Herman Verkade

Musiqware is Berlin's one and only dance-specialist music publisher, focussing exclusively on the global needs of Berlin's techno and house community. We are direct affiliates of the all major PROs, MROs, and NROs around the globe, and work closely with Music Recognition Technology companies to work towards electronic music producers getting paid when their music is getting played. Herman founded Musiqware in 2006 in the UK, but moved the company to Berlin in early 2017, and can now often be found (together with his partner Annika) in many of Berlin's legendary nightclubs. He is a member of the Association for Electronic Music, actively participating in working groups relating to Metadata, Digital Service Providers, and Collective Management Organisations.
