Ideabove announced today the release of the updated version of Swizzle, the first social network designed specifically for legally sharing music videos with friends. Going beyond the limited services offered by other music download and sharing sites, Swizzle’s one-stop approach lets users “crowdsource” playlists for specific events of themes.
Receiving acclaim and honors at the beGLOBAL 2014 conference in San Francisco on September 12, the Korean startup attended the Startup Bootcamp at the event, a global tech conference designed to bring the best Korean startups to Silicon Valley to enter the global market and attract foreign investment. “We were honored to be selected as the winning team to attend beGLOBAL and the two-week Startup Bootcamp,” said Ian Inyoung Lee, Ideabove’s CEO. “We were very pleased to see so much support for our collaborative music app, and came away from the event with even more great ideas for helping people share music with others.”
The social jukebox makes collaboration easier. Users can share with friends, or with listers anywhere in the world. “Swizzle mission is to rely on legal, open sources of music, to allow people to build their own music playlists with the help of other like-minded people anywhere in the world,” said Ian. “You can build your own playlists for every occasion, share them, or ask other listers to contribute their suggestions. With the help of others, it’s easy to build a playlist that’s perfect for your special event, or to enjoy new music in any category you’re sure to love.”
Swizzle supports continuous play and background play, with the ability to tag each song by mood, situation or genre. The tagging system makes recommending music easy and accurate. The uses are endless, and Swizzle would be ideal for creating a playlist for a party, keeping up to date on new songs from specific artists or in certain categories, or even for bands to get new ideas. Most of all, Swizzle is a social app, and users will enjoy meeting new people who share the same taste in music.
Within the multi-billion dollar digital music industry, users are most interested in music discovery, but options have been limited, with other options offering limited search, poor discovery and inadequate sharing, because they rely on a limited circle of friends or a canned algorithm. Swizzle goes a step beyond, creating a lawful music sharing platform that brings in the best of everything, with personal recommendations, technology and easy interaction.
