|"This is a small step with big implications," says Hunter Giles, Co-Founder of Infinite Catalog. "Traditionally, distribution and royalty accounting are either completely siloed from each other or 'all in one' — the former makes it harder to track royalties and pay artists, the latter makes it harder for labels to work with the best partners and maximize their catalog's potential. Integration between the two, on the other hand, is the best of both efficiency and independence, benefiting labels, artists, and the entire ecosystem. Super grateful to Secretly for their vision, trust, and always putting the independent community first."|
Darius Van Arman, Co-CEO of Secretly Distribution, adds, "When we got to know the Infinite Catalog team, we were very happy to learn that their principles are aligned with our own. Like us, Infinite Catalog is committed to bringing scale advantage to small and medium-sized labels, so that at a relatively low cost they can have the same caliber of royalty processing capabilities as the biggest music companies. Infinite Catalog is also committed to interoperability, enabling equitable and transparent accounting to artists, and sustaining independence. We are very excited to grow along-side Infinite Catalog and work together with them to support the extraordinary artists and labels in our shared ecosystem."
