Double Twist

Mobile app combines 13 million song online library with listener's local tracks to create custom streams

Thought this looked cool: an Android mobile app called Magic Radio that creates custom streams of music that combines 7Digital's 13 million-song library with the listener's local collection and playlists.

The app, made by a company called Double Twist, uses music intelligence from The Echo Nest to create the streams, which can be further customized by the user. Note that when music from the listener's local collection is part of the stream, there's savings in both data usage/bandwidth, and royalty obligation (since the user already possesses a copy of the music, it isn't being "publicly performed.")

The service is $4/month, and Double Twist is offering a free 7-day trial. There's a video demo here. Read more in Hypebot here.
