The radio is dead, and Jelli is here to replace it.
Ok, so maybe that’s a bit extreme, but the concept behind Jelli is a fascinating one, and does have the potential to change radio as we know it.
Essentially, Jelly is a single radio station that’s 100% listener controlled. Users can nominate songs, vote for songs they like, and bomb the ones they don’t, and the song with the most votes at the end of the currently playing track gets the next spot in line. The more you listen, the more power you gain, though even first timers have the ability to push a song over the edge.
The result is a mix of music that will surprise and delight, with an ever changing flow of community taste and creative control.
Just don’t expect to hear the Billboard Top 40 playing on repeat any time soon.
