Remem­ber that adorable radio app we land­ed on in March?

As a visu­al­ly-super­fi­cial but sound-heavy dork, I was the only one of the bunch with much enthu­si­asm about it, and so adopt­ed it as my pet Just Fuckin Around project. It’s remained cen­tral to the land­ing page — the embed looks good, and tone flip­pin’ real­ly does beg for an option­al sound­track.

I’ve had a fun few weeks find­ing weird uni­code char­ac­ters and record­ing ille­gal adver­tise­ments for defunct com­pa­nies, but now — thanks to the pre­cious angels that make up Anchor’s devel­op­ment staff — Extra­tone’s sta­tion will be fea­tured in the app’s Music sec­tion. 

As such, we’ll be smooth­ing out our deliv­ery cadence and devot­ing more resources to pre­sent­ing you with more on-beat sounds from with­in the future funk/footwork/coven rap com­mu­ni­ties and beyond.

Please take this thing away from me
nobody wants to hear any more jazz or Detroit tech­no, and I am tech­ni­cal­ly banned from the music beat, any­way.

You can sub­mit tracks & groove-relat­ed dis­cus­sion
via our Discord’s sound­stock chan­nel.

I high­ly encour­age you to do so. Chances are, you’ve got some­thing we’ve nev­er heard, lying around.

We’ll be feel­ing out our role in the next few weeks, but dead air will no longer be a thing.

In sum­ma­ry: get the god­damned app.

It’s a gen­uine­ly pleas­ant-to-use addi­tion to your pock­et clut­ter hell, and inno­v­a­tive in all the ways that excite us about the future of radio.
