Remix Hits Inks Deal With Sony Will It Revolutionize Sampling

first_imgRemix Hits is a Nashville, Tenn.-based company that has developed a technology for identifying even small snippets of copyrighted music that has been used in a new recording, even if the sample has been heavily modified. But they also developed a licensing platform so those who want to sample copyrighted material in their own work can pre-purchase licenses to use the music legally. It does this by selling the stems, or elements of a song, such as vocals, guitar, synth, or percussion.The company recently closed a deal with Sony Music to license stems from their catalog, which provides an avenue for those looking for remix or sample a song to do so legally and give the original copyright holder compensation. However, musicians must release their new creations through Remix Hits Platform distribution service.While there are still questions about how this service will work, including whether or not music created using Remix Hits-purchased stems can be sold or released outside their platform, and how much of Sony’s extensive catalog will be available for licensing, it could provide a much-needed solution for unauthorized sampling and remixing.Amazon Music Mobile App Users Can Now Ask AlexaRead more News Remix Hits Inks Deal With Sony: Will It Revolutionize Sampling? New deal allows remixers to pre-purchase licenses for music used in remixes and samplesRenée FabianGRAMMYs Sep 28, 2017 – 5:27 pm Remixing and sampling pre-existing songs has become a big part of making music these days, but it’s also a gray area for copyright. While for some artists it may be an honor to have their work used in a brand new creation, the original copyright holders need compensation for their work when it’s borrowed. This is where a company such as the startup Remix Hits might come in.

While it wasn’t to be, his fourth album, the aptly titled A Matter Of Time, earned a nomination for Best Reggae Album. The experience also earned the Jamaican artist a little extra wisdom.”Winning a GRAMMY was definitely a goal when I started out. It’s in the back of your mind always, you know, maybe one day I’ll get that GRAMMY award, I’ll be nominated. So I guess I thought about it but I was not obsessing on it,” Protoje told us in his first-time nominee interview. “I didn’t expect to get nominated on my fourth [album] because I thought the third was the sure thing. That’s how it goes sometimes. It just works out that way. I was delighted when I heard that [A Matter of Time] was nominated. Things happen, and when it’s your time. You don’t have to worry about anything. Take your time and see what happens.”With talent and wisdom well beyond her years, breakout R&B phenom H.E.R.’s sees her five GRAMMY nominations, including Best New Artist, Album Of The Year and Best R&B Album, as an affirmation.”It feels like I’m exactly where I’m supposed to be,” she told us in her recent first-time nominee interview. “It’s so easy to question your art, even to question what you’re doing, to question the path that you’re on. But this is such confirmation for me; “you’re exactly where you need to be, you’re doing all the right things.” It just feels amazing, it feels like I found my objective and I’m fulfilling it.

Always a class act, Monaé exuded the perfect pairing of humility and pride in her reaction to the nomination.”This album is so much bigger than me, it’s not about me, it’s about a community,” Monaé said, live on the air. “Being a young, black, queer woman in America, there was something I had to say, a group of people I wanted to celebrate, and I’m happy to be representing them.

Bandcamp To Launch Vinyl Pressing Service

first_img Facebook Set to launch this year, the streaming platform’s service aims to streamline the “financing, production, and fulfillment of vinyl records”Rachel BrodskyGRAMMYs Apr 18, 2019 – 11:25 am Streaming platform Bandcamp is already a major destination for artists to upload their music for all to hear. Now, Bandcamp has announced plans to launch an in-house vinyl pressing service for bands who use their platform.Not only that, but bands and artists can even crowdfund for vinyl releases, according to Pitchfork. And, should they cover the minimum cost of creating the records, Bandcamp will press the vinyl, print the packaging, then ship it to customers.”The new service eliminates risk, since fans’ orders finance the pressing, rather than the artist or label,” Bandcamp says on their website. “It eliminates hassle, since we press the records, print the packaging, and ship to fans (and fulfill digital too). It offers complete control, with the design and pricing up to the artist, and Bandcamp taking no ownership of the record. And it produces a quality result: our manufacturing partner has over 60 years experience pressing vinyl, so the records look, and sound, great.” Bandcamp To Launch Vinyl Pressing Service bandcamp-launch-vinyl-pressing-service Twitter Email https://twitter.com/Felixixix666/status/1118577210976296961 Bandcamp To Launch Vinyl Pressing Service So far, four artists have utilized the service: Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah, who released Astral Recall, Juliette Jade, who released Constellation, Mesarthim, who released Ghost Condensate and Jim Guthrie, who released Below (Original Soundtrack).Additionally, a few bands, artists and labels have taken to social media to express their thoughts on Bandcamp’s latest development in vinyl.The service is set to launch later this year.

