It’s tough to find music that’s not algorithmically recommended, but suggested by real music lovers: DJs, producers, or just fans like you. Soundsgood is a new service that wants to be just that, with playlists that are platform agnostic, so you can listen to them on YouTube, Soundcloud, Spotify, whatever you like.
Music services are a dime a dozen lately, but Soundsgood tries to keep the human element in play, instead of just offering up your music recommendations to a computer that may or may not know what you like, or help you find something new to listen to. Right now the service is still new, but its playlists are built by human curators, with seven (or more) new playlists packed with music introduced every week.
Those playlists often have themes, like one that’s all afro-electronic and another that’s all deep-house and downtempo, along with others that are mostly rock and pop-rock, and others that are hip-hop and R&B. Those human curators are musicians, DJs, and fans in their own right, and they get to see what their listeners like and dislike, so they can fine tune their playlists and recommendations to match.
The front page, whether you sign up for an account or not, is a wonderland of new songs to try out. You can explore different curators to see if your listening tastes line up with theirs (and then follow them to get their playlists as they’re launched), or just listen to whatever you want, whether it’s the latest playlists or trending songs in specific genres. Just keep scrolling down to get more great suggestions. If you like, you can even become a curator and build your own playlists for others to listen to.
Soundsgood is also platform agnostic, so you can connect whatever music service you prefer to use. If you’re a Spotify fan, you can connect your Spotify account to get the songs in those playlists in that app. YouTube or Soundcloud listeners have a leg up (since that’s where a lot of the tracks are sourced), but the service also supports Deezer, Xbox Music, Beats Music and a few others.
