Invest in the songwriter's share of a unique catalog that has over 16 years of history. This catalog earns money from 80s and 90s dance hits, including a Fatboy Slim song that sampled one these songs. In the last 12 months, this catalog generated $1,898.

Up for auction are public performance royalties from music by Doug Lazy, an American hip hop and dance music producer. Doug Lazy scored three No. 1 hits on Billboard's Dance Club Songs chart in the late 80s and early 90s, “Let It Roll,” “Let the Rhythm Pump” and “H.O.U.S.E.” "Let the Rhythm Pump" was Doug Lazy's biggest hit, spending 13 weeks on the charts. In December of last year, Billboard recognized it as one of the top 10 dance songs in 1990 in the article “Greatest of All Time: To 10 Dance Club Songs Year-by-Year.”

In 2000, legendary UK DJ and producer Fatboy Slim sampled Doug Lazy's vocals from “Let the Rhythm Pump” in the song “Ya Mama,” often referred to as “Push the Tempo.” The song reached No. 30 on the UK singles chart. That same year, “Ya Mama” appeared in the film Charlie's Angels and was featured on the soundtrack. The soundtrack was a success, receiving double Platinum certification in June of 2002.

Key Drivers

1) Fatboy Slim's “Ya Mama” makes up 68% of the catalog. This song earns money in multiple ways. Because Fatboy Slim sampled “Let the Rhythm Pump,” the songwriter benefits by collecting royalties from both works. And since “Ya Mama” was featured in in Charlie's Angels this catalog also generates income any time the film airs on television or is streamed.

2) Fatboy Slim has been on the electronic music scene for over 20 years and he isn't slowing down. In March of this year, he released a new single and he is actively touring, with performances scheduled at several festivals in Europe throughout the summer.
