:: Background information
PlayFM is the most comprehensive audio database for DJ and club culture on the internet. More than 12.000 DJ sets, live recordings and radio sessions can be streamed free of charge and on-demand. DJs can upload and release studio mixes, radio sessions and event recordings themselves and check their audience statistics. The PLAY.FM audio player visualizes the entire set in wave-form, enabling the user to set time markers in order to identify and enquire about unknown tracks in wiki form. Each identified track is linked to the meta-shop: currently 1.4 million tracks from 7 different online shops can be compared on PLAY.FM’s metashop where tracks are categorized according to quality and/or pricing.

MOTIONLAB was assigned to do the visual room design for PlayFM’s one year birthday bash. The design – kept in the colours of PlayFM’s corporate identity – sticks to the lifestyle of their target group: young open minded people, interested in (electronic) music, style and youth culture.
