Producers and DJs everywhere can breathe a little bit easier now when releasing remixes of popular songs. Spotify just announced that artists will now receive credit for their remixes being streamed on the platform. However, this new rule will only affect remixes that were released at the start of 2015. This change also allows artists to gain insight into how their tracks are doing by checking how often fans play and listen to them. Remixes can now be featured in their page’s newest release section and are also able to appear in all of Spotify’s popular charts.
All of us here are very excited that Spotify now recognizes the just how influential remixes can be in the music industry as they stretch across a broad array of genres and reach countless different audiences. Artists will finally get the recognition they deserve for breaking new boundaries through putting their own spins on songs everyone loves. Check out the official statement from Spotify here.
