And now, how do I put and distribute my music on KKBOX?

As an independent artist or band, you can’t distribute directly to shops like KKBox, AWA, Spotify YouTube Music or Amazon Music. To put and distribute your music on KKBox and other streaming and download shops, you need to contact a digital music distributor, like iMusician, and submit your tracks. We act as the broker between artists or independent record labels and online shops and streaming platforms. We make sure that the releases are properly delivered to those shops of your choice (KKBox, AWA, Deezer, Apple Music, etc.). We also guarantee that your music will be distributed with the correct metadata to those shops.

With iMusician, there is no registration fee, annual fee, or mountains of paperwork! We save you the boring part of the job and distribute your music to over 250 streaming and download services worldwide.
