The following also applies to sending your promo for Dharma of an existing Dharma Worldwide song (remix/bootleg) for an official release consideration.

There are 2 ways to send your demo to Dharma Worldwide. We check all demos submitted both ways. 

  1. Submit your demo through our website here: dharmaworldwide.com/demo/

Please consider that your demo is checked in batches. We listen to every demo, but due to the amount received we cannot give individual feedback. If we like it, we will contact you within 2-3 weeks. 

2. Submit your demo via Dharma Worldwide Pro: dharmaworldwide.com/account/subscription/create?subscription=pro

We launched Dharma Worldwide Pro for producers who desire feedback on their recent productions. Even if we believe your track doesn’t suit our label, you will still receive short feedback (usually 2-4 sentences) on how it can improve. With Pro you can also send us new versions so we can help guide you to deliver the best possible demo. 

If we think the production/idea is strong enough, we will forward it to the next round of feedback so the head of A&R and KSHMR can decide if it's going to be signed. Every week we sign new demos from the old and new demo system. ‘Demo of the Weeks’ will get featured on the website and on our Spotify Playlists. You will receive a contract and assets to promote your release. 

We ask for a small monthly fee of $4.99 so we can invest in time, technology, tutorials, and sample packs so you will have all the tools to create the next Dharma Worldwide release!



We understand that you want to have permission to use our music on platforms like Youtube, Facebook, Soundcloud, Twitch etc. At the moment we are working hard on streamlining this process. 

This is what you can't do:

❌ Upload a full track on Youtube (Meaning our music contains more than 65% of the video)

❌ Give away our music on platforms on any social media channel platform. Meaning linking to a free download from one of our tracks, this includes our free downloads. 

❌ Never use Paying Shortlinks that will monetize our content

❌ You can't use our (video) music if you will use it to announce an event, product, release or if you want to use it in a (commercial) movie, tv show. Rule of thumb: If you make money off our music you can't use it without approval. 

If you don't have written approval we will take down the video or sound recording. 

This is what you can do. Note: We are allowed to monetize your video. 

✅ Use a small snippet of our music on Youtube and other platforms. 

✅ Use our music in user generated content (Insta Stories, Instagram, Facebook, Youtube) as long as it's not used in full. 

✅ You can use our music if it's in the background of a video, so if you're streaming on Twitch and the main goal is not to play or upload music but to play a game than it's fine. 

At all times you need to credit the artist, label and mention the link or otherwise we can block the video. You can find these credits on the official Youtube Upload (use the first 2-3 sentences). 

If you're looking for written permission to use any of our songs for your commercial project than you need to fill in this form:

Example #1 

I think the drop has good potential and the intro caught my attention. I think it needs some work still though. I think you could make the leads and the bass + kick tighter with each other, now they sound a bit messy, try to work with busses to glue everything together so it sounds tighter. I think the break is a bit too long also, this wouldn't work in the clubs or festivals because people would get bored. Try to find something rhythmic or unique that will make a club go crazy throughout the whole song.

Example #2

I think the vocal is pretty cool and has a lot of edge. The instrumental needs some work when it comes to the whole sound, I would make the break parts a bit more deeper with the percussion and samples you use, to really create a good vibe where the sounds don't interfere to0 much with the vocal.

Check Bruno Mars songs for reference in this kind of style when it comes to production

I think the chord sounds in the drop sounds pretty cool, but they could need some more work to really comply with the percussions and other sounds you use in the drop, spend around 10 more hours on fine tuning everything so nothing sounds out of the box in terms of the production box, you want to make sure all the sounds are in harmony with each other, this also counts for the vocal.”

Example #3

I think the drop idea has potential but the rest have to be worked on, the intro sounds too basic (you should consider an intro and outro as part of the song that a listener should be interested listening to and not just for DJs).

I am not so sold on the vocal in this one, I think the breaks are a bit to messy with melodies and I think that's why I feel confused when listening to the break because you have partly instrumental leads, but also lead melodies from the vocal, try to clean that up a bit.

I think the build up is great, and the melody in the drop is great but I would work a bit more on getting the lead more clear and crisp, now they sound a bit to high end 

Example #4

I think the demo needs more work on the arrangement and mixing/mastering wise

Now the vibe in the drop is a bit empty, would look into adding more lead layers for the mid frequencies and also perhaps add anbass to your kick to get a bit more crunch out of it

Fix: Re-download the file and extract it again.

2. The path of extraction is too long. 

Fix: Please extract your file to a different parent folder. Sometimes the path is too long for an operating system to support it.

This is our #1 most frequently asked question. How do I get signed by Dharma Worldwide or what are the "requirements" to getting signed? 

The short answer: there's no secret way to getting signed by us. 

Most producers/artists believe they must meet specific requirements when submitting their demo. At Dharma Worldwide, we don't look at your amount of Facebook likes or how rich your parents are. We don't care if you are 14 or 54 years old. It all comes down to great music. If you make great electronic music you will get signed by us.  

Of course, the music style has to fit our label. We are looking for electronic music that is original, fresh, melodic, catchy, and/or are festival bangers. 

Tip: If you want to get a release on Dharma Worldwide just imagine your track being played at a big festival, club, or gym. Will it work? Does it have energy? Is the production original, catchy, melodic, or a banger? 

We always advise producers to focus on making music and not on gaining likes or followers. If you make great music, likes and followers will eventually come as you build an audience through our platform. 

So just to be clear, you don't need the following:

  1. X amount of Likes/Followers.

  2. Rich parents. 

  3. Be old or young to be eligible for a release.

  4. Expensive gear or a studio. 

What DOES help is to have a real following so you can promote your own music, and a bit of money to get access to Dharma Worldwide Pro and Dharma Worldwide Sample Packs. Studio monitors, software, and a midi keyboard can definitely enhance your production, although not required.

Once we have signed your first track with Dharma Worldwide, we will help build your career with new releases, event opportunities, and to create a story around your music. We always push new talents through the Dharma Worldwide platform. New music and artists are very important to us.
