German startup Musicube is the latest company touting AI-powered technology to analyse and tag catalogues of music.
The company has just raised $560k of funding to continue developing its audio analysis product, which is already being used by clients including Sony Music and Budde Music Publishing.
Musicube has been developing its technology for use by labels, publishers and streaming service, while also showcasing it in a free-to-use playlist generator tool on its website. Based on the disco playlist we had it whip up to accompany our news writing this morning, it has potential.
“Our research shows that a healthy percentage – that is, 40 percent – of younger listeners would install a playlist generator app, and that is one reason why Musicube now eyes the U.S. market,” said CEO David Hoga.
Musicube joins an increasingly crowded audio analysis and tagging sector, alongside the likes of Musiio, Cyanite, MyPart and Aims API.
