Artist Sign Up Form

After filling-in the form, you will receive a revenue share proposal and if you agree to that, we will send you a link to sign the agreement (click here for an example) and subsequently create your account in our system.

Please note that it can take up to two weeks for us to respond to your application, due to overwhelming interest.

Before you proceed, please read the following terms:

  • In order to distribute your music through us, you must own the full rights (either by license or master ownership) for digital distribution.
  • Supplying remixes of other people's songs without their explicit permission is not allowed.
  • Do not use other people's artist names as your own or in your titles and do not use other people's music as your own.
  • Do not use paid promotion services that promise or guarantee increased streaming of your tracks or playlist placements. These companies may employ fraudulent streaming techniques, which can lead to takedowns of your music and termination of your account.
  • Certain types/genres of music are excluded from Content ID and similar digital fingerprinting services on Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Soundcloud etc. These include, but are not limited to, ambient soundscapes, sound-alike covers, karaoke and spoken word.
  • Certain types/genres of music are difficult to place on many outlets or will be declined outright, such as public domain, karaoke, sound-alike covers.
  • Music containing commonly available samples, beats, loops or instrumentals, or live versions with a likeness to the original recording, can trigger false fingerprinting matches, which will lead to reference de-activation on applicable services.
  • If you agree to our revenue share proposal (which you will receive after filling-in this form), you enter into a non-exclusive legal agreement with The Source B.V. to digitally distribute your music for the duration of one year from the date of activation of your account, which will automatically renew with a subsequent notice period of one month. Non-exclusivity means that you remain free to exploit your music through any means other than the services that The Source provides. A full contract will be provided shortly after account activation.
  • Not adhering to these terms and content restrictions can lead to delivery delays, takedowns and ultimately account termination and/or legal proceedings.
