We typically approve songs based on a number of factors with the ability to enhance the driving experience being #1. Here’s what we look for when approving songs:
  • High Quality Production – Is the song mixed and mastered for an ideal listening experience?
  • Creativity – Does the song have the ability to fit inside a mold or break them? Does the song evoke an emotion?
  • Branding – Is the artist branding themselves in an interesting and creative way? What’s the story?
  • Promotion – Is the artist supporting their craft with shows, social media and other marketing efforts? Do their marketing efforts reflect a level of creativity or public interest?
  • Rideability – Does the song sound good as you ride? Could you imagine hearing it on the radio or other curated platforms?
Hmmm. This might be a case of a manager or someone within your team adding your music. Check with your internal team to see if this is indeed the case. Another scenario might be someone you’ve collaborated with uploading your music. Prior to onboarding we ask all artists to confirm that they have permission to promote music from all relevant parties and collaborators. If there are any issues with your music being on Steereo without permission, please feel free to contact our music team directly at music@mysteereo.com.
You can manage your profile on your account dashboard. This includes managing your songs, profile info and account settings.
The last thing we want to do is remove music. It literally breaks our heart. However, there are certain guidelines we must adhere to in order to continue being a fun and vibrant community. Here are some reasons why your song  may have been removed:  
  • Offensive, Violent or Inappropriate Music
  This includes: Hate speech, bullying and excessive threats of violence. At Steereo we do not tolerate offensive or violent content. We are an inclusive community filled with members from various cultures, countries, communities and backgrounds. It’s also worth noting that just became something is disagreeable doesn’t mean it’s a violation of our guidelines. It’s a fine line that we work hard to maintain and take very seriously. If you feel like your song(s) have been wrongfully removed, please contact our music team at music@mysteereo.com.  
  • Music Related Issue
  This includes: ownership, publishing and other music rights issues. Your song(s) may have been removed due to a music related issue flagged by our team. It’s important that we take the time to conduct a thorough review in order to maintain our standards and integrity. Song(s) under review will be temporarily suspended, pending review results. If you feel like your song(s) have been wrongfully flagged for review, please contact our music team at music@mysteereo.com.
