Tech accelerator 500 Startups has announced its latest round of investments, with three of its “8th Batch” being music-related startups. Rapt.fm is described as “Chat roulette for rap battles, but it’s going to be a comprehensive technology for artists to build fan bases, get discovered, give live concerts, and monetize”. SoundBetter styles itself as “the leading marketplace for music production talent. We connect millions of independent musicians with professional music producers, session musicians, mixing & mastering engineers”. And i3zif is promising to “teach users how to play musical instruments through video tutorials working with some of the best musicians in the Arab world. We’re the first to provide high quality online music education in Arabic, and the first to offer it in English for oriental and eastern instruments”. They, along with another 25 non-music-related companies, are working out of 500 Startups’ new San Francisco office.
