Recently, I had come across and written a general overview of one music startup based out of Germany that is becoming of rapidly growing interest among the world’s music lovers. It’s quite easy to get very attached very fast and be clamoring after an invite to start a profile of your own. (More on that later.)
The company and service, ladies and gentlemen, is Musicplayr: a music sharing and discovery platform that combines the best of simplicity, social interactivity and most importantly, a singular focus on music. Several sources like Hypebot, Tech Crunch, and even the Wall Street Journal have taken note of its potential. The way I’ve given the “five second description” to my friends is to say, “Think of the Musicplayr profile format as the combination of having a Facebook wall and instead of friends, you have Twitter-type “Followers.” The catch is, you don’t post just anything to your “wall.” Musicplayr’s entire premise revolves around one step linking to songs from various outlets around the internet where you find songs you like. (e.g. YouTube, SoundCloud, Vimeo, Dailymotion, etc.) Copy a URL, click “Link it” and that’s all there is to it!
