Makradar Technologies / / December 19, 2019
We continue to talk about the curators, which Apple chose to recommendations Apple Music. The first part can be found hereIn the second it will be about Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Shazam, who wormed his way here by accident, and others.
Styles: rock, rap, alternative.
The NME, or New Musical Express - is an English music magazine, which is part of a conglomerate Time Warner, which means that often writes about music, which produces the same name record company. I advise you to listen to the few playlists NME. I do not know what criteria they chose singers, but it turned out great.
Styles: indie, electronic music, pop, jazz, rock.
Pitchfork - one of the most famous music magazine in the world. Some playlists, which they publish, can cause issues, but doubt the quality and rigor of their selection is not necessary. Playlists from Pitchfork to the Apple Music is really a lot and for every taste.
As Complex, about which I wrote in the first part, PopCrush focused on pop culture and writes about artists who are either at the hearing today, or soon will be.
Styles: electro music.
Another magazine and curator specializing in electronic music. If you did not have playlists in the style of Deep House, Ambient Melt Down and Rave Run, then RA will throw a couple more.
Rolling Stone - Apple is the world's music critics. The journal has long since turned into a huge machine that writes everything and makes it cool. In playlists such an abundance of styles that I did not think long and wrote the truth - there is everything. Perhaps the electronic music compilations Rolling Stone the least, but it's for the better, and it is so much.
Styles: indie, rock, alternative.
The address Q there are many complaints about the fact that the magazine has lost his grip, and lately more concentrated on popular artists - who exactly shot. Looking playlists, I realized that I do not agree difficult. Florence and the Machine, Muse, Blur - great performers, but there was something new and different, you will not find here.
Styles: pop, hip-hop, dance music.
Long thought how Shazam was in the company of the best music magazines of the world. Worth to recall the base, which is at the service, and the issues have disappeared. Shazam focuses on popular music and the trend using the information from the users who are looking for tracks.
Styles: Alternative, pop, rock.
VICE popular since the 90s, but we have it became better known only recently. The magazine is available for free and earns only on advertising. Subjectivism and sharp criticism VICE migrated to Apple Music. Here you can find the names of playlists Songs We Do not Completely Hate or Guide to Shutting Down a Party.
Styles: pop, dance music.
As GQ, Vogue hit the curators of the list due to its popularity and the big names. Music, which is published in the Apple Music, more suitable for a female audience, which is not surprising, because Vogue - a magazine about women's fashion.
Styles: hip-hop, alternative, electronic music.
As is the case with Vogue, see curators Journal of strange technologies. Playlists from Wired little, and almost all of the music in them can be attributed to hip-hop or alternative.
Do not lie if I say that in that time Apple was able to please everyone. Curators tab you will find any style you like. A small slope in electronic music does not bother - it is at the peak of popularity, and it would be strange if it was less than other styles.
I advise to look for new music, not only in the recommendations, but also curators. Perhaps it will not be so personalized, but here you will not find bad tracks. Unless, of course, will not listen to GQ.
