NEW YORK, March 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Dubset Media Holdings revealed today that one of the world's top artists, Steve Aoki, has joined an impressive roster of the world's top DJs, including superstars like David Guetta, Tiesto, and an exciting array of up-and-comers like Arno Cost, Chainsmokers, Classixx, The Knocks, Jimmy Edgar and MAKJ, utilizing the company's mix registry and MixSCAN® identification and distribution system. Thousands of DJs are now uploading their live sets, radio shows, and mixtapes to the first technology platform that can identify the underlying rights holders within a mix, clear the rights to stream, distribute to licensed music services, and track streaming consumption. Dubset then processes royalties to the underlying rights holders of the music sampled as well as the DJ.
"We are thrilled to have Steve Aoki and the team at Dim Mak and Deckstar supporting the Dubset platform. The response we have received from both superstar DJs and rising stars in the DJ community to MixSCAN® has been fantastic," said Rachel Springate of Dubset Media Holdings. "In addition to artists like Guetta and Tiesto uploading their entire history of podcasts and radio shows, we are ingesting a large volume of mixes every day to our MixSCAN® registry, which for the very first time offers a path for artists and other rights holders to get paid for the use of their content in DJ mixes and other derivative works in the streaming universe."
"Dubset offers a solution that solves a huge problem for the industry and enables DJs to monetize and distribute their mixes without having to feel like we are taking advantage of other artists or worry about take down notices," said Steve Aoki. "As DJs we want to focus on our craft and make great music for our fans. We very much want to compensate the artists whose music we utilize and Dubset makes that happen."
Under development and trials for several years, MixSCAN® is currently distributing mix content that generates DJ revenues and rights holder royalties on Thefuture.fm, Facebook and Twitter, with additional partners expected to be announced in the coming months.
Stephen White, CEO of Dubset added, "DJs are growing weary of take down notices and are beginning to recognize the liability sites like SoundCloud create for them. We recently partnered with the Association for Electronic Music (AFEM) to help develop their 'Get Played, Get Paid' campaign as a means to help tackle this problem."
Through this relationship, Dubset and the AFEM will be working to ensure content can be cleared and distributed to legal music services. Mark Lawrence, Chief Executive of the AFEM commented: "Ensuring rights holders and music creators are paid when their tracks get paid in online mixes is a critical objective for AFEM. DJs are key curators of electronic music and tastemakers for new music discovery. Together with Dubset we are working hard to make getting played and getting paid a reality for every DJ, producer and artist."
