Spotify And Apple Music Dubset Deals Start To Pay Off
Startup Dubset Media is trying to license the kind of remixes and mash-ups previously only available on SoundCloud for other streaming services, with Apple Music and Spotify already on its slate of distribution deals.
TechCrunch reported that one of the first Dubset-licensed remixes has gone live on Spotify and Apple Music: a DJ Jazzy Jeff remix of Anderson Paak’s ‘Room In Here’. Interestingly, on Spotify the track’s rightsholder is listed as Dubset Media.
“Mixes are coming next,” Dubset boss Stephen White told TechCrunch. “Content owners have been very supportive. The publishing and label deals we have under license provides a large catalogue to work with.”
