Red Bull Music Academy Radio
This isn't necessarily a perfect fit with the AAS demographic, I suspect, but for anyone who's into hip hop, 21st century DJing and so on, Red Bull Music Academy Radio is an interesting idea. Taking a wealth of live recordings of various 'DJ' sets from the last few years, along with a handful of interviews, it's all brought together in a streaming interface that's as wonderful as it's confusing and err... broken. Still, plug it into a 1kW amp stack and you've got yourself a heck of a house party....
Here's Red Bull Music Academy Radio in action:
The bitrate isn't clear and there's no way to skip around within a stream, but quality seems pretty high (I listened on high spec headphones). There's also no support for phone volume control buttons, so you have to use a very fiddly on-screen control.
Frequently confusing in its interface, partially broken, Red Bull Music Academy Radio is still worth a look if you're into house music as it's a free download in the Nokia Store.
