(AllHipHop News) Statik Selektah, Prince Paul, Erick Sermon, Hank Shocklee, QuestLove and others have come together to endorse Tracklib, a new service that makes clearing samples easier.
Tom Silverman, the founder of iconic Hip-Hop label Tommy Boy Records, has also joined in to support the new initiative.
Tracklib is a new service that makes it “easy and affordable for artists and producers to clear samples legally,” a statement says.
The Swedish start-up offers an online marketplace where producers can find, purchase and license samples from thousands of original recordings. Some tracks start at $1.99. A statement from the company says, “What iTunes did for downloads and Spotify did for streaming, Tracklib is on track to do for music sampling.”
The service has a catalog of over 50,000 tracks and it continues to grow with a selection from all genres of music.
