Highlighted in this listing is a collection of Oktavian productions ranging from Mickey Valen’s “Meet Me” to the collaboration between award-winning DJs Zeds Dead and Illenium on “Where The Wild Things Are.” Responsible for over 350+ million plays on Spotify since first coming onto the scene, Oktavian's style ranges vastly across pop, electronic, and hip-hop, including collaborations with artists ranging from Demi Lovato to Kygo.

This collection leans heavy towards international royalties, which is typical of the electronic music genre. According to the 2018 IMS Business Report, EDM sees most of its fan base overseas in Australia, the UK, and Germany. Historically, 75% of this collection’s earnings have accrued internationally. It’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail and can consist of radio, streaming, and TV/Film earnings.

What’s even more interesting is this collection’s impressive growth driven by streaming platforms. In fact, in the last 12 months alone, streaming has grown over 100% driven in part by the success behind the new releases that make up this catalog. It’s worth noting that nearly 90% of electronic music listeners use the streaming platforms that drive this collection’s success. As the winning investor, you will benefit from these listeners’ active music habits on platforms like YouTube and Spotify.

Key Drivers

Electronic Genre. According to 2018 IMS Business Report, the EDM (electronic dance music) industry is currently valued at $7.4 billion, estimating that the global EDM industry could be worth nearly $9 billion by 2021. In fact, EDM as a genre is beginning to blend into mainstream culture, with crossover hits appearing in both pop and R&B categories. As the once-underground genre becomes deeper embedded in mainstream culture, crossover tracks bridge the gap between genres.

International. The majority of this catalog’s earnings come from abroad — at 75% of historical earnings. Although international royalty distribution can lag behind domestic payments, as the winner of this auction you’ll be entitled to any past performance royalties paid by ASCAP, regardless of when they were earned.

As this collection earns primarily from countries outside the United States, it’s important to note that international earnings can often be reported to distributors with limited detail. These international earnings often include income from radio, streaming platforms, and TV/Film.

EDM/Streaming. According to BuzzAngle’s 2018 report, as a genre, 87% of EDM (electronic) listeners tune in on-demand streaming platforms. This is great news for you, as the winning investor will benefit from this collection’s increasing streaming growth. In the last 12 months alone, this collection has shown notable growth at over 100% from the preceding year.
