Like the formerly introduced set.fm offering downloads of live recordings the music sharing site hearo.fm has just been launched lately. It is an interesting music social network. Having launched lately means there not a lot of members up to now, exactly 2702 at this time mentioned within a worldmap at the site. This worldmap already is an interesting feature, which enables to find people speaking the same language or people nearby. Additionally members are classified by their intention and currently there are more musicians, band and other music professionals registered than fans. This is fine as hearo is describing itself as a site to collaborate as well.
To listen to music and share it hearo has some comfortable features. One just point on the cover of a song and it will be played by the website player and additional tracks will be easily added to a playlist to be listened later. To share music and to network the site got buttons to favor tracks and artists and buttons to easily write reviews. Last but not least hearo describes itself as a marketplace to directly buy and sell music or to offer the music free. To get further information view the video below and visit hearo.fm.
TRAEXS Directory Links: Music Sharing – Music Download – Music Business
Who reads the TRAEXS blog regularly knows about the many music publishing and sharing sites and who do publish dj sets or other kind of mixes probably looked for an option to mark particular tracks within a set, something usually not being possible.
This is different at the cloud music hosting service Mixcloud, where I just did some research for another service and by this just tried the upload feature for the first time for the associated site traex.de. And this feature is great at Mixcloud and it solves exactly the problem of marking particular tracks within a mix. Uploading happens by a common interface accompanied by facilities to add information as usual. After this common page a further particular page follows enabling to set time stamps marking the beginning and ending of particular tracks. This leads to displaying the right information at the right point while playing a file and even to navigation within a file like the embedded and comfortable Mixcloud player shows below. The service by the way is free and for more visit Mixcloud.

TheFuture.fm is a rather new online radio playing dj mixes and sets by the top dj’s of the world. Lately the service announced having reached 1 million played sets, which gave reason for support and for expansion, the article below tells. Currently about 8000 dj’s are represented with their sets and mixes.
To listen to music the service provides comfortable options by being searchable for genres as well as for artists. Of course there are sharing facilities and both embedded players and playlist features are provided (now the music stops while listening and for more the registration is required, which may happen by Facebook).
