NEW YORK (PRWEB) November 12, 2007
"Until now, there just wasn't a free and easy way to get the music you want online," said Jango CEO Dan Kaufman. "Jango is as easy as a Google search. In literally seconds, you can create a totally customized radio station that plays exactly what you want to hear."
On Jango, users create personal stations, then share those stations with friends and others who like the music that they like. The concept is clearly catching on: after 4 months in private beta testing, over 300,000 listeners have visited Jango.com to create over 600,000 stations. Over 70,000 members have already joined the Jango social community. Here's why:
SIMPLICITY: Just type in the name of an artist, and your first station starts playing. Customize it further by rating songs and adding more artists - with a single click. There's no need for downloads, searches, or playlists.
VARIETY: Get all the songs you know you want, plus find the new ones that go beyond your iTunes - from the artists you love to bands you may be hearing for the very first time. Tune in to any song playing on any of the site's 600,000 user-created stations.
CONTROL: Select the artists and songs you want to play. Stick closely to the artists you've chosen, or explore a wider variety of similar music. Go to any artist page to see all the songs by that artist playing on other stations - and tune in if you like.
COMMUNITY: See who's listening to the same music as you, who's tuning in to your stations, and what your friends are playing - right from your player. When you tune in to someone else, they'll see you in their player. Send a "thank you" if you like their station and want to make a new friend.
"Jango is more social than other music sites because people tune in to each others' stations all the time," added Kaufman. "It's a great way to discover new music - and just like in the offline world, music is more fun with friends."
Following the public release of its main service, Jango will introduce a mini-player that streams music while browsing other sites, as well as the "Jango Jukebox," an embeddable widget for blogs, MySpace, Facebook and other websites.
