emonthebeat Nice flow! BRAPP is shutting down next month. No more brapp
emonthebeat Email from them, the other day.
emonthebeat Dear the Brapp family, It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that we will be shutting down the Brapp app and web platform in 30 days (12th February 2020).
emonthebeat There is another app i use called: Speazie and BandLab
emonthebeat We started Brapp with a simple plan, to create an app that enable artists and producers to connect in a way that has no geographical, musical or financial barriers, and believe that now more than ever, anything that helps us connect beyond borders and cultures is important and should be celebrated. Sadly, however, Brapp is expensive to operate and we don’t currently have the financial runway to keep it running and build all the exciting things in our roadmap.
emonthebeat Check your promotions email or spam. It might be there
emonthebeat I foward you the email
emonthebeat I use another app called Speazie and BandLab
emonthebeat They are pretty good. I don’t know if you can record video though
emonthebeat On Speazie I’m Emonthebeat
emonthebeat And BandLab also Emonthebeat
jackiebond How were they making money to fund it before? I know they weren't coming outta pocket to keep the app going this whole time. Why can't they just start getting some sponsers to pay for ad space or something?
nuriel @jackiebond Your guess is as good as mine bro. They say in the email they’ll let us know if anything changes. I think they might announce soon that they will be charging to use the app or some shit. Just a hunch. I’d probably pay a one off payment still if it was reasonable.
jackiebond Or are they looking to sale the app? Or hand off the torch to keep the app alive? Maaan, there are NO other apps that can compare to BRAPP at all. Not even close.
nuriel @jackiebond I know it seems strange to me that they would just close it down & let it go to waste with so many using the platform. I tried hitting them up on Insta to see what was going on but no reply.
jackiebond Man, i just found out this app not that long ago...by chance...i wish i did sooner like when it was really Poppin like 4years ago! Was you around during that time?
jackiebond Yo...@nuriel you should look into this event called "end of the weak" they be hosting these events all over the world. It's an emcee challenge. Instead of str8 up battle, there's 5 different challenges. Written, accapella, riding beat with dj switching speeds, grab bag, back and forth4 bars w/ another. It's sick!
jackiebond Daaaamn! We should start a contact list for all the producers and emcees who're trying to stay in touch and build with our music. Maybe this is what we need to finally actually start recording full songs and releasing some collabo albums. Like how "d&d" or "flava unit" or even the whole "self destruction" crew did!
