General


What is Shuffler.fm?
Shuffler.fm is a music news & internet radio service powered by the web’s leading tastemaker music sites & blogs.


What does Shuffler.fm do for me?
There are over 20 million songs available to you at any time via services like Youtube, Soundcloud, Spotify, Deezer etc. And every year around 200.000 new releases are coming out.

Shuffler.fm helps you filter this music overload. We gather the musical expertise of thousands of tastemakers from across the web into user friendly apps for desktop and mobile. So that wherever you are you know what you should be listening to next.


How does Shuffler.fm work?
All music and articles you read and play are provided by different websites. Our servers scan these sites regularly for new posts containing audio or video from Youtube, Soundcloud, Vimeo, Bandcamp or MP3’s hosted on the sites. For more info read: How The Shuffler Robots Work

With this information we make playable channels per site, artist and genre (radio). Every channel gets played reverse chronologically, so it doesn’t shuffle the tracks in a channel. Shuffler.fm refers to way we mix websites into channels.


How does Shuffler.fm know the genre of a track?
We send a track’s metadata to Last.fm. We use the genre tags that the Last.fm userbase applies to a track. When there’s no genre tags available for a specific track (happens often), we use the genre tags given to the artist of the track.


Why does Shuffler.fm use sites and not machine algorhythms?
We believe sites are the online equivalent of the vinyl or cd cover. And all sites are run by people like magazine editors, artists, bloggers, curators, DJ’s etc. Experts their own niche whose opinions and recommendations often exceed the plausible or expected suggestions that machines can come up with.


Website


What is a popular track?
The popular chart is calculated on the amount of times a tracks is posted on multiple sites over the last 3 days, it gets updates every 12 hours.


What is a Featured Site?
A state we give to a site we think you should definitely check out.


What is a Trending Artist or Trending Site?
On our website you will see cards that are tagged as trending. This a dynamic, code generated, tag based on the amount of times a site or artist appears in that channel. It’s another way to highlight what’s going on at any given time in any channel.
