IDEA INCEPTION

While at Brown University, Andrew Antar started a student group for musicians to collaborate with each other, jam, and form bands. Upon its initial success on campus, Andrew began designing a music social network and recruiting Brown's top engineering talent. Meanwhile at University of Pennsylvania, Brian Antar was producing beats for local rap/hip-hop artists and recording sessions at Penn Studios. Upon searching for ways to independently distribute tracks while retaining full control, Brian saw it didnt exist and decided to create a direct-to-fan music marketplace where artists can control their pricing and distribute music directly to their fans. Once the brothers realized they were both simultaneously creating music platforms, they combined their ideas and efforts to create the ultimate global social music marketplace platform for artists and fans to share their music.
