Remixes and mash-ups are one of the reasons SoundCloud has such a bustling community, but also one of its biggest copyright headaches.

A new startup co-founded by former Beatport CEO Matthew Adell is hoping to find a legitimate business model in remixes, though.

The startup is called MetaPop, and it’s billing itself as “the only platform in the world exclusively dedicated to remixes and their creators” – based around the principles that people have the right to make remixes; that fans want to hear them; but that the original creators deserve to be compensated.

Adell has co-founded the company with Michael Mukhin, who previously worked at Boomrat, a dance-music discovery service launched within Live Nation in 2014, but shut down early the next year.
