We’re proud of the professionals in our team, being experienced and responsive to the needs of each partner.

Our distribution department is experiencing a very strong growth, making a name for itself as a major new player in the field. Thanks to our dedicated and dynamic team (supply chain, label managers, trade marketing and playlists, release strategy, back office, statements & royalties) we thoroughly serve our distributed labels.

Our licensing department is a proven leader within the sync. world. Our experienced and dynamic team, based in Europe and North America, lands 800+ syncs each year worldwide. Good news, our clients network is constantly growing.

Our publishing department, with 15 years of experience, is made up of specialists in rights collection and copyrights management, registration of musical works in all Performance Rights Organizations, monitoring and tracking.

Our team carries out publishing growth and collaborates closely with the A&R and synchronization departments.

History of Alter k

Created in 2008, Alter K's initial activity is synchronization, publishing and publishing administration.

Gradually, Alter K developed a label and development division. Alter K also creates "Jeune à Jamais" a production and publishing company dedicated to rap and urban music artists.

In 2017, following an acquisition, Alter K launched its digital distribution activity, signing agreements with all DSPs. This activity, in strong development, has enabled Alter K to become a major player in digital distribution and artist services.

In 2021, in order to complete its image music offer, Alter K acquired Creaminal, a major player in music supervision.

Alter K group has now evolved into a complete global music services company, allowing it to work in line with the needs of contemporary artists, labels, and publishers.

Independance as a value

Alter K group has always been independent, both artistically and financially. We have developed our companies gradually, growing altogether with the projects we supported.

We now provide all our partners - publishing, licensing, digital distribution - with proximity, listening, and a quality of service adapted to everyone.

The diversity of our activities allows us to support each artist, label and publisher according to their needs, in an à la carte approach.
