Thefuture.fm

Thefuture.fm is a cloud-based internet radio station focused on legally monetizing mixed audio content curated by the world’s top DJs and recorded live at premier clubs and exclusive events.

Through the use of the audio fingerprinting and rights flow technology called MixSCAN, the platform accurately identifies all music within long-form audio content and provides copyright holders and artists with compensation for their material via a royalty-based revenue stream. It is the first and only solution that accommodates the legal streaming of DJ mixes, podcasts, and mixtapes.

Formerly known as Dubset.com, the company rebranded to Thefuture.fm in April 2012.
