Music Mondays – Sony Music signs licensing deal so DJs can more easily (and legally) make remixes

For years, DJs, producers, and remixers have had to rely on non-legal stems to create mixes of popular songs.  Now, music creators may finally have a legal way to create and legally distribute remixes.

Following a landmark deal with Sony Music, Nashville-based music tech company Remix Hits announced the creation of a hit song ‘stem marketplace.’

Through their remix licensing model, Remix Hits will offer DJs, producers, and remixers the ability to purchase and download licensed ‘stems’ (isolated instrument tracks and vocals) from Sony Music.  Creators can then legally release their mixes via the Remix Hits Platform.

In addition, said the company, the remix licensing model includes a revenue share plan to fairly compensate rights holders.
