With a population of fewer than 600,000 people, Suriname might not be a priority for the big music-streaming services, but that leaves an opportunity for local competitors. TrackDrip being a brand new example.
It’s an on-demand music-streaming service that launched in Suriname (which is off the coast of South America, if you were about to Google it) this month. It’s interesting too: focused on Caribbean and Latin American artists – and also Dutch music – with a mixture of audio, video and user-generated content. The service is also launching in Cuba and Curaçao as part of its initial rollout.
TrackDrip is free to use, but has a premium-tier subscription for people who want to listen and watch offline. The company is working with B2B digital-music firm Tuned Global on the service: the latter company’s white-label app is the core for the service.
