Los Angeles-based startup Beastmode.fm has built a music discovery platform that not only sources content from some of the top music recommendations sites on the web, but also requires no licensing. Built around some of the top music bloggers, Beastmode aggregates content of 2,200 curated music blogs and free-to-play platforms including SoundCloud, YouTube, MixCloud, and Pitchfork into a single music player.

Beastmode is free, extremely easy to use, and offers a wide selection of the newest music as it hits the Web. It's currently available as a desktop app, but the company plans to release an Android app by the end of this week, and has an iOS app in development set to release in early 2013. The company plans to earn money through iTunes and Google Play affiliate fees from music downloads originating through their platform.
