Music Delivery and Promotion Systems

Hi all,

Just wondering what you would say are industry standards that record companies use to distribute music pre-release to press/blogs/magazines, etc? Are Plaympe and dmds the main ones? Thanks!

Don't know if there are any really. Promotion is both a number game - you've got to reach enough outlets - but also a trust game - the outlets you reach must have some reason to look at your stuff in the sea of news they receive.

So any service that simply forward tracks for a fee without curation is doomed to be quickly deemed spam and ignored.

Don't know about curated services - they used to be called labels.. :D

Thanks for the reply CS70.

It was more to find out what the record labels use when, for example, they want a new album to be reviewed by a music website for example.

Sometimes the record label would email the music website with a private link to the album prior to release, but if some are using a music distribution system like Plaympe, they could add the album to the music website's Plaympe account.

I was just wondering if there were any more of these music distribution systems or if Plaympe is the main one.
