Your Mixcloud, now in sync
We’ve been busy working on the latest updates to our iOS and Android apps and we’re excited to announce they’re now available.
Our great looking new player design includes a play queue so you can line up shows and listen for hours. If you run out of shows there’s no need to pull your phone out – we’ll automatically play a suggestion for you.
The play queue is synced with your account across your devices and web browsers so you can seamlessly carry on listening where you left off.
As well as all of that we’ve also added landscape mode for tablets and improved the performance and stability for faster, more stable browsing and playback.

The Attic is a new online magazine launched in December 2014 that emphases a wide variety of music genres and investigates different cultures from all around the world. The Attic Magazine is based in Bucharest – Romania (editorial / events) and Oslo – Norway (technical / editorial). Other contributors also come from Brussels, Berlin, Stockholm and Chicago.
The online publication narrates empirical listening experiences from different collaborators, through reports, features and interviews with various artists, DJs, composers and ensembles, music reviews and audio podcasts. The music approach has no typical boundaries of genre, style, time or space, but admits its importance and relevance.
We question everything and try to pursuit the essence of what we believe is good, timeless and continues to resonate regardless of its release date.
The Auditorium is an evocative section of the website where visitors will find 4 different types of podcasts.
The Attic Podcast comprises mixtapes coming from inspiring and visionary artists, musicians and DJs. Amongst the guests who contributed so far we can mention the Turkish DJ and producer Bariș K, veteran Intergalactic Gary, Tolouse Lowtrax from the German band Kreidler, Dom Thomas of B-Music, Ukrainian DJ and producer Vakula, Italian musician Heinrich Dressel, Aaron Moore from Volkano the Bear, the Romanian upcoming star Borusiade, Red Light Radio co-founder Orpheu The Wizard and much more.
