Relaunched back in February, Sydney-based startup Sound Shelter uses machine-learning technology to help users with real-time record searching. The platform currently has audio clips for around 120,000 records and links to Juno, Hardwax, HHV, Deejay, and a few smaller stores. Once a user has selected a record they want, Sound Shelter checks stores and offers a list of stores currently stocking that particular record.
The platform also offers SMS notifications, personalized music recommendations, DJ charts, and the ability to follow your favorite label and/or artists. Sound Shelter currently boasts a global community of about 6000 users, including a number of world-class DJs, and features chart contributions from artists such as Kai Alce, Patrice Scott, Levon Vincent, Lakuti and others.
