Startups and change makers leveraging music and music technology to curate a more creative world.
This week we find some interesting takes on where we are currently at with streaming and their policies.
An interesting marketing take on Snapchat releasing Lens which react to sound. It can be a really cool way for an artist or band to utilize the tool to grow awareness around an upcoming single or album release.
👏I would also like to introduce my new co-curator, Josh Ford, so let’s all welcome him. 👏
This week we’re featuring 8Stem Interactive Music, a startup by Sub Pop founder, Bruce Pavitt. 8Stem is an interactive music format, remix platform, and mobile app. The company enables fans to easily manipulate songs like an audio engineer - muting vocals, replacing drums, adding effects, rearranging song parts - to create a custom remix. The concept is similar to Instagram, where simplified professional tools are available by tapping or dragging on your phone. 8Stem’s mission is to lower the barrier to remixing with a complete turnkey system. So not only does the app contain tracks and a remixer, once a remix is made, users can post it to social, or publish to streaming services like Spotify or Apple Music. The app is available in the App Store here.
