Want to hear and be heard? The free app I have mocked up is called Scramble. Basically it serves as a way for brand new artists to capture our short attention span within a mobile environment. Scramble is a hub for uploading your own tracks and downloaded your friends. An app that serves as a sharing platform for hot off the grill original media. As a musician or just a seeker of new music, Scramble would randomly throw you into a mix of brand new uploaded tracks every time it is launched. Scramble will then pick its own favored tracks weekly for the front page! Within the app, you will be able to keep a record of your personal favorites and put them on a playlist to better keep tabs on up and coming artists. Apps such as Spotify and Soundcloud have similar features but the difference with Scramble is its radius based updates. Within the pull down menu you can select Scramble to randomize tracks that have been uploaded in your local area.
Scramble takes music form your neighborhood.
Customize your profile and tell us who inspires you.
From this point you can develop a relationship with a local artist and perhaps start some connection. This is not a top 40 type of radio app, this is a homegrown, individually publicized marketing tool for the hardworking musician. Want to be a bit more creative? Scramble allows you to take and upload your own photos as a part of your press kit to better entice an eager listener. Find your friends in the search bar located on the top left and follow each others playlist! Upload to your hearts content and make a splash into the ever expanding music world.
Not to be confused with the popular nursery home game “Yahtzee“, the Aussie sampler Yahtzel slays it with his newest single High With Me. You are thinking what I’m thinking right? I mean, NY is great and all but lets give some props to The Aussies for pumping out some amazing electric. The single is a hip hop progression battling with off time marimbas, screwed up samples and earthquake claps. Piano being on the forefront is a flawless choice much like a close counter part, ODESZA. This track literally does what is says, takes you high with Yahtzel. Can you picture yourself rolling through a city at night in slow motion with some good friends headed to a killer party? I hope you feel as welcomed as I do within this dub electric, single hand waving, house party banger. ENJOY…
Like I mentioned above, ODESZA is a MUST listen too.
Grab buckets of neon colored paint, an over sized canvas and make some art! Wisconsin duo, French Horn Rebellion is a hot heat in the “lose all inhibitions” pop scene. Standing with other greats, (Yelle, MGMT, Cut Copy) French Horn is getting the deserved respect in addition with their new single, Caaalifornia. This song features Ghost Beach as well as slappy bass lines, funky riffs and a whole bucket of chopped tones. The Ingredients mix for a perfect feel good arena pop anthem.
Need more Cali post-summer juice? The featured artist in the single Ghost Beach brings the tropic grit for days.
