Last week, DJ Skee announced his departure from FM radio with a promise of another venture in the near future.

Enter: DASH Radio, a commercial-free internet-radio platform, backed by Epic Records executive L.A. Reid, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and others.

“A lot of kids think Pandora is radio, but there’s a gross mislabeling that’s happening. Radio was the first social network, the first time people really listened together. And we want to bring that feeling back, but with more freedom than what FM and satellite can offer. Digital radio today is not real radio — it’s like making a mixtape for your friends. There’s still a time where you just want to listen to curated radio, and we want to be that option.” – Skee

Available now on Apple iOS, Google Android and mobile web, DASH kicks off with 50 stations (ranging from Hip Hop and R&B to EDM and Country) and plans to add new stations weekly. Happy listening.

    I expect to see a lot of artist/Dj’s start doing this. Nice lil power move by Skee

    I like this concept. i like the idea that someone will be spinning songs that actually go together and not some algorithm randomly picking songs (which you end up skipping through most of anyway)
