Several new names in the pop firmament have chosen Soundreef for the total or partial management of their royalties, starting from 1 January 2022. The growth of the music catalog administered by the company founded by Davide d’Atri (with particular reference to the management of online, radio and TV rights, in which Soundreef excels) reflects the market changes consequential to the crisis that has invested the sector last year and, in particular, the increase in the use of streaming content.
Thanks to its technological and innovative development, today Soundreef offers its members a 100% transparent and analytical distribution – Authors, Composers and Publishers are sharing their rights thus maximizing earnings and making the administration of their copyrights more efficient.
And this is why some of the best-known names in the Italian music world have chosen Soundreef for the management of their Online and Radio/TV rights, a field in which our collecting company excels thanks to its innovative technology. Laura Pausini, Ultimo, Giovanni Allevi and Marco Masini come from the Olympus of pop. They are joined by other pillars of the Italian music word, like Franz di Cioccio and Patrick Djivas of PFM, while straight from the rap scene come Tedua, Briga, Mostro, AVA, Leon Faun, Duffy, Bresh and dozens of young rappers and trappers generating millions of streamings each month. Furthermore, publishing companies like Honiro, Baraonda and others owned by the same authors and composers entrust Soundreef with Online rights only.
Finally, Soundreef will manage all the copyrights of well-known authors Federica Camba (author of numerous hits), Claudio Guidetti (“Più bella cosa“, “Un’emozione per sempre“, along with two victories at Sanremo), the producer STRAGE, Francesco Zampaglione, and Megalo and GPQN publishing companies, as well as numerous emerging artists, for a total of 43,000 registered authors, composers or publishers, 26,000 of which are Italian.
Soundreef is the first copyright management company in Italy supporting the Credits Due international campaign, designed to raise awareness and unite the music industry on the importance of metadata, i.e. the identity information of tracks. When correctly related to the piece, metadata – indeed, the registry of musical works – ensure a more effective tracking and, consequently, a more correct remuneration. This is an essential technological effort to update and make current reporting systems more efficient.
These new acquisitions enrich the already-consolidated catalogue of our collecting company, whose repertoire, over the years, was enriched by famous authors such as Enrico Ruggeri, J-Ax, Gigi D’Alessio, Giancarlo Bigazzi, Alessandro Merli (Takagi), Fabio Clemente (Ketra), Maurizio Fabrizio, Fabio Rovazzi, Federica Abbate, Boomdabash, Danti, Two Fingerz, Morgan, Nesli, 99 Posse, Noyz Narcos; prominent publishers such as Smilax; and, for the online collection, Thaurus Publishing.
Along with great names of the Italian rap sphere, including Sfera Ebbasta, Guè, Marracash, MACE, Charlie Charles, Shablo, Rkomi, Ernia, Drefgold, FSK $atellite, and many others.
