The existing models for distributing DJ mixes is frankly painful with many DJs having to fight with take-down notices and copyright flags.
I am investigating ways to self-host and share DJ mixes with the care and attention of what a DJ would like to bring to the mix, and include a way to pay the artist/creator of the music in the mix.
- Dj Mixes anyone? Original idea
- My new self-hosted mix site
- Updated project blog post, May 2022
Currently I am Web Monetizing the whole of the site but I am going to change the audio player to HyperaudioLite and take advantage of the new feature to pay per section of the audio.
As a DJ, my main interest is to share the mix with as many as possible without limits and constraints. I will turn off WebMon for myself and use the payment providers of the artists instead. As I expect many artists have not heard of WebMon and so I recommend using payment providers of charities and non-profits instead (same ones Mozilla have used throughout the Mozilla virtual festival).
As more artists and labels start to support WebMontization and get payment pointers. It will be easy to reroute the payments to the new payment pointers and even split payments between groups/collaborations.
It's time #DJ #mixes were web native?
Not tied to platforms which hold DJs in contempt for their time, effort & creativity. Supportive to artists and labels; without stooping to #surveillancecapitalism
Lets mix #webmon, @hyperaudio & some banging tunes. https://cubicgarden.com/2022/03/08/web-monetised-dj-mixes-anyone/

- Creating their own mix site
- Sharing with djs as a potential sustainable future idea
- Suggest ideas around getting more DJs/artists/producers to setting up their own payment pointers
