London based Marie Dahlstrom Releases Like Sand

Look out for London based artist Marie Dahlstrom. She just released the track Like Sand (feat Beau Diako) which comes off her soon to be released debut album.  She mashes R&B, soul and jazz. I like it because it’s not pop, it’s experimental, with no big hooks, but tons of vibe. Listen to the album in the background and let it do its work. She’s won support from blogs like Complex, Line of Best Fit, EarMilk, and Wonderland – and playlisted on Spotify’s Bedroom Jams, R&B UK, and Spotify and Chil...

Stream Pandora on Apple Watch without an iPhone

Pandora’s upcoming app for Apple Watch gives you unlimited music streaming from your wrist with no extras needed.

So other than being able to see what you’re streaming without reaching into your pocket there wasn’t much point. Pandora’s new standalone music app for Apple Watch makes streaming a solely watch-based experience. As long as your Apple Wa...

How producers are mastering tracks for music streaming services (video)

In the age of music streaming we are hearing music differently. Not just with where it comes from, but quite literally with how it sounds. You might not know, though keen ears will probably have noticed, that streaming services normalise tracks. This means the mix is altered, whether the artist or producer likes it or not, so that all of the music on a service follows a similar level – it’s normalised. This video explains what that means, how streaming services are doing it, and most i...
