We’ve got a confusing few months ahead: whenever we’re writing about Turntable, we’ll need to explain which of the TWO revived versions of the famous social music service we’re talking about.

Last month we wrote about the one being launched by original Turntable founder Billy Chasen raising $7.5m in funding. Today’s news concerns the other one: launched by another veteran of the original startup, Joseph Perla. His version has raised $2m in funding, and yesterday launched as an Android and iOS app, as well as a website.

The basic gist remains the same: users as avatars gathering in rooms to listen to music – which in this case is coming via integrations with Spotify, Apple Music and SoundCloud, with YouTube to follow. “We are also now engaging with the music industry to bring music directly to fans with no required third-party logins later this year,” said Perla.
