After announcing his retirement from radio (Watch the video below). He decided to tap some of his good friends and investors to “bring back radio”, that’s when DASH Radio was created. On August 19 the new radio platform was launched on the App Store and mobile web, which it will soon be available for Android users.
As Billboard pointed out:
DASH Radio is an internet-radio platform for Apple iOS, Google Android and mobile web that combines the niche mainstream and niche genre stations of Sirius XM with the guerilla sensibilities of EVR and DJ Skee’s own SKEE 24-7.
The DASH Radio investors include:
L.A. Reid (chairman and CEO of Epic Records), Matt Michelsen (co-founder of Backplane), Mike Lazerow (former CEO of Buddy Media), Minnesota Vikings Running Back Adrian Peterson, and Peter Ferraro (co-founder of East Village Radio).
L.A. Reid had this to say:
“Radio has always been the biggest avenue for music discovery. DASH provides an innovative platform for artists while offering listeners the variety they want, without limitations.”
DJ Skee is truly making a statement with this move, so far people are loving DASH Radio and has 5-Star Rating on the App Store. Below are DASH Radio’s features:
