UnitedMasters has joined forces with Hit-Boy to create a new beats marketplace named Beat Exchange.
Beat Exchange will help producers sell beats, reach new fans, access exclusive brand deals, and get paid all in one place with a direct line to UnitedMasters’ community of 1.5 million independent artists, says the company. Artists will have access to buy and license beats from both emerging and established producers like Hit-Boy, Turbo (Travis Scott, Gunna, Young Thug), Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph (Jay-Z, Rihanna, Kanye West), Kato On The Track, and David Morse.
Users will be able to browse for beats when looking for specific sounds (genre, mood, instrument, etc.) and also access editorial playlists that highlight both emerging and established producers. The Beat Exchange is available on desktop app and the UnitedMasters mobile app on both iPhone and Android.
“Producers determine the sounds of our era, and yet they often get overlooked. Our goal has always been to give independent artists the best-in-class tools to build sustainable and successful music industry careers. Now we’re not only giving producers the access to artists but the recognition they deserve as creators,” said UnitedMasters Founder and CEO Steve Stoute. “The Beat Exchange is another way we’re challenging the status quo, by directly connecting brilliant artists and producers so they can continue taking ownership of their creative journeys.”
“I got my start making beats in my bedroom and putting them online on Myspace,” said Hit-Boy. I know the struggle and how hard it can be as an emerging producer. Working with UnitedMasters, I want young producers and artists to have what I didn’t. UnitedMasters will give emerging producers the right tools, exposure, and access to brands to help their careers blow up.”
