BandLab Technologies, a Singapore-based social music-making platform, has recently acquired Chew.tv, a video streaming service for DJs to show off their mixing skills.
Chew.tv was launched as an online community for aspiring and professional DJs in 2015. In July, the company was able to build a community of more than 380,000 member who have created 120,000 hours of content.
However, in December, the company’s streaming infrastructure was “heavily misused” by a nefarious hacker. “The abuse cost is more than we can afford, and the combined total of that and our regular running costs is enough to put us out of business,” the company emailed users in March.
In a statement, Meng Ru Kuok, BandLab CEO and co-founder, said: “I am very pleased that Chew will now be supported by the BandLab team. For the past two years I’ve been closely watching the growth and development of this great platform and community of DJs. One of the most important parts of being a musician today is performing live, and as an extension of that, it’s extremely important for us to be able to digitally support creators and musicians who want to bring their live performances to the world”.
