We’ve seen a fair few attempts to apply Tinder’s left and right-swiping mechanic to music discovery, but usually that’s about liking or rejecting individual songs. MuzicSwipe is a startup trying an interesting iteration on that by matching fans to artists, app-dating style.

It is still about listening to 15-second clips of music and swiping to the right to like them, or to the left to pass on. The app’s twist is that listeners don’t see who any artist is until they’ve swiped right on three of their clips – at which point a match is made.

On the artist side, this is about directly uploading those clips – up to 10 per artist – while maintaining a profile that listeners will see once they have liked three tunes. Fetty Wap is one of the more high-profile artists to be on MuzicSwipe already.

The app has been released for iPhone in a beta version.
