How it works

Using the interactive Musicovery 'mood pad' you can select a mood of music that is gauged between 'Energetic/Calm' and 'Dark/Positive'. A custom playlist of music from various artists fitting your mood will then be played to you. You can further refine what is played on your Mood Radio by setting additional filters like musical genre and musical era.

Music is streamed live to you, not downloaded, and there is the option to buy music via major online music retailers.

Besides the Mood Radio, the site also features Dance Radio, Artists Radio, and What's New.

  • Dance Radio - refine your listening choice by tempo
  • Artist Radio - search for a particular artist and get music of a similar style
  • What's New - discover newly released music
