Launching our Chill Beats YouTube 24/7 Radio
Chillhop and lofi music have been the core of our website for the past few years and many of us are deeply involved with the scene. Hence, launching the official radio made so much sense and it helps us bridge together the whole Stereofox user journey - from our website to all the streaming services we're using - YouTube, Spotify and Apple Music.
We actually started our YouTube journey with a trial radio last year and while it wasn't one of those radios who have 100s of listeners, we had a fair share of supporting messages from people who enjoyed the selection.
I shut down the radio a few months ago determined to find a visual that stands out and represents our brand. I actively looked out of the illustration world and I am glad we managed to find something we're all happy with.
In addition I took a few weeks to send out ~500 personalized messages to artists and labels to ask for permission. I feel this is the professional and respective way and it makes me really happy to have met nothing, but supportive response.
I want to use this post to thank the 100s of artists whose beats are on the radio and the labels who do outstanding job curating and releasing great music. A massive shoutout to Chillhop Music, Chilled Cow, College Music, Aviary Bridge Records, The Jazzhop Cafe, Dust Collectors, Sundae Sauuce, Pueblo Vista, freshgoodies, Chill Beats Records, Aruarian Records, urbnundrgrnds and Brunch Collect for the work they do and the fact that they gave us permission to use their releases. I hope I didn't miss anyone.
We hope you enjoy this radio. It's all created, designed and curated with love from us to you. Starts tonight (10th of May) at 9PM Berlin time.
