Endlesss have announced the launch of a public beta for Clubs, a new online platform which provides private spaces for music communities to connect and chat, as well as create and share their music.
Clubs are community-managed spaces that work in much the same way as platforms such as Discord or Slack, but have been purpose-built for music communities. At launch, Clubs users will be able to share audio files as Music Messages with other users in their channel — the feature makes it possible to drag, drop and combine audio files from a DAW and have other users download them, add new layers in their own software and return the remixed results as another Music Message. A built-in library containing over 5000 loops is also available directly in any Club.
“ Music makers have been telling us how important it is to build a community. But 25 years since the internet took over the world there still isn’t a purpose-built place to hang out online. Before the internet, recording studios, music venues and record shops were social hubs as well as businesses. The chance encounters people had there drove a huge amount of cultural value and spawned countless new creations. With Myspace disappearing long ago and Soundcloud pivoting to streaming, music has faced a battle against the algorithm. We want making and sharing music to feel more like a community again. That’s why we’re building Clubs.” - Tim Exile, Endlesss founder and CEO
