Dubset launches MixBANK clearance/distribution platform

Dubset Media Holdings has launched MixBANK, a clearance and distribution platform for mix and remix content. It will deliver high-demand remixes via Apple Music, creating a new royalty stream for the artists whose music was sampled and the DJs who create the remixes, says Dubset CEO Stephen White.

Until now, traditional music services were unable to offer unofficial remix content due to licensing challenges. Dubset has solved that by identifying the copyrighted music used within the mix and clearing the use of that music through the appropriate labels and publishers, says White. 

“Although DJs were able to sample tracks during live performances, they were not allowed to legally distribute the recordings,” he adds. “Most of this content has lived in the shadows of unlicensed pirate distribution channels with neither the original artist, composer, nor the DJ getting compensated for their creative work.  We are thrilled to make this amazing new content available on Apple...
