TrackDrip is a platform that operates from Suriname and focuses on listeners in the Caribbean and Latin America. Services such as Spotify and Apple Music are not yet available everywhere in these areas. The ultimate goal of TrackDrip is to develop and professionalize the Caribbean music industry and to create and exploit Caribbean music on a local and international level.

In the future, the streaming service also wants to make studio facilities and event halls available to make content creation more accessible to artists. The app also provides a collective revenue model for the created content, by exploiting it on a local and international level. For remote areas where internet or wifi is missing, there is a premium variant that also plays music and videos without internet.

Distribution to TrackDrip is available immediately through our platform. You will find an up-to-date overview of all streaming services and download stores that are available via WM Digital Services here.

Tip: Determine the start time of your track on TikTok yourself

The TikTok app is very popular and since distribution to TikTok was added to our platform, changing the audio clip start time for TikTok videos has been a much requested option. We have good news: from now on you determine the start time of your track on TikTok.

As you know, TikTok only plays part of your song. Until now, that was automatically the start of the track, but you can now set which audio clip you want to make available for use in TikTok videos.

How does it work?
- When you have uploaded an audio track, you can open it with the 'pencil' on tab 3 or the 'edit' option on tab 4 in your release.
- At the bottom of the page you will now find the option 'Start Point Time'. Here you enter the desired start time.
- The format is mm: ss, so if you want the track on TikTok to start at 1 minute 20 seconds, enter '01: 20 '
- The option only works for songs longer than 30 seconds and the specified start time must be at least 30 seconds before the end of the track.

Want to make your songs findable on TikTok? Create an account on our site and get started right away!

Do you want to send your existing releases to TikTok, or adjust the start time? Mail to info@wmdigitalservices.nl and we will fix it as soon as possible.
