    Award from Huawei

    Horus Music, a global digital music distribution company based in Leicester City Centre has this this week been awarded “Best Business Partner of 2014” by Huawei Technology, a global telecommunication company founded in China.

    Horus Music, who is approaching its ninth year in the music industry, allows independent artists, management companies and record labels to sell their music to over 650 stores around the world.  The ethos of the company is to ensure all clients are given a level playing field regardless of their public profile and have their music available in all corners of the world, not just on the dominant download and streaming stores.

    Managing Director, Nick Dunn who collected the award from Huawei stated: “This award was a real surprise to us and a wonderful honour Huawei bestow upon us.  We have worked with Huawei for four years now and it’s been a very good partnership that will grow for many years to come.  It is not easy as a small company dealing with major corporations and the strict requirements Huawei have, but they have been supportive to us and my team has at every step ensured we do all we can to deliver the right quality of music to Huawei.  Huawei have some very exciting business plans going forwards and we are very excited to be in partnership with them.”

    Huawei Aggregation and Operation BD Director Jun Jian stated when giving the award “Horus music is one of the best partners of Huawei and Mr. Nick Dunn gives is the professional consultant that we needed very much. We shall do more and more business together for the global Market in the future”.

  3. Fair Digital Deals Declaration

    Leave a Comment

    On the 30th July 2014, Horus Music signed a Labels’ Fair Digital Deals Declaration with the Worldwide Independent Network.

    Although all of these were done previously by Horus Music, many companies did not and still don’t share in these values.   The Global Independent Manifesto shows artists and labels that Horus Music is making a public declaration that everyone will be treated fairly, valued and not have money they are entitled too withheld.

    The Digital Deals Declaration:

    1. Ensure that artists’ share of download and streaming revenues is clearly explained in recording agreements and royalty statements in reasonable summary form.
    2. Account to artists a good-faith pro-rata share of any revenues and other compensation from digital services that stem from the monetization of recordings but are not attributed to specific recordings or performances.
    3. Encourage better standards of information from digital services on the usage and monetization of music.
    4. Support artists who choose to oppose, including publicly, unauthorized uses of their music.
    5. Support the collective position of the global independent record company sector as outlined in the Global Independent Manifesto below.

    We wholly disapprove of certain practices which leave artists under-recompensed and under-informed in the digital marketplace and will work together with the artist community to counter these practices.

    CEO and Managing Director of Horus Music, Nick Dunn stated in an recent interview that “we at Horus Music are very excited to be able to publicly state how we along with many of our colleagues across the music industry are working together to ensure the rights of artists are treated fairly and not exploited.  The WIN declaration helps artists see which companies have disregard of their music and don’t have a wiliness to share information and income.  We have always campaigned and continue to do so that companies give artists fair deals and ensure they are rewarded.  I often see court cases against illegal stores who pay huge amounts of money in compensation from the exploitation of music that belongs to artists, yet I know many artists do not ever benefit from that litigation, the companies just keep the profits.  This is one way many of us can show and demonstrate we are not like the others.”