Netflix looking into study showing spike in suicides after 13 Reasons Why

first_img Tags Netflix has addressed a study looking at teen suicide and its show 13 Reasons Why. Justin Sullivan / Getty Images On the heels of a study exploring a rise in teen suicide among boys following the Netflix show 13 Reasons Why in 2017, the streaming service says it’s looking into the research.”This is a critically important topic and we have worked hard to ensure that we handle this sensitive issue responsibly,” Netflix said.The study, out Monday from the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, found that the suicide rate among boys 10-17 increased in the month after the show came out. The study didn’t confirm whether any of those boys had watched the show.”The release of 13 Reasons Why was associated with a significant increase in monthly suicide rates among US youth aged 10 to 17 years,” the study concludes. “Caution regarding the exposure of children and adolescents to the series is warranted.” Netflix said the research is at odds with another recent study, this one conducted by the University of Pennsylvania. “We’ve just seen this study and are looking into the research, which conflicts with last week’s study from the University of Pennsylvania,” a spokesperson said by email. That study found that “viewers who stopped watching the second season exhibited greater suicide risk and less optimism about the future than those who continued to the end.” The study went on to say that those who watched to the end reported a decline in “suicide ideation and self-harm.” They also might be more likely to help a suicidal person. The premise of 13 Reasons Why related to the suicide of a teenage girl. In May 2017, Netflix said it would include an additional warning at the beginning of the first episode, as well as “strengthen the messaging and resource language in the existing cards for episodes that contain graphic subject matter, including the URL 13ReasonsWhy.info.”If you’re struggling with negative thoughts or suicidal feelings, here are 13 suicide and crisis intervention hotlines you can use to get help.You can also call these numbers:US: The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline can be reached at 1-800-273-8255. UK: The Samaritans can be reached at 116 123. AU: Lifeline can be reached at 13 11 14.  0 Post a comment Digital Media Wellness Share your voice Netflixlast_img read more

Apple Pays now your ticket to ride New Yorks subways

first_img The promise of contactless payments is to change all of that. All you have to do is wave your iPhone or other supported device near a turnstile to pay. No more lines. No more cards to keep track of. Transit may end up being the most popular use for mobile payments, the concept of using your phone to pay for goods and services. Apple, Google and Samsung have all pushed their own payment systems, but they’ve been slow to take off with users in the US. But it’s hard to argue with the convenience of using a phone to enter a hectic New York subway station. More than two-thirds of New York subway riders have missed a train while waiting in line to reload a transit card, according to a poll by Visa. About 83 percent of people surveyed said they have had trouble getting their transit card to work at the turnstile, Visa said, and two-thirds have left or forgotten funds on a transit card, at an average of $35.10 lost.  22 Photos You can now use your iPhone to pay for NYC transit rides Aug 31 • iPhone XR vs. iPhone 8 Plus: Which iPhone should you buy?

Starting Friday, you’ll be able to access the New York subway and bus system by scanning your iPhone or Apple Watch. The New York Metro Transportation Authority that day is turning on contactless payments in some subway stations and buses in the city as part of its new OMNY system. You’ll be able to pay for single rides using your iPhone, Android phone, wearables like those from Fitbit, or tap-to-pay credit and debit cards. Contactless payments will replace the New York MetroCard, the much-hated, yellow, plastic card used exclusively on New York transit since 2003. The magnetic stripes on those cards often stop working, causing riders to repeatedly swipe them at turnstiles and slowing down entrance into a station. There are also sometimes long lines at terminals to add money to cards or to purchase new MetroCards.

Tokyo, London, Beijing and other cities around the globe have launched the service over the past few years, while Portland earlier this month became the first US city to integrate the Apple Pay Express Transit system into its new contactless payments system.Apple CEO Tim Cook said last month that the MTA would begin rollout of Apple Pay in early summer. “As we’ve seen in places like London, Tokyo and Shanghai, contactless entry into transit systems helps to spur broader Apple Pay adoption, and we believe this will get even more people using Apple Pay in the United States,” Cook said during a call about the company’s quarterly earnings.Apple Pay on the MTAThe Apple Pay mobile payments service initially started in late 2014 as a way to pay for items in stores without taking out a wallet. It now works with transit, loyalty cards and tickets. Cook has famously said Apple plans to “kill cash.”And Ticketmaster has just announced that it’ll be accepting Apple Pay for ticket purchases on the web and through the Ticketmaster app, and over 50 of its entertainment and sporting event venues are launching contactless tickets this year, including the vast majority of NFL stadiums. For transit, Apple has introduced something called Apple Pay Express Transit. You need to update your phone or watch to Apple’s latest software — iOS 12.3 and watchOS 5.2.1, respectively — and select your default payment card for transit before you get to the station. On your iPhone, open Settings, tap Wallet & Apple Pay, tap Express Transit Card, then select a credit or debit card, and authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID. You also can open Wallet on your iPhone, tap on a credit or debit card, tap on […] in the top right corner, tap Express Transit Settings, select a credit or debit card, and authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID.apple-mta-nyc-tap-to-pay-2Before using an iPhone or Apple Watch to pay for single ride on New York transit, you have to select your default payment card.  Ben Fox Rubin/CNET Once there, just place your iPhone or Apple Watch near the reader, and you’re automatically charged for a single ride. You don’t have to wake or unlock your device, double click, open an app or even use FaceID or TouchID. That makes the process speedy. Express transit works with the iPhone SE, iPhone 6S or iPhone 6s Plus or later and the Apple Watch Series 1 and 2 or later.The process is similar for Android users. You can ask the Google Assistant for real-time transit information  (“Hey Google, when is the next train?”), and in the coming weeks, Google Maps will show you which routes accept Google Pay. You’ll also be able to add a credit or debit card right from the Google Maps app. For Samsung Galaxy devices, using Samsung Pay on the MTA is the same as using it in a store. Swipe up to activate, quickly authenticate with your fingerprint, iris or PIN, and then hold your phone near the MTA’s OMNY reader.For now, the MTA only lets you buy single rides, and tap-to-pay only works on buses in Staten Island and on the 4, 5 and 6 trains between Grand Central and Atlantic Avenue-Barclays Center in Brooklyn.By the end of next year, all New York subway stations and bus routes will accept Apple Pay and other contactless payments. And the MTA will roll out different fare options, not just single rides.In 2023, the entire system will be MetroCard-free. Originally published at 3 a.m. PTUpdate at 11:18 a.m. PT: Adds Fitbit.
