Every Thursday leading up to New Skool Rules, we do a demo listening session on Zoom, with an IG live guest.

In the prior weeks we had multi-grammy award winning producers Needlz, Focus, Rook Flair, Chuck Creekmur and Success as guests.

This week we switch gears and ask The founder and CEO of Beatstars to  join us.

Abe Batshon founded the pioneering beat licensing platform BeatStars in 2008 after discovering the lack of a digital music marketplace tailored for collaboration between music producers and recording artists. Abe formed the initial concept of BeatStars in High School during the mid-90’s as an aspiring songwriter while connecting with music producers in AOL chatrooms. Growing up in the gang- infested streets of Hayward, California to Palestinian refugee parents, his family couldn’t afford to purchase exclusive rights to beats so he then would haggle with producers online for $10-$20 in exchange for non-exclusive rights to beats, thus the idea for BeatStars was born.


Submit your demo through this link and join us for de zoom demo listening session.

After enlisting you will receive a zoom link where you can upload your mp3. Without uploading your track you can’t get feedback from Abe Batshon.
