Following the rumor of SoundCloud's restrictions on unlicensed DJ mixes, Dubset Media Holdings has reached an agreement with Spotify to stream unlicensed mixes.
The deal will allow DJs to upload and legally stream original long-form mixes and single track remixes on its services. With the deal, this will create a new revenue stream for artists whose recordings are sampled as well as the DJs who create the mixes and remixes.
“This is a major milestone for DJs and music fans all over the world. Our technology platform makes it possible for us to identify and pay rights holders in DJ mixes, making this enormously popular music genre available on the world's most popular streaming service for the very first time,” said Stephen White, CEO of Dubset.
The new agreement will enable Spotify listeners to stream radio shows and other user generated mixes that have previously been illegal to many music fans.
