Music streaming company Spotify is changing the way it credits remixers on their platform. In a blog post on their site, the company said that streams of a remix will count towards the remixer’s monthly listens.
Remixers can now also appear in Popular and Latest Releases sections on their profiles. The change applies to remixes that were published post-2015.
According to Digital Music News:
Remixers will also gain much deeper insights. The quick result for remixers is a deeper focus on where their music is being played, and how their fans are engaging with their music.
This isn’t the only change the company has in store. The move comes as the company looks to go public later this year.
