BitCandy is the Curated Music Filter and Internet Radio for Indie, Pop and Electro Music. Discover Faster at BitCandy.
BitCandy is a dedicated Music Filter, serving up the very best new music of the Blogosphere. As a Music Filter, BitCandy’s team (which are indeed humans and not computers) listens to and filters thousands of blog posts, hundreds of new album releases, dozens of indie music publications, along with the word on the street each month to bring you a handpicked, trusted stream of the best content and songs, unknown artists and what’s buzzing on the web.
BitCandy, however, is just not another Internet Radio station or Music Blog. BitCandy has created an entirely new system called Curator, where visitors to BitCandy can earn Curator badges and status for their new music discoveries. Achieving Curator status at BitCandy also unlocks blogging credentials, meaning Curators can submit and get paid for blog posts and reviews they create for BitCandy. It’s BitCandy’s view that Music Blogs are fast becoming the new Record Labels. Thus, Curators at BitCandy can make 20% of whatever BitCandy receives for a specific signing. BitCandy's 1st signing is a 16 piece alternative folk project, Mother Falcon, ala an early Arcade Fire.
BitCandy additionally offers irreverent Music Reviews, a Featured Music section, a Posers section (for the “most hyped music fails”) and a cutting edge, weekly posting of the Best Indie Songs, Best Electro Bangers and Best Pop, HipHop Remixes & Mashups. It’s BitCandy’s belief that we don’t need another “5 Million Songs in Our Pocket.” No, what we need today is a trusted Music Filter to help discover and serve up just the 100 most amazing new songs on a continual fresh basis, either signed or unsigned…and to discover and explore great music that will enrich our lives (and get us through Mondays).
Also, tune into BitCandy’s own branded Music Charts (coming in September) where we’ve created our own Charts for indie, Pop and Electro. We feel that the current charts ala the Billboard Hot 100 or UK’s Music Week…just aren’t the music charts that represent what “we” (that’s you and me) listen to and are fans of. The fun part is, you’ll get a say in all of this (you’ll see).
Come join us at BitCandy, pull up a seat and drop by, we’d love for you to say Hi (yes that rhymed). One more thing, we’ll never play Nickleback.
