A new online platform compiling the most influential and cutting edge music from the Nordic countries was launched this week on the web. Nordic Playlist makes it easy to discover and stay updated on the best Nordic music - introduced by the prominent musicians, artists and music professionals of the north. The playlist is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers, chaired in 2014 by Iceland.
The Nordic Playlist, a free-to-use service, will offer a weekly snapshot of the region's hottest acts and biggest tunes - all curated by a host of respected international names, including artists, DJs, journalists and festival bookers. Each week, they will compile a 10-track playlist consisting of two of their favourite tunes from all of the Nordic countries, with the results made available at www.nordicplaylist.com and promoted via licensed streaming partners, Deezer, Spotify and WiMP.
Throughout 2014 a total of 51 prominent curators will reveal playlists featuring songs from their favourite Nordic acts.The Nordic Playlist's aim is to make it easier for any audience to explore the Nordic music scene in the hands of great guides. It is also the aim to create a closer co-operation between the Nordic territories and to show the full dimensions of Nordic creation in a united and international scope.
The Nordic Playlist is produced by NOMEX, the pan-Nordic music export body, and supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers. The initiative aims to promote greater collaboration between the individual Nordic territories, as well as promote Nordic music internationally.
