Invitez tes potes: Whyd Paris Launch - 24 Avril

This blog post we will break with tradition in order to put out some important information to all the French speakers in Paris: 

La semaine prochaine on va fêter le lancement de la nouvelle page Whyd Paris, un radio proposé par les music lovers parisiens qui partagent toujours des bons sons. 

Ça represent aussi une nouvelle manière de la presentation des contenus chez Whyd, pour toucher un audience plus large. 

Donc on compte sur vous de inviter tes amis à la fête la semaine prochaine, et aussi de les proposer à rejoindre la communauté parisien si c’est intéressante pour eux. 

Il faut que tous les gens de Paris sachent que Whyd Paris existe, et c’est pour ça qu’on invite tout le monde à notre fête le 24. 

À très bientôt, et never stop jamming! 

Everyone Welcome Guillaume!

When the team split and we began our quest for world domination, we were feeling a little lonely with just half the team in Paris. So we decided to bring in some help, to develop the city pages, improve the experience of the Whyd community, and help us with the all-important growth hacking. His name is Guillaume, and he is a music lover.

He claims to love all music, and this is certainly a theory that we will test, but he is most passionate about 80’s funk, ripping off a list of artists and groups that we’ve never heard of before, which solicited a lot of respect, and intrigue. 

Guillaume will be here with us until June 20th, so make sure that you subscribe to him on Whyd for what is promising to be some very, very cool jams. 

From the Whyd team: Welcome Guillaume! Never stop jamming.

Whyd Spring Playlist Contest

It’s that time of the year again! When the warm temperatures defrost our shuddering bones and drinks start to be consumed outside. Tracks are laid down, volumes go up. 

And so, it is without further ado that we announce the Whyd #Spring Playlist Contest, a two week competition to see who can make the funkiest, hippest playlist that represents the spring, and the potential of 2014 in general. 

Here’s how it works: 

  • Make a playlist titled Whyd Spring Playlist on Whyd
  • Create your playlist directly with this link
  • Add at least 8 tracks that reflect the theme of Spring
  • Share your playlist as much as possible on FB and Twitter (mention us @whyd so that we can help you!) and the most shared playlists will be selected as finalists
  • The Whyd team will select a winner who will receive a bottle of rosé and will be featured across the Whyd network! 

The contest starts now and ends on April 22nd, never stop jamming! 

April Fools Day Joke: A Chance To Reaffirm Our Mission

Yesterday’s post nailed it: we pranked the community and said that starting today Whyd would be a $20/month subscription. We scared some people, which means that the April Fools joke totally worked. 

Of course, those who know us saw immediately that we were playing around, Whyd is not going to become some expensive platform for the rich, Whyd is about sharing music, no matter which platform you use, no matter where you are in the world. Music is universal, and so is Whyd. 

As we’ve said over and over again, Whyd is a community, brought together by our common love. Our mission is to create a world wide soundsystem featuring the best of the newest music and the coolest music lovers around. We’re thankful that we’ve already come so far, and we can’t wait to see where we will all go next. 

Never stop jamming
