Swedish electronic label HMWL is set to become the first-mover among house and techno labels to give all its artists full online access to digital royalties and royalty analytics.
All the producers signed to HMWL or one of it’s imprints have now received a personal login that allows them to easily track every single stream and download generated by their tracks, sorted by different territories and services and see how their productions are being recouped over time.
Teaming up with Norwegian distribution service Phonofile, HMWL becomes one of the first labels to provide its artists with Phonofile’s newly developed artist access tool to online, fully segmented royalty reports.
This is what the label has said of the announcement:
“We’ve identified a problem within the dance community, particularly where house and techno artists are kept in the dark with no cheques, no royalty statements and no info at all about what their tracks are worth –especially in the case of third party licensing. Now we team up with Phonofile to give all our artists complete access."
