BandLab Announces New Integrations with Global Beat Marketplace Airbit for Seamless Sharing02 October 2023 - Press release
BandLab, the world's largest social music creation platform, is proud to announce exciting new integrations with Airbit, a leading global beat marketplace, that enables Airbit users to seamlessly share their beats to BandLab's worldwide audience of creators. With a unified commitment to amplifying the reach and potential of music creators, this collaboration not only enhances the connection between beat creation, sharing, and promotion but also bridges the gap between sellers and buyers.
Rolling out today, users can embed their beats directly in BandLab posts from Airbit. This integration lets Airbit creators amplify their beats to a broader audience and also benefit from using BandLab Boost to promote their posts to trending feeds. With Airbit embeds on BandLab, producers can effortlessly share their beats with a broader audience, tapping into BandLab's vast community of over 60 million creators.
Beyond native embeds on BandLab, producers on Airbit will also have the ability to natively "Share to BandLab" any beat on Airbit's catalog of over 1 million beats available to license or purchase. Once clicked, BandLab will open with the beat already embedded in a new post, making the process even more seamless for producers looking to promote their creations. Native embeds will only be available on web upon initial release, with mobile compatibility to come in future releases.
This integration builds upon Airbit's recent announcements of eliminating platform Marketplace commissions, enhancing its free Basic plan, and the ability for users to register with and log into Airbit using their BandLab account, similar to how one would sign in with other third-party platforms.
BandLab Technologies acquired Airbit earlier this year, a union that was followed by a successful $25M Series B1 funding round that elevated the company's valuation to $425M post-money.
"Our goal has always been to empower creators by providing tools to amplify their voice and vision," says Meng Ru Kuok, CEO & Co-founder of BandLab Technologies. "This is just another step in bringing Airbit's expansive beat marketplace to BandLab's passionate community and a testament to our dedication to creating a seamless and rich ecosystem for creators worldwide."
Wasim Khamlichi, CEO & Founder at Airbit, added, "This is a monumental step for both Airbit and BandLab. Our objective remains clear as we continue to integrate — providing creators a platform where their work gets the spotlight it deserves."
