Kickstarter Buys Streaming Music Service Drip

Kickstarter announced today that it swooped in to purchase Drip, which also serves as a community for independent labels, just a day before the streaming service was set to shut down. […] “Like Kickstarter, artists on Drip enjoy closer connections to the fans who help sustain their work. And fans enjoy early access to new releases, rare tracks, unique experiences, visual art, exclusive video, writing, and beyond,” the crowdfunding site said in a statement. “At heart, we’ve been on similar paths.” – Ashlee Kieler, Consumerist
