Since being one of the first digital distributors in 2003 means we have negotiated the best direct deals with stores and streaming services, comparable to the likes of independent societies such as Merlin. Along with a 100% in-house delivery system, that is unique to digital distributors and aggregators, this means we are not reliant on external companies for our distribution service.
Some of the major platforms we work with
Services for Labels and artists
There are more and more ways to play music either by streaming or purchasing to own in various formats. Many more people can now be reached who perhaps prior to the digital format could not buy your music (perhaps due to no record shop nearby, record shops not ordering what was wanted by someone, etc), or access it unless played on the radio. Online marketing can promote releases far and wide into territories, which labels could never afford to spend money breaking into before.
With the emergence and importance of streaming and 'the playlist’, we have developed systems to effectively monitor playlist activity for our labels and artists, leading to efficient reporting of playlist inclusion and pitching to playlist curators, ranging from the bedroom enthusiasts to the big label or radio curated lists and Spotify in-house lists. Our PR team have drawn upon their contacts and experience from Radio and Press pitching, alongside our own in house analytical systems, to create a flawless process that leads to regular success and the building of an artist or labels profile on streaming services. As with all this, it is not only down to us, but with our experience and tools we can offer advice and tips on what you can do yourselves alongside our own work to build your label and brand across streaming platforms.
