By bringing out the innovative concept of song sharing which the cubic.fm team called it as "cube a song", the app creates algortihmically verified and activity based crowd-sourced radio stations from sharings of all listeners. Cubic.fm has been available in Deezer's App Studio since August 2013 and now accessible for all Spotify users.
The app predicts what you are up to by gathering data on your location, time and weather, offers activities and fitting music genres for that specific moment. Once you select an activity-genre pair, cubic.fm starts the genre based radio station for your moment, right after two clicks!
With cubic.fm's unique radio crowd-sourcing approach, anyone can cube (share) a song with his personal message. The smart algorithm "cubengine", ensures it is played at the right moment to other like-minded people from all over the world. As the cubed songs go on air, listeners can enjoy each other’s discoveries, cheer other’s songs and check out their stats.
While engaged in the music, listenters not only enjoy the tunes but can also share their moments via Instagram to be seen on the Now Playing tab for the related activity. Cubic.fm team is excited to present all Spotify users the new 3D music experience!
For a worldwide presence and to scale globally, the team develops partnerships with two global streaming music services Deezer & Spotify.
Cubic.fm was one of twelve startups of Turk Telekom's (Turkish Telecommunication Services) Incubation and Accelaration Program PILOTT back in December and still proceeds on the program as a finalist.
The team has been also honored as a finalist for the annual music industry convention Midem's global music startup competition Midemlab. Each startup will be pitching at the Cannes conference in France between 1-4 February 2014, with one winner to be chosen for every category.
