Singapore-based social music-making platform, BandLab, has acquired Chew, the London-based livestreaming service that has been described as “Twitch for DJs”.
Said Meng Ru Kuok, BandLab’s CEO / Co-Founder. “Performing live has always been one of the most important parts of being a musician and has never been more important. As an extension of that, it’s extremely important for us to be able to digitally support creators and musicians who want to bring their live performances to the world.”
Together, BandLab’s social, digital tools for musicians and Chew’s performance and streaming-focused platform will further empower creators to make, collaborate, publish and perform online. Chew will continue as a discrete service, rebranded as “Chew by BandLab”; in addition, livestreaming technology will be integrated into BandLab’s web platform, Android & iOS apps for use by BandLab’s existing user base of close to 2 million users.
