Brapp is a social music network started by four musically inclined friends who grew up across three continents. Separately working in music, design and technology and now living on other sides of the world, we wanted to challenge the limitations of how music was being created and distributed, and provide a platform that would enable music lovers, and artists at all levels, to connect and collaborate through music the world over.
On the Brapp app and website, producers can upload their beats to showcase their work. Using the app, anyone can make one minute videos on top of beats, enhance the recording using powerful studio effects, add video filters and share with their followers on Brapp and across other social networks.
Our innovative music licensing scenario has created a new and simple way for artists and music lovers to connect, collaborate and share content. Producers have already uploaded over 10,000 original beats for you to record on.
In 2016 we launched Brapp Records to release music and video content by artists we discover around the world.
