Saves music labels time and money in their search for new recordings and artists.

The volume of tracks being uploaded to streaming sites every day has created a significant pool of unsigned talent. That is why we have built a powerful A&R scouting tool intended to save A&R teams time and money in their search for new recordings and artists to sign. Our A&R scouting tool signals the highest potential talent as and when it emerges, and has already resulted in numerous new signings for both major and indie labels around the world.

Connects artist services with early stage talent to develop.

With so many new artists self-releasing onto streaming sites every day, we recognise the importance of developing relationships with high-potential artists in the very early stages of their careers. That is why our analytics provides photographers, lawyers, radio pluggers and PR companies with a head start to increase their portfolio of new quality artists for growth and development.
