What will it cost?

To deliver an album or single to ALL the digital retailers worldwide there is no upfront charge. Genepool charges an 18% commission of royalties received from retailers

Genepool will pay you 82% of all royalties from all digital music retailers (Delivered via our INgrooves partnership). There are no hidden charges or storage fees. Monthly reports available detailing every sale/stream for every track in each territory for every retailer.

Protecting your Music

Genepool/INgrooves will claim your music on Youtube and the like. So if anyone (including yourself) uploads a video using your audio – they will get a message saying it has been claimed by us. You will then receive any monetisation in your monthly reports.  For Example: if Joe Bloggs makes a fail video and uses your music to soundtrack it – you will get a share of the income for them using your audio. This will appear in your reports as ‘Youtube’ Revenue. So don’t be worried when you get a ‘claim’ like this in Youtube, it is all legitimate and you will be getting the revenue.

Barcodes/ISRC codes

We will supply these free of charge if needed. When filling out the form on the Release Music Digitally page, just leave these fields blank.

PPL/MCPS

We would advise you and your label (if you have one) to join these societies and register your releases with them.

Release dates

Please allow as much time upfront as possible between submission and release date. We can usually get releases live to retail with a few weeks but it depends on the time of year and how busy the retailers are.
