    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know of any other music platforms other than spotify and grooveshark. Groove shark is great but i have noticed as it's a user based network, many people upload their own recordings of songs and then it is displayed in the grooveshark library which becomes annoying.

      We7 or Deezer. Although Deezer has a smaller catelogue than We7.

      I did use mflow for a while but they packed it in. I am on the mailing list for a beta version of something else created by the same people so hopefully when it's live it'll be just as good.

      Does we7 or deezer provide the actual original songs or is it one of those user social network one like grooveshark where people can upload their poorly recorded songs off the radio lol?

        Yeh, they're not like Grooveshark and provide the originals. Tbh though, I sub to Spotify as I believe just shy of a fiver a month is little to pay for access to masses of music!

        Rdio is the only one worth your time in honesty.Deezer has a very limited catalog and its interface is poor. I think Spotify is the best but Rdio may be more your thing.

        Just checked out rdio. And it seems pretty good as well but very similar to spotify. I would just like to find a free based music streaming site but i guess theres no such thing lol. Downloading is pretty long and just takes too much space, really
