Music category?

Thoughts for a music category? Just a place for anyone and everyone to post their favorite tunes, and then we'll see which tunes bubble up to the top.

Also a place for music makers to share their tunes as well.

Could we embed Spotify or Soundcloud widgets into a post and get a music category?

Hmm... interesting conversation especially considering I just posted my first episode of a show where I'm just sitting around smoking & playing music while streaming live on vimm.tv using their song request feature so people can request songs

However the idea was to, since I just dabble in producing, mess around in my digital audio workstation on some episodes, sometimes listen to artists on Dsound and that sort of thing... But with making money on it, it does complicate things so I don't know if I'll continue with that format!

As a music producer, I would also love to see a music category here on Smoke.io! For now I am solving it by using the art tag, and then I am tagging music inside of the posts itself...

Music by a member who's active in other ways would definitely, probably be welcome in 'art'. Are musicians not artists?
Music not produced by a member would probably go in 'offtopic.' My only post to not reach payout was an all music post, but it was just referencing music made by a band I have no connection to other than I like their album, so I see that as pretty fair.

Yeah, right now, original music would go into art. I produce music as well, so I'll probably put some into art.... but if music were a separate category, it'd separate the visual arts from the audible arts.

Posting other people's music, like "hey, i dig this tune when I smoke bud" isn't really art... and so someone would use "life" or "offbeat" I guess?

Either way, right now hashtags work pretty well too finding music. It'd be nice to have all the varying tunes in one location... right now #music pretty much does that.

I don't see any harm in creating the category but I agree with @trees. Musicians are no doubt artists so it's apt to use that category.

Looking forward to sharing tunes. Point me to your tracks!

If you go and check out this post about the latest VA album I compiled for my record label, then you will find my latest released track on that album😁

Great post and info in the comments. I am sharing this with @shawsporter as he wants to do a weekly show on vimm.tv and post here on smoke. Thank you!

Thank you for the shout-out Eric!

Great idea.... for now post under art and add a #music tag to your post..l. I have posted a lot of music here in the past.

Is there currently a way to embed the spotify or the soundcloud player? Or is the best way to link to the track or playlist?

I think I have seen people embed the Soundcloud player. It is pretty easy to embed YouTube videos so that is what I usually do. I know everyone tends to hate YouTube but I get paid when my videos are viewed. And call me old fashioned I still need Fiat cash money to pay the bills.

Im not sure if there is such thing.

Shouldn't that be exit 420? LOL
