As you may have noticed, we’re organising a gig soon and you’re all invited.
You see, Psonar was set up by people who love music; Rich, our Chief Technology Officer and co-founder, has been to see Orbital so many times this year it’s become a running joke and our Chief Executive Officer’s love of progressive house is legendary.
Even our lawyer loves European dance music and visits Berlin regularly. The rest of us aren’t as cool, but we try.
So as well as offering a really useful, cutting-edge service for music lovers, we also want Psonar to be a channel through which you can enjoy finding, and listening to, interesting new music that we like and we think you’ll like too.
Soon, we’ll be launching a new Discover area on psonar.com which will allow you to anonymously listen to clips of anyone’s tracks in the Psonar Cloud (where all the music is stored) and buy the music you like. You’ll also be able to hear and buy tracks from an eclectic mix of the UK’s best new and unsigned bands and check out interviews, tour dates, features and charts – all regularly updated.
In the meantime, with our regular new Psonar Presents night we are giving you the chance to check out some of our favourite new music live and, in Cambridge on Thursday 10th December, three of the region’s best up-and-coming bands will be gracing us with their presence: The Perfect Crime, Paris Like This and The Whisky Jax.
We picked a really nice venue to host the event – Hidden Rooms in Cambridge city centre – and we also have two DJs (TheSmithKid and Nick B) and an after-party at Niche, if you fancy partying with us until 4am.
It’s just £3 to get in before 10pm (doors open at 7.30pm) – that’s a pound a band, which we think is a pretty good deal plus you get into the after-party for free. Think of it as a small (but early) Christmas present from Psonar.
We’ll be posting more about Psonar Presents in the next few weeks, including some MP3s for you to check out and interviews with the bands, but we just wanted to tell you about this as we’re really excited and we hope you’ll be able to come and join us, the Psonar team, for a night of drinks, potentially-bad dancing and, most importantly, some great new music.
