MetaPop, a provider of remix rights management, licensing, tracking, distribution and royalty services for remixers and rights holders, will now distribute and monetise fan remixes on Spotify, Apple Music and Tidal.
The company claims to be the first to monetise fan remixes on these platforms, adding to its existing distribution on YouTube.
By connecting rights holders and remixers, MetaPop aims to monetise fan remixes for rights holders, creating a new revenue stream for labels from fan remixes and their plays. Founded by Matthew Adell (former CEO of Beatport) and Michael Mukhin (former CTO of Boomrat) the service is free to use for both rights holders and remixers.
The firm gives remixers access to a catalogue of nearly 100,000 pre-cleared tracks, with hundreds of new tracks being added daily. Remixers are able to remix these pre-cleared tracks and upload them to YouTube directly for monetisation. When distributing to Spotify and Apple Music, rights holders such as labels and artists, then select which remixes they wish to upload for monetisation.
MetaPop has deals in place with thousands of labels, and has already published more than 100 remixes for monetisation on YouTube and currently has over 30 remixes being monetised on Spotify and Apple Music.
