Emuzikos is a dedicated database to local musicians, bands and agents. Users can quickly register for an Emuzikos account in less than 60 seconds and then start their search. Once registered users receive their own fully customizable profile which lists the user's favorite genres, a picture of them, instruments that they play and even a map showing their stomping grounds. Also included in membership is a private message mailbox, and access to the Emuzikos database. The Emuzikos inbox and personal messaging system helps users maintain their privacy and also prevent being spammed in their personal, main inbox. Additionally, Emuzikos has a number of other service features built into it as well. One of these is Soundcloud which is an online music player. Emuzikos also comes with Soundkick which announces a user's event. Youtube is also built in for video-play. Classifieds can also be posted on the Emuzikos system so musicians can connect with each other, with the instruments that they need or the gigs they need too. Best of all, Emuzikos is a free service.
Emuzikos was developed by Boris Rorsvort who is a busy guy in the webdesign and development space. The site has mainly European users today and is available in both French and English. It seems the site launched in February 2012. As of April 2012, the database and user-base were still in their infant stages.
Emuzikos considers itself the first easy and free application to help users find musicians. The site does have a pretty easy registration process and its search filters are very straightforward. Unfortunately, (as of this review date) there was not a ton of users or data included in the database. Hopefully this will change as the site becomes more popular.
Emuzikos has a clean and intuitive interface that is easy to use. Users can quickly and simply find their future band mates, instruments or anything else to help them out in their musical endeavors. Emuzikos's database is easy to use thanks to its many filtering options that makes getting a manageable number of results simple. For the users who can't locate exactly what they are looking for, they are encouraged to create their profile so others could find them in the future. Since the application is relatively new, the database is quite limited and the site is in a growing phase. Given time, this may become more useful.
Emuzikos claims that new users can sign up for its service in just 60 seconds. This is true for users who can input the following information in a minute: username, email address, password, password confirmation, zip code and country. Users can also link their Facebook account for faster, future logins.
Emuzikos is a free application. The application prides itself on being a free service and feels that they should never charge musicians just for connecting to other musicians.
Emuzikos is a good application for musicians, bands and agents of small groups to be aware of. It can help connect these artists to gigs and they could find some additional benefits in the classifieds search. Emuzikos could also be a good application for anyone who enjoys music and who wants to get closer to their local music scene. Presently the application has mainly a French base of users.
