Ditto Music vs DistroKid

At Ditto Music, we’ve been supporting upcoming, independent artists since 2005. Our history speaks for itself.

We were the first to get an unsigned band into the official charts and since then have helped break global artists like Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith, Stormzy and more.

Access advanced marketing tools

Every time you release music with Ditto, you'll get a free SmartLink, including Pre-Save across Spotify, Apple Music & Deezer before your music drops. SmartLinks put all the links to your music on one easy-to-share page, so fans can listen no matter which platform they prefer.

You can also access other tools used by major label artists directly through our Release Builder, including Worldwide Chart Registration, Pre-Order, Express Release and more.

We’re musicians too

Brothers & co-CEOs Matt & Lee Parsons founded Ditto Music after struggling to release their own music. We’ve been there and know the struggle’s musicians face.
