DUBSET, specializing in remix and DJ clearances, is teaming with BEATPORT to allow select remixes cleared through its MIXBANK platform be made available for download on the site. The partnership will create opportunities for DJs to source new edits, flips and alternate versions of songs to be purchased and used in their live sets and recordings.
“The next generation of amazing producers and remixers are gravitating to new technologies like DUBSET’s MIXBANK and we are excited to open up this unique channel for exposure and distribution on BEATPORT,” BEATPORT CEO ROBB McDANIELS said.
“We’ve worked very closely with streaming services, as well as DJ hardware and software makers, to create a new ecosystem for mix content," Added BEATPORT VP Distribution DAVID NICOMINI. "Unofficial remixes have been a fundamental part of DJ sets and creating a legal marketplace to source them is an inflection point for these artists. This will be great for DJs and their audiences.”
“We will be creating branded crates based on BEATPORT’s amazing charts, with the tracks available via MIXBANK to cross-correlate what’s clearable," DUBSET CEO STEPHEN WIHITE said, You end up with a set of trusted BEATPORT-ranked content that is available in the DUBSET system. DJs won’t have to go back and forth to search and poke around. One place will give you access to it all.”
The companies plan further enhancements and integration points over the course of the next year.
