Discovering the right music to suit an event’s mood or vibe can be daunting. This is where music lovers rely on the same handful of options they have listened to a thousand times. While this saves the time-consuming task of browsing through hundreds of musical choices, it also overshadows the many aspiring talents who remain undiscovered, perhaps forever. This is the fertile ground where MuzicSwipe has emerged as a revolutionary platform that is changing the way fans discover music and artists gain exposure. Essentially, this tech innovation blends the passion of music with the power of technology to connect fans and artists in a new and unique way.

MuzicSwipe was conceived during a long conversation Eric Dalius and his family shared over a long dinner a few years ago. The discussion centered around a new concept that could connect aspiring musicians directly with their audiences. MuzicSwipe became a reality soon after and was launched over a two-year period via an amazing grassroots campaign that evoked the feel of good old fashioned 20th century music marketing.

Over time, MuzicSwipe has emerged as more than a mere music streaming service. The reason can be found in its wonderfully designed App, which blends the usability of social media with the key features of “swipe” technology. The swipe is the key here, as it allows users to align their music preferences to their mood with the goal of finding brilliant undiscovered talent. And the happy result of this tech mashup is a lot of exposure for emerging musical talent, and a safe space for them as well.

The “command center” for MuzicSwipe is its standout feature — “Clips”. Clips are 15-second previews posted by musical artists showcasing their talents and encouraging users to swipe right or left based upon their talent assessments. Users “Match” with their new favorite artists by swiping right on three distinct artist clips.

An in-app purchase is available for those users who seek an “instant match”. And artists can speed up their chances of being discovered via the “ArtistPro” in-app program, which offers zero-cost matches to their future fans.

Thanks to Eric Dalius and MuzicSwipe, many new artists have found the limelight. Notable among them are The Ochoa Boyz and Dana Vaughns. The Ochoa Boyz are a dynamic brotherhood that skillfully blends pop and hip-hop. The band is consistently on the Swipe 100 list. Dana Vaughns is a multi-talented singer, dancer, and actor who is gaining positive attention for his unique melding of R&B and pop. Vaughns is also a Swipe 100 regular.

MuzicSwipe has utilized technology and music to revolutionize how fans connect with their favorite artists. Apart from being an innovative launch pad for fresh talents in the music industry, MuzicSwipe brilliantly utilizes Swipe and Clips to offers immersive audience experiences. The app is restyling the art of music discovery, taking fans on a melodious joy ride while paving the way for artists to embrace international recognition.
