Data Collected From Music’s Top 25 Streamed Mixes

As determined via search on SoundCloud, YouTube, and other streaming sites utilizing the search term “Dance Mix”


From the advent of vinyl, to the meteoric rise of dance festivals, mix music has become an important part of today’s music culture. Mixes and remixes now represent one of music’s most listened-to categories yet due to the challenges associated with licensing, this music has been prevented from being offered by most of the world’s largest music services.

A major shift in music is about to take place. Dubset, a technology-based licensing specialist, has developed an identification and licensing platform enabling the rights holders of the tracks being mixed and sampled to clear it. This allows for legally compliant streaming on all music services unlocking a massive new royalty flow for the underlying artists, labels, publishers, and DJs.

It begs the question though…what’s in those mixes? Each month Dubset will locate the most popular mixed music in the world, thoroughly analyze it, and share its findings. Full transparency to the “who” and “what” is being listened to (often royalty-free) by millions of music fans a day.
