Apple Music begins adding unofficial remixes

Apple Music has begun allowing unofficial remixes, TechCrunch reports. Apple struck a deal with Dubset in March which heralded the move to allowing remixes and DJ mixes to be included in Apple Music, although it’s taken until now for any remixes to actually appear on Apple Music. Unofficial remixes have traditionally been surrounded by licensing issues, since they can feature multiple songs that require multiple royalty payments to different artists and labels; Dubset brings a proprietary technology to the table that can analyze remixes so appropriate royalties can be paid, allowing Apple Music and other services to stream them while complying with copyright requirements. Only single-track remixes appear to be available on Apple Music at this point, although Dubset’s CEO indicates that multi-song mixsets are coming soon.
