If you’re a dj, and I mean a real DJ with residencies, tours, remix projects etc than I’m sure you know about the value of the Hype Machine at hypem.com. Don’t get me wrong soundcloud and other sharing sites are great but when you’re looking for that one thing for your set, that one thing that had you going to Upstairs in Brooklyn or 12″ Dance Records in DC, chances are you’re finding it on Hype Machine.
Well there’s great news coming out of Boston Massachusetts as the fine development team at Dirty Water Labs has unleashed UberHype to the Android Market.
More after the break
Dirty Water’s lead developer Gaurav Mehta told thedroidguy.com it was so important to him and his friends to have access to the hypem site on their Android phones, that they originally did a hack job.
“The first prototype that we had built was scrapping Hype Machine website & then scrapping the actual mp3 links from the destination music blogs. It was a completely hacked up but effective alpha version which we demoed to Hype Machine and they agreed to release their private APIs to us :).”
