This is a classic

I remember when I purchased this app! It’s free now, but I’ve never regretted investing in hype machine! I’ve told all my friends, when everyone asks where did u get this playlist? It’s just all my hype machine likes! Every day I’ve found a new gem. And here I am years later playing my playlist on shuffle. Which I’ve never done. And every song, every like / save brings back a memory. A time with a friend , a new adventure, somehow this app just surprised me even more and I didn’t think it was possible. Thank you for such a beautiful and classic app. This will always be my go to music app.

This app has undergone so many changes. Overall, it’s the best app for discovering new music and also excellent remixes. I just wish the shuffle feature in my favorites list were more robust. I notice a pattern of the same couple of songs always being played. I’d donate money to see that.

Love the music I’ve discovered, annoyed by the playback glitch

Love Hype machine for all the new music and artists it’s introduced me to, no issues with music aspect at all.

But as for playback, every time I pause a song for a while, like longer than 30 sec, and go back to the app to resume the song, I’m met with a black screen and “Label” on the bottom. No access to menu or anything, so then I have to close and reopen and find the last song I was listening to. Really hope this is fixed soon bc it’s quite annoying having to do that every time!
