We support and encourage content creators to use College Music Records releases. All we ask is that you follow the follow the steps outlined below.

How do I know which tracks are College Music Records?

All of our releases are distributed to a wide variety of platforms – including Spotify, Apple Music, BandCamp. We also upload every release to our YouTube Channel – however this may not always include the full album or a track by track order of the release. For example, we may share a mini-mix of an album instead.

If you’ve found the track/album on Spotify or Apple Music – you can double check by looking at the ℗ P-Line. If it says “College Music Records” then that’s us!

You can find our whole discography as the following sites:



Apple Music

We also have a playlist over on our YouTube Page, however this does not cover the full discography.

How do I credit the song(s) I use properly?

For example, for Karuna’s track, Melon, you would need to credit it like so:

Song | Karuna – Melon

Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/5mJUVPMOEkte4EqzMNx2Z6?si=Xu_vAVv_SnSPcverYkr9sQ

Please make sure to always include:

    • At least one social link to the artist – preferably a Spotify, Apple Music or Soundcloud link. You can find these in the description of our videos.
    • The download/stream link. This will also be included in the description of our videos – if you’re unable to find this, please copy the Spotify / Apple Music / store  link to the track/album instead. This link may be different for the same artist (for example, if it’s a separate single/EP release) so please make sure to check.
