Distribute and Make Money on your Music in Mainland China

RouteNote gives you the free solution to easily distribute your music to the biggest stores and services in China and make money.

RouteNote works with the biggest music stores and streaming services around the world like Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music and Tidal. We recently partnered with Kanjian, the biggest home of independent music in all of Asia, to get RouteNote artists heard more prominently in China.

Kanjian was founded in Shanghai in 2013 an is now the home to 1 million tracks from over 5,000 labels and 40,000+ musicians and provides unique marketing opportunities to help smaller artists gain exposure around the globe.

China is a massive market, the population is over a billion, even for music with some services boasting over 800 million users. For comparison Spotify, generally considered the most successful streaming service in the world, has just over 100 million users.

As Kanjian distributes to all the biggest Asian music services you can open your music up to over 1 billion people through RouteNote.
