The latest issue of The Next Web iPad Magazine (it was released two days ago; if you’ve got an iPad – subscribe today!) sees the launch of a partnership with music startup 22tracks that will see us share five of the hottest tracks selected by DJs in its community each month.
22tracks focuses on expert music curation by well-known DJs. It’s a hit service in the Netherlands, is also active in Belgium, and has recently expanded to feature the UK too. 22 DJs from Amsterdam, Brussels and London, each specializing in a different genre – from afrobeat to grime and house to jazz – share their 22 favorite tracks for your listening pleasure.
The startup won both the Best Business To Consumer and Public Vote awards at The Next Web Conference 2010 Startup Rally, prompting us to take an in-depth look at its product and business model back then.
With our new partnership, each month five artists get selected, with a beautifully presented page, including a photo, a sprinkling of information for flavor, and of course the track itself. This month’s selection spans house, minimalist electronic music, soul and pop.
Being a music-loving bunch, we’re going to share the five tracks from our iPad Magazine here, too. Each track has been handpicked by the expert community of DJs involved in 22tracks.
Here’s this month’s selection:
1: Jessie Ware – Running (Disclosure Remix)
2: Burial & Four Tet – Nova
3: Robert Glasper Experiment – Afro Blue feat. Erykah Badu
4: Miike Snow – Paddling Out
5: Marvin Belton – Find A Way
The Next Web Magazine for iPad features articles you’ll love, beautifully presented, every month.
