Now, Spotify has cut two distributors from it’s « Preferred » list. Under Artist Distributors, EmuBands has been dropped from the « Preferred » list to a new lower « Recommended » tier. Only DistroKid, which Spotify invested in last year, and CD Baby remain as « Preferred » conduits to Spotify for independent artists.
Distibutor Fuga lost its « Preferred » status as a Label Distributor, leaving only The Orchard with the top classification. FUGA is now in the « Recommended » category alongside a newly elevated Believe.
The list of established music distributors who do not have Spotify Preferred or Recommended Distributor status is long. Tunecore, ADA, Caroline, INgrooves, Ditto, OnePRM, Symphonic and RouteNote are all noticeably absent. Each continue to deliver new music to Spotify daily.
