What is drip.fm℠?
It’s a fan club for the digital age - a subscription service to establish a more direct connection between fans and the music. You can join a record labels’ drip and receive music, information, and perks related to the artists you love. It’s also a way to discover music you may not have heard before, and in the most convenient way - getting it delivered directly to your inbox. The idea came from the fans of Ghostly International, who wanted an easy and convenient way to automatically receive all of the label’s releases, and dig into its back catalog.
Is it a Store or Music Streaming Platform?
It's neither. When you receive notice of a drip in your inbox, we’re letting you know that a new release is available for download through our site. You can stream it there, but what matters is that you get to keep everything sent to you. Members also benefit from perks such as unreleased or exclusive music, ticket giveaways, goodie bags, etc.
How Pricing Works for Fans
Each label in the system chooses their monthly membership fee. Fees are collected via credit card on a recurring basis. Subscribers can cancel at any time, and any content they received during membership is theirs to keep, forever.
How Pricing Works for Labels and Artists
The drip.fm platform is free for labels to use – there are no sign up costs or usage fees. We only make money if you make money, which is done through a revenue share on sales.
How Do Artists Get Paid, and How Often?
We pay our partners on a monthly basis for subscription revenue collected each month, less our service fee.
