Mixcloud’s latest Android app could help dance music lovers rediscover radio

This application’s updated user interface leads to a different personalized feed that lets its users build a radio station out of their favorite shows and DJ sets.  And a new "Discover" tab that Mixcloud describes as a "Netflix-like" page frequently points out radio shows users are most likely to enjoy.

Mixcloud's major and the closest competitor in the music upload market is the SoundCloud. But unlike SoundCloud’s service, Mixcloud's users are not allowed to upload individual songs to the service. Mixcloud users instead create their favorite 'shows' from eight or even some more tracks and then upload them with a supplied track list to ensure the creators of copyrighted songs receive some royalties. Mixcloud has also tried to differentiate itself from the SoundCloud by appealing specifically to some producers and consumers of electronic music genre.

Mixcloud’s playlists are stocked with cuts from about 500,000 'partners' that include some of the top-line electronic artists, some taste-making blogs, and also some aspiring bedroom DJs.

Almost any Mixcloud user can upload shows to the service which are then sorted democratically: shows and sets that get played the most of the times get foremost placement on its popularity charts, regardless of their creator. Its recommendation system is also solid too, offering some granular categories particularly suited to dance music. Lovers of dubstep, EDM, and also deep house will find themselves well served by some easy to create feeds that use a tag system to inform of new shows relevant to their interests.

Like all of their new Android app come an update to Mixcloud's iOS version of the app, both updates are now available on the Google PlayStore and Apple's App Store. Mixcloud also offers unlimited storage for free, so the budding radio stars would not need to worry about paying up for a subscription plan for storage.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
