Music Mine was originally an iPad only music discovery application built on the EchoNest API and sponsored by Mercedes Benz. It was a concept originally built to challenge algorithmic music recommendations, by focusing on DJ curation. Full length songs could be favorited and played back, based on the users preferences using audio found on blogs throughout the internet (EchoNest). The app soon grew to support iPhone as well.

“We have always imagined Music Mine would be launched on the iPhone, especially given its success on iPad and Spotify. Our goal is to make KCRW’s brand of music discovery as portable and accessible as possible, with a human touch,” says KCRW Director of Web & Mobile Development Nathan Lubeck. “It’s like having your personal KCRW DJ in your pocket.”
