HOW DID IT COME ABOUT
After being a club DJ back in the 1990s playing vinyl, I recently got back into DJing and was amazed at the sheer volume of new music being released every day. It didn't seem possible to listen through it all never mind keep track of what I'd already listened to.
I tried for a while listening through playlists at the major dance music stores but I simply couldn't keep up. I found it especially tough as I'm not into one particular genre of music, sure, I probably lean heavily towards a certain sound but I can honestly say there's house, techno, trance, minimal and all kinds of music I like. It's all house music to me!
Asking around to see how other people did it the most common suggestion given was "just follow a few charts of the DJs you like and get to hear about the music that way".
“It’s important to have your own style and I couldn’t see how that was possible by simply following other DJs - you need to hear it all and make your own mind up”.
This led me to write an app that would grab all the new music from the major online download stores and put it into a single playlist for me to listen through at my leisure. I don't care where it's come from I just want to hear it.
So, Trackhunter was born and I've been using it ever since…
