Our artist service label Dr. Music Records rounds off the musical care service of Dr. Music Promotion and enables bands the worldwide physical and digital distribution of their self-financed albums through our distribution partners Edel AG (physical G-S-A), Plastic Head Music Distribution (physical international), MVD Entertainment (physical North America, Asia and Australia) and recordJet (digital).
Dr. Music Records is a healthy alternative to a licensing deal with a traditional record company as the musicians retain all distribution rights and the artists receive the significantly higher share of the sales revenues. One advantage of this is that you can sell the CDs at your concerts without losing shares and without being tied to a company in the long run. The Dr. Music Records artist service label model gives artists complete freedom and still provides all professional channels that are necessary for a successful release.
The distribution deal is tied to a PR campaign by Dr. Music Promotion. Our docs will be pleased to advise you on our PR services for print, online, radio and TV as well as playlist pitching. Furthermore, we consult in optimizing your own social media presence and image. Otherwise, it will be challenging to achieve the set goals without noticeable activity on all relevant platforms and without a clear strategy.
Of course, our team also takes over the label and distribution management and ensures that our distribution partners receive all relevant information about the release in order to get the CDs and vinyl records into the racks of retailers like Saturn, Media Markt or Amazon as well as scene retailers such as EMP, Just For Kicks or Glitterhouse. Edel as well as Plastic Head Music and MVD Entertainment have been among the largest independent distributors for decades. With a cross-genre market presence ranging from Metal, Rock, Pop, Urban and Jazz to World Music, Edel is an essential network in the German music industry. The same applies to Plastic Head Music and our American partner MVD Entertainment in the international music business. Our digital distribution partner recordJet ensures the best possible placement of our music in the numerous download shops and streaming services such as iTunes, Amazon MP3, Spotify, Deezer, YouTube Music and many more.
Furthermore, we advise our musicians and give them tips on how they can support the marketing of their music on their own. If a CD duplication is required, we can gladly help you as well with our network of specialists.
