Payment For Streams

First of all we would like to wish everybody here a Happy new Year, and a good start to 2022.

TuneSick operates a completely transparent payment system when it comes to royalties for streams. Unlike other systems, our system is very simple and easy for everybody involved to understand. Every artist gets paid the same* standard rate for their streams, there is no difference, favoritism or bias when it comes to remuneration. We send out a monthly email statement to anybody who is due payment. Sometimes this goes direct to the artist or it goes direct to the record label or distributor responsible for them. The distributor or label will then forward any payments due, it’s as straightforward as that.

The rate of pay per stream works like an interest rate. The rate can fluctuate up and down each month, depending on the financial environment and financial situation of the company – just like interest rates go up and down depending on the state of the economy and other economic factors such as wages, prices and taxes. All of this works a bit like a music ecosystem, and is done to keep the platform going so that we can continue to afford to pay artists. However, one thing for sure is that the interest rate / rate of pay for streams will never go below a certain amount, no matter what. It can always go up and increase but it will never fall below a certain level, it is always kept like this in order to ensure artists receive a decent payout no matter what. It’s still early days, and there is still plenty of work that needs to be done in order to make music streaming more equitable, but this is just the start of something new.

More information about this can be found at the helpdesk.

TuneSick End of Year Review

Thousands of new users have signed up to the platform to listen to music uninterrupted and in the highest resolution. Listeners from all over the world have taken to the platform, particularly those from western Africa with countries such as Nigeria, Cameron and South Africa as well. 
The most popular genres are definitely Afrobeats and Dancehall, closely followed by Rap and R&B. Artists such as Shaadoh Session and Sol Stringer have proven popular with many listeners. 

Mobile users are certainly more common than desktop, with a massive 78% of all new visits coming from mobile. This reflects the ever changing world of technology and the constant need to keep things mobile. 

We also want to continue to try to support artists as much as we can, this is the key reason why this platform exists, to try to help provide a greater platform for independent artists. That’s why we ran competitions like the Philip Stevenson Remix challenge, with the winning song soon to be released. 
One thing is for sure is that we will carry on into year 2022 with even more work, now that we have come out of beta mode we are trying our best to roll the site and app out to full functionality. Everything should be up and running fine now the beta mode is over, and you can always keep updated on our Twitter feed for the latest.
Thank you so much for your continued support.

SawBoss - Gemini Management Records

SawBoss Interview, Who Is SawBoss?

SawBoss has been doing music for a while. He first took it up 20 years ago, in 2001. During this time, he has collaborated with tens of dozens of artists, performed on stage and even bumped shoulders with names such as Beanie Man.

Right now SawBoss is hardly able to stand still, with an EP out and a new music video just released for the song What Is Love. He is one of many artists signed to the Gemini Management Records Label, headed up in his hometown Jamaica. 
One of his songs, ‘Fix Up’ is one of the more popular songs for SawBoss. It came about when he was asked to come up with a song for the ladies. His idea was to talk about the feeling you have when you sometimes want  a girl to act differently, in a better way, in order to be more attractive to him. This is all real life experience for him, something that he himself had experienced before. Everything that the artist produces is something that comes natural to him, from everyday experiences. 

As with a lot of other singers and producers, music is in the bloodline of SawBoss, with his father being a big musical influence on him. Ever since a kid this has been his passion, and this is clearly evident in everything he does. Look out for new music from SawBoss coming exclusively on TuneSick, check out the new single ‘What Is Love’ out now and for the full video interview press play below:

Philip Stevenson – A Look Into The Work & Life of An Award Winning Music Producer

Philip Stevenson is a French music producer encompassing a range of genres including Jazz, House and Soul. Starting from a very young age, he played the piano, went on to study music and even completed a degree in it.  Right now he is looking to take up music as his main line of work, after spending much time practising, he wants to turn his passion for music into a full time job. 

He is referred to as the ‘music professor’, after all the studies he has completed, and his wealth of experience not just studying but also performing. Being on the road he was part of a Jazz Fusion group, which involved a very demanding schedule. He talks about all the sorts of activities that kept him busy being on the road and not having enough hours in the day.

Inspiration comes naturally to Philip. Just being around nature, and taking in the environment is enough to motivate the songwriter to write lyrics, even just writing them down for future use. He talks about Michael Jackson being such a big influence to him, musically and also by lifestyle. Looking at their journey it is clear that they share the same love and drive, and will do whatever it takes to reach their goals. 

There’s a lot going on right now for the artist, as well as making hits (he currently has over 50 in the works), he is up for numerous awards and busy collaborating with other popular artists, he hopes to get signed and we hope so too. Check out the interview for all the info.

ShankleDip Interview on TuneSick

ShankleDip – Recording Artist & Grammy Dancer – Full Interview

RuffSide recently sat down with the ShankleDip team to discuss all things music.

ShankleDip has been causing some noise recently in the Dancehall scene in Jamaica and now in the UK. 

The name ShankleDip came from the ‘community slang’ that was branded around amongst friends, and quickly became popular. From a young age the artist has been performing, as early as school days. Dancing at concerts was something that really excited him, he would love to get up on stage and express his passion for music in dance. Artists such as Bob Marley were also instrumental in the development of his passion and love for Reggae and dance, and for music as a whole.

‘Being humble’ is just one of the things that helps to keep the man focused and positive. Find out more about the recording artist and Grammy dancer in the full interview below, find out what makes him stay humble, the 5 key ingredients…
