Play DJ — Or Just Listen To A Stranger’s Rad Music All Day — On Turntable.fm

Hot new website alert! Turntable.fm is a new website — accessible to anyone with a Facebook account — where users get to play DJ for thousands of online listeners. So, how does it work? When you log in to the site, you have a choice of either entering an existing “room” or creating a “room” yourself. Each room can have a max of five DJs playing music that fits with the room’s theme at one time, but even if you’re not DJing, you can sit and listen. If you do want to DJ, you upload songs into the queue and when it’s your turn, your top song will play. Users can then vote if the song choice is Awesome or Lame — for each “Awesome” vote, the DJ gets a point which can then be put towards other site privileges, like fancy avatars. I haven’t had the balls to play DJ yet — users can chat online while the songs play and sometimes their assessment of a DJ’s picks can be harsh — but I have been hanging out in various “rooms” all weekend, listening to a mix of songs that I either haven’t heard in awhile or wasn’t privy to before. So far, my fave rooms have been “Indie While You Work” and “Just Dope Tracks” which plays a variety of hip-hop tunes from all eras. If you love music and are looking to mix up audio routine, check it out! [Turntable.fm] Keep reading »
