3. How do I know you have received my music submission?
If you have filled out everything correctly, then you should get a confirmation message at the end saying something like “You’ve now successfully submitted your music”. – when you get this confirmation message, then you can be 100% sure that we’ve received your submission.
4. Do you only release music within specific genres?
No, we release music within all kinds of genres and categories, but the more “theme/genre-based” the music is the better. When creators are searching for music for their videos, they’re often using search terms such as “happy music, sad music, piano music, chill music, energetic, guitar music, etc”. If your music is easy to categorize, then more people will find the music and use it in their videos. However, we prefer music without the use of vocals, as this is often more suitable as background music.
