Another music discovery platform has hit the scene… Seevl.
Seevl pulls music from YouTube and artist data from sites like Wikipedia to offer unlimited streaming and artist profiles. It offers music recommendations and genre and label search functionality.
Co-founder and CEO Alexandre Passant says:
“While existing platforms have done lots of effort to provide huge music catalogues, discovery has been impersonal and opaque for too long, and we want to fix this.”
However, competing with sites like Hype Machine and Shuffler.fm is not an easy task. Passant also says they want to “showcase what a Web of Data can ultimately offer to consumers and businesses”, but companies like The Echo Nest are already doing this.
Seevl is currently working on adding automatic playlists and expanding to other devices. They are currently available on the web and as an app on Deezer. They have raised about $68,000 so far.
