I discovered Resonate today, immediately became a member and have been discovering lovely new music all evening.
I quit Spotify a few years ago when I realized that most artists get pennies while a few really big names get enormous payouts.
Seeing an artist and user owned streaming service, completely open sourced under GPL 3.0 and with a thriving community where everything is developed in the open – it really made my day.
Yes, their catalogue is still tiny compared to every other streaming service, but the music I have listened to today is of really good quality. I will still listen to and buy music from other services like Bandcamp, but I became a member of Resonate also because I really want such a service to exist and thrive!
What do you think?
