yeah. seems interesting.
shame you cant msg people on it but its only the beta i suppose,whats your user name on it?
...if you desire them, PM away.
Also, what are people's usernames so I can start getting DiS flow? I'm KevinEGPerry
I dread to think how much Zane Lowe is going to make from this service... seems like a nice idea but I just get the feeling making anything from it just isn't likely to happen
if zane and nme are being offered the sorts of figures they offered me/DiS to be a 'partner' i imagine he's done alright out of it.
interesting. i like the idea, especially for the idea of a person who sends loads of music to mates... but you guys could literally make a killing. in saying that, what would you do with the music credits, who get some of it for free anyway...
also i was thinking that myself and a friend could just "flow" albums to each other and buy them, and then sharing the mp3s out once we have bought a free one. no?
i find the whole idea of trying to make your friends buy something a bit odd. money is a murky matter at the best of times but the whole art, commerce and friendship dynamic is a bit of a mess.
plus dis users, on the whole, say they don't value digital files (and the digital sales figures for our releases back this up. it's different for different genres, obviously)
i actually buy emusic as well as the physical copies... and have a spotify subscription, whilst also religiously using last.fm. i don't really know where this will fit in for me, but i can imagine some iTunes users might be quite interested. i don't know.
but instead of tweeting you flow music you like to followers. if they choose to buy the track you've flowed you get 20% of the price to then spend in the store.
I mean it's pretty much a combination of last.fm and itunes, and i'd rather use those, so what's the point? I like that you get recommendations but i'll probably end up buying those albums of itunes/
if anyone wants to follow my shit
make me rich........
I have four invites, if anyone wants them
I want to like this but the catologue at the moment is pretty poor.
username - jnicoll btw
get me on MattRix
The catalogue is pretty poor though!
Haven't decided if it's going to be of any use yet... Doubt I'll be buying anything directly from it...
But I'm not really feeling it at all, tbh.
Plus, what Royter-Hatfood said. Hmmmn.
I'm thewza if you wanna follow my very possibly soon to be dormant account (if nothing other than flowing and re-flowing of 30 sec clips is what's occuring). :-/
a mix of this and spotify would work better me thinks.
Anyone got a spare invite code lying around...?
An invite would be lovely if anyone has a spare.
it might be cos its in beta but the catalogue is really limited - whats the point in only being able to listen to 30 second snatches of songs when I can send my mate a list of youtube or spotify links for recommendations I put together. I like the idea of getting your mates together and swapping recommendations but I can only see this working if people can listen to whole songs as many times as they want like Spotify. I buy a lot of music from Emusic and plug my gaps with iTunes when I have to and to be honest I cant see why I should be using this service at the current moment...
PM me your email address if you'd like one.
i have 9 invites left still as no-one really uses it yet, anybody want one? also in addition to QMAG27, N5M6E7 will also get u some freebies if u type it into the promotional code box.
