"DarwinBeats is kicking mainstream music's ass with its indie-only music discovery app."

Now with over 9,000 indie artists!


You are here to change the world.

You see, you won't just be discovering tons of new amazing artists, you'll also be playing an important part in their success.

You are a music curator, and our algorithm lives by your actions. Every upvote, every downvote, and every one of your interactions is important.

And all you need to do is:
- Listen if you enjoy
- Skip if you don't enjoy
- Upvote if you love
- Downvote if it sucks

But also:
- Favorite (star button) to save the song
- Follow the artist to be updated when they have new content
- Share or comment to engage socially

The more upvotes a song receives, the more it gets played and promoted by our algorithm. The more downvotes it receives, the less it gets played. Over time, what happens is the Natural Selection of Music.

Customer Reviews

Can’t even sign up

aisling said stop

It says my email is associated with an account every time I try to sign up, and then when I click “forgot password” it says my email is not associated with an account. I’ve tried two different emails and it won’t even let me log in with Facebook, every time I try it just goes back to the sign up page. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app and tried restarting my phone but honestly if this app is gonna give me this much trouble trying to sign up, I can’t imagine how horrible the interface is just using the app regularly.

An evolution in discovering artist


This app is a fantastic way to discover new and upcoming artists. The app is beautifully designed. Recommended – I would totally check it out

Evolution in Music Via App


This is a cutting edge app. I am an audiophile and am always looking for new music. I hear such much music that it's sometimes difficult to find an unknown artist just seeking their work to be heard. The app is very fluid and streamline for being a newbie and the concept is brilliant. I picked a ton of genres and it almost mashed them and provided me new artist across the spectrum. It was a random song each time. It's very innovated and I can't wait to use it further. It's not a replacement for other music subscriptions however I see it as an enhancement to your personal growing music library of knowledge.
