Friends of the electro genre will love Evermix, a new online community for dj sets. Evermix offers a live recording service to dj’s and introduces the recorded sets at its homepage. This is accompannied by social networking features enabling all participants to share or to stay in contact.
To listen to the club music one may just visit the homepage, where mixes are introduced within the categories Latest, Featured and Popular.
Creating live recordings requires a subscription. The recording happens via an app (currently only available for iOS, an Android version will follow). Furthermore an analog / digital converter is needed, which connects the mixer with the app installed on an device. Evermix is providing an own converter called MixBox (During the visit of the website an announcement told that the device is sold out, but will be available again soon.). After recording with the app, the sets may become uploaded to the service. Further information about the recording and the service is available via About at Evermix.

To podcasting the latest article of the last year has been dedicated and the first article of 2015 is starting with podcasting.
As formerly reported there came up a couple of new podcasting services. And how it happens I visited a networking event about the topic and become aware of two further interesting new podcasting tools, which are introduced below.
At first there is podlove, a most comfortable podcast plugin for the blogger software WordPress. One of its numerous features is a function to devide text posts and podcasts. The plugin generates two different surfaces to create common posts and podcast episodes and generates as well a different feed to let fetch just the podcasts. SEO functions are integrated as well, which enables search engines to index the audio or video content.
Spreaker is the second service. It is a media hosting service. Beside podcast hosting it includes tools to distibute podcasts and analytics features to measure the success. Furthermore the services enables recording both via the web and on mobile devices. And what might be described as most exciting is a live casting feature, which may show where the future development of podcasting is going to.

Just lately the live recording service set.fm came out of beta and is now providing its services to download live recordings and the app to record events to the public. Musicians are able to download the app, to record their events and to sell the recordings at the set.fm homepage.
The service is located in Austin, Texas, and up to now only recordings made in Austin are available at the homepage, which is because of the app being available just since the beginning of September. But set.fm has ambitions. The service got money by investors and aims to make revenues of 100 million in five years, which probably needs a global expansion. An argument to reach this target is a general trend toward live events in the music industry and a test of the app showed that about 15% of visitors of events have bought the live recording. To get further information visit the homepage of set.fm.
