The music collaboration developer Splice has just acquired the remix competition and online music community Indaba. As Indaba has grown to be an online music community of more than one million creators, Indaba's founder Dan Zaccagnino and CEO, JJ Rosen will join Splice's executive team as part of the deal.
Indaba, which was founded 12 years ago, has its popular remix competitions with high-profile artists and contests for licensing placements with major brands including Sony Electronics, Red Bull, and Yo-Yo Ma.
In addition to the deal, Splice will also maintain and expand the Rubber Tracks Sample Library, which Indaba Music created in partnership with Converse back in 2012. The catalog has over 40,000 royalty-free samples, loops and stems, contributed by legendary musicians.
“We founded Indaba Music to connect musicians in new ways and accelerate their creativity with creative content and opportunities. Splice shares that vision and has the resources and team needed to bring it to the next level,” stated Dan Zaccagnino.
