Topsify To Begin Delivery Of Personalized Playlists Via Drone

Screen Shot 2015-04-01 at 12.43.52 AMThat's right – a true music industry first. Leading playlisting service, Topsify, has employed the use of geo-targeting to deliver user playlists to their exact location via drone. 


How on earth does this work?

It's quite simple really. Using cutting edge geo-targeting technology to track the user's IP address, once a playlist is selected, that playlist is burned directly to a compact disc (CD) and flown immediately to the user by a drone. 

Kieron Donoghue from Topsify described where the vision came from. “We wanted to be the first playlisting service to harness the power of drone technology to bring some fun into the world. Yes we live in a streaming age but what could be more exciting that being having a physical copy of your chosen playlist delivered from the sky!?”

Take that, Jay-Z. 

Is it the most practical solution on the table for saving the music business? Probably not – but it's a resourceful one. And, let's be honest, it's plausibly more efficient than trying to stream music off of Comcast's internet service. 

Submissions are now open for your chance to have your playlist delivered to you by the flying Topsify Drone.  Visit

Additionally, Happy April Fools Day.
