Former Universal Music Group and ESL executives come together to connect up-and-coming music artists with the global gaming community

Five Vectors Inc, a music startup that works with up-and-coming artists and produces brand new music tracks that are tailor-made for gaming audiences, announced today a $1 million seed round, led by BITKRAFT Esports Ventures. Through direct partnerships with some of the gaming industry’s biggest publishers and esports organizations, tracks produced by Five Vectors will become the legendary anthems for esports teams, leagues, and games to be enjoyed by millions of players and viewers around the world.

The company has produced over 80 audio tracks and signed up-and-coming artists and multiple producers. Five Vectors has partnered with esports and gaming companies to create music for Rainbow Six Siege esports, anthems for the SK Gaming’s League of Legends team, soundtracks for Playbrain’s esports initiatives in Japan, as well as other global partnerships.

“We are extremely proud to welcome Jens and the BITKRAFT Esports Ventures family as an investor in Five Vectors,” said Andres Lauer, CEO and co-founder of Five Vectors Inc. “We see a powerful overlap between music and gaming and created Five Vectors to fill the gap in the industry by providing customized music solutions for the global gaming audience.

The co-founders, Andres Lauer and Wasae Imran, have merged their extensive music and esports experience as former executives at Universal Music Group and ESL to create a company that enables upcoming artists to gain exposure to an ever-growing audience of gamers and game publishers. Additionally, companies that are looking to stream to a global audience have access to streamlined international music licensing rights through the catalogue of wholly-owned music that Five Vectors offers. This initial seed funding will be used to attract additional music talent and continue to develop an integrated tech stack to make music more accessible to game publishers, platforms, teams, leagues and creators across the gaming and esports industries.

“Music and games are coming together in new ways, and what we see happening in this crossover are really magical and powerful new entertainment experiences. With our investment in Five Vectors, we are supporting an incredibly ambitious team that has subscribed itself entirely to music experiences and technology in gaming and esports,” said BITKRAFT founder and managing partner, Jens Hilgers. “Simply speaking, Five Vectors is bringing new music for gamers and gaming. The technology that Five Vectors is developing under the hood is true innovation in the music space.”

Metric Gaming provides Sportsbook to ManiSol GamingReading Time: 2 minutes

 

Metric Gaming confirms sportsbook launch for InAndOutBet.com, ManiSol Gaming’s Northern European focussed Pay N Play® casino and sports betting brand.

Through a 2019 partnership with Together Gaming, InAndOutBet.com’s customers benefit from some of the best casino game and content providers in the industry with the convenience of instant, hassle-free deposits and withdrawals. Metric’s modern sportsbook proposition is an exciting addition to a brand that is looking to do things differently.

Speaking about the successful launch, Metric Gaming’s CEO Martin de Knijff said:

“We have been impressed by the whole ManiSol team from the start. We are excited about the potential of InAndOutBet and grateful for the trust ManiSol have shown in us and our product to deliver an important vertical for their growth plans.

This launch, our first full sportsbook, is a significant milestone for Metric and we are eager to showcase our unique capabilities. InAndOutBet will benefit from a best-in-class sportsbook proposition that will be fully localised in each country the brand operates, with negligible incremental costs for each new configuration.

Crucially, this includes pricing autonomy for every market, every selection on the sportsbook. This is so important for international brands these days due to the conflicting taxation rules introduced internationally. This will be a significant competitive advantage over their rivals, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to contribute to ManiSol’s success.”

Erik Gilstring, COO at ManiSol Gaming added:

“At first, we were unsure of using an untested sportsbook product. However, once we met the team at Metric and saw the capabilities of their products, we were excited to have access to this new technology.

We are confident we have secured the most modern sports betting product available on the market for our customers and are pleased to have added another high quality, innovative vertical to our growing brand.”

Metric Gaming is licensed and regulated by the UK Gambling Commission and holds a Class 4 Gaming Licence from Malta’s Gaming Authority.
