History of darwinbeats

Originally launched in 2015 as a user-curated, indie music app, darwinbeats enabled artists to promote their latest songs and garner feedback from users. Over 9000 artists signed up to the app, enabling tracks to get up or downvoted through its unique authentic discovery features.

Acquisition and re-launch

In the summer of 2020, darwinbeats was acquired by Iconica, a UK-based media company, to continue its legacy in a new direction, while aligning the original brand’s core values in helping artists to get discovered.

darwinbeats officially re-launched in October 2020 as an online music platform with a new digital publication along with two web portals for talents and brands – darwinbeats Talents and darwinbeats Publicity.
