Spotify + Ditto Music = unsigned act heaven!
We all know how hard it is to get your music “out there” if you’re in an unsigned band. More so if, like us, you’re rubbish. Now, though, there’s a way for unsigned acts to get their tunes heard on Spotify... via Ditto Music!
Ditto Music allows you to upload your music for free to its site. Should you join you’d be in such esteemed company as Tupac and respected muso, ahem, Samantha Fox. If you want your music to get even more coverage by making it available on Spotify (thus earning some royalties every time one of your tracks gets an airing) then you’ll have to pay a £2 per month subscription to Ditto Music. Bear in mind, though, that if you’re about as talented as Samantha Fox, you’re unlikely to make a living (let alone make that £2 back)!
Spotify has made it as easy to download tracks as it is for Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal to beat everyone at tennis. The fact that this new deal with Ditto makes it so easy for an unsigned band to get their music out to an audience of over one million suggests that this could be huge! MySpace? Pah! We’re off to Ditto Music!
