DJM-REC From Pioneer DJ Now Clears and Distributions Mixes Thanks To Dubset

Upload your mixes from DJM-REC, Pioneer’s iOS recording app for DJs, and use  the Dubset service to instantly identify rights holders and distribute your music.

Pioneer is partnering with Dubset Media to upload, clear, and distribute your mixes right from our iOS DJ-mix recording app, DJM-REC. Now, DJs can go from live set to instant legal distribution in a matter of minutes, for the first time.
The process feels frictionless, though it’s built on two innovative platforms designed with DJs in mind.  Dubset’s proprietary MixBANK platform manages the licenses and royalties for labels and publishers. Its proprietary MixSCAN technology can analyze DJ mixes or remixed audio files and identify the tracks used.
“This is a world first and we are excited to work with Dubset to bring it to market.” This new feature means that once you’ve uploaded a mix from DJM-REC to Dubset and the system has analyzed it for copyrights and cleared it, you will be able to distribute it legally to mu…

URSA Partners with Charity Bomb on Strange 80s Benefit to Promote Mental Health Culture Change in the Music Community

Artists often struggle with mental health issues, confronting limited resources and social stigma. To address this, new artist-centered streaming service URSA is partnering with the organizers of Strange 80s, a rock star-packed benefit in its third year, to support their efforts to put mental health first in the music community.

“We’re artists at URSA and we’ve seen firsthand the struggle fellow musicians endure due to depression and mental illness,” says URSA co-founder Chris Jones. “It’s our privilege to sponsor an event with the noble goal of saving lives and raising awareness on this issue and we look forward to continuing this partnership for years to come.”

“We built our streaming service to be as artist-centric as possible,” adds URSA co-founder Chad Royce. “Strange 80s is fighting for the same values we share, for seeing musicians as full-fledged people with complex psychological and personal needs. We want to support artists in all aspects of their life.”

CD Baby Partners with Automated Mastering Platform CloudBounce To Provide Pro-Sounding Polish For a Singles-Oriented Era

CD Baby users can now instantly master their tracks right from the CD Baby dashboard, thanks to a new partnership with automated mastering platform CloudBounce. The service costs only $4.90 a track, half of what other services are charging for this feature, making it accessible to artists, who are increasingly releasing singles, rather than entire albums of material.
“A large segment of the indie artist community is drastically changing how they release music. There is definitely a shift to releasing songs as soon as they are finished instead of the traditional album release,” notes Kevin Breuner, VP of Marketing at CD Baby. “As artists release more and more singles, this gives them mastering options that fit within their budget and workflow. CloudBounce ensures these artists’ master recordings have the final touches needed to sound totally pro.”
Instant, algorithm-driven mastering eliminates a long-standing recording bottleneck, mastering, which makes the difference between an iffy de…
