Re-redesign? It was a year ago. We tried to get them on then.
New app for Android/iOS. Very similar to responsive web version.
App came out soon after!
How is Jamendo dev team? 8 people. 7 devs, and one manager.
1 dev is UX/graphic design.
Always been a music platform, where you can upload music. No filters.

From the email: “It's a really nice goodbye track, just released in the past few weeks, it has that melancholy and underlying feeling of closure.
It's only the second single from British-born, Australia-based musician Zack Linton since he first appeared on Jamendo last year, and his bluesy rock sound is so good, so well written and produced, I just can't get enough from the guy. I'm going to need to start harassing him to release more tunes!”
