    Kanjian has a professional, transparent and automated backend service platform. This is very important to me and other artists. I also took part in their Super+ scheme where I joined a music compilation created by Kanjian Music. I was impressed with their ability and experience in planning, producing, and promoting the compilations they create. Partnering with Kanjian has provided me with rich promotion resources covering a wide range of fields that can help my career grow.

    Kanjian has the fastest reaction, support & content delivery. Kanjians strong Asian selection of DSPs was also a big plus.  Global services are all provided on the platform as well. All the benefits from Kanjian have allowed us to get more followers and discover artists who are interested to sign with us and much more.

  • Third of The Fourth

    Kanjian's focus on the Asian market as well as the fact that they cover the other global markets was of interest to me. The people at Kanjian Music are always very helpful when I need them. They're able to sort any issues out or answer my questions in a timely manner. I will be bringing more music to Kanjian for sure!

  • PCB Recordings

    What made Kanjian Music stand out first off was the option for more platforms/stores worldwide to distribute to. In addition, the option for licensing, background music, and library music agreements made it an attractive offer over other options. The support is also great, I have the ability to get my questions answered quickly when needed.
