Music Distribution FAQ

If you want to upload music on Spotify and other streaming sites you need a Music Distributor like SpaceMedia.

Streaming sites like Spotify don’t allow users to upload their music directly because they don't want to deal with copyright or guideline problems and because of this, they select partners like SpaceMedia to Distribute Music and take care of payments, guidelines, copyright, and everything related to this.

To publish your music you just need to create an account on SpaceMedia and then you can start uploading your music on our distribution platform.

Depending on your chosen plan (Free, Basic, or Premium) your music will be distributed within 24h after submission.

At SpaceMedia Music Distribution, we provide YouTube Content ID to our users, which allows them to receive all streaming revenue generated by their music. With this tool, if someone uses your music in a YouTube video, we will automatically claim it, and you will receive all the earnings generated by that video. At SpaceMedia, we believe in empowering our users to take control of their music and maximize their earnings.

We got you covered.

If you submit music with us your music will be automatically Distributed to all streaming stores around the world, including TikTok, Instagram and FaceBook.

There is no additional step you need to go. We publish your music to all Streaming Stores and Social Media Music Stores.

Back in the day, musicians could only publish music with the help of a Record Label.

They often take a big cut of your revenue (mostly around 50%) and it's often hard to become a label member.

With SpaceMedia it's easy; you can be your own music label and depending on your plan you can keep up to 100% of your streaming revenue. Now you are a real independent Artist!

Do you wonder how we can offer Free Music Distribution to everyone?

Here is the answer; we want to give every artist out there the chance to get heard around the world, and if you are just started your music career you maybe just want to get your music on Spotify, TikTok, Deezer, Apple Music, etc. without any types of costs, that’s why we implemented the free music distribution.

We only earn if you do, and as a free member, you will keep 80% of your streaming revenue.

If you notice that your music is going wild you can upgrade your plan at any time so you can keep 100% of your revenue.

Yes, you can!

And the best part is; Your Music stays live at stores without any type of downtime.

You won’t lose any statistics (Streams, Playlist Positions, etc) The transfer is absolutely seamless.

Just make sure to use the same metadata and ISRC while submitting your already published music (Cover Art, Artist Name, Song Name, Audio File, etc.) (ISRC: You can always find that Code on your actual distributor like DistroKid, TuneCore, etc.)

If you got any questions regarding the transfer our team is always happy to help you, just open a ticket or send us an email: support@spacemedia.uk
