The Platform includes access to customizable players (“Players”), and an embeddable version of the Beatdrop Box® waveform player (“Widget”) for incorporation into users’ own sites, third party sites or social media profiles, whether or not a Linked Service. This functionality is provided to enable Uploaders to put their Content wherever they wish, and to enable other users of the Platform to share and distribute Content within the parameters set by the Uploader.
You may not, without the prior written consent of Beatdrop Box®, use the Players or the Widget in such a way that you aggregate Content from the Platform into a separate destination that replicates substantially the offering of the Website, or comprises a content service of which Content from the Platform forms a material part. Similarly, you may not, without the prior written consent of Beatdrop Box®, use the Players or the Widget to embed Content into any website or other destination dedicated to a particular artist (except where the relevant Content is Your Content and you are the person or are authorized to represent the person to whom the site or destination is dedicated), or to a particular genre.

Forwarding your content to A&R people and relevant electronic music labels
Beatdrop Box® has developed an algorithm which ensures your audio content is automatically send to A&R departments, A&R managers or other label contacts or ‘demo dropboxes’. If your uploaded audio hits certain tresholds and numbers of plays in our system forwarding is triggered. It is a combination of ‘stars’ and ‘hearts’ and actual daily ‘spins’ of your track. Upload only your best work We pressure that you don’t add all your work but only the best of the best of your work. Labels are already receiving an overload of demos every day so it is of great importance you upload only your best work and focus all efforts on that. It is permitted to engage your fans into ‘loving’ and ‘starring’ your track(s). Use the sharing functionality to do so.
We have a growing network of contacts with electronic music labels and the database ensures a most custom match of your talent and potential with label closest to your specific genre. Please ensure in case of adding a track you fill in the best genre for your track together with ‘sounds like’ to name the artist closes to the sound of your track. We continually develop our relationship with the music publishing market, labels, acts and artists.
Our dream is to give upcoming artists and producers an effective stage and real listenteners they deserve in an early stage of their career and get noticed with minor and/or major electronic music labels or influencers. We would love to see you get signed, using Beatdrop Box® as a stepping stone and to see you grow as an artist and musician into a musical life and career. Beatdrop Box® is in no way obliged to push or send forward your track to labels. Beatdrop Box® can change the algorithm whenever we find it important to do so and decide not to forward tracks for any reason whatsoever and at our own discretion.
