Hello Everyone and welcome to Digital Music Trends - Episode 100!
Thanks for sticking with the show for so long through ups and downs (and fairly long breaks) if you're a long-time listeners and welcome if you're new to it!
This week an interview with Jason Herskowitz (@jherskowitz), one of the programmers leading the Tomahawk (@Tomahawk) project.
Tomahawk is an open source music player that finally enables cross-platform music consumption and has a very strong social and discovery backbone. Ever wanted to search for music and see results spanning from Soundcloud to last.fm to your Spotify subscription and finally your own music? This is what Tomahawk enables you to do.
There are many cool features and rather than listing them all here I encourage you to listen to the episode and find out!
