What we bring to the table
Our top priorities: To create opportunities and solid economical models for independent artists, creatives and labels. To support the future of independent music with sustainable infrastructure and platforms.
ALOADED was created to serve independent labels, managements, artists and bands with fair values, sustainable business models and by pushing new technologies & approaches to create, distribute and listen to music.
We distribute music to 300+ streaming platforms and download stores all around the world. We welcome artists and labels in all sizes and genres. We build & support the independent music industry.
The independent music scene has seen an enormous growth over the past few years, and the possibilities for independent artistry are now massive. We offer a wide range of solutions that gives the artists and the indie labels control over their future.
For artists: We distribute your music worldwide to all streaming services and download stores. We create opportunities for unsigned artists & bands, opportunities that will boost careers. With direct access to many of the most interesting labels and A&Rs around the world, we help artists get in touch with the right people. We also offer help from our network of professional creatives and music business people.
For labels: When most distributors are direct or indirect owned by the few major corporations, we are not. For us, being independent matters. Yes, we deliver your music fast and safe to all streaming and download stores worth mentioning – but that's not all. We offer so much more – a large palette of tools, a network of like-minded, a more sustainable deal, an opportunity to be part of the future of independent music.
Why we do it
We stand up for the independent artists and labels, and the distribution options were running out.
We are the reaction to the music industry being concentrated in the hands of three (3) major corporations. ALOADED is 100% independent, meaning no major corporations are involved at any stage. We are the opposing force to conglomerates and conformity. We keep the game fair and democratic — and we're open for everyone.
We salute all people involved in the process of creating music and building careers – from the studio engineer and the cover-artwork designer, to the composers, lyricists, labels, musicians and the front singers. We believe it's important to stay close to the magic; close to the artists and the creative minds behind the scene.
We believe independent music is vital for a flourishing cultural climate. It's always from the independents where true game-changing culture begins, never from the top. It's just the way it's always been, from the early days of pop culture til today.
ALOADED was created to serve independent labels, managements, artists and bands with fair values, a transparent business model and by welcoming new technologies & approaches to creating, distributing and listening to music.
What we work on
Everything, all at once. Things are happening, now. Old systems break, new systems and routines are introduced at a high pace. ALOADED approves of this change, we welcome it – we are here to speed it up. Right now ALOADED Labs / aloaded.io are experimenting on how to implement blockchain technologies, decentralised ownership, ai-supported music making and open-source currencies into our services and products, to support our artists, labels and partners even more.
We are on the barricades of new technology and our aim is to be a distributor bringing real economic change to the artists, creators and indie labels of the world.
Who we are
We are the fans. The followers. The ones at the front row on your gig. The ones who click 'like' on your updates. The ones who generate your streaming numbers, buy your records and share your playlists. We are the fans of a vibrant and generous music climate.
Members of our team entered the music industry in the early 2000s, a time when major corporations spent more time and money on suing fans and consumers than on signing new artists, self-reflection or on finding solid business models. We came from a different direction; we were music fans first – industry and business people second. And we've spent the last decade working for true change in this climate.
Setting up ALOADED and building a platform for digital distribution was unavoidable. There were simply too many middlemen in the way, doing things the wrong way.
