Audiomack recently launched their very first official Christian Hip Hop playlist, but the streaming giant isn’t done yet!

They’ve further announced a faith-based playlist series called Keep the Faith Going, which features curation from top artists in Christian Hip Hip and adjacent genres. So far there are seven entries in the series, including playlists created by Lecrae and Limoblaze.

Through the Keep the Faith Going series, fans can get to know their favorite artists on a deeper level by discovering songs that inspire them. Artists, likewise, get a chance to highlight the music that inspires them in their faith journey. “…Every waking day I remain in awe as to how good and loving God is,” said Limoblaze. “This drives my passion in everything I do, including music.”

 

We were fortunate to be able to ask Tanya Lawson, strategic marketing director of Audiomack’s Caribbean and Gospel music division, a few further questions about Keep the Faith Going.

FiveTwenty Collective: What’s the number one thing you hope listeners can get out of these playlists?

Tanya Lawson: To discover a new act they weren’t familiar with. Audiomack is a discovery platform, so of course that’s something we really want the listeners to get out of listening to these playlists.

FiveTwenty Collective: How did the Keep the Faith Going playlist series come about?

Tanya Lawson: The KTFG campaign was launched as a way to introduce Audiomack’s new gospel division. The campaign was designed to support gospel music on the platform. We wanted to raise awareness about the genre and inspire listeners to listen to gospel / inspirational music.

FiveTwenty Collective: So far the series includes playlist curation by some big names! If the series is successful, do you think there’s a possibility of expanding into more of an indie space?

Tanya Lawson: Yes, including indie artists in a campaign is our next step. Audiomack loves supporting indie artists, so … that’s actually our next step when this is successful.

 

Sounds like even more exciting stuff is on the horizon for Audiomack! Who do you want to see a Keep the Faith Going playlist from in the future? Let us know! Connect with us on Audiomack and listen to the #FIVETWENTYCO playlist.

Big news for Christian Hip Hop fans and artists! Streaming platform Audiomack has launched its first official Christ Hip Hop playlist.

The platform, which has been free to use since its launch in 2012, has garnered attention from hip-hop artists and listeners broadly, with artists like Chance the Rapper and J. Cole releasing music exclusively on Audiomack as early as 2013. In particular, Audiomack has become a hub of Christian Hip Hop music internationally, with a huge presence in Africa.

Audiomack has a reputation for building an artist-first model, making perks easily available to creators and introducing programs l

ike Supporters (which we talked about on season 4 episode 1 of the FiveTwenty Collective Show). FiveTwenty was also able to talk with one of Audiomack’s cofounders, Brian “Z” Zisook, about the vision behind the platform on season 3 episode 9 of the FiveTwenty Collective Show.

DJ Mykael V is curating the first official CHH playlist for Audiomack

The new Christian Hip Hop playlist is curated by DJ Mykael V, who told Rapzilla:

“I’m curating their premiere CHH playlist, their FIRST CHH editorial playlist and my goals are to help push this space further into more credibility and recognition by showcasing new and fire artists and honoring and elevating established ones.”

Mykael V said that he got involved after initially talking with Reach Records about his desire to do more playlist curation. “I got involved and had to show the great people at Audiomack that there is a fire market with CHH.”

You can listen to Audiomack’s Christian Hip Hop playlist below:

It seems this isn’t the last CHH playlist we’ll see from Audiomack though. The platform also recently announced a new playlist series called “Keep the Faith Going,” which features artists from Christian worship, rap, inspirational, afrobeat, and gospel music from all across the globe. The first few playlists in the series are already live, including entries for Lecrae and Limoblaze.

Audiomack is enabling artists to generate a new revenue stream…

…and connect with FANS!

Audiomack is an Artist-First music streaming and discovery platform. Since its launch in 2012, the top-ranked music app has played an integral role in breaking new acts. Now, Audiomack has launched a first-of-its-kind feature simply known as “Supporters”.

What is Supporters?

Supporters allows fans to directly support songs and albums from artists they love.

“With Supporters, Audiomack is treating artists as they see themselves – as entrepreneurs building profitable careers,” explains Audiomack co-founder and CEO, Dave Macli. “Supporters creates brand new monetization opportunities for our creator community while bringing dedicated fans closer to the music and artists they love.”

Fans participate in Supporters by purchasing support badges for individual song and album releases. In addition, when you complete a badge purchase, contributions are forever memorialized. Badges appear on your Audiomack profile as well as the artist’s page. To help showcase their support across social media, Audiomack provides custom shareable graphics.

Supporters, ranking on three levels:

  • First: The first supporters of a release
  • Top: Supporters who contributed the most
  • Latest: The most recent supporters

Artist Info

Artists and musicians are able to directly engage with their fans when they release new music. They can express their appreciation for direct support through a variety of messaging options and share exclusive content & limited offerings.

To participate in Supporters, artists must apply and gain access to Audiomack Monetization Program (AMP), or distribute their music to Audiomack through participating partners. Partners include Warner Music Group, Amuse, AudioSalad Direct, DistroKid, EMPIRE, FUGA, Stem, Vydia, and more!

If you are a FAN, not just a listener, then become an engaged Supporter.
