This unique platform lets fans pick up digital “Klouds” of content from their favorite artists, giving them pre-release tracks, behind-the-scenes videos, exclusive photos, interviews and more. Artists can drop Klouds at festivals, concerts, clubs, gigs… anywhere… to connect with fans. Fans can discover unique music, videos and exclusive content from their favorite artists and new artists they’ve never heard of and save their DropKloud content.
