Million will use AudioSalad to expand into music distribution, publishing and artist subscription services.
Million Media (www.millionmedia.com) today announce they will use the AudioSalad platform for their distribution, publishing and direct-to-fan strategies. Million, who recently announced partnerships with Nova Artist Services and Disco Soul Records, will use the AudioSalad software after extensive evaluation of other solutions.
“Compared to other distribution solutions, including the large aggregators, AudioSalad offers the best solution for our requirements when measured in terms of features, control and cost effectiveness”, said Million’s MD Neil Cartwright. “The AudioSalad platform enables digital asset management of Million’s and our partners’ catalogues. This means we can deliver to any global retailer while also building a business to business platform for music supervisors and bloggers. Furthermore, it will also integrate with the technically advanced and popular ecommerce platform Shopify to enable us to run a direct-to-fan store, including subscription services.”
AudioSalad’s label partners include Fania Records, Daptone and Domino Recording Co. “The AudioSalad platform was used to distribute numerous top selling albums in 2014 so we know it can meet our demands in full.” said Neil. “Our new range of artist services
will enable musicians at all stages of their career to control their own releases and meet the increasingly varied ways that their fans demand to listen to their music.”
Following their nomination for ‘Best Music Start Up’ at Music Alley’s ‘Digital Music Awards’, AudioSalad is poised for European expansion. As more labels realise that managing their
digital assets is vital in the new music industry, more are following the likes of Domino who use the AudioSalad platform to manage their catalog and deliver their albums successfully to global digital retailers.
Iain Catling, AudioSalad’s MD and Co-Founder said, “We welcome the opportunity to work with Neil and the Million Media team, and are delighted they selected AudioSalad to power their operations. It is positive to see increasing numbers of labels like Million Media wanting to take back full control of their assets and fully leverage their potential.”
