Qyuki and YouTube announce a new content property - 'Jammin'
With about 80% YoY growth in consumption of YouTube content in India, we are in the midst of the great Indian content creator revolution. At the FanFest last week, Qyuki in partnership with YouTube announced the birth of new musical property - Jammin. A web series with Bollywood composers and internet music superstars who will come together to create monster tracks. With music seeing a whopping 92% growth, this is absolutely earcandy news. ain't it?
The phenomenon that some of these kids have become through YouTube is just amazing. I have in fact worked with some of them and they are doing a fantastic job. I am sure a lot of my contemporaries feel the same way. It will be really exciting to help these kids reach a new milestone in their careers, and to be a part of it. A great initiative by Qyuki & YouTube, one that I am really looking forward to.

Drive time
awesome, listen up!
"If you're driving between 9-10
am in Mumbai. you know Hrishi
K on 94.3 Radio One. And
Hrishi K knows his music! The
best English music and the
most interesting guests on the
show, from Bollywood to
domain experts in every field
(and no, this was not a plug for
me but wait for it...). So after
many moons of promising to
get together on the show,
Hrishi and I finally locked a
date - the ides of March!
We chatted about Qyuki, what
we do, more importantly our
fantastic pool of artists and of
course startups in general. Was
worth the wait for me!"

dropped the bass!
What's the best way to pay tribute to one of the greatest Indian producers ever? Make a kickass cover by acappelling it up with one of India's best rappers Enkore, internet superstar Shraddha Sharma, b boys and just watch everyone GO NUTS!

Our talented homeboys Aflatunes, whipped up a cover tune for Nucleya's entire Bass Rani album in a brand new avatar without as much as a MIDI controller to reproduce that thumping bass. 147 vocal layers make up the entire video with each sound produced individually to lift up the life in each song! The video is a crazy walk starting from "Chennai Bass" all the way to the serenading sounds of "Laung Gawacha", this is one wild ride!
And guess what? The boss himself showed the video a whole lotta love.
