Music Distribution Services FAQs

WHICH PLATFORM PROVIDES DEDICATED ARTIST SERVICES AND SUPPORT?

When it comes to artist services and support, UnitedMasters PARTNER provides everything you'd expect from a label, plus ownership of your masters. Our curated group of PARTNER artists receive hands-on support from our in-house artist relations team, personalized marketing campaigns, white glove distribution, playlist pitching, hand-picked brand collabs, and more.

Currently, UnitedMasters PARTNER is by invite only. Our in-house artist relations team identifies emerging talent to upstream to PARTNER. UnitedMasters SELECT artists are eligible to be invited, and among the first to be considered.

WHICH PLATFORM IS THE EASIEST TO USE?

UnitedMasters changed the game with the launch of the first ever music distribution app for iOS and Android. Now it's easier than ever to upload music, access streaming analytics, submit for sync deals/playlisting, buy/sell beats and more. With TuneCore, CDBaby, Amuse and other services, you can only perform these actions on desktop.

WHICH DISTRIBUTOR CAN HELP ME GET PLAYLISTED?

UnitedMasters is the only distributor to partner with Apple Music and the NBA to get artists playlisted on BASE:LINE, the best playlist for emerging independent talent. UnitedMasters also gives artists the ability to submit their music to the "UnitedMasters: SELECTED" Spotify playlist for additional coverage.

UnitedMasters SELECT artists can pitch their music to playlist curators and music professionals through our partnership with Groover. See more information here.

WHICH DISTRIBUTOR IS BEST FOR PROMOTING MY MUSIC?

UnitedMasters offers many promotional tools to help artists master their independence. Partner with the world's hottest brands, submit for exclusive sync licensing opportunities and get playlisted where it matters. Artists can promote their releases with MasterLinks, a central link directing your fans to their preferred music service, on their preferred device, in their preferred app.

CAN I TRANSFER MY MUSIC TO UNITEDMASTERS FROM ANOTHER DISTRIBUTOR?

To transfer your music to UnitedMasters, you'll want to follow these easy steps:

1. The first step is understanding whether or not you’re under any agreements that prevent you from moving your catalog to UnitedMasters. This is something that you should be able to reference in the distribution agreement you have in place, or you can just reach out to your previous distributor to find out.

2. There is no way to transfer accounting, rights ownership or the actual assets in back-end systems. So you will need to prepare your catalog to manually upload it to your UnitedMasters account as a second step.

3. Assuming that you are not under a current agreement, and are free to move your catalog to UnitedMasters, our third recommended step would be to set up your releases as "drafts" into our system.

When transferring your catalog, you want to minimize any lapse in your digital presence. As such, timing your distribution through UnitedMasters in tandem with your previous distributor's takedowns is important.

Once you understand the timing, you are ready to distribute your music. Be sure to follow the instructions here to transfer stream counts, set release dates for your drafts, submit your release(s) for approval, and request your previous distributor to issue takedowns.

DO I OWN MY MUSIC WITH UNITEDMASTERS?

With UnitedMasters SELECT, you maintain 100% of your royalties and full ownership over your creations.

CAN UNITEDMASTERS GET ME AN ARTIST ADVANCE?

Yes, UnitedMasters gives qualified artists the option to apply for advances through BeatBread. BeatBread is a music platform that provides advances and royalties to independent artists. It's designed to help artists monetize their music and build their careers by giving them access to funding and other industry resources.
