Music Sampling Platform Tracklib Secures $12.2M Funding

Tracklib, a digital service for clearing samples, has announced a $12.2-million funding round, with investors including the Sony Innovation Fund, WndrCo, and former NBA player and music producer Baron Davis.

Stockholm-based Tracklib provides music producers and artists with pre-cleared, high-calibre original music for sampling.

Tracklib makes sample clearance fast and easy, allowing creators to utilise subscription plans that grant them access to over 100k original recordings, consisting of various collections of drum breaks, loops, synths, and more.

Tracklib plans to use the funding to reinforce and grow its community, including via original collaborations with leading producers and artists, as well as to expand both the available catalogue and the features on the platform.

Tracklib recently announced partnerships with producer Frank Dukes, as well as Bob James and Isaac Hayes.

“We are thrilled to see the interest of investors, existing and new, in supporting Tracklib’s vision to liberate creativity by creating a better way to sample for millions of music creators,” said CEO Pӓr Almqvist.

“Samples from original music are integral to how artists and producers make music, no matter the genre, and we’ve been pioneers in connecting these creators with important music catalogues in an easy, legal, and affordable way.”

“An amazing tool for creators. It is dope for me as a creator and a DJ. It gave me the confidence to work on my own projects and release some of my music. I can listen to samples, see what other people have put out there and vibe out on Tracklib,” said Davis.
