Pushing Music Forward
There’s a monumental shift happening among people who make music. Modern artists want to be independent. They want to create, collaborate and promote in new ways, pushing culture forward while building a passion economy. They want to build their brand and run their business — on their own terms.
Out with the old, in with the new. The antiquated music industry is not built for them. It is a system designed to rip off artists by making everything hard to use and difficult to understand. We want to watch it burn, and build a better tomorrow from the ashes.
The future of music is being shaped by a new generation, expecting limitless possibilities at their fingertips. Our free digital music distribution and smooth artist services are made for them. This is a cultural movement and we’re here to move it forward.

Amuse was founded in 2015 in Stockholm, Sweden, but with global ambitions. Compared to the endless source of talent and creativity, the music industry’s complexity and legacy structures made it practically impossible for independent artists to get their music out into the world. The music industry was broken, so we decided to fix it.
Since then we’ve built a community of hundreds of thousands of users, been backed by some of the world’s leading music tech venture funds and launched cutting-edge services like Fast Forward and Amuse Pro. Following the music industry transformation, we’ve pivoted from being a reimagined record label into a global, digital artist services company, dedicated to empowering the exploding global community of independent artists.
Breakthrough artists that started their music career through Amuse include Lil Nas X, Lil Tecca, Flo Milli, Monty Datta, Snøw, Criolo, 80purppp as well as the majority of Nordic hiphop artists such as Dree Low, Z.E, Einar, Yasin, Adel and 1.Cuz.
