NexTone expands global distribution offering to include a comprehensive worldwide network of local and multi-national DSPs.

Via newly announced AudioSalad partnership, NexTone’s clients will now have their content distributed to all the leading music services, effectively covering the global market.

NexTone Corporation, headquartered in Shibuya-ku, Tokyo and led by CEO, Masahiro Anan, today announced that, following a new partnership with U.S. based music technology company, AudioSalad, it has significantly expanded its distribution network for digital content distribution operations. Via this partnership, NexTone is now able to distribute its clients’ music to all the leading music services around the world.

NexTone is now positioned to effectively provide a service that ensures its clients’ content is present on a comprehensive range of local DSPs across the globe.
