Get Paid When Your Music Is Played! Let's Talk About Aslice

Zak (DVS1)

Moderator: Dave Clarke

For many decades, there hasn’t been an equitable collection system for artists who get their music played by DJs at events, whether underground sweatbox clubs or bells and whistles festivals. Many artists are naturally thrilled to be recognized and played out by their peers, but this potential exposure doesn’t feed an artist or allow future investments into the studio. Things have also been compounded by radio royalties shifting down per play as market share gets more divided, meaning much fewer earnings per play. The coronavirus pandemic has also highlighted that artists couldn’t truly live off negligible royalties while having no gigs. American DJ, producer, and label owner DVS1 took this break as an opportunity to focus on the problem of the imbalance between DJ and producer incomes and came up with a service called Aslice. By establishing a new revenue share, Aslice is rectifying this topsy turvy ecosystem to get money directly to the music makers and provide a tax-deductible way that the DJ can donate a portion of their fee across all the tracks played. We ask all about this incredible system called Aslice, what it means for the DJs that pay and the artists that finally get paid. And how this equal ecosystem will expand and bring dance music producers in line with the plays they have at events in almost real-time.
