Today at SXSW, Dubset Media has announced their new partnership with Apple Music that will now allow thousands of remixed songs and DJ mixes to be available to the public through Apple music streaming, and there’s more… Many of these tracks were previously unavailable due to copyright issues. So a few tracks that will be streamed will be heard for the first time for some listeners.
This new partnership will make Apple music the first music streaming service to give out unlicensed tracks. For those who don’t know, Dubset is a music distributor that works with other music services with content. What makes Dubset so different is that they use a dope technology called MixBank that analyze songs and is able to identify recordings inside the file and properly pay both record labels and the music publishers according to Billboard.
As for Apple this is really good news. With Spotify close to 30 million subscribers and Apple music right behind them just passing 11 million subscribers the music game is changing. This new partnership could be what apple music needed to put them over the top at number 1.
“The agreement with Apple, and agreements with other services to follow, are sure to well received by remixers and DJs. “Remixes are a huge part of our culture - they allow DJs and fans to put our own creative spin on music,” says superstar DJ Steve Aoki. “Apple working with Dubset now is a really simple solution to something traditionally complex, and allows everyone to make money on this content for the first time.”
