Beatroot Music is the only Black-owned music distributor in the U.S. and part of the Made in Memphis Entertainment (MIME) family of companies. Beatroot is dedicated to re-establishing Memphis as a key music industry hub while expanding its influence around the world, all while developing and promoting diverse talent on both the creative and business sides of the industry. Beatroot is also dedicated to cultivating the next generation of music business executives both in Memphis and around the world.
The main component of Beatroot’s success is their dedication to putting artists first. Unlike many other distributors, Beatroot is selective about its roster of music, and provides access to a full range of other services to their artists to best showcase their talent including graphic design, playlist pitching, sync placement, digital ad campaigns, and more.
MIME’s family of companies includes MIME Records, MIME Publishing (an independent music publishing company that handles David Porter’s legendary songwriting catalog and other copyrights of some of the most sought after young producers in hip-hop and R&B), Heavy Hitters Music (a film, TV, and ad sync company with an all-female creative team and Emmy-winning music catalog), and 4U Recording (a state-of-the-art recording studio in Memphis with more branches opening soon).
