Only days after the ink dried on a deal between Dubset and Warner Music Group allowing instant copyright clearance on unofficial DJ performances, a symbolic mix has been released. The recorded set delivered by deadmau5 under his all-techno TESTPILOT alias at the 2018 edition of Electric Forest is now available in full.
deadmau5 (real name Joel Zimmerman) inaugurated the TESTPILOT with a 2014 release titled "Sunspot" on Richie Hawtin's Plus 8 imprint. It wasn't until two days ago that he made the presence of social media accounts for the alias known with posts teasing today's announcement.
For the past five years, Dubset have tasked themselves with innovating solutions to the copyright dilemmas faced by DJs and remixers. Their Warner agreement marks a significant milestone for the company, and it helped with the last of the rights clearances necessary for the TESTPILOT Electric Forest Mix to be legally distributed.
