Merchbar, Spotify & the Future of Merch

We started Merchbar because we believe in the universal power of music to connect people. In a world of opposing teams and opposite sides music has an unrivaled power to bring people from all over the world together.

Outside of the concert, merch is a unifying force too. Whether it’s a loud Def Leppard shirt, a baggy Wu Tang hoodie or an elegantly simple product from Ghostly International, these physical emblems of our shared connections can bring high fives on the street or a subtle nod from a fellow fan on the subway.

Its this passion that’s driven us to spent the last 2 years building the ultimate merchandise platform for artists and fans.

Features like personalized merch alerts, optimized mobile browsing and a mobile app that’s rated 4.5 stars and been featured by Apple over 30 times have allowed Merchbar to become the destination millions of fans turn to when they’re looking for merchandise from their favorite artists.

From the beginning we’ve also been focused on being a close partner to artists, and we’re honored to be an official merchandise partner for over 35,000 of the world’s artists from The Beatles merch, to Justin Bieber merch to Beacon records.

Today we’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with Spotify that will create a massive new channel for artists to distribute and for fans to discover merch; ultimately increasing revenue for artists and creating even better discovery and shopping experiences for fans.

As Spotify’s official merch partner, Merchbar will power merch listings across the Spotify platform, and over the coming months we will be working closely together to create new merch discovery experiences for fans and new features for artists and merch companies of all sizes.

We’re also thrilled to welcome 10 new artists and their merchandise to Merchbar – Eagles of Death Metal merch, Alanis Morissette merch, St. Vincent merch, Black Veil Brides merch, Joan Jett merch, The Shins merch, Cheap Trick merch, Asking Alexandria merch, Bush merch and Ingrid Michaelson merch all have new stores of authentic and official merchandise opening on Merchbar today.

This is a big step in our goal to create the ultimate platform to connect fans with merch from the artists they love, and we’re just getting started.

New Hacking Mix – DJ SNAKE’s Essential Mix

DJ Snake is everywhere. In the club with “Turn Down for What”. On the charts with “Lean On”. In the bedroom with “You Know You Like It”.

Today he’s all up on that Hacking Mix grind with a set from waaayyy back in the day two years ago from Radio One on the BBC.

DJ Snake goes all over the place in this mix, from soulful to sexy to banging to breakbeat.

Its a great grind mix, but proceed with caution: it may be a bit too intense for that late night zone and grind.

X-Men meet Flaming Lips in new Marvel Comic

In a mash-up made in nerd heaven, Billboard reports that one of today’s most forward looking bands, The Flaming Lips, will be featured on the pages of Marvel’s ‘X-Men 92’ comic.


From Billboard:

In the upcoming Issue #6 (August), Professor X’s band of misfits meets another when the Flaming Lips visit the X-Men universe. Today (May 11) Billboard is excited to debut the cover of that issue, which features Wolverine slashing Sentinels while Wayne Coyne looks on quizzically.

“Being in an X-Men comic where they (the X-Men themselves) actually run security at one of our shows… I should have written a song about that,” Coyne says. “I mean… before it really happened.”

New Hacking Mix: Poolside’s Contact High

It’s getting to be that time of the evening – the phone finally stops ringing. The inbox seems to be in ebb. Slack’s flutter is beginning wane.

It’s grind time.

Time to dust off the hard projects. The focus projects. The phone-on-silent, door-locked, angry-don’t-talk-t0-me-face-on, lets-gsd projects.

Pop on the headphones, turn the volume up, and rock this.

They may be called Poolside, but they always seem to hit the spot for me desk-side and their latest mixtape called “Contact High” is no different.

Featuring re-worked tracks from Phillipi & Rodrigo, Delegation and Evinha with Poolside‘s trademark dialed back but funky rhythms.

Hope you enjoy as much as we are.
