digital music distribution explained
We have helped secure hundreds of feature spots on some of the biggest stores and in doing so have built some excellent relationships which you will receive the benefits of. We have integrated with an extensive list of digital service providers. We work with all partners directly and have built our own in-house delivery system for digital music distribution which ensures that there are no hidden costs in anything we do.
DDN also recognizes that working with niche outlets such as Stompy, Traxsource and Beatport is just as important as putting your music onto commercial services such as iTunes, Amazon or Spotify.
No Setup Fees or Hidden Charges
Here at DDN we provide transparency with our pricing which means no setup fees or hidden costs. We pride ourselves on consistently offering the most competitive commission rates with unprecedented levels of help, advice, service and features.
With that in mind comparing commission rates from one service to another is not always the best way to decide who you want your distribution partner to be. We recognize that you as a label may have specific requirements. You may want us handle distribution for all stores except 1 for example. We therefore urge you to get in touch and speak to one of our experienced Label Managers who will happily talk through your needs and build a tailored distribution offer for you.
We can send your royalties via PayPal or International Bank Transfer (IBAN). We pay all invoices received from our clients within 30 days.
Statements & Royalties
The stores notify us of your sales in all manner of ways so we take all of this information and provide it to you in one easy to read statement. We will send you a royalty statement at the end of every quarter for all of the royalties we have collected from the stores on your behalf. We clearly show you what we collected, what commission we have deducted and what we will be paying to you.
When you receive your quarterly statement from us you can send us an invoice and inform us where we should pay your royalties to.
Launching a new Record Label
So you have taken to the decision to launch a record label? DDN has successfully walked hundreds of labels from concept through to debut release and beyond. We will provide you with the help and advice you need to ensure your label portrays the perfect image. This is needed not only to ensure stores like Beatport will accept your music, but also to enhance your labels prospects of success in what is already a very competitive market.
Ready To Sign Up?
There are a couple of things you may need to consider before you can work with DDN for digital music distribution. The first and most important is if you are tied into a contract with an existing distributor. Please check your agreement with them to ensure that moving is possible. If you are still within contract with them it’s worth asking your distributor if you can move. Many times labels are let go early but there are instances when you will not be permitted to move.
By signing up with DDN your record label needs to pass a basic review by our team before we will approve your distribution account. Although this process is simple we do require that selection of tracks from your record label is available for us to preview online. Your music should be loaded into an audio player on your Website, SoundCloud, Facebook pages or already available on a store.
How Do I Sign Up?
If you like the sound of what DDN has to offer and would like to sign up to use our Distribution service, please complete our Sign Up Form and your registration will be sent to our team to review. You will receive an email which you must confirm in order to complete your application. When your application is processed (2 – 3 days) you will receive an email containing your contract, all information and steps on what to do next.
If at any point you have any questions regarding your sign up then please do not hesitate to get in touch.
