NBA Scores Deal With UnitedMasters To Get In Tune With Independent Musicians

By Barry Janoff

November 8, 2018: The NBA has a strong association with music, including a recently signed global alliance with Beats by Dre and its ongoing deal with JBL Audio.

The league is now adding to the mix a deal with UnitedMasters, a full-service platform that brings independent musicians to domestic and international audiences.

The league said it would feature UnitedMasters musicians across its “digital properties and social community of 1.5 billion,” including NBA.com and the NBA App, as well as league and team social media accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, TikTok, Twitch and Snapchat.

Songs and artists will also be featured in highlight films in-arena and other NBA activation.

Financial terms of the global pact were not disclosed.

According o the NBA, artists aligned with UnitedMasters and their songs “will be tagged or mentioned in select NBA highlight videos along with a link back to the song directly, so viewers and fans can follow the artist and learn more about their work.”

“This is the opportunity to have the NBA introduce (their) music to hundreds of millions of people,” Steve Stoute, UnitedMasters CEO and founder, said via the company.

Stoute previously was an executive with Interscope Geffen A&M Records and Sony Music Entertainment, working with artists including Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake.

He also is a founder of ad agency Translation, where he currently is CEO.

UnitedMasters was founded in late 2017.

According to the NBA, ”This partnership is representative of the ecosystem that UnitedMasters is building for independent artists’ music to be heard around the world and to leverage proprietary data insights that drive smarter connections and recommendations between artists and companies.

“Artists can understand where their music resonates most to maximize their reach, engage with new fans, and advance their careers.”

UnitedMasters was named a Top 50 Startup of 2018 by Linkedin.

UnitedMasters said it allows artists to license their own music and make it available to businesses.

Among its distribution deals are iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, YouTube, Amazon Music, SoundCloud and Tidal.

“Get your music on Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube and more,” offers the company on its Web site. “No lengthy terms, you keep 100% of your rights, and our fee is only a 10% share of revenue for a unique blend of distribution and brand offerings.”
