Intercept Music is partnering with Method Man to create a new platform for independent labels and music artists. The digital distribution platform is aimed at providing ‘artistic emancipation’ for today’s musicians.

Intercept Music is launching a new campaign entitled ‘Independence Empowered’ to highlight the partnership. “Hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard,” Method Man adds. “Proper education leads to constant elevation. Intercept equals empowerment.” Intercept Music gives artists and their labels immediate access to hundreds of digital stores and every major streaming platform. Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, Pandora, and YouTube Music distribution are all included.
Intercept Music’s powerful, proprietary social media marketing and promotional software also help musicians build their presence online. It’s an effective communication channel for promoting music, merchandising, and live performances.
Intercept Music also offers fully managed advertising, promotional services, and the opportunity to sell merchandise through branded online stores. Now independent labels have access to all of the same revenue-generating tools used by major labels.
