  2. 2. DLS Beats 2014 1. About DLS Beats 1.1 Mission Statement DLS Beats strives to become an internationally acknowledged leading music production company and market leader by delivering unique and inspirational products of high quality and exceptional customer service, build upon a foundation of giving artists the power to succeed and grow in the world’s rapidly evolving music industry. 1.2 Company Information DLS Beats is an internationally renowned state-of-the-art music production company that supplies music production services to artists, companies, brands and spaces. After being founded in 2002, the main style and sound of DLS Beats is Hip Hop and Electronic music and since the beginning more than 1,000,000 song plays, 100,000 fans and thousands of music and beat downloads have been collected. The company is not limited to producing beats for client releases and until nowadays a variety of remix, instrumental and song mixtapes and albums, totalling 30 have been released in their own name. The most successful release is a remix of a song by Dub Fx called Time Will Tell, with whom a mixtape was published early in 2013 and for the upcoming year many interesting projects will be launched such as studio session videos, the release of a second relaxation music episode and of course many more music releases. DLS Beats is offering beats from a catalogue which can be licensed to get the rights to use them for albums, mixtapes, promotional videos, film, TV, websites and more. All beats are produced by the founder of the company, DLS and it is highly valued and crucial that the artwork of other producers is being respected by not copying their sound and music productions. A wide range of sounds, genres and bpm are available and both old school and new school type of beats are being produced. At the present time it is significant to stand out and use beats which other artists have not used before; therefore the premium exclusive licence is a special category of beats because each in this category has never been used by anyone and the quality is much higher than the other category of beats. Moreover, the need of tracked out versions increased in the past couple of years; hence it is possible to acquire the track outs with each licence apart from the non exclusive licence. A special feature about the non exclusive licence is that the beats can be downloaded as both an MP3 and a WAV version. Besides the beats from the catalogue, custom beats can be produced on demand and an extensive range of music genres can be created depending on the artists’ needs and the contemporary company is known for blending music genres. The process of arranging a personalized beat is very simple. The artist gives instructions about how the future beat should sound and DLS Beats will produce an instrumental accordingly. Once the beat has been finalised, the artist will receive a tracked out version of the beat by email for mixing and mastering. DLS Beats has been very active in remixing songs of independent and major artists including Snoop Dogg, Pharrell, Public Enemy, Kid Cudi, Wale, Tinie Tempah, Labrinth, Tiesto, Uffie and Jason Derulo to name a few. The newest remixes are of B.o.B, Ca$h Out, Cypress Hill and Rusko and on our website we provide a complete list of DLS Remixes. Custom remixes can be booked by any artists and the process works similarly like booking custom instrumentals. Page 3
  3. 3. DLS Beats 2014 1.3 Clients DLS Beats has produced singles, albums, remixes and background music for clients from all around the globe for example but not limited to the USA, Canada, Brazil, Belgium, Germany, Spain, Norway, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, India, Philippines, Australia and Norway. Since they are focussed on Hip Hop and EDM music, mostly of the clients are from these industries and each year, new countries are being added to the list. Globalisation helps to increase the diversity of music culture and sounds and in 2014; DLS Beats is looking to reach out to more countries in Europe and Latin Africa. On the following map you can see in which countries the beats were used in blue. 1.4 Charities In order to give back to the community, DLS Beats is supporting a couple of music oriented charities by donating a percentage of the sale of certain songs. Unfortunately it is hard to find music studios in some remote areas in this world, but the donations will enable a lot of people to get access to them because it is crucial for song recording and below you can see the charities we are currently associated with. In the future, we are planning to create our own charity and it will be based on music development as well. We started a few projects in countries from Africa and depending on the outcome we will establish a charity within the next two years. Page 4
