Remix Hits opens Stem Marketplace with Hit Songs and Legal Distribution for Fan Remixes

Remix Hits

Remix Hits has gone live with their hit song 'stem marketplace.' Music producers can now buy iconic songs in the form of a remix-focused, 'Kontakt' stem instrument, called Release.

Users can visit Remixhits.com and purchase song packs, which will give them access to all of the stems (the isolated instrument tracks and vocals). The first wave of available song packs is comprised of classic hits from Sony Music, including: TLC's No Scrubs, The Outfield's Your Love, The Guess Who's American Woman, Europe's The Final Countdown, and several more. Many more songs from a variety of genres - from past generations to now - are in the pipeline for release.

Remix Hits is also offering a free download of its stem instrument for Kontakt Player, Release, which comes with songs to get you started remixing.

For Phase 1 of the remix model, music producers will be able to purchase songs, create remixes, and upload their creations to Remix Hits Label Services. In order to have their music on SoundCloud and YouTube, users may submit their remixes for distribution by Remix Hits via www.remixhits.com/submissions. As part of the EULA, users cannot upload to their own YouTube, SoundCloud, or any other digital service provider, though they may repost/share to their social media from the Remix Hits channels, which have been whitelisted by Sony. Slated for phase 2 of their launch, Remix Hits is currently negotiating terms with labels and publishers to facilitate the distribution of remixes through the other major digital service providers and allow music producers to share in the royalties generated by their remixes.

Remix Hits wants to convey how important it is for users to respect the current terms of the end-user license agreement (EULA). "We're trying to show the music industry that our community will gladly support a sensible and legal remix model," says CEO Sam Brooker. "We've been given a huge opportunity by forward-thinking artists, labels, and publishers who are willing to give this a try and we want to treat their content with respect." Remix Hits is asking users to abide by the terms they've negotiated. Tangibly, this means users have to stick to releasing through the channels outlined above. "We're working very hard to open up more major distribution channels so that our users will soon be able to have their work on streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, Tidal, YouTube, and more," Brooker continues. "Remix Hits knows this is a very new territory for many, so music producers and rights holders should feel free to reach out with any questions if they are unsure of their rights."

"At Remix Hits, we've poured our hearts and souls into bridging the gap between rights holders and music producers. Through years of research, development, and partnerships, we've devised a model that is a win-win for both sides of the market," explains Brooker. "For rights holders, we offer a new, mass licensing opportunity, a new revenue stream, and a secure, trackable release of their artists' stems. For music producers, we offer the legal hit content they want and cleared distribution channels for release. We are hopeful that our launch is going to encourage a remix movement that unites our music community."
