By now, we’re sure that everyone is aware of the recent discussions surrounding Spotify and the so-called “fake artists”. While we can’t comment on the validity of these allegations we were interested to hear about news that followed this; the matter of fake streams.
The time has finally come. We have welcomed our new MyClientZone system! This will replace the current Client Zone that has been in operation since 2014. This is now where you can go to upload and distribute your releases.
You will notice quite a lot of difference between this new system and our old one, but you should find a lot quicker and in a more logical and user friendly way. It is all new, and we know that it will take some time for everyone to get used to, us included, to please take some time to familiarise yourself with MyClientZone.

Horus Music is 10 years old this year, and what better way to celebrate than to look back on what we have been up to over the 12 months. In addition to opening an office in India, we have attended several industry events and welcomed many new faces to the team.
The biggest and most exciting event of the past year has been the opening of our new office in India! Setting up shop in Mumbai, we can now bring our expertise in music distribution and other services to Indian artists while retaining a local feel. The new members of our Indian team came to our Leicester office to visit in early June and it was a great opportunity to learn more about Indian music and culture for the rest of the team.
How we celebrated
In addition to our Indian venture, we have kept ourselves busy in the UK too. This year Horus Music were sponsors of the Cheltenham Jazz Festival’s Free Stage, where we helped to bring free jazz music to over 14,000 people over the course of the weekend. The event was a huge success and showcased some great up and coming jazz artists as well as established acts. Among some of these acts were Jamie Cullum, Corinne Bailey Rae and Beverly Knight. Beverly previously distributed music through our service in 2015. Horus Music also was a sponsor of this years Midem conference in Cannes. As the worlds biggest music industry conference, we have been attending Midem ever since the company began and have some great relationships with other attendees and organisers of the event. Being a sponsor was a great way to celebrate our 10th year as a company as well as a decade of attending Midem, which has always been a rewarding event for us and continues to be.
In other industry events we sponsored the Brighton Music Conference, which showcases the latest in dance music technology and DJ equipment. There were also a number of industry talks and panels, one of which we organised ourselves called ‘Downloads, Streaming, Vinyl and Record Labels: Navigating the Next 10 Years’ which was very well received. In May we attended The Great Escape Festival, also in Brighton, and attended various industry talks as well as meeting some great companies and see some up and coming UK artists.
We also had the long awaited visit of our Web Guru’s from Croatia to our Leicester office. It was a great experience to have the full team together and discuss upcoming improvements to our system that you can all expect to see in the near future. It was fun giving our foreign visitors a taste of English culture and food too, in addition to allowing them to meet the new members of our growing team.
As a celebration for our 10th birthday party, we will be inviting plenty of old and new friends, as well as some of our clients to join us in reflecting on the past decade as well as looking forward to the future of Horus Music.
In the mean time take a look at this video that shows some of the milestones from our humble beginnings in Birmingham to where we are now. Here’s to the next 10 years!
