Do you find yourself bombarded by music you just don’t care about? Everyone wants recommendations of cool stuff, but often the algorithms can’t seem to get it right.
Now imagine you’re an artist. Why would you want your music going out to people who aren’t interested in the kind of stuff you create?
A new digital promotion company called Upbeat wants to solve these problems. It bills itself as a “taste-in-music social network” that learns an individual’s personal taste in music and only recommends the most appropriate material.
