Curated by superhumans

Our expertly curated playlists transform a location’s music. They are created from our multimillion track music library that covers every style and genre, is encoded at the highest quality and is fully licensed for business use.

Our experts are equipped with tools to make them superhuman. Our library is analysed with advanced algorithms: AI (Artificial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning), giving us the superpower to understand neuro responses to particular tracks and the sentiment of lyrics.

The result is more appropriate playlists and greater control over the behavioural and emotional responses customers have to the music that's played.
