Before you submit,

please verify the following

You must own and control 100% of the copyright in both the composition and master recording of the music. Sound-alikes and samples are NOT permitted.

We do not accept any music on a non-exclusive basis. You may submit tracks that have already been placed elsewhere as examples of your work, but we will require exclusivity on all tracks added to the library.

We act as the exclusive music publisher for the compositions in our library, promoting and representing them to our clients worldwide.

If your music has the potential to match our needs, a member of our music content team will reach out to you with details on how we can work together. If, unfortunately, your music does not fit well with our library, due to volume and time restrictions we cannot expand on the reasons we are not accepting your music. Note that it may take up to 4 weeks before we have the opportunity to review your music.
