Beatport currently only allows one distributor to deliver to a specific Beatport label at a time. This means if you have distributed your music to Beatport with another distributor and wish to transfer your catalogue to AWAL, we’ll need to have the Beatport label transferred to us before we can deliver there.
If you’d like AWAL to deliver your transferred catalogue to an existing Beatport label, please follow the steps below:
- Upload the releases you’d like to transfer to AWAL using the AWAL Uploader in the Portal. Find more information about transferring catalogue to AWAL here. You’ll need to choose a Main Extended Dance Genre on Step 4 of the Uploader, which will appear once you have chosen Dance or Electronic as the primary genre for your release. Please note that Beatport may change the genre if they do not agree with your choices.
- Once your releases have gone live through AWAL, please get in touch with us via the Contact Us page on your Portal. Please specify that you’d like us to request a Beatport label transfer and provide the name and URL of your existing Beatport label. You should also specify the UPCs of the releases you’d like us to deliver to Beatport.
- Your old distributor should reach out to you to confirm your permission for the transfer. Please confirm you’d like to transfer the label to AWAL.
- Once processed, we will get back in touch with you to confirm and your releases will be delivered to Beatport.
Note: You should not issue takedowns with your other distributor until this process has finished and you can confirm your streams have transferred on other digital services.
It may take a week or two for this process to be completed start to finish, in line with Beatport and AWAL’s lead times.
