An announcement from the International Music Summit in Ibiza is causing a more than a buzz right now in the music industry, especially in the DJ industry.
“DJs have long been recognized as the greatest curators of music in the world. We look forward to working with Dubset and the biggest and best DJs in the world to continue to lead the industry by providing our consumers with the best content available in the market.”
Pat Shah, the head of original content licensing at Spotify
This is really big news, especially for all of you frustrated bedroom DJs and producers. Dubset has just struck a deal with Spotify allowing long-form DJ mixes and single track remixes to be legally uploaded and streamed on one of the biggest music streaming platforms out on the market. This news is coming shortly after Apple and Dubset struck a similar deal.
The agreement also states that Spotify subscribers are now able to stream radio shows and user-generated mixes that were previously unavailable.
“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. 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.”
Stephen White, the CEO of Dubset
“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.”
Stefan Blom, Chief Strategy Officer of Spotify
