How it works

Artcore is an online music marketplace built from the ground up to meet the needs of artists, bands and small labels. It was designed with DJs and electronic artists in mind, providing extensive metadata to help discover, curate and plan DJ sets, but it's open to all, so bands and singer song-writers are welcome too and we provide customisation and personalisation tools so you only see the music you like!

Lovingly created by a producer/dj to be fast with the latest tech and a modern UI so you can discover new music and build your sets faster with less clicking around.

Metadata is front and center to help you find what you are looking for and we're focused on unearthing the hidden gems instead of pushing the top 10s

We take care of paying artists directly, so you don't have to. Allocate royalty shares and expenses and invite them to the platform and we'll do the rest.

Our pricing is simple and fair, we take up to 20% of each digital sale and there are no monthly fees. Artists keep the remainder minus any paypal fees. Artists and Labels who introduce other artists or labels can take home up to 93% (after tax). Each invited invited artist who makes a sale earns you an additional 0.25% discount on commission (down to minimum 1%) for 1 year. More on Fees here.

As a marketplace, Artcore only facilitates the sale, you set your prices, manage your profile and retain full control of your music.
