📰 Recent Blog Post: 11 Ways to Promote Music Online in China

Get Your Music Heard in China!

China is a unique music market, with its own streaming services and promotion tools. Spotify, SoundCloud, and other streaming services are NOT used in China, the country has its own platforms, fans, and followers.

If your music is released through a label, or an independent distributor like DistroKid, it’s likely available on Chinese platforms like NetEase Cloud Music or Tencent Music already! But just being online does not guarantee plays.

With a dedicated promotion in China you can:

  • Add streams and royalties from a new market
  • Get comments and likes on your music
  • Grow your fan base in China
  • Be discovered on local playlists by Chinese fans

What experience does Groove Dynasty have with music marketing campiagns in China?

Groove Dynasty has been active in China for over five years working with a variety of artists labels in campaigns big and small.

What reporting will I get?

We provide a success deck after the campaign with all playlist entries, including a description and stats of the playlists, track engagement, screenshots of influencer posts, and more. Track play counts are not public on DSPs in China, so success is measured via comments/engagement on the track page, artist page charts, and other social stats.

How do I know the plays are real?

We work with dozens of playlisters in China across all platforms. While it’s not possible to guarantee plays via any campaign, we constantly monitor our partners to measure regular growth in plays and followers and only work with those who have a proven track record of success.

How do I pay for promotion in China?

Groove Dynasty accepts payment via Paypal or bank transfer. All payments are made in advance.

How do I get paid for streams on my music?

Payments come as normal through your distribution or label, Groove Dynasty does not claim or process any royalty payments.
