Amazing. A few days ago I tweet this: If only every "Request for Product" tweet came to be. πŸ€”

Hi Product Hunt, My name is Guillaume and I built this with my co-founder Mario. We're both developers and live out in Venice, CA and recently quit our jobs to pursue a cryptocurrency startup, Ember Fund. The reason we're building this is because we saw a tweet from Ryan Hoover (Founder of Product Hunt) 48 hours ago and we thought it was awesome, so we built it πŸ™‚ We hope this product can help you discover new artists in your city. We designed it so it’s really easy to use, no Spotify login required, the playlists are auto-generated and public to everyone. We use the Songkick API to find the artists performing in the city you choose. Let us know what you think! P.S. If you're into cryptocurrency check out our ship page --> https://www.producthunt.com/upco...

@guillaume_torche what a quick turnaround, nicely done! Would love to hear a little about the tech stack used for the site.
@guillaume_torche @cedricamaya Hi Cedric, This is Mario, one of the other crazy makers :) Thanks! Glad you like it. We leverage a simple EC2 instance running a Flask (Python) web server :) Simple but effective.

This is great! I saw Ryan's tweet, and thought it would be nice to add this to my music player app. It would be nice if you could add genre to the search criteria, so if I only want to listen to punk or jazz, I don't want J Lo coming up in my playlist πŸ˜…

@markohlebar JLo.. scary thought indeed. Definitely would be IMO the next feature to build on the backlog! We were thinking it would be cool to leverage the Discover Weekly playlist to understand what music you like and then generate a list based on that :)

@astghik_azaryan Hi there! We use Songkick API to search for music. I would say almost all cities in the world are in their database. :)
