Apple Music Adds Support for User-Uploaded Unofficial Remixes from Dubset

Apple Music today gained support for user-uploaded unofficial remixes, according to TechCrunch. Unofficial remixes are mixes by DJs typically uploaded by the artists themselves, but major labels choose not to upload them to music services because of rights issues. SoundCloud is one of the few services that can offer support for unofficial remixes.

In March, Apple struck a deal with Dubset, a music rights management firm that matches snippets in a DJ's mix to a database and pays out royalties to the original rights holders. Spotify also struck a deal with Dubset, but did so in May. Spotify has also gained unofficial remixes.

The first unofficial remix is DJ Jazzy Jeff's remix of Anderson .Paak.'s "Room in Here." Unofficial singles are only the first step of Apple's agreement with Dubset. TechCrunch notes that multi-song mixes that DJs use during their shows are also on the way to the service.

Why doesn't Apple implement a notification system so we know when an artist we follow uploads new material!?

I think this will simply result in search results being watered down with countless remixes.

That's all it should take, for John Bonham to posthumously become the richest man in the world.

...unwittingly providing percussion to tens of thousands of hit pop & hip hop songs since 1979 without collecting a single cent in royalties, while Zeppelin get hit with lawsuit after lawsuit...
