Music streaming and discovery platform Audiomack has inked a partnership with independent music distributor DistroKid.
Audiomack has 17 million monthly active users and is popular in developing markets like the African continent.
Warner Music inked a licensing agreement with Audiomack for key African territories including Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa and Tanzania in November 2020, after becoming the first major label to sign a deal with the platform back in August 2019.
The new integration allows DistroKid members to connect to their Audiomack account and have their music distributed directly to their artist profile on Audiomack.
DistroKid, which ingests and processes more than 35,000 new tracks every day, says that approximately one-third of new music in the world is distributed by its platform and that more than 2 million artists rely on its platform.
The CMO and Co-Founder of Audiomack, David Ponte, said, “At Audiomack we have built a reputation as an ally to emerging music creators and superstars alike. DistroKid releases an enormous amount of new music from emerging artists, so we’re thrilled to be able to work with them to make it easier than ever for artists to be on Audiomack and utilize powerful free tools like our creator dashboard. With this deal, we are giving even more artists the chance to be successful and discover devoted new fans on Audiomack.”
On the other hand, DistroKid founder Philip Kaplan, declared, “Audiomack has become an influential platform for artists and music creators all over the world. We’re excited to make it super easy for the millions of artists who rely on DistroKid to seamlessly connect with Audiomack in a powerful & convenient way.’’
