  • Your Guide To Music On The Web – Part #1

    I’m a Web fanatic, I admit. But you probably already knew that… My work environment has been completely web based for years now. The same applies to my music. Like many people, I used to download music from Kazaa or eMule (Yeah, I know some of you still do). Most of the time now, I listen to music on the web and don’t have any need to download it. My laptop benefits the most… Read More

  • Pay-For-Play Comes To Online Radio. Is That a Bad Thing?

    When it comes to promoting new music, pay-for-play schemes are generally frowned upon. The practice, which involves music labels or artists paying radio stations to play their songs in heavy rotation, dates back to the beginnings of terrestrial radio. It got so bad in the 1950s that Congress had to intervene, but it keeps rearing its head in new forms. Now, pay-for-play has hit online radio. Read More

  • MeeMix Opens Beta To Public, Has Much Work Ahead

    Tel Aviv, Israel based MeeMix, which we first covered in August, is kicking-off the New Year by moving their taste-predicting Internet radio service from closed to open Beta. Internet radio is already a very crowded space dominated by entrenched startups like Last.fm and Pandora. Smaller players and recent entrants such as SpiralFrog, Jango and Slacker are not increasing the breathing room. Read More

  • Confessions of a Jango Junkie

    It’s been a little over a month since we reported on Jango and a lot of exciting things have been happening. Their stable of music has expanded, though it still needs a bit of work, but we’re willing to bear with it as their catalog improves. Since their public launch in November they’ve enlisted 180,000 registered users and 750,000 listeners who have created over 1.5… Read More

  • Jango: Social radio done right

    Moving to NYC revived my faith in music as I often frequented popular venues like the Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, Pianos and other hotbeds for new music. I haven’t been to a show in quite some time, which has resulted in me listening to the same albums I’ve been listening to for the last four months. It really sucks because music helps me get through an otherwise monotonous… Read More

  • Beta Invites For Social Music Site Jango

    Say hello to Jango. No, not Jenga, though, that’s a bitchin’ game to play when you’re having a few tasty beverages, but I digress. Jango is a fresh and interesting spin on streaming radio. It brings a social networking dynamic that can be found elsewhere, but it sets itself apart from the rest of the pack because of its music-centric nature. The social network is just an… Read More

  • First Dash Contest Entrant

    Amazing. Our first entry in the Dash giveaway is from Jango Fett, who suggest that if I pick up a cellphone he’ll blast me. Thanks, dude. I feel much better now. Just to recap: I am not allowed to use a cellphone for one month. I need you to hop on your web cam and record a one minute video telling me to be strong. Or if you’re sadistic like Blake, feel free to taunt me with some… Read More
