CitySounds.fm: the sound of the world
On any given day, people in cities all over the world are listening and making all kinds of music. CitySounds pulls in this music from some of the world's most populous capitals like Tokyo, New York, Sao Paulo and London, categorizing the tracks based on where they were uploaded. The result is a constantly evolving (and surprising) snapshot of what's hot in what places. In Berlin, for instance, it might be some techno. Meanwhile in Buenos Aires, they're bouncing around to ska (?!). Down in Atlanta though, they're all about the newest hip hop remix.
While there are plenty of services that help you find new music, CitySounds is probably among the first to categorize based on location. And if you think about it, geography is the perfect way to organize for a generation of highly mobile, travel-hungry, music fans. Check out the site the next time you're eager to hear the latest and greatest sounds from around the globe.
