Here’s a blast from the past: former P2P service Audiogalaxy, which was shut down in 2002 under pressure from rightsholders. Now it’s back, but with a very different offering: a scan-and-match cloud music service that matches people’s local music collections, then serves them and others back in personalised radio-style ‘Mixes’. “Our service offers music fans a tunable music experience — play your own tracks anywhere without uploading, copying, or syncing, or lean back and start discovering music you don’t own via Mixes,” says founder Michael Merhej. The new Audiogalaxy may still be controversial for labels though: Digital Music News notes that it has licences with SoundExchange, ASCAP, BMI, and SESAC, but no direct deals with labels.
