Recapping 2023: dig dis! Year in Review

As we bid farewell to another eventful year, it's time to reflect on the exciting developments and achievements at dig dis!. From the launch of new  innovative tools to notable signings and impressive milestones, 2023 has been a year to remember for our team and partners. Let's dive into the highlights of the dig dis! year-end review.


New Tools at dig dis!:

1. Import from Spotify Tool
Switching from one distributor to another can be a daunting task, but not with dig dis! We introduced the "Import from Spotify Tool," designed to make the transition seamless and hassle-free. This tool allows partners to migrate their data from another distributor to dig dis! effortlessly. With just a few clicks, the data is automatically imported from Spotify into our system, leaving partners with the simple task of adding artwork and audio files to their releases. Say goodbye to the complexities of distributor switching!

2. link! - Your smart-link solution
In the ever-evolving digital music landscape, smart links have become a crucial promotional tool. Introducing "link!" – our answer to smartlinks. With link!, artists and labels can create smart links (and pre-saves) for their releases in a matter of clicks. A smart link essentially is a landing page that consolidates links to various platforms for a single release, giving users the freedom to choose their preferred streaming or download service. For artists, it means sharing just one link with fans. Best of all, link! is available free of charge to all our partners.

3. AI Mastering Tool
Quality mastering is essential for achieving professional sound quality in music production. In collaboration with Masterchannel, we introduced our very own AI-driven mastering tool. This tool simplifies the mastering process, allowing users to generate top-notch masters with just a few steps. Accessible via our website, the AI mastering tool will be seamlessly integrated into our platform in the near future, ensuring that our partners have access to cutting-edge audio processing technology without having to leave our platform.
