EMusic Introduces Infinite Explorations

eMusic announced the launch of Infinite Explorations, a new discovery platform that allows musically curious minds to embark on a limitless journey of music exploration. The app uses a proprietary algorithm informed by eMusic's unique community of culturally independent tastemakers, known for their eclectic and carefully curated music collections that are unbound by genre or the latest trends. To start discovering, a user simply enters an artist's name into Infinite Explorations' search ribbon or chooses an album from the selection that automatically loads when the application launches, which is populated based on the most frequently downloaded albums. The resulting mosaic of album covers recommends similar artists and offers a platform from which users can preview songs off each record, view the artist's full catalog, purchase the album, or repopulate the entire search based on a recommended artist. The end result is an unparalleled opportunity for music explorers to dive as deep into discovering new artists, albums and styles as their hearts desire.
