Pete Tong

Want Pete Tong to go through your record collection and draw attention to the obvious omissions? No, me neither. But if you did, you’d be in luck, because the Radio 1 DJ has launched a new app which will scan your iTunes collection, cross reference it with every track Tong has ever played in a club, and then recommend some other tunes, old or new, that you might want to check out. It does sound kinda fun, if your musical tastes cross over with those of the DJ.

Says Tong: “I wanted a way to capture the whole spectrum of electronic music’s rich history, and distil it into an expert recommendation service to guide people with their music choices – and this is the first time I’ve come across an app that can do just that. It allows me to take a look through your record collection and pull out the tracks that I would play, then I find a few tracks you might be missing and build you a playlist. If you choose to buy the tracks I recommend, it’s as if I’ve put a compilation album together just for you. The app has a built in player so you can listen to all the playlists immediately”.
