Since November, a core of dedicated testers have been putting Jukedeck’s beta (a tool that writes unique, royalty-free music at the touch of a button) through its paces.
We thought we’d take a quick trip round the web to see where our music is helping out.
The Silicon Valley behemoth is clearly taking its mission – to organise the world’s information and make it universally accessible and useful – seriously. As well as processing 40,000 searches per second, Google publishes content of its own, including a highly successful Developers channel on YouTube. Google asked if they could use our music to accompany one of their videos, and we were only too happy to oblige.
Natural History Museum
London is home to some great things: the Queen, red buses, and Robbie Williams’s voice. But of this wealth of culture, only museums are free. So when the Natural History Museum enquired about Jukedeck we leapt at the opportunity to support this venerable institution. Better still, it transpired they were launching a project in which schools across the UK can collaborate on cutting-edge genetic research. #Impactful.
The London startup community is thriving. From Citymapper to YPlan to WorldRemit, our home city has truly come of technological age. We’re based at TechHub, a fantastic co-working space overlooking Silicon Roundabout, and as such have the privilege of working alongside some brilliant early-stage companies. One of these, FATMAP, is on a mission to revolutionise skiing by producing “the most detailed 3D ski maps ever made”. Here’s their teaser video, accompanied by some Jukedeck electronic beats.
300 hours of content is uploaded to YouTube every minute. This staggering quantity of content has led to YouTube being more popular than TV amongst certain segments of society. Emblematic of the prominence of YouTube has been the rise of ‘stars’ such as Zoella and Bethany Mota. We’ve unearthed a few of our own, and are big fans of both Pink Cake Princess and Hannah Jukes. We’re extremely proud that these marvellous YouTubers have both been using Jukedeck’s music in their work.
Finally, we’re pleased to report that Jukedeck is not just for video. Musicians such as Jared Kinsler have begun to use our music to create bigger and better pieces. We’re delighted that Jukedeck can play a role in helping everyone compose – and our assault on 2015’s Christmas No.1 starts here.
