Mix'd - Tinder for Clubbers

Mix'd - Tinder for Clubbers

Swipe right for Skrillex.

Ever gone home with someone cute, only to have them completely kill the vibe by putting on Vance Joy in the background? Rejoice - there's a new dating app about to go large that will ensure you only hook up with hotties that have your taste in tunes (seriously though, if your seduction playlist is not 70% soft R n B what are you even playing at?!) 

Launched in New York last week (and currently only available in the US, although developers plan to extend it overseas soon), Mix'd is a new dating app that asks you to pick your favourite DJs and music when you sign up - giving you the option to swipe left or right based on music taste. Let's hope it fares better than previous club music dating sites TechnoDating and EDM-Date did - it's the first app for mobiles though, which gives it a big headstart.

A big feature of Mix'd is 'concert mode' - where it shows others what music gigs you're heading to (scanning your Facebook for your events), and alerts you when someone you've 'hearted' is going to / at the same gig. Yey, you can find your next date on the dancefloor at the Drake show! You can also share tracks via the app (concert nearly over... quick, send 'em 'Just Hold On, We're Going Home'!)

Mix'd is going to come as great news to the venue managers who were bemoaning Tinder in an article in the Sydney Morning Herald the other week, saying how the search for sex is killing attendance at live music gigs: "more and more people prefer to stare at their phones and swipe left or right rather than head out to a bar where they might meet somebody," said one live music booker. If Mix'd takes off, knowing you'll bump into your crush at the club could just get a few more punters heading out into the fray.
