Apple Music to compensate artists & rights holders in DJ mixes
14 Sep 2021
The Shazam tool can identify the songs within a DJ mix and directly pay individual creators, event promoters, mix suppliers like festivals, club nights and indie labels, and multiple artists who are part of the track.
Apple Music and Beats VP, Oliver Schusser, said the process took nearly a year of working with third parties to get the degree of recognition to an acceptable level.
The new feature allows subscribers to see the names of individual tracks, skip songs within the mix, listen with lossless audio on most mixes, and save them to their library for viewing offline.
