Sentric Electronic launches to service thousands of producers without music publishing08 October 2018 - Press release
Millions of tracks left with unclaimed publishing across electronic music genre every year
Sentric Music has combined with Black Rock Publishing to launch Sentric Electronic – a dedicated electronic music publishing service that puts producers and songwriters first.
While many electronic music producers are well aware of the income they can earn from a record deal with a label, too many overlook publishing, which rewards songwriting - generating revenue when compositions are played, performed and copied.
Clubs, download stores, streaming services, radio stations and television are just some of the outlets that should lead to songwriting royalties for electronic music producers and artists.
Sentric Electronic is the first dedicated online publishing service for electronic music producers, artists and songwriters. It brings together the technology, infrastructure and global reach of Sentric Music, and the insight and experience of Black Rock.
Sentric Electronic’s core offering is a 28-day deal with market leading rates and technology. The company collects performance, mechanical and neighbouring rights revenue from around the world, with clients retaining 100% of their copyrights.
Sentric Electronic also boasts an award-winning synchronisation and licensing team with a strong track record placing music across TV, film, advertising, video games, promotional videos and other brand partnerships.
Artists already signed to the Sentric Electronic service include Albzzy, Alice Clark, Enzo Siffredi, Jansons, Killed Kassette, Melinki , Lord of The Isles, Mark Jenkyns , Mizbee, Scarlett Quinn, Thomas Gandey, Rhythm Staircase and Tigerlight.
Co-founded by former AFEM CEO Mark Lawrence, Black Rock Publishing has provided artist publishing, neighbouring rights representation and record label rights management services for artists and companies working in the electronic music genre since 2013.
Black Rock recently became a part of Sentric Music. Founded in 2006, Sentric Music is a global, award-winning independent publisher. Based in Liverpool and with offices in London, Hamburg, Amsterdam, New York and Los Angeles, it boasts an international infrastructure including direct royalty collection with over 100 global territories. Today, it represents more than a million works.
Mark Lawrence said: “Millions of tracks in the electronic genre remain unpublished since release. With Sentric’s platform and infrastructure, and Black Rock’s reputation and expertise in the genre, this is a really unique opportunity for electronic music creators everywhere. Now, anyone looking for a publishing deal can sign up online in minutes and begin registering tracks and collecting royalties.”
Sentric Music CEO Chris Meehan said: “Since day one, Sentric Music has been about making music publishing fairer, easier and clearer. Over the course of our history, we’ve helped thousands of songwriters recover the revenue they deserve and earn significant extra income to enhance their careers and their music. We’re really excited about continuing that mission with a tailor-made service for the electronic music genre.”
