RADITAZ has joined forces with THE ECHO NEST to deliver a new and better way for audiences to create personalized RADITAZ stations, and to discover more artists and tracks within these stations. By bringing in ECHO NEST data to 14 million songs, RADITAZ claims it has more music and a better engine to discover music vs. the competition.
"This ECHO NEST partnership is huge, and dramatically improves the quality of the music our users have access to, and their experience creating and listening to personalized music stations," said RADITAZ Founder/CEO TOM BROPHY. "This integration means higher-quality stations, with better targeting, and less repetition -- typically major areas of concern across the board with Internet radio platforms. We look forward to building and innovating even further with support from THE ECHO NEST."
"RADITAZ combines the best elements of the listening experience -- discoverability, customization, tagging and sharing," said ECHO NEST CEO JIM LUCHESSE. "By integrating with THE ECHO NEST's music intelligence platform, RADITAZ now also features the most powerful 'music DNA' possible. We hope to deliver a great listening experience to RADITAZ users worldwide."
RADITAZ is launching an updated version of its iOS app, ANDROID app, and the web version TODAY (4/5) as well, which will all utilize the new ECHO NEST integration. Users can customize stations using tags (i.e. "driving," "working out"), location information, ratings ("rock on" vs. "thumbs down"), artist or song selections, and popularity. RADITAZ is on the web and can be downloaded from the iTUNES APP STORE or the ANDROID Market.
