What is LabelGrid

Advanced Catalogue Management & Aggregation.

Content brands of all kinds use LabelGrid's tools and services to increase their organization's productivity while facillitating distribution of their content to all the major outlets including all major DSP outlets, even Bandcamp or your own distro. If you have an existing distribution contract, we can still act as your catalog management services while increasing exposure of your content and creating new opportunities for streams, sales, and growth. We service many sectors of the industry including independent record labels, artists, general creators, and distributors.


Distribution is only a small part of what we do.

Full-on content suite.

We want to help people build their media brands by allowing them to do more with their content. From finding untapped monetization options, implementing better marketing strategy, or utilizing state of the art tools in an ad-hoc fashion -- we want it all to be available from this single platform.

Distributed Backups

If you ever lose a file due to personal data loss, LabelGrid's backup system could come to the rescue. We run regular backups of all data, which means, if you host your label's content with us, we may be able to recover these files, even if you deleted it from LabelGrid in the past.

Under the hood

Each label and user has default presets that can be used to finely tune many of the scheduling and automated posting tools.

Innovative, lean, agile.

We've created this platform to integrate seamlessly with your existing workflow. Additionally, you'll find that new workflows emerge with LabelGrid, because you'll have a platform that helps you scale and automate your efforts. Think scheduling, syncing, and posting via various 3rd party API's and plugins, or even syncing to your website. LabelGrid gives you the path to scaling up your distribution and marketing efforts.

Nimble framework.

We are constantly working to make sure our framework is fast and responsive so that you can perform the task at hand without distraction and delay. Our rollout of version 2 of our UI and API in 2020 is a testament to this promise.


PROJECT FOCUS

We want to be your techonology provider, empowering you with the tools and direction you need to grow.


Is your catalogue on Beatport? We can import your whole library in just a few minutes.

Private files

Private files are the files from your catalogue which we require secure keys to access. For example, your source audio WAV and FLAC and full-length files are kept under lock and key and only accessible by you when you are logged into the system. The same goes for all files in your files manager (aka incoming demo manager). The exception to this rule is that we offer a way for you to obtain a secret link which you can share privately with other people.

Public files

Public files are not restricted in any way and are available on the public web. These files include album art, your label logo, non-full-length or non-full quality audio clips, and similar assets which often need to be available when we link to your products on our automatic landing page, and label catalogue listings. These listings can also be disabled in your label settings if you wish. Just to be clear, none of your sensitive content is available as a public file.

Queue system

Almost every feature which utilizes scheduling or has batch operations will utilize an operational queue in which each item is processed (one at a time) but concurrent with other queues. For example, if you have a post sitting in your Soundcloud queue, as well as another item in your Youtube queue; both of those items will be processed at the same time as soon as a spot becomes available in the queue processor.
