Last night was, to say the least, a big night for turntable.fm and #AnonFM. At 9PM ET, Knife Party stopped by #AnonFM to stream their upcoming EP, Haunted House.

Spread The Love
Tuesday was our first office-wide Hackday at Turntable. Our frontend developer Dan decided to mine our database for data about how songs spread between users.

Turntable, Artists and Fans
Last night we had one of our biggest events in turntable history when the Australian house/dubstep duo Knife Party played a spontaneous show in #AnonFM. We had over 1,300 simultaneous users in the same room, almost double our previous record set by Passion Pit. It was crazy!

Please set an email and password
Some time ago, we made it mandatory for new users creating an account to set an email and password. We recently began requiring all users, even ones who made their accounts a long time ago, to set an email and password. This is to reduce the number of people whose accounts get completely lost as a result of some random bug with Twitter or Facebook. Sometimes a user will change their Twitter...

A message about our new design
Thank you all for the amazing feedback we’ve gotten over the past day. I wanted to take a second and address a few things. Our mission at turntable.fm has been to create an experience where people can gather and play music together online. So it has always frustrated me that we’ve had to block users from entering rooms once 200 people are in them. It’s also not the greatest strategy for trying...
