Sweden is at it again, spawning a streaming music service with disruptive ambitions. This time it’s Revibe, with a focus firmly on dance music. “We strongly believe that this particular genre deserves a streaming service of its own instead of being left in the shade of all other mainstream music available on other music streaming services,” its co-founder Johan Wallberg tells Wired. It’s about to launch commercially in Scandinavia, following a beta test of 20,000 users. Revibe will be available as a website and a mobile app, with users able to use simple mixing tools to create mixes from its collection – although as Wired notes, it’s not quite up to the level of rival US service Pulselocker on that front yet. The catalogue appears in need of some expansion though: “Showing our age, perhaps, we were disappointed that searches for Daft Punk, Mylo, Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Stardust and LCD Soundsystem yielded nothing but karaoke versions,” notes Wired.
