A Hat Tip to UJAM, Our Brothers from TechCrunch Disrupt

UJAMNearly two weeks ago, Soluto participated in Disrupt, a startup conference run by TechCrunch, the renowned technology blog. Soluto won the Battlefield which was the startup competition portion of the event. This was both a shock and a great honor. But this post is not about us, it’s about a very cool startup called UJAM, which came-in as runner-up.

UJAM was the first startup to debut its product on stage, and boy did they set a high bar. With UJAM’s app users with practically no musical talent whatsoever can create astonishing music compositions. One of its coolest features is the ability to hum or whistle a tune into a microphone and have UJAM morph the tune as if it was originally played by an electric guitar or piano. Very cool stuff. Hands down, UJAM had a stellar demo (We’ve embedded some of it below).

By the final day of Disrupt, the buzz among attendees was that the two major contenders for the top prize were UJAM and Soluto. We certainly didn’t think it was in the bag. Ultimately though, Soluto was awarded the top spot, and we are humbled now as we were on-stage when we received it. This is especially true since we befriended the UJAM guys—Peter Gorges & Axel Hensen—and were cheering for them as well.

So to the good folks of UJAM: Gentleman, it was an honor to battle it out with you at Disrupt! Know that the entire Soluto Team are huge fans of yours and will be rooting for your success :)
