Dubset Media announced today its strategic relationship with HFA’s Rumblefish, the best-in-class music licensing and administration company, that will, for the first time, enable the registration and tracking of mechanical royalties for DJ mixes and remixes. The arrangement enables a turnkey royalty payment system between the music publishers that license DJ mixes and the digital music services that generate royalties for their use of this content through the use of Rumblefish’s infrastructure.
The deal makes it possible for DJs to upload and legally stream original long-form mixes and single track remixes, creating a new revenue stream for artists whose recordings are sampled and the DJs who create the mixes and remixes. In addition, the new agreement is expected to enable Spotify listeners to stream radio shows and other user generated mixes that have not been previously legally available to music fans. The announcement was made today at the International Music Summit in Ibiza.
