[Dutch] 22tracks op UPC Horizon

De muziekdienst 22tracks is toegevoegd aan de Appstore van Horizon van UPC. In deze bekroonde music discovery service geven gerenommeerde dj’s uit Amsterdam, Brussel, Londen en Parijs in 22 verschillende genres een eenvoudig overzicht van de allerbeste nieuwe muziek. Achter de schermen werd er de afgelopen maanden hard gewerkt aan hun compleet nieuwe website, mobiele applicaties en deze speciale TV-app.

Vincent Reinders, creatief directeur van 22tracks: “Speciaal voor de Horizon Mediabox is er een compleet nieuwe gestripte variant van ons platform gebouwd. Hierbinnen is het gebruiksgemak geoptimaliseerd voor de afstandsbediening en ligt de nadruk meer dan ooit op de strakke visuele ervaring van een bewust beperkt muzikaal aanbod. In plaats van een overkill aan miljoenen tracks aanbieden, serveren wij een nauwkeurige gefilterde voorselectie van nieuwe kwaliteitsmuziek waarvan we zeker weten dat de Horizon-gebruiker nog veel plezier gaat beleven. Bij uitstek geschikt tijdens huisfeestjes of lui onderuitgezakt op de bank: kies je genre en 22tracks regelt de rest.”

Directeur Content bij UPC, William Linders, licht de Appstore verder toe: “De Horizon App Store is een verbreding van onze TV diensten. We richten ons op de categorieën video, muziek in combinatie met beeld, gaming en social media en zijn blij dat we met 22tracks de TV-beleving voor onze klanten kunnen verrijken.“

“I Blame Myself” is a personal song about Sky Ferreira and her public image (as a troublemaker, I think, I’m not sure, she may also be exaggerating, as is her right). The black men in her video are also not what they may appear to be, although I’m not sure they should blame themselves, too.

 

South Korea’s Waveya dance group show off their versatility in a video produced for Belgium’s B-Classic – Festival van Vlaanderen.
