Uploading unofficial remixes

Hi guys,

 

Im a starting producer and obviously I use samples or vocals from which I dont own the copyrights. Now before yesterday there wasnt a platform to upload these songs I produced to. Now I came across this post from The Fader which says that uploading unofficial remixes to spotify is available now. Does anyone know if this is true and can everyone do this? Thanks in advance.

That sounds too good to be true. I don't know enough to give an official answer, but in my opinion, I still think you'd have to abide all copyright laws before you uploaded it to Spotify otherwise you could run into a lot of trouble.

Thanks for the reply, but the point is that there are a lot of amateur producers who are trying to pave their way. They make music and ofcourse they use vocals or samples that are not theirs. This way they can get known faster.

But there is no platform for them to upload these songs, expect soundcloud (if it doesnt get removed). 

Lot of producers who got big started out this way, for example: Kaytranada, Cashmere Cat, Lido, Flume, Ta-Ku etc. 

And if you think about, why cant spotify just pay the labels who own the rights/songs as if the original song was played. I think that would bring a lot of people to spotify, because now people who want to listen to unofficial remixes are on soundcloud. Some songs can easily get over a million plays.

This may be the wrong place to post this.
Is there a way to request unofficial remixes for Spotify to pursue.
For example, there is a remix of a Phantogram song called Fall in Love by Until the Ribbon Breaks. Spotify has the catalogues of both these artists, but not the remix of the song. I find that odd. Who owns the song? Who can give permission to Spotify to stream it?
In addition, there is Bjork's All is Full of Love (Plaid Remix), which was actually released as a B-side to the single. Doesn't that count as "official."
Either way, those are two of my favorite remixes that I secretly like better than the original songs.
Am I powerless in this regard, especially since the latest news states Spotify will not be acquiring SoundCloud?
