SoundCloud has acquired Musiio, the Singapore-based startup that has developed a service offering AI-powered analysis and tagging of music catalogues. Why? SoundCloud said that it will use the tech to get more insight into the music uploaded to its platform: “to better understand how that music is moving in a proprietary way” as president Eliah Seton put it.

However, Musiio stressed that it is not shutting down its service for other music companies. “As part of SoundCloud, Musiio will continue to operate as a B2B company, servicing our existing clients and open to new clients for our Tag and Search AI products,” said the startup.

Those clients include Hipgnosis, Beatstars, Amanotes, Epidemic Sound and Jamendo, as well as the likes of Sony Music and Downtown Music.
