As Amplify.ph turns two, it celebrates music by aspiring to be the ultimate place that allows everyone to participate and be part of the local music scene. By providing quality music, letting you listen and download for free (as long as you watch the ads), Amplify.ph gets you in the zone.
This year, in partnership with UST Tiger Radio, Amplify reaches out to the Thomasian community in the hopes of promoting local music, focusing mainly on indie. The UST Tiger Radio has launched the Amplify Hour, an hour of OPM on Fridays, from 8 to 9 in the evening. Listeners may tune in through Mixlr, streaming at mixlr.com/ustigeradio. While you’re at it, follow Tiger Radio on Mixlr as well and be notified whenever your favorite jocks are on air.
Accompanying Amplify Hour is Catnip, a mixtape series released on Mondays. Each mixtape follows a theme, a story everyone can relate to. Along with the playlist is the Amplify player widget, allowing the listeners to listen to the songs and even download them. Catch the first mixtapes here on kittenshq.org.
Aside from promoting music by local artists, the partnership also shines the spotlight on Thomasian talent─ bands that started within the University or bands composed of Thomasian students and alumni alike. After all, who could love these bands as much as the Thomasian community?
So widen your horizons, discover new music to listen to, people to follow and bands to scream for. Make new friends─ people who enjoy the same music as you do, or even the people behind the songs themselves. Find love as you play song after song, and show love as you come to gig after gig. All these with just a couple of clicks! Through Amplify.ph and UST Tiger Radio, be part of the growing local music scene. Through Amplify.ph and UST Tiger Radio, the roar gets louder!
