Limelight is a new music streaming platform based on geolocation that allows artists to earn exposure based on listener feedback while providing music lovers with new music to discover.

For Artists:
Don’t step into the limelight, create it. Limelight seeks to help up-and-coming artists build an established fanbase, starting with local exposure. Our algorithm lets your music grow organically: as music lovers around you listen to your music, we calculate a listener outreach based on the feedback you receive. As positive feedback increases, so does your exposure, expanding your reach into communities outside of your own.

Upload music directly from the app or by signing into our web app.

For Listeners:
Restore the underground with Limelight, a 100% ad-free location-based music streaming app. Discover new music from artists anywhere on the globe by seamlessly swiping through tracks as you listen to like or dislike, adding them to your library.

Earn A&R points when you correctly predict a track's outcome. Rise to the top of the charts from your track record and show your city you got an ear for talent.

Canadian rapper Ozy ( had been making music for many years, putting his all into the studio creating a unique style of music that many would seem to enjoy in the near future. Prior to limelight, his total career streams across all major platforms were less than 1000.

In less than a year, Ozy has gained over 200,000 streams just on Spotify and has fans leaving comments on his music videos on YouTube telling him they discovered him.

Limelight is disrupting the music industry by supporting talent over clout.
Restore the underground.

Great idea poor execution

I love the idea of this app but it is never working properly for me. It says I have nothing uploaded, which is false, I can’t delete songs, and I can’t play my songs. I supposedly have 3 songs uploaded (2 are the same but that’s cuz they wouldn’t delete) and I can’t hear or do anything to them.

Technical Difficulties

Way to glitchy. Every time I use it there’s always something wrong. When I click on a persons profile and follow it, it makes me follow another account. Another glitch is when I swipe left on a song to dislike it it makes me do it three times!!!! Also the exposure is not good at all. You guys should have fixed your app a while ago it’s been up in the App Store for a long time and I actually downloaded it a long time ago and took a break from it because I knew you guys were working on it. Now that I’m in it and it’s been a long time I’m surprised it’s still as bad as it is. NOT worth your money. Get LÜM all you artists looking for music exposure

Developer Response ,

I appreciate the level of detail regarding the issues you're facing. I'm the founder of this platform and I've needed a slap in the face for a while now to get back into the grove. This review fired my motivation back up to bring this platform to its full potential!

The upcoming version 1.7 is being currently worked on with your comments in mind.

Please don't hesitate to reach out to me personally regarding any further issues or suggestions! @bizlal on instagram.

Great app

App is pretty fire🔥 only problem I see at all is just for artist in smaller cities it’s harder to grow than if you are in New York, but all and all a revolutionary idea! And huge improvement from original app!
