Ditto Music became the first distributor to place an unsigned artist on the popular music site Spotify. In 2007, the single "One Off Song for the Summer" by the British band Koopa became the first single to enter the top 40 solely based on digital downloads.

Why You Need Digital Music Distribution

Success is great, but it can come with a price. If you go the traditional route through a record label, you are not likely to have much control over how much you earn. Additionally, most record labels have the final say in what your music sounds like when it is distributed. This means compromising on artist integrity. Even a record label that allows some artistic freedom isn't going to let an artist keep all the rights and royalties associated with their music. Ditto Music allows an artist to retain the rights to their music and keep all royalties earned from a single. To an unsigned artist, this provides a solid foundation to launch a career. Artists distributed digitally through Ditto Music include:

• Suzi Quatro
• Lil Wayne
• Kid British

• Pocket Venus
• Fairport Convention
