I'm curious, what type of music does your friend produce?
I can only speak as a fan of that genre, but nearly every day SoundCloud is like Christmas to me. Producers release lots of 'in progress' (ID) tracks, and then follow it up with full-length previews. I really like the constant stream of new music from many of my favorite producers.
For lesser known artists, I'm sure it's unfortunately easy to get lost in a sea of noise.
As a designer, I love the player UI and real-time commenting. With the waveform as the 'slider' it serves both as a large and effective UI on mobile - much better than trying to move the dot on the Spotify player for example. Additionally, having it begin in the center of the screen (on mobile), there's a generous amount of space to touch and drag it to a new section in the track.
The waveform also helps you remember, find, and go back to your favorite parts in a track or podcast (where I find it especially useful). I would love it if Spotify were to 'borrow' this design.
The time-based comment system is really appealing to. I enjoy seeing how people react to sections of tracks, specific sounds, and the community in general.
It would be a really sad day for me if SoundCloud ever has to close it's doors for good.
Those gave me an idea for a skee-ball volume 'game'. 100(%) would be the easiest, Mute would be the most difficult.
I like the US Air Force logo. However I don't like that font. I think a condensed font would look better here, imo.
In a similar position at a startup. I love that I own design, but I'd like someone to bounce ideas off of and collaborate with.
It is challenging, but in its own way rewarding. I won't do it again though, unless I'm working for myself.
Has anyone attended, or planning to attend, this festival? I'm going to be near there for LET IT ROLL. I think I might attend it for a couple days.
Hi, I'm curious, I've never heard of this format, what medium is it for?
I'm only familiar with Gydra, from that label, but I will check out the podcast. Thanks!
I would find it difficult to work without listening to music. Does it make me more productive? I don't know, but I feel more engaged when I do.
I listen to a lot of neurofunk drum & bass, e.g., Noisia, Current Value, Mefjus, Hybris, Phace, etc. Here's a link to my Spotify playlist.
If you're a fan of this style and want to discover new music, I highly suggestion listening to Noisia Radio. Here's a link to the Dutch trios weekly Friday show on SoundCloud.
Here's my custom Pac Man decal that incorporates the Apple logo.
