Frank Dukes, a 3-time GRAMMY Award winner and Founder of Kingsway Music Library, has partnered with Tracklib to bring more than 200 masters and 800 stems to the online sample store.
Frank Dukes Has Worked With Globally-Known Artists
Since producing the timeless Drake anthem “0-100,” 3-time-GRAMMY Award winner Frank Dukes has been a go-to producer. All while quietly climbing the ranks with one infectious radio hit at a time. Dukes has a catalog consisting of more than 30 platinum records. He has worked with the likes of Travis Scott, The Weekend, Taylor Swift, Kanye, Post Malone, and Camila Cabello, just to name a few.
Duke’s fan-favorite sample imprint Kingsway Music Library has partnered with Tracklib; the Stockholm-based sampling service further revolutionizing sample clearance. The library has been used frequently by other hitmakers; like Metro Boomin, Murdabeatz, Boi1da, and Hit-Boy. The new care package encompasses more than 200 masters, 800 stems from Frank Dukes Archive.
Producers and Artists Can Now Access His Extensive Library
Initially, it was a place for Dukes to release volumes of his own compositions; that were then sampled by many producers and artists on their own tracks. Now, it has grown to include compositions and releases from many young up-and-coming producers. These include CVRE, FORTHENIGHT, Mino, Louis Bell, Wallis Lane, Allen Ritter, and others.
“We’re excited to be the first sample library to be included in Tracklib; who have further innovated in the sampling and music production space. They have pushed for artist rights; as well as making it easier for the world’s creators to collaborate remotely,” Dukes said.
Tracklib is the world’s first and only digital platform for legally clearing samples; solving a big problem in the music industry. A vast majority of all sampling is done illegally. This is because of the complexities and high cost usually involved with sample clearance. The massive library consists of over 100,000 original recordings. Everything from Mozart to Isaac Hayes. For as little as $50, they can now get the license for sampling.
Tracklib’s revolutionary solution has been embraced by artistic and industry giants. Some are Scott Storch, Redman, 9th Wonder, Jazzy Jeff, and Zaytoven, who have publicly praised the company. Artists who have released songs with samples from the platform include DJ Khaled, Mary J. Blige, Lil Wayne, BROCKHAMPTON, Phantogram, and J. Cole also used a Tracklib sample for his 6x Platinum single “Middle Child.” Tracklib launched in 2018. Its headquarters are in Stockholm, Sweden, with representation in New York City and London.
