Crowdsourcing new music for 2016!

Ahoy there!

For 2016 I’m looking to broaden my outlook with music, and not just listen to what Radio 1, Radio X etc decide is their “track of the week”. So if you have Spotify, I’d like to crowd-source some new music. I’ve made a collaborative playlist (which means anyone can add to it).

Basically if you hear something (ideally new) that you think “cor that’s freaking awesome”, please add it to this list.

I don’t care of the genre, my tastes are pretty eclectic anyway. I experimented with this back when Spotify launched in 09 and it worked quite well so let’s see how well this works!

There’s no easy way to follow a playlist from this link, so just click Play on Spotify, then you’ll be able to follow it.

(People with Spotify installed can use this URI to launch Spotify directly)

If anyone’s interested, here’s how the first experiment went

Spotify Invites

Update: Blimey that was quick! All gone for the moment, I should have a couple more on or around the 17th June. If anyone wants to post any more on here in the meantime in the comments, feel free!

I thought I’d add these here. I get 2 a month for being on Premium, these are for Spotify Free, simply paste in the invite code on that page!

NB: These will only work in countries where Spotify is available, currently: Sweden, Norway, Finland, the UK, France, Spain or The Netherlands.

If it doesn’t work, try the next one in the list. I’ll add more as I get them each month and cross out the used ones!

The Mondays!

This is a brief one from me, and for once isn’t a rant (although I’m still awaiting anything from Dirty Microbe!)

Over the weekend, my friends’ band, The Mondays, did their first “gig” at a street party on the Isle of Sheppey. To say they were nervous and their drummer was on holiday they sounded AWESOME.

Definitely a band  to keep an eye on in the future.

I have assumed the role of techie dude for them, so it’s down to me to make the website and deal with all the videos and styling side!

I’ve already started so check out….
