By | Published on Wednesday 8 July 2015


Rdio has added a load of new curated stations to its online radio service across all tiers (ie freemium, medium and premium), giving users access to the brains of various labels and media. Though only when it comes to choosing songs to play. Other elements of said brains remain closed off to the public.

“Rdio is committed to making music discovery fun, easy and personal”, says Rdio CEO Anthony Bay. “In keeping with our objective of providing the world’s best internet radio experience, we are proud to partner with key influencers and the label community to programme their own branded stations. These stations not only help extend each labels’ brand presence but they also let our listeners anywhere in the world discover music from credible brands that they trust and respect”.

In the UK, the new stations available are curated by record labels XL, Fiction, DFA, Blue Note, Arts & Crafts, Burger Records, Dirty Hit, and Glassnote, plus Alt Sounds and DJ Kicks.
