Calling all curators. It’s your time to shine.
Among a vibrant community of artists and fans, curators are a crucial third pillar of Audius. The existence of stronger tastemakers spotlighting emerging artists is just part of what makes Audius so unique, especially in an age when the largest playlists are historically saved for the biggest names and major labels.
With Audius, curators can earn network rewards, meaning there’s never been a better time to take advantage of all the awesome music at your fingertips.
To get a sense of playlists that have seen strong traction in the past, check out ‘Top Playlists’ under the Explore tab.
You’ll notice that the Top Playlist tab features 20 playlists, just a small glimpse into the vibrant taste-making community emerging on Audius.
Take Max | Zyen, an active community member who created a lo-fi leaning playlist ‘good vibes and nice grooves’ full of a ton of up and coming producers that make Audius the diverse platform it is today.
Or the Urban Bankai team from Atlanta, who curate a monthly Up Next ATL playlist, spotlighting rising artists from Atlanta’s world-famous rap mecca.
Notice the beautiful cover artwork, the description, and the curation! *chef’s kiss*
Curation on Audius
Making a new playlist is easy. Check out the left hand side of the page and you’ll notice a ‘Playlist’ section that saves all your playlists.
Hover over the + NEW button to create your own!
Upload or generate an image, add a title and let people know what your playlist is about!
After saving the above, head on over to your Profile and select the Playlist tabs to check out your creation.
On Audius, your playlists are kept private by default, meaning you’ll need to select Make Public to share with your peers.
Now it’s time to have some fun! Start discovering new music and adding it by clicking the … button on the bottom right of any track and selecting ‘Add to Playlist”.
Once you’ve got a good catalog going, take to the streets and show off what you got!
The best place to share your playlists is on socials like Twitter or in our bumping Discord. We’ve got a special #audius-playlist channel dedicated specifically to curators like yourself, so be sure to pop in and share your taste with your fellow AUDIOphiles.
In the meantime, be sure to give your friends a heads up, as there’s never been a better time to curate on Audius than right now.
Until then, we’ll see you on the Trending charts!
