Dubset Media, which handles royalties for DJs, announced a strategic partnership with music licensing and administration company Rumblefish. The deal enables “a turnkey royalty payment system” between music publishers.
“Publishing administration for DJ mixes and remixes has historically been a very manual, painful process,” Stephen White, CEO of Dubset, said. “This strategic relationship represents a major milestone in our efforts to construct a comprehensive royalty tracking and payment system for DJ mixes and remixes in the modern music business. Dubset and Rumblefish can now administer DJ mixes and remixes in the same way they do standard mechanical royalties, without having to implement any new processes or systems.”
“Our relationship with Dubset reinforces Rumblefish as the database of record for the music publishing community. It will enhance our collection and distribution of mechanical royalties generated by streaming mixes and remixes on digital music services,” Michael Simon, President of Rumblefish, added. “We’re thrilled with this new arrangement.”
Dubset is headquartered in San Francisco with offices in New York and Los Angeles. Rumblefish is the rights administration division of The Harry Fox Agency.
