Dubset Media Holdings announced today that the company has partnered with Apple Music to provide hundreds of DJ mixes to the streaming platform, including three never-before-heard DJ sets from Steve Aoki, Sigala and DJ Suss One. These mixes celebrate the availability of the millions of tracks in Dubset’s MixBank service including those from major label imprints as well as renowned indies like Stones Throw, XL Recordings, Ninja Tune, Domino, Mozzy Records, !K7, Warp Records, Monstercat, Last Kings, Tommy Boy, Anjunabeats, Fool’s Gold, and Axtone among others. DJs all over the world can now tap into this massive library to create their own mixes and are encouraged to check the available catalog by utilizing Dubset’s MixBANK Catalog Search, which is accessible with any free MixBANK account.
“These incredible mixes are a fitting celebration of our shared goal of providing innovative mixes for music fans, while ensuring artists are fairly compensated for their work,” said Dubset Media CEO Stephen White. “Our technology is opening new avenues of revenue for rights holders, artists and DJs, and allows fans around the world to not only listen but to create and distribute new mixed and remixed content in a legal way.”
“How amazing is it to be able to quickly and freely throw together a mix of tracks with no clearances or paperwork required?” said Steve Aoki. “It’s the dawn of a new era. I can’t wait to see what aspiring DJs and Aoki fans do with my music in their own sets.”
Grammy-nominated Mr. Aoki’s 2011-2017 retrospective megamix showcases work from seven years worth of albums and singles which feature his collaborations with today’s biggest stars including Gucci Mane, Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty & Migos, Fall Out Boy, and many more. Meanwhile, UK Platinum hit radio artist Sigala provides a 30-minute house mix of some of his favorite tracks of 2017 while working in a couple throwback 90’s hip hop and R&B jams.
“Dubset’s new platform is revolutionary!” says Sigala. “It’s so good to easily upload a mix of tracks direct for everyone to hear, and to be the first UK artist to have a mix go live is a massive honor. The future is here!”
To round out the mixes, veteran radio jockey DJ Suss One put together a tribute to classic hip hop featuring the works of many of the all-time greats. Listeners may know DJ Suss One from his current residencies at New York City’s Power 105 and SiriusXM’s Hip Hop Nation – two of the most influential hip hop outlets in the world.
Dubset’s MixBANK technology platform adeptly serves rights holders by solving the complex problem of identifying the underlying musical recordings sampled within DJ sets and remixes. Once the tracks are identified, the platform determines the label and publishing rights holders (a DJ set could have as many as 100 different rights holders), and simultaneously clears the DJ sets or remix across all rights holders within minutes. Dubset enables record labels and music publishers to set permissions for access via a simple rules-based system which enables catalogs to be efficiently monetized and precludes the need to conduct time consuming searches and initiate claims.
