments via Bank Transfer and Western Union.
Most of the time your music will appear within 48 - 72 hours. However, it is recommended that you plan your release date at least 14 days in advance to make sure that it will actually be available everywhere on your desired release date.
If you want your music to be eligible for pitching with the platforms (Spotify playlists, iTunes featured placement, etc), we need the final product uploaded and sent to our retailers at least 4 weeks in advance.
Please take note that during the November/December holidays there may be delays in delivery. So, take precautions!

The only exceptions are when they are visually irrelevant (being part of the background), they accomplish a relevant role (e.g., in a musical) or are justified in the metadata (for example, as the producer or the publisher).
