How easy is it to release music through LabelWorx?
Signing great music is the hard part, releasing it through LabelWorx is simple:
- Upload the music to our system, along with things like metadata and artwork.
- Decide how, when and where the music should be released.
- We then set up your profile on DSPs where necessary, deliver your music to stores in line with your release strategy, and provide support and guidance to make sure the release is a success.
Which stores do you deliver to?
Your music will be available on the platforms that your fans use, anywhere in the world.
From Beatport, Spotify and Apple Music, to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram and TikTok - our distribution network covers the globe and is expanding constantly with new stores and DSPs added regularly at no extra cost.
Do you work with labels outside the UK?
Of course! We’ve got team members on almost every continent, each with a deep understanding of local nuances and how to make sure your music makes an impact across Europe, North and South America, Australia, South Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe.
Do you need to start a label to work with LabelWorx?
Short answer: no.
Long answer: no, but if you release without a label your music won’t be available on specialist download stores like Beatport and Traxsource, only streaming platforms like Apple Music, Spotify and Deezer.
Whatever your situation, our team can advise you on the most effective way to release your music successfully.
Can you help me get playlist features and store banners?
Yes of course! We have strong relationships with all the major DSPs and our pitching team works with the same contacts and editorial teams that the majors do.
Every week our team secures banners on Beatport and Traxsource, playlist covers and features on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Deezer, label profiles on Juno, and much more.
Are you able to put my music on YouTube and platforms like TikTok and Facebook?
Yes. Digital video and user-generated content (UGC) are changing the way record labels operate and we have a dedicated team who will support you in this area.
Adopting new technologies is a priority for us and our close working relationship with DSPs means we get early access to emerging features and opportunities with major DSPs like YouTube, Twitch and Meta.
We’re a Tier-A partner on YouTube so our distribution clients automatically get 20% higher royalty payments, and we work closely with platforms like Meta, TikTok and Twitch to make sure your music is available and monetised wherever it is used.
How do I get paid?
Our team of experts can advise you on the best ways to drive growth, increase revenue, and monetise your catalogue across sales, streaming and even sync.
Every stream, sale and use of your music is then reported quarterly or monthly, and our RoyaltyWorx service can help you keep track of your label’s accounts.
What else can LabelWorx bring to the table?
When you work with LabelWorx, you’re not only getting an industry-leading distribution service - you also get direct access to 15 years of experience from a support team that lives and breathes electronic music.
Our hands-on approach allows us to help bring projects to life with opportunities to apply for dynamic funding and flexible ad budgets. Behind the scenes, we’ll fight your corner and represent your interests with DSPs so that you can continue to grow as an independent artist or label.
