Record Label Distribution Channels


Collection of digital music distributors

The two information sections below are self-explanatory and show that EDMstr is in a wonderful position to help you expose your music to vast international audiences, regardless of your specific dance music production style.

EDMstr’s relationship network consists of Primary and Secondary Music Distribution Channels/Partners. Our Primary Music Distribution network includes over 60 core channels, while our Secondary Music Distribution network embraces over 200 additional channels, plus their syndicated content and third-party international affiliates, with more being added regularly.

Combined with hundreds of partners and sub-channels under each network, this dance music distribution system translates into a broad-sweeping marketing reach that touches virtually every corner on Earth across a total of over 1,000 international online music distribution platforms.

This means two things: first, you will probably only need one record label to work with, and second, your music will have a chance to reach into the hearts of audiences across the planet at about the same time. In simple terms it means this: if your music is likable, you will get noticed and you will enjoy the exposure, which will result into record sales and/or into many international bookings.


The list below is sorted in the same order in which EDMstr began working to establish relationships with these platforms. It contains our core music platforms – our Primary Distribution network. Unlike the platforms in the Secondary Distribution list (Section 2 below), these leading services have automated release ingestion systems, which means that we can control their release schedules and their market reach very well.

Note two things before you start surfing through the list… First, remember that certain websites limit user access geographically, which means that they may not be accessible from your region; for instance, a site may look broken in the UK or the USA but may work fine in Japan or Singapore. Second, because the sites below are international and many are located in time zones different from your own, they may be undergoing maintenance during your daytime hours. However, if you are certain that a specific site is down, please kindly let us know so that we can investigate.

EDMstr regularly collaborates with other partners and platforms, including hundreds of syndicated content channels and third-party international affiliates, with more being added regularly – all resulting into well over 1,000 productive release and distribution pathways – many of which may work very well for your specific music style! These partners and platforms include (1) networks syndicated through their parent networks (such as those listed in the section above) or (2) networks affiliated with other platforms through third-party agreements or (3) relationships resulting from our record label’s day-to-day business in the music industry, including promotional and booking opportunities, international management, music conferences, media, PR contacts, event and concert/festival marketing, etc.

We do not maintain a public list of Secondary Music Distribution channels/partners for two reasons: first, not all of them are useful for every music producer, and second, their list constantly changes as either (a) new digital distributors become available and/or (b) existing distributors run into new opportunities or go out of business or merge with others and/or (c) EDMstr establishes new and exciting contacts with other industry players. We encourage you to use our Contact Page if you have a question about a specific platform or network in any specific country/region, media sector or industry segment.
