Announcing our new ‘Nova’ artist partnership with SoundCloud

Splice and SoundCloud have joined forces to launch Nova, a new program designed to elevate emerging music creators.

Open to unsigned Splice and SoundCloud music creators, the partnership starts with a series of contests across the Splice and SoundCloud communities. Splice is set to release twelve Nova Artist Packs—collections of signature sounds, loops, and samples—starting in January 2022, and artists can enter the first contest that’s launching today here.

Within its creator ecosystem, Splice has a formidable and international community of producers, sound designers, and music creators, working with a library of over two million pre-cleared samples. This is the first time Splice has opened sound pack creation opportunities to users; previously, they were only available to established sample labels and creators, including the likes of Murda Beatz, WondaGurl, Travis Barker, Chad Hugo, George Clinton, and Boi-1da.

How to enter:

  1. Join the official Splice Discord server.
  2. Check the #battle-announcement channel.
  3. Download these Splice Sounds to incorporate into your track.

SoundCloud—where many of today’s most influential artists and producers launch their careers—is home to over 30 million creators, including some of the most promising next-gen talent pushing music culture forward. Four winners will be handpicked by teams at Splice and SoundCloud to receive SoundCloud’s enhanced marketing and distribution services. These custom services include dedicated account management, professional marketing and promotion, industry-leading distribution to all major streaming services, and support from SoundCloud for their next project, including $20K in marketing spend.

Let’s get your music heard—we hope to see you on Discord!
