Avid NSD reader PleasureYoMomz (he’s still working on a name but thought this would do for now) decided to take his loudly stated opinions, 99% of which are centered around the absolutely-not supported-by NSD hatred of Apple products, Dave Matthews Band, and Starbucks, and put pen to paper and write something for us. It’s on music (besides DMB, which was good in high school, come on) that we see eye to eye, and Pleasure is dead on in his love for Soundrop. Let’s hope YoMomz comes back and gives us some more thoughts. Actually, given our staff’s unabashed love for Apple, maybe a For and Against article would be an order. If YoMomz can actually put together a series of points that make any sense against Apple, we’d be happy to craft an easy rebuttal (something like: if you don’t have apple products you are an idiot). Enough talk. Soundrop is awesome. I’ll let him do the talking from here.
A while back NSD posted about services like turntable.fm. The concept was great, the execution not so much. But now with the recent popularity explosion of Spotify, third parties are creating incredible add-ons to an already incredible service. Enter Soundrop. Sounddrop allows you to join genre or band specific rooms where everyone can add songs and vote on which get played first. Think Reddit but for songs. You can also make private rooms or limit who can add songs and vote. Apparently the future for this is to have big artists guest DJ the rooms to promote their shows and albums. I’m normally not sexually excited by anything non-Rosie Jones but since Soundrop I’ve literally had to start buying pants with extra-large crotches to support the raging boners this thing causes.
