MUSIC XRAY's HOOKBLAST PODCAST offers: a weekly 10-minute snapshot of the catchiest part of several yet-to-be-discovered songs as determined by a combination of fan feedback, professional opinions, and machine-powered discovery.
MUSIC XRAY is the platform built to clue A&R and music supervisors into emerging artists with strong hit potential — before these artists ever make their first deal. HOOKBLAST PODCAST is available to stream for free on iTUNES, STITCHER RADIO, PODOMATIC andon the iPHONE PODCAST app. ,Listeners can hear the hooks of a dozen new tracks that are bubbling up on the platform, which uses the combined power of human review and machine learning to identify promising new songs.
Commented MUSIC XRAY CEO MIKE McCREADY: “We’re a filter. We're the only company able to crowdsource the industry's top ears and to know in real time what's truly next. The songs and acts we feature are chosen only from the top songs bubbling up within the private access data available only to industry professionals with MUSIC XRAY accounts. So a peek behind this curtain for everyone else is what makes this podcast compelling.”
McCREADY was co-founder and CEO of POLYPHONIC HMI, a company that launched a technology in the mid-2000s called HIT SONG SCIENCE, a purely software-based approach to predicting hit songs.
