How does this affect you? Here is what you need to know about the new partnership.
Spotify has confirmed members of DistroKid can upload music directly to the streaming service. Despite it still remains in beta mode, it will soon be a seamless upload but also, might be available for other streaming platforms.
DistroKid history started in 2013 and saw an impressionable investment from equity firm Silversmith Capital Partners based in Boston. Coinciding with this partnership, Spotify has published statements on this new step:
“For the past five years, DistroKid has served as a go-to service for hundreds of thousands independent artists, helping them deliver their tracks to digital music services around the world, and reaching fans however they choose to consume music.
