Conduit Labs

Conduit Labs is the largest provider of music games on the web, creating a new model for monetizing music and other media through fun social games.

Conduit Labs is the largest holder of music rights of any music games company, and driven to make the opportunity for music games even larger than the opportunity for music videos 20 years ago. We believe digital media will need to find ways to engage with users in deeper, more interactive, and lasting ways in order to flourish in the new media landscape.

The founders come from a background in web and gaming, being involved in the popular music games Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and in the pioneering massive multiplayer game Asheron’s Call. They are backed by Charles River Ventures and Prism Ventures.

Loudcrowd is an online music community focused on music gaming and virtual goods. Loudcrowd users listen to a constant stream of new music while playing an evolving and connected series of music-themed games with friends. By playing, users earn a variety of virtual goods for use within the site including music tracks that can be collected to customize group playlists.

Loudcrowd entered in public beta in March of 2009 at SXSW. As of March of 2009 it currently has more than 50 artists and over 250 songs including Justice, Phoenix, Santigold, Friendly Fires, and unreleased tracks from The Twelves.
