What Is Audiomack?

Audiomack is a free, limitless music sharing and discovery platform that allows artists and creators to upload music and podcasts for listeners through its website and app.

It’s completely free for content creators to use and has no limitations or restrictions. Audiomack focuses entirely on new, independent, and up-and-coming artists. They differ from Spotify and Apple Music as they are not a full-catalogue streaming service, and they don’t plan to become one.

Similarly, to the way we use social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to promote music, Audiomack can be used alongside Spotify, SoundCloud, and other digital services to host, share, market, and track your audio.

Get this – Audiomack doesn’t charge listeners either! Although they do offer premium subscriptions to users who’d like to stream ad-free, high-quality music and download entire playlists from Audiomack’s app for $4.99 a month.

It shares similarities with SoundCloud in that anyone can upload and listen for free. Audiomack’s goal is to promote emerging artists. Since 2012 Audiomack has been a free music streaming service, and now has an impressive 17 million monthly active users. Even as its popularity continues to skyrocket, it maintains focus on boosting the online presence and careers of independent artists.

However, it’s not just new artists on the platform – there’s also big-name artists like Eminem, who chose to release his 2018 Machine Gun Kelly diss track ‘Killshot’ on Audiomack. Eminem’s unexpected release also highlighted the DIY nature of the platform, despite licensing deals with the biggest record labels in the game – Warner, Sony and Universal Music. Also, at the start of this year, Billboard announced that Audiomack streaming data would be included in its charts.
