Description

Collect sound recording royalties produced from the dance/pop album Electric Soul EP from rising producer Sam F.

As the winning bidder, you will earn royalties any time the songs are streamed, digitally downloaded or synced. It will come as no surprise that the majority of this catalog’s earnings came from streaming, a staggering 89% of last year’s income in fact.

The foundation of this collection is the 2017 release “Limitless” featuring pop vocalist Sophie Rose. The track brought in 73% of last year's royalties and has nearly 6.5 million spins on Spotify. “Limitless” also broke into the Top 10 of Billboard’s Dance Airplay weekly charts, peaking at No. 9.

The single earns the majority of its royalties from core dance outlets like Music Choice's Dance/EDM channel, SiriusXM, and other various streaming platforms. “Limitless” also received a sync in Samsung’s Galaxy S8 commercial campaign in 2017. You’ll notice the spike in earnings in H2-2017 as a result of the placement.

Other top-earning songs from the EP include: “All We Got” featuring Lizzy Land, “Electric Soul,” featuring Denny White and “Zone.” Combined the three tracks account for 26% of the catalog’s income last year and collectively garnered close to 4 million plays on Spotify.

Key Drivers

Sound Recordings & Streaming: Sound recording royalties benefit from streaming disproportionately more than composition-based royalties. If Spotify pays 70-cents of every dollar on music rights, 60-cents of that goes to the sound recording copyright, while the remaining 10-cents goes to the composition copyright.

In the last year, 89% of royalties came from streaming services. Sam F has over 100,000 monthly listeners on Spotify as well. This is good news for you as the investor, as this catalog earns from the sound recording copyright.

Sync Potential. In the two years since the album Electric Soul EP was released, two of the songs have been placed in TV programming. The first was substantial sync for "Limitless" used in a 2017 Samsun commercial. The second "All We Got" was featured in the MTV series Siesta Key. This clearly demonstrates the songs’ sync potential. As the winning bidder, you’ll be entitled to any upfront sync/licensing fees paid for the track’s use going forward.

WHAT IS BEING SOLD? 

The seller's interest in all royalties (except non-interactive digital performance royalties collected by SoundExchange), attributable to the sound recordings listed in the Track List noted above.
