With 40-50 Billion plays per month, Epidemic Sound has created a monster of a parallel music industry where the rules are different. Not only are they solving a huge challenge for modern content creators wanting to utilize music in their productions, they also both pay music creators cash up front for their music and share revenue of music streamed via platforms like Spotify 50/50 with them. That is a game-changer.
In this first part of a two-part conversation with CEO and co-founder Oscar "Pigge" Höglund, we talk about his life and entrepreneurship and also veer off into the weeds of philosophy. In part two, coming out next week, we dig deep into Epidemic Sound. Trust me, you don't want to miss either. Love you all.
