We thought you’d never ask.
Scouts are intelligent software bots that run in the cloud. Our Robotic Process Automation (RPA) tech manages heterogenous swarms of autonomous little bots that continuously search for relevant emerging artists that you need to hear right now. You have complete control over your personal Scout swarm. You can easily configure your Scouts as you wish on the fly, get dynamic playlists on Spotify, share artists and tracks or whole Scouts to colleagues on Slack, in a snap. Scouts never stop, they never get tired and they never fail to deliver promising artists.
Everywhere. Huggy, our distributed artist & influencer miner, continuously performs millions of web searches from multiple locations. Every day, Huggy scans millions of blogs, magazines, forums, social media, related sites, charts, and public APIs, from a huge range of popular fan communities (Reddit, Genius, TikTok etc) to every streaming service out there (YouTube, SoundCloud, Spotify etc). Huggy, your eyes and ears on every street, is uncovering new and exciting talent that you can sign now, every single second of the day.
Our Mass Appeal Signalling Framework (MASF) tech monitors and records the daily progress of the millions of artists Huggy discovers. MASF recognises and records key career events, learns relationships, and determines career stage, trajectory, velocity and influence. Our Emerging Artist Ranking (EAR) tech ranks artists and influencers in multiple ways, using proprietary algorithms based upon deep music industry knowledge and years of research. Scouts dynamically refer to such events and ranks to order the artists they uncover, combined with intelligent proprietary algorithms to determine relevance, to produce a constant stream of fresh and relevant latent talent.
We have labels, artist managers, music publishers, A&R researchers, bloggers and artists using our service. We also use it ourselves as it’s a great way to create banging playlists and discover hot new tunes.
Our Scouts utilise innovative left-field discovery techniques, enabling you to scout wider, deeper and faster than ever before. You don’t have one Scout, you have a swarm. And they never stop. Every day, you will find emerging artists on KWL that the analytics dashboards will not be aware of until it’s too late to sign them. Dashboards are best suited to data experts, to perform deep data analysis of the truly promising artists that your Scouts have uncovered and you may wish to sign. Hence KWL will work alongside analytics dashboards in a complementary way.
