Digital Distribution Services For Producers

At Beat Brokerz, our goal is to put your music in as many artists hands as possible to give you the best chance for sales and placements. However, we would never stoop so low as to pimp your music out and call it "digital distribution".

We feel it's our duty to warn you about certain "digital distribution" pitfalls for producers.

We've had producers ask us over recent months about putting music on streaming platforms such as Spotify, Last.fm, Rhapsody, Slacker, etc. In fact, we know of at least one beat selling website that has regularly boasted that they will distribute your music to these platforms for you. Unfortunately for producers, it does more harm than good.

It may seem like a good idea, with the promise of royalty kick backs for streams and plays, but...

What's The Cost?

Firstly, your music will be streamed in high quality without any voice tags or any other protection from artists who would just rather record the stream than pay you to download it. And in return you get a few pennies.

The problem is apparent. These platforms were designed for music listeners. But as a producer, your audience is not music listeners. Your audience is music MAKERS. Therefore, your earning potential on these platforms is severely crippled from the start. And then you factor in that shady artists can get your beats without tags for free, and the amount of sales that you will lose because of that... and you have one bad recipe.

We definitely believe that you should distribute your music, but it should be distributed to the correct audience and in the correct manner to protect your interests.
