For example, where on earth does this fit?
Sure, you can shoehorn them into house or techno, but that doesn't really do it justice. And having a 'misc' genre like 'electronica' is cheating. Electronica is a word invented and used by music journalists as a substitute for a proper understanding of the culture. And don't even think about including IDM or you will lose all credibility ;)
Otherwise, great work!
Unfortunately, those podcasts don't appear to be linked from the original site anymore, but here are the track listings for all of the Club Autonomic layers http://clubautonomic.wordpress.com/
But, if you go to their official soundcloud account http://soundcloud.com/club-autonomic-com , you can see at the very bottom that there are the first two layers.
Hope that helps!
Which reminds me, I'm off to Nectarine.
Specifically, it's the `background-attachment: fixed` that's killing performance here.
EDIT: Not so much of a jab, rather just to let you know you've maybe lost a customer or two because its not worth the payoff for me to get an account to just look at your site (I don't know if its a site ill like enough to justify that effort!)
Also, you broke the back button.
The frontpage is rather mysterious, though, I agree.
I just don't want to connect sites together. Would much rather create a separate account at each website like the good old days. Puzzles me why new sites are cannibalizing their potential like this because I can't be alone in this thinking.
Two ux issues:
1. If I switch into another tab while listening to the music there is a notification sound every time someone says something new in the chat room. This sound is overlayed over the music which is somewhat annoying. The only way to turn the notification sound off and still listen to the music is by closing the chat room.
2. Once you close the chat room there is no obvious way to re-open it until you refresh the page and click on "More chats" in the lower left corner - a part of the screen I'm least likely to look at. Expected behavior is that the chat should just reappear where it was in the first place.
Grovulent - do you have DATA to back up your claim?
But I've never seen such a thin submission rise this fast before... ever... and I been around a while.
I wish my submissions would all rise as easily. I mean the app is reasonable. Nothing earth shattering. This many votes? Really?
I mean - fair enough if you had linked to a blog post highlighting some interesting tech you had used or something like that - but to a blank twitter sign up page... which I don't want to use... without even an overview of what the service does... that's lame. (even lamer to be vote rigging such a lame submission).
If I could downvote this - I would.
That would help the community more as a whole here.
Tweeting things to dozens of people does tend to let the cat out of the bag tho...
I got nothing against self-promotion mind you. I just don't think a blank sign up page is news... anyhoo - power to you. The music is v. nice.
Maybe lots of fans of electronic stay up late?
What makes Turntable.fm chat interesting is that everyone is listening to and talking about the same song.. you don't get that here. It seems like people are just grouped by genres, but everyone can be clicking on and playing different songs.
It would be cool to send them a capability-based URL, or unique. sending someone console.fm/5thXv would take them to a specific playlist I've made while we can chat about it on the site. Etc.
Good work though. I like the look and feel quite a bit.
Edit: Just discovered the associated playlist chat-room.. nevermind.
When I look at a music app, I now compare it to turntable.fm because they are setting a new standard. Sorry, but console.fm cannot compete in it's current configuration.
