When you distribute to SoundCloud, upon receiving the content, the channel automatically generates a new topic profile in which it places it. This may lead to having two artist profiles for the same artist if there was already one.

Once both profiles are synchronized, you will only have one that you can directly manage yourself. This is a good practice that will enhance the fan experience, allowing them to enjoy all the artist catalogues in the same place.
Also, once both profiles are merged, the new artist ID can be added to the platform to avoid mapping issues in future releases.
Soundcloud’s premier program is intended for purely independent artists who retain 100% of their rights-- not for signed artists, or artists/labels with a current distribution deal. Content that is distributed by another party is not eligible for monetization through our Premier program.
So, if an artist is also a Pro Unlimited user in Soundcloud, in order to avoid copyright issues/blocks, we'd recommend advising the artist to monetize content via Omziki Distribution. If the artist is planning to monetize via their premium program, they shall not distribute to either Soundcloud via the supply chain.

Unfortunately, for other territories, it would be necessary to upload the track manually.
