My Music: The First 15,607 Days

My Music: The First 15,607 Days

Tweet We both heard the same beat in the beginning, but where did you go from there? Perhaps you discovered one or two favorite styles then settled back to explore similar bands. Some of my friends have stayed  hovering around one genre since the day I met them, never venturing out to try something different or perhaps checking out a track or two but then scurrying back to the familiarity of the soundtrack of their youth. I’m a [...]
From DJ to VJ: Spotify and YouTube

From DJ to VJ: Spotify and YouTube

Tweet Tubufy and SpotMyVideo are two new webapps that create YouTube-powered music video channels from your Spotify playlists. Whereas sites like Playlistify.org can convert a YouTube playlist into a Spotify one, Tubufy and SpotMyVideo do the reverse: feed them a Spotify link to generate your own custom music video playlist on YouTube.   SpotMyVideo SpotMyVideo is ideal if you only have a few songs to check out. Go to the site then [...]

truShuffle: An As-You-Listen Spotify Playlist Maker

Tweet Spotify’s Related Artists tab may act as a basic music recommendation service, but it’s left to the 3rd-party webapps to provide a more personal experience. Sites like Spotibot, Spotiseek and even ShareMyPlaylists all offer a way to generate a playlist for you, either based on an artist name or by checking what you’ve been listening to via Last.fm. A cool new service – truShuffle – has just launched [...]

App Review: ShareMyPlaylists on Android

Tweet ShareMyPlaylists.com is the top Spotify playlist-sharing site. With close to 45 thousand playlists, no other playlist sharing site comes close in terms of catalog or features.

TechCrunch have covered the iPad version, so here’s a look at ShareMyPlaylists on Android. ShareMyPlaylists [...]

His Majesty’s Starship Derbyshire: A Science-Fiction Story with Spotify Soundtrack

Tweet Towards the end of 1980, His Majesty’s Starship Derbyshire, the pride of the British Space Agency fleet, blasted off into Outer Space on a mission of imperial urgency. The Derbyshire was crewed by six of Britain’s finest astronauts, hastily trained to prepare for a task of extraordinary circumstance.

Placeshifting Your Music to Android Smartphones

Placeshifting Your Music to Android Smartphones

Tweet Although Spotify has over 10 million songs, there are sometimes bands I’d like to listen who aren’t on there yet: The Beatles, Rammstein, Arcade Fire, Oasis and some of these bands too. Spotify also lacks audiobooks and audio-drama (such as the excellent Big Finish Doctor Who range), so there are occasions when you’re forced to listen to those things your grandparents talk about: MP3 files. Since I listen to music [...]
A Delicious Way to Manage Spotify Playlists

A Delicious Way to Manage Spotify Playlists

Tweet CAUTION – THIS PAGE IS PROBABLY NOW OUT-OF-DATE Managing Spotify playlists has always been tricky whenever you have more than a few dozen playlists to keep track of: you soon end up with a big long list of albums and playlists that’s difficult to search through. As a workaround, I  used the Firefox Bookmark Manager to store my “overspill” of playlists (where a playlist is usually an album or custom list of songs). [...]

My Top 10 Tracks: The Pansentient League

My Top 10 Tracks: The Pansentient League

Tweet If you read this blog then chances are you love music. Music has inspired me throughout my life: in fact according to my mum, when I was a toddler I pointed my chubby little baby finger at the family record player and spoke my very first word: “ec-cord!” I’ve listened to a lot of records since then. And cassette tapes. And CDs. And MP3s. And Spotify streams. I’ve been to hundreds of gigs, sat through recording [...]
