App Store Description

I was bored with Pandora. I was tired of Apple Music and Spotify. So I built Rebelation.

Hi! My name is Andrei Volgin. I’ve been enjoying Rebelation for three years, and now I want you to try it.

What makes Rebelation different?

1. Super Clean & Simple User Interface

Try it, you’ll see.

2. Deep Personalization

Other services put you in a box (e.g. “classic rock”) from which you never escape. Their idea of personalization is recommending more of the same.

I invented a new collaborative filtering algorithm that overcomes the limitations of matrix transformations. This means that at Rebelation we treat you as a unique human being.

We see personalization as a journey. Sometimes you want to further explore what you already know. Sometimes you want to venture out. In either case, Rebelation is your knowledgeable guide.

Every time you create a station, favorite an artist, upvote or downvote a recording, our recommendation engine gets to know you better. Give it a little time, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. Every day.

3. Zero-Effort Music Discovery

Discovering new music should not feel like work. On Rebelation you move the adventure slider between “predictable”, if you want to hear more of your favorites, and “surprising”, if you are in a mood for something new. That’s it.

I found more amazing artists in 1 year on Rebelation than in 30 years before it. I’ve even discovered new genres, like Electro Swing, Nu Jazz, and Symphonic Metal. What will you discover?

WARNING: Discovering new music with no effort can be addictive!

4. Play Me

Sometimes I know exactly what I want: a Pink Martini station. More often, I don’t have the time or desire to figure out what to listen to next. So I hit Play Me - an endless mix of music I already love and music I might enjoy, created just for me. Never repetitive, never stale. It’s like having your own personal radio station, but even better.

5. Play Friends

Hanging out with friends and can’t decide whose music to play? On Rebelation, that’s no problem. Go to Play Friends, select your friends and yourself, and press Play. You’ll get a smart mix of everyone’s favorites.

6. Unique Stations

In addition to Play Me, Play Friends and as many custom stations as you want to create, we’ve added a few others you might like.

Hot & New plays what's hot and new :) However, we are not talking Top 40. It’s way smarter than that.

Try Club Experience if you want to feel like you’re in a club or lounge.

Relax/Meditate offers options from new age to sounds of nature.

All of these stations have an option to personalize your experience, and you can hide any you don’t use.

7. Smart Favorites & Upvotes

Rebelation plays the entire catalogs of your favorite artists - from hits to deep cuts. I love Eric Clapton and Leonard Cohen, but over the years I forgot how many great songs they have that don’t make it to most playlists. Rebelation helped me rediscover their music.

On Rebelation you can give 1, 2, or 3 upvotes when you like a recording. The more upvotes, the more frequently you’ll hear it. Also, your recent upvotes play more frequently than older ones.

There is some serious brain science behind what we do to optimize your listening experience. It’s all about pattern recognition, emotional processing and dopamine release in the nucleus accumbens. But all you need to do is listen!

8. Preloads

You can preload music for those situations when you’re offline or have a spotty connection.

9. Nobody Tells You What To Listen To

On Rebelation there are no curators. On Rebelation everyone is a curator. Every time you upvote a recording or favorite an artist you improve the experience not just for yourself, but for everyone else too. The beauty of music and math, woven together.

I’ve been building Rebelation for three years now. Honestly, I’m a bit nervous to let my baby out in the world. But it’s time. Try it. Let me know what you think.
