MiXBiT is a Robot powered Virtual club experience.
20 Robot Dj's have been created to perform for your listening pleasure. Genetic data has been collected, processed and analysed from 20 of the most prolific superclub DJs on the planet. This data has been harnessed in the creation of our 20 robots. We have kept our recreations as true as possible, therefore as you will hear, Random tunes are picked from the 7digital library and we have gone to great pains to ensure that no live mixing occurs.
We'd like to say that no harm came to any DJs during the DNA collection process, as you will be glad to hear... we cannot. We collected from David Guetta twice... Just to make sure.
7digital's music API, jQuery, socket.io, lodash, audio.js, Sass, Compass, Handlebars, Redis, Nodemon, Bower, Grunt, jshint, express and nodejs

Thanks Gerard, glad you enjoyed it. You're not far off the mark with a node-based turntablefm as the original concept, time-constraints and not enough planning bit us though. We've also quickly realised the dry self-deprecating British humour in the pitch is lost on a lot of people! We definitely plan to come back to the project. In fact we're already signed up for london music hackday.

Thanks for taking the time to vote and give us feedback. Yeah you're absolutely right about the number of rooms. Unfortunately we spotted a bug late in the competition when the number of rooms got above a certain number causing the UI to overflow, so decided to setup a cronjob to limit the number to keep the UI looking good. We also definitely could have done a better job of explaining the technology involved. Each room tracks its position and the sockets are used to communciate with the clients, to ensure they remain in sync with the playlist and to provide new tracks when the play queues run out.
I'm sorry you didn't enjoy our app. Do you have any specific feedback for us so we can improve?
basically i didn't get it. i didn't understand why a given song was playing, why i would use this compared to other source of music playlists. additionally i couldn't go to the next track, which i was expecting to be able to do. at a tech level i didn't understand what you were doing behind the since and why this was a good node project.
Thanks, glad you liked it. If we were to ever launch this as a real app, then we'd have to ensure it followed the DMCA radio rules (which it doesn't currently) or use another playlist source such as echonest which does follow them instead of a random selection in a genre.
Sorry about the streaming problems, streaming using using HTML5 is quite tricky and we are trying to pre-buffer to provide a nice and smooth experience.
Thanks for the feedback, we are planning to release an updated version when the competition ends with improved music selection. We need to implement properly the DMCA rules for radio streaming.
Unfortunately the persistent play list position is working only in one room. We will release an updated version after the competition :)
Thanks, glad you liked it. Sorry the room creation wasnt workng for you we hit our API daily request limit last night. It's back working again now.
