Tracklib Debuts, Enables Music Creators to Discover, Sample, License Original Recordings

Today marks the global launch of Tracklib, the world’s first and only music service that enables music creators to discover, sample and license original recordings.

The origin of music sampling dates back decades and has steadily gained popularity throughout the years with sample-based songs frequently sitting atop the Billboard Hot 100 charts and out-performing the songs they’ve sampled.
