EL&N approached Startle looking for a software system which would allow their head office to control the music played in their site and reinforce the brand across their whole estate, all around the world.
They needed an ultra reliable, regularly updated, and secure music system that they could rely on at all times of the day. They needed playlists without any explicit lyrics, and the ability to import their music flavours directly from Spotify.
This is how we do it
We were so excited when EL&N approached us. After chatting with them, we understood that they needed to be able to express their brand identity through their in-house Spotify playlists, without violating any commercial licensing laws (a typical pain point for enterprise businesses). Their soundtracks needed to be fresh yet familiar, and easily accessible for staff to make changes.
We listened to their needs and our team got to work. We helped them integrate the perfect Spotify playlists, put forward our regularly updated chart-topping playlists, shipped our nifty hardware to them, and they were away.

EL&N wanted a commercial sound that felt radio-esque and familiar. Their target-market of fashion conscious social-media enthusiasts paired well with a mix of nostalgic classics and music chart staples, providing key moments of listener connection. Using our Spotify integration tool and our chart-based playlists, EL&N were able to customise their own sound with just a few clicks.

Look at me now
We’ve been working with EL&N for over a year now, and we’re so excited to continue to grow the partnership. They’re not breaking any licensing rules, their head office is in control, and their sites are sounding as great as their venues look.
