TastemakerX Music - Follow all of your favorite artists’ social activity in one place
By TastemakerX, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
TastemakerX Music allows you, the music fan, to create a Collection of your favorite Artists. You can create the Collection with one click by using your Facebook liked Artists if you want. That Collection then powers a unified social feed for those Artists pulling in updates from Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, SoundCloud, Songkick tour dates, news, reviews, and new releases. You can also listen to a dynamic Spotify or Rdio playlist of any Collection or Artist while you catch up.
We've always believed that people turn people onto music, and TastemakerX Music aims to make that easier than ever by connecting you to the Top Fans of your favorite Artists to see and hear what they're all about.
Download the free app and stop missing out on what your favorite Artists are up to right now.
Curate your Collection of up to 12 of your favorite Artists, and drag and drop to rank them if you want to. Then kick back and listen to a dynamic playlist based on those Artists. Or, discover music by exploring other people’s Collections.
Stay on top of your favorite Artists’ social activity with a personalized real-time feed baked fresh just for you based on your Collection Artists including: Instagram photos, Songkick for tour updates, watch YouTube videos, listen to new track releases on SoundCloud, Tweets, New Releases, news and reviews. Your feed also includes activity from the Fans you follow so that you don't miss the new Artists they're getting excited about.
Everything you wanted to know or hear about an Artist in one place. Tour Dates? Check. Bio? Check. Top Fans? Check. All of their Social Media goodness? Yes indeed.
Every Artist has their own version of the unified feed except it’s only for their own activity. Pretty cool, eh?
Search for your favorite Artists or check out the Trending and Popular Charts of Artists and Fans that we’re creating just for you.
Stream dynamic playlists of any Collection, Artist or Chart using our player with integrated Spotify Premium or Rdio Unlimited options.
All Artists have Top Fans, which we’ve sorted out for you. Discover music by scanning the Top Fans of your favorite artists and then explore and follow their Collections.

Interesting idea, poor execution.
It's an interesting yet not really a novel concept. It suffers from poor execution.
You can only choose 12 bands to add to your collection. I know hundreds of bands that I like. Only being able to select 12 is way too few and really limits the app's usability... thus
It recommends artists that you already know about. Every single recommended artist I know, very well. "You listen to <artist> so we thought you should check out <artist>." I gave up on scrolling down for more. What's the point?
The app feels like a ghost town. It's not engaging at all. I don't get the hype. Rdio acquired this?
If the developers want to discuss this more, you can find me at @indiesongaday.
