KIKO Digital – Pay as you go music distribution service
KIKO Digital is a newly launched music distribution service and what makes them unique is that they say they are the first ‘pay-as-you-go’ such service.
What is a music distribution service?
A music distribution company’s, as the name suggests, core job is to get your music distributed to various outlets and these days these outlets are online channels such as iTunes, Beatport and many others.
They’re pretty much the go-between the retailer and the supplier of the music whether it’s an independent artist or an indie label. Online stores prefer to deal with one company supplying a large catalogue of music than each and every single independent label or, even harder, each and every producer who wants to get his/her music online.
KIKO Digital is a digital distribution platform aimed specifically at independent artists and labels in Africa. But they also offer something different and potentially more affordable for small independents and that is the pay-as-you-go business model.
This means that artists pay only for the service they use: per minute, per month, per track with no additional, ambiguous charges.
“No hidden clauses, no long term commitments, artists are in control and keep 100% of their revenues.”
KIKO Digital delivers music to all the main digital music stores around the world including iTunes, Apple Music, YouTube, Deezer, Amazon and Spotify.
