You’ll be able to meet your fellow TTers in person and grab some of that sweet swag we posted about a few days ago!
Can’t make the meet-up but still want swag? Don’t worry, we’re going to be mailing out stickers and pins as prizes for a recurring DJ contest that’ll start on Thursday! We’ll post more info on that next week!
Be sure to share this post both on tumblr and in your favorite turntable rooms so that the whole turntable community knows whats up!
WE HAVE STICKERS! We’re going to be giving them out as prizes and at turntable meet-ups! Stay tuned!
We added a nice update to our UI today! The queue has been streamlined! Now when you search for songs, you’ll see songs from your queue first, then songs from the turntable library second. Also, you can upload songs by clicking the upload button or by dragging them from your desktop directly onto your queue! This update also brings improved performance for users with bigger queues, who were previously experiencing slow loading issues. We hope you guys like it!
It’s been quite the week for Aer — did you see their album hit #1 on the iTunes charts? Come hear the alt-reggae duo’s new tunes and more, right now!
I love Turntable FM, such a great way to make music interactive. Especially with producers. I was in the Ambient Chillout and Trip Hop room and was talking to this guy about music, and it led me to his Soundcloud.
He goes by Coastlines and it’s classified as Downtempo Electronic but honestly it represents so much more.
Yay! We love when users discover each other’s music on our site!
Today’s #RoomSpotlight is Chill Or Be Chilled. I know they were spotlighted recently, but I wanted to let you guys know about this cool event they’re going to be doing every Wednesday from now until Halloween, check it out:
Chill Or Be Chilled presents “Spin Your Own”, a series exploring the music of some of the original artists which can be found DJing right here on Turntable alongside the rest of us. Join us every Wednesday through Halloween.
We are kicking off the series this coming Wednesday, August 1st with Jenova 7 and Esbe.
Jenova 7 is nom de plume of Michael J. Sirois, Boston born downtempo trip-hop artist and independent filmmaker. He currently lives in Los Angeles. He is a member of the Dusted Wax Kingdom label. His genres include trip-hop, abstract hip-hop, downtempo and jazz. His albums include Soul For Sale, Dusted Jazz Volume One and Dusted Jazz Volume Two.
Esbe (formerly S.B) is a Los Angeles based beatsmith, collecting and manipulating sounds to produce Trip-Hop, Hip-Hop and Experimental Chillout music. Esbe’s music carries that East-Coast/Krush/Samurai fusion of blunted downtempo beats, spiced with jazzy and soulful tasty ingredients.
Joss Stone is our special guest in today’s #RoomSpotlight, Turntable Tuesday! Come chat with Joss as she plays tracks from her new album at 6pm EDT.
