MetaPop is the new venture from Matthew Adell (former CEO of Beatport) and Michael Mukhin (former CTO of Boomrat). MetaPop is the premier global provider of Remix rights management, licensing, tracking, distribution and royalty services for Remixers and Rights Holders.
There are millions of Fan Remixes across the web that are not being
monetized properly by original rights holders or their creators. Fan
Remixes are taken down haphazardly by “anti-piracy” services with no
regard to the value they create, and thus, creativity is being stifled,
and money is being lost. MetaPop research has shown:
There are over 8 million remixes on youtube that are currently not monetized for the original artist nor the remixer
There are over 100,000 remixes on Beatport that are currently not monetized for the original artist
10% of all music listening is to remixes on Youtube
On Soundcloud, it may be as high as 50%, depending on what the original content is
Tear for Fears “Pale Shelter”
Original version has fewer than 10,000 plays
There are 162 unmonetized “Fan Remixes” of the track
“Fan Remixes” have been played over 250,000 times
is the solution to this problem. MetaPop’s Proprietary Remix Finder
technology locates Fan Remixes on platforms such as YouTube, SoundCloud,
and more. Metapop’s Remix Finder technology indicates there are over
2.5 million Fan Remixes online generating a billion plays month.
By connecting rights holders and remixers
MetaPop can monetize Fan Remixes for Rights Holders, creating an
entirely new revenue stream for labels from Fan Remixes and their plays.
MetaPop is free to use for both rights holders and remixers.
this rapidly growing digital music space, the creation and demand for
remixes continues to grow. We believe that both rights holders and
creators need to collaborate and MetaPop is the solution. Our unique
approach allows us to locate and track fan remixes across the web, with a
particular focus on monetizing Youtube and Soundcloud. We will also
promote that content, encourage engagement and make this amazing music
available for further distribution. Together we can open new channels
to create and release great music. Once labels have exclusively
partnered with MetaPop they no longer need to focus on takedowns and
“anti-piracy” effort, and instead can focus on making great music that
makes money.” – Matthew Adell
MetaPop has signed over 11,000 labels to date.
Last week MetaPop became the first platform in the world to clear and monetize Fan Remixes.
In partnership with Tommie Sunshine’s Brooklyn Fire Records, its
existing members remixed The Vandal Squad’s “Fresh 2 Death”. Those
remixes have been monetized and have begun to appear on the MetaPop YouTube channel.
Furthermore, MetaPop is already working
with over 800 additional remixers, and some of the most popular remix
artists online like Hood Internet, Tommie Sunshine, K Theory, DJ
Silverfox, Luxxury, The Reflex, and more. MetaPop is also working with
Symphonic Distribution, which manages distribution and oversees
royalties for more than 1400 artists and labels, including Bass Nectar
and Heavy Artillery Recordings.
