(Hypebot) – The Music Business Association (Music Biz) has partnered with the Association for Electronic Music (AFEM) to launch the Electronic Music Workgroup.
Organized under Music Biz’s Information Technology Sector, the Electronic Music Workgroup will give representatives from throughout the electronic music sphere a place to gather and discuss ways to streamline commerce for DJs, producers, and rights-holders for DJ mixes, remixes, mashups, and original tracks for both live and online content. The workgroup will also examine the use of digital tools and platforms.
The Electronic Music Workgroup will be co-chaired by Lawrence and Bob Barbiere, President and COO of Dubset. Its first task will be to facilitate discussion and deliverables regarding the challenges in data integrity for accurate, transparent, and efficient royalty payments to electronic music producers, DJs, and artists.
“Our Electronic Music Workgroup will ensure that major issues facing the genre are addressed and dealt with by those who know the most about it, allowing all artists and companies in the space, not to mention the music business as a whole, to benefit," said Robby Towns, Director of Digital Strategy and Community at Music Biz.
