Paris DJs Happy New Year 2014

In 2013 Paris DJs have put out 52 releases, one per week if you add the few mixes to the list of singles, albums and compilations (check the list below). For this new year we wish to go even further forward. We've already planned many new compilations (psychedelic hip hop, jazzy hip hop, female MCs, afro/tropical vol.5, dub, rock… and more) but we've decided to dig even deeper in 2014. So if you have some tracks/releases from your catalog to submit for some of our upcoming compilations (and singles), if you want to send us some upcoming promotional music, or some unreleased tunes, there's many things Paris DJs can do about and with this music, which is why we have a few questions :

LICENSING : PARIS DJS COMPILATIONS
> Can we pick a track from your release(s) for one of our upcoming compilations ?
> For digital, can we sell that track separately or is it bundle-only ?
Our conditions : no advance; non-exclusive; tracks only licensed in the context of the compilation; artists keep 100% of their masters and publishing; 50/50 on all net profits.

REMIXING : PARIS DJS REWORKS
> Is there a track in the release you've sent that we may remix using only the vocal parts ?
Our conditions : same as the compilations, excepted that we'll only use the a capella / vocal parts and will compose a brand new instrumental; we'll register at SACEM together a new track with a new name, with 60% publishing for you and 40% for us; we'll release the remix on Paris DJs and will share all profits 50/50; any 3rd party licensing/commercial use of the remix will be split 50/50 but will need approval from both parties.

PROMOTING : COMMUNITY MANAGEMENT
> We can review your music and relay the information on all Paris DJs' social networks. Promotion costs start at 50€ per release and we also have bundle offers for labels, including free advertising banners, mixes, virtual releases, etc. Would you be interested in that?
