Bid now to own and control 100% of the sound recording copyrights and associated royalties for a 470-song catalog of psychedelic trance music from indie labels Neurobiotic Records and Indica Music. These tracks are distributed by INgrooves in digital music outlets like iTunes, Google Music, Spotify, Pandora and Beatport, and have earned $3,742.40 in royalties in the last 12 months.

Since January 2008, this catalog has generated $73,232.30 through its distribution agreement with INgrooves. INgrooves has limited exclusivity in distributing to its channel partners, but the owner of this catalog has the right to distribute outside of the channels used by INgrooves. That means the winning bidder of this auction may be able to monetize the catalog in ways that are not currently being explored.

Neurobiotic Records has been active in the psychedelic trance scene since 2001 and has continued to release records up through 2016. It organized the first trance festivals in Italy from 2005-2007, called “Sonica,” which attracted more than 15,000 people from all over the world. Indica Music is a sublabel of Neurobiotic Records and its most significant release, Cell's album Phonic Peace, continues to be a top earner for this catalog more than 10 years after its 2005 release.

*Important note on the closing process*

The distributor, INgrooves, reserves the right to deny an assignment of the seller's distribution agreement to a third party purchaser. As a part of this auction's closing process, the seller will disclose the winning bidder to INgrooves as the proposed assignee. If INgrooves denies the assignment, the winning bidder will have the option of (1) directing the seller to terminate the INgrooves agreement so that the winning bidder can enter its own agreement with a different distributor, or (2) canceling the deal and having its money returned.
