Spotify To Stream Unlicensed Mixes, Will Edge Out SoundCloud

Posted at May 26th, 2016 | by Shivani Goel | in

At first, Spotify just seemed like yet another streaming service, but with SoundCloud Accounts being hacked and music being takedown off a lot of pages, DJ’s with mixes were worried about where to put their music up. MixCloud is an option, but it hasn’t really caught on.

Spotify announced some really great news at the International Music Summit in Ibiza. The streaming giant will be hosting DJ Mixes, doing the one thing that was the major appeal of SoundCloud. Now Spotify can be a great platform for artists to host their music and they’ve curated a deal through which artists played in mixes will receive royalty for their music as well. They released a statement saying that, “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.”

So DJ mixes being allowed on Spotify increases the contributions of bedroom DJs and such which overall influences a lot of factors in the music industry like radio charts and also allows small time DJs to get their music out there. I guess we’ll all be turning to Spotify soon as it’s also planning to launch in India, and even till there there are ways around it!
