Sampling Policy

As of July 1st 2021, we’re implementing a more robust “sampling policy” for the protection of our artists and our own interests.

Any sampled material included in your release must be cleared with the original creator and have written consent. If the sample is part of a library that allows commercial usage, be that a sample pack / kontakt instrument library etc, you may be asked to present your receipt of purchase and the EULA of the library.

We at Beatsupply have a large roster of talented artists, playing and recording a broad range of instruments. If your track contains something that cannot be cleared, chances are there is somebody at Beatsupply, or somebody that our artists are close to, that would be willing to work with you to replace the sampled content with something bespoke.

Generally speaking, if your release contains samples obtained through services such as Splice, public domain recordings, or content from other royalty free libraries, everything is fine. If it contains sampled material from existing works from another artist (crate digging, YouTube digging etc) there may be a problem and the release may need to be altered.

Of course, every release is different, so please take this as a rough guide. If you’re in doubt or have any questions, just let us know and we’ll work together with you to find a solution.
