Klinke auf Cinch - Highs and Hills
https://beta.resonate.is/tracks/800
This is my favorite album on Resonate Iโ€™ve found so far. No idea how to classify its genre, and thatโ€™s really fun to me. It moves around though a variety of different moods and styles โ€“ by the end of the album it nearly sounds like a different band than the one you started with! I find myself coming back to it again and again, and Iโ€™m more into it each time. Great stuff.

Very surprised with the album Hors Normes from Hervรจ Monier. It is a rich and diverse musical work containing instrumentation and rhythms from various South American regions, but also from other parts of the world, and even a track (Si Tienes Sed) that could perfectly be part of a western movie soundtrack. Listening to it was very fun!

VIDEOS!!!

Thereโ€™s a section in our press kit for videos and their descriptions. We need to check that we have the right promotional metadata / hashtags / keywords and other trickery set to get these noticed on the big platforms so that we get listeners and new members coming our way.

We have a YouTube channelโ€ฆ

Thanks to Rich:

Thanks to Terry:

Feel free to create more videos everyone!

(TIP: when posting a link to video/audio/websites on here, put them on a separate line on their own, with no other text, and they will appear in a nice box with a preview !)

this song rules

:wave: Hey all, my name is Meg and I am from the UK. I found Resonate through reading a few articles about ethical music consumption and decided to give it a try, it has only been a few days, but I am already really enjoying it!

My background is in graphic and web design and I am currently a masters student studying entrepreneurship for creative practice, specialising in social enterprise.

I really look forward to evolving into this community, sharing ideas and making connections. :smile:

Iโ€™ve been following Resonateโ€™s journey for a long time now, but never knew quite how to join the communal effort to include myself in this battle. Iโ€™m very glad this space exists to do just that now. my personnal project is called โ€œMOWUKISโ€, itโ€™s a solo endeavor with a few collabs here and there but mostly I record, write and produce from start to finish. I hope Iโ€™ll be able to bring some things to this community and Iโ€™ll start by reading as much as I can. Iโ€™m not much of a coder so my input will probably be much more politically inclined and from a user experience point of view (since I try to be a user of Resonate).

Anyway, thanks to you all !

Ital Tek - Glokk

Hello, friends. Iโ€™ve been using resonate since about January. I really like it both as a service and just conceptually. Its one of many changes Iโ€™ve made in my digital life since seeing The Great Hack on Netflix about a year ago (ironically kind of the video parallel to Spotify).

Iโ€™m laying down a little log on the fire here to get more active in the community.

Hope everybody is well.
Dan.

Dan! Thanks for checking in! Please be sure to check out the Community Credentials project weโ€™ve started building with grant awards from EU-based Self-Sovereign-Identity funds. With decentralized architectures we can build digital communities on platforms that canโ€™t be leveraged against users. We think it is fundamental to expressing co-operative values in digital spaces and the best path to building supportive networks around artists based on trust.

Anyway, welcome. Please keep posting. Speak up where you see the community could be doing better.

MOWUKIS @LLK - Asking For Some More
https://beta.resonate.is/tracks/3885
Been listening to this song on repeat for days. I love the lush percussion and vast textures throughout, which gives the song an entrancing bubbliness amidst the dense and tangled atmosphere. The song swells and slows during its first half, as if it is catching its breath โ€“ struggling to push forward. After a final reflection, the disparate elements unite with determination and you are drawn in deep with them. Hypnotizing.
