In case you thought all anybody did at the International Music Summit in Ibiza was get blasted and dance to Balearic beats, this piece of momentous news from the conference will put the lie to that notion. Dubset Media Holdings has cut a deal with Spotify that will enable DJs anywhere on the planet to make both long-form DJ mixes and single-track remixes available through the streaming service. This marks a major advance both for DJs and music fans. It’s not too bad a move for Spotify either, as their Chief Strategy Officer Stefan Blom indicated when he stated, “This deal with Dubset enables us to serve fans of dance music with the mixes they crave while ensuring that artists, labels and publishers get paid fairly. It’s a great day for music fans all over the world.”
Dubset CEO Stephen White was equally enthusiastic about this development, saying, “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. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with the team at Spotify to deliver this content to music fans all over the world.” The mixes made possible by this deal should start popping up on Spotify later this year. Any DJs or remixers who want to avail themselves of this new opportunity should check the Dubset website for more info.
