Cofounded by Craig Marks, former top editor of Spin, Blender, and Billboard magazines, Popdust is purpose-built to train a critical, often funny lens on the Popular/Top 40 music genre.

Popdust was launched in February of 2011 with the direct participation of top-tier pop, hip-hop and country artists, who appear in original multimedia franchises. Popdust regularly creates and airs episodic original video content including Magic Box, Dear Dr. Popstar, and A Little Bit Obsessed. Popdust spoke to Lady Gaga about her #1 ranking on its Popdust 40, and went on-location at the red carpet of the VMA's with comedian Tig Notaro.

The company secured a $1 million Series A Round of financing led by Lerer Ventures on Feb. 3, 2011.

Popdust is a portfolio company of Gramercy Labs, founded by Kevin Fortuna, Philip James, Craig Marks and David Wade in 2010.
