York, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom, 2009/03/03 - ShareMyPlaylists.com is a brand new service that enables users to share and upload their Spotify compilation playlists. The site has just gone live and coincides with the full UK public launch of streaming music resource Spotify.
UK based ShareMyPlaylists.com will enable Spotify users to share their playlists and discover new music by listening to the playlists of others.
Spotify playlists are compilations of tracks that users can lovingly put together just like the “mixtapes” of yesteryear. Anything goes, any style, any niche, any artist. The playlists could comprise music from a certain year that holds fond memories, maybe a collection of the latest R&B songs, or perhaps the user is a huge fan of Sinatra, Debussy, Madonna or Bloc Party and has compiled the definitive collection for that artist.
A major benefit of this free service is that the playlists are searchable via the keywords contained in their descriptions. To enhance the creativity factor, users are also invited to submit their own custom-made artwork for their playlist compilations.
Kieron Donoghue, Founder of ShareMyPlayLists.com commented, “ShareMyPlaylists.com is a new service mainly aimed at the UK audience and those that prefer a UK slant to their musical choices. We believe that this service will really encourage our visitors, both here and abroad, to share and discover great new music. I personally think of a playlist as a DJ set where you need to set the tone, the mood and take people on a “journey” from song to song, matching the theme and tempo. However, anything goes and there are no rules on ShareMyPlaylists.com.”
The site also contains a “Featured Playlists” section where the team highlight compilations that have been created with great thought and attention to detail. Users are encouraged to give a good description of their playlist so other visitors can discover it through the advanced keyword search facility.
The service already has plenty of playlists ready to be explored and as well as individuals, ShareMyPlaylists.com is challenging groups of friends, companies and organisations to start compiling together, and impress the world with their musical taste!
ShareMyPlaylists.com accepts playlists from any country, is totally free and uses Spotify, the streaming music service, which enables users to access millions of free and legal music tracks.
ShareMyPlaylists.com has been launched with the approval of Spotify.
Spotify is a new way to enjoy music. Simply download and install, before you know it you’ll be singing along to the genre, artist or song of your choice. There are no restrictions in terms of what you can listen to or when. Spotify is instant, fun and simple.
We respect creativity and believe in fairly compensating artists for their work. We’ve cleared the rights to use the music you’ll listen to in Spotify.
ShareMyPlaylists.com was created by founder Kieron Donoghue, a huge music fan who wished to create a playlist sharing service for Spotify’s UK users. Kieron is also owner and director of UK Offer Media Limited.
