Expect a mash pit, not a mosh pit, at this weekend's Music Hack Day in London. Over 200 people will come together from the UK and across Europe for what the organizers call "the best industry to hack on, with the cleanest APIs and the most enjoyable content."
Yes.com is a unique community-oriented music site that provides real-time and historical information about songs played on United States terrestrial radio stations. Besides this up-to-the-minute database, Yes has social features like chat rooms for specific radio stations or for a specific artists, like the Yes.com Pink Floyd page showing which radio stations are currently playing or recently played Pink Floyd songs. In addition they also offer an API that developers can build on (our Yes API profile).
MixCloud is a combination of music discovery and promotion. It strives to serve the intersection of interests between listeners that want to find new and interesting music and artists that want to get their music in front of a wider audience. The idea is that you can get recommendations by following the music mavens of whichever genre you choose. Most people find new music through friends. Having a friend that’s plugged into the latest music trends keeps you jamming along to new stimulating tracks. Imagine if your friend’s knowledge of and refined taste in music were accessible by API. That’s what we’ve got with the MixCloud API.
