In this day and age when new artists abound, how does one ever stand a chance of getting their music discovered and heard? Enter BoostPlay for iOS, the newest app available on iTunes for SoundCloud devotees.
Created by Todd Dunham of Dragon Fruit Development, BoostPlay is pioneering the way to new music discovery while promoting one’s own music through SoundCloud. Prompted by the need for new artists to get their music out to a larger audience of “real people” as opposed to computer generated “bots”, Dunham developed his latest start up, BoostPlay, as a means to help indie artists promote their music, all the while helping support fellow artists by making it quick and easy to discover new tracks.
Dunham explains, “I have friends that DJ and make music that would always ask me how they can promote their tracks, get feedback and build their audience. I did a lot of research and found that many services online charge artists a lot of money and deliver fake plays, from fake “bot” SoundCloud accounts. Developing BoostPlay, I wanted to create more of a community user-base and promotion tool.”
Used in conjunction with an account on the popular streaming SoundCloud platform, BoostPlay users can promote songs, explore new music, listen to tracks, like it, follow the artist and share feedback, all directly from the app, which then translates straight to their SoundCloud account.
Dunham goes on to say, “I added a coins system to encourage people to explore music they enjoy.” Coins are easily awarded when you listen to or like a track, follow an artist or through other simple measures such as following BoostPlay on Twitter or recommending the app to other users. With over 30 genres of new music waiting to be discovered, the coins system makes the discovery process fun, offering users a game-like experience.
A trailblazer in the making, for music advocates, BoostPlay makes it as easy as possible to satisfy their music fix. Whether you’re a music lover or a new artist looking for exposure, there couldn’t be a simpler, more efficient interface for SoundCloud users everywhere. And to make it even sweeter, the BoostPlay app is now available for free download on iTunes.
