AI-music startup Boomy found itself at the centre of a controversy earlier this year when a swathe of music created on its platform was removed from Spotify.
Boomy wasn’t the villain though: Spotify had detected streaming manipulation around the music – likely from the people who created it. Boomy would later reestablish its pipeline to Spotify, and place limits on free accounts on its service as a “commitment to industry health”.
Now it’s taken another step in that direction. Boomy has inked a deal with Beatdapp, one of the startups that has developed technology to spot streaming fraud.
The partnership has already seen Beatdapp conduct an analysis of all the Boomy-made music that has been distributed to streaming services.
The promise is that from now on Boomy will be able to “verify the authenticity of every stream across all digital streaming platforms” using Beatdapp’s tech.
It’s a sensible move for Boomy, and perhaps a model that other AI music startups and platforms (whether they partner or build it themselves) will follow.
