Artists Worldwide: Canadian Retail Radio Rotation - Get Your Music in Rotation at Retail Outlets Across Canada
Doug Diamond / Diamondigital Media is selecting tracks for inclusion in public performance playlists at over 950 high-profile retail outlets across Canada. Music selected for radio rotation will be played across popular Canadian indoor and outdoor mall chains, national retail shops, restaurant chains, fashionable retail plazas, fitness centers, and well-known big box retailers.

Sound designers typically look to contracted publishers and labels for new music. However, Doug Diamond / Diamondigital Media has opened this opportunity to unrepresented, undiscovered artists as a way to be heard across the same custom radio outlets, without being signed. Keep your music in your control, keep your revenue.

Station programmers specifically requested Pop, Pop/Rock, Dance, Electronic and DJ music in French* and English. Instrumentals welcome. Sound Designers are seeking family-friendly up-tempo, high-energy, feel-good music for immediate programming.

*French music will be specifically targeted for the Québec and Montreal markets who seek to rotate up to 6-hrs/day of exclusively French and French-Canadian music.

**All artists throughout the world are welcome to submit for rotation in Canada. This opportunity is not exclusive to Canadian acts or Canadian residents.

All up-tempo Pop, Pop/Rock hybrids, Dance, Electronic, DJ, Beats, and all high-energy, feel-good music. All French dialects accepted. Instrumentals accepted. New and old releases are welcome.
