Beatchain Ltd., a data-driven platform for discovery, marketing and promotion in the music industry, will now be offering distribution through its technology. The full direct-to-artist platform will launch in early 2020. In the meantime, Beatchain will continue working with artists across the globe on their promotion and fan building. They will also help artists upload their music to the most popular streaming services.
“Our ultimate vision is to use today’s most advanced technology, along with data and analytics, to give independent artists the ability to manage their entire careers, without a major label deal or expensive promoters,” said Ben Mendoza, co-founder and President of Beatchain. “Distribution is a key component of implementing that objective. There are many services on the market that allow artists to publish their music directly, but none of them offer the full suite of services that Beatchain will.”
Beatchain has partnered with FUGA, a technology and services company for rights holders, to allow its users to distribute content to global music streaming services. FUGA’s platform will allow Beatchain to distribute their users’ content to hundreds of digital services for 100% market reach. Artists can upload unlimited tracks for only $1.99 per month.
Using the latest in artificial intelligence, automation and data science techniques, Beatchain’s platform will help artists grow, engage and understand their fans. The Beatchain team, which is led by Ben Mendoza, consists of behavioral economists, Ph.D. data scientists, artificial intelligence and machine learning experts and senior music industry professionals. Currently, Beatchain’s technology is being used by artists across the globe including Duke, Mike Mayfield and Bang Bang Romeo in Europe and Mötley Crüe, Just Loud, Bleeker, Romes and Cory Mark in the US.
