Digital distributor Music Kickup says they can upload your music to iTunes in less than an hour… 100% free with no limits.
Music Kickup also claims to upload music to Google Play, Spotify and Deezer within 48 hours. Artists keep all rights and royalties.
How can this be? It sounds too good to be true… Well, Music Kickup says distribution is just one part of their business, and they make up for the hit in other areas. The company believes distribution should be a free service, saying:
“For us the question was never about why should it be free – it was always a question of why the hell are people paying for it! As an industry we’re leaking hundreds of millions of euros/dollars/pounds away from the industry to third party companies – companies that are not returning these profits to rotation. This had to change. For us this change comes naturally.”
Music Kickup is currently only available to artists, but will soon open up for labels.
The company will soon launch artist development and management tools under the name Career Path. This service will include unnamed partnerships with other companies and services.
