For Micro Payments We Teamed Up with Dropp

You might have seen a new support link at the top of the site—it is now easier than ever to support what we do here at CHILLFILTR®. If you wanna throw us a few dollars, you have two options: click Support Us at the top of any page, or if you would like to show some love for a specific blog post, every music review that we have written (and after four years there are close to 2000 of them) now has a Dropp button in the row of social links. It's easier than ever to support the content you love!

A sample post: the Dropp link is in green just to the right of the 'share to LinkedIn' button.

Read more about our partnership with Dropp here—they have built a feature-rich and easy to use platform for micro payments that is positioned to change the way that we support our favorite creators.

Funding the wallet is both fast and easy. The low fees and payment split capabilities is part of what is making our new submission platform possible. I am putting the final touches on GETSEEN.app, which will be handling direct submissions for CHILLFILTR and The CHILLFILTR Review. This idea has been brewing in the background for almost a year now, and discovering Dropp was the final piece that needed to fall into place to get this launched.

I will be following up soon with a lot more information about GETSEEN. We are planning for an alpha launch to be ready by March 1. You can sign up to be notified at the link above.

We started re-posting some of our old mix tapes on DSocial. Look for the Indie channel—that's us!

And Now, the Music

It's a huge song list for the month. As a reminder when you support us, you are supporting the musicians that need it the most. More than half of the proceeds every month that we get from submission fees–sometimes all of it—is invested directly back into the community via Bandcamp which is one of our main sources for new music. If you hear a new song that you are enjoying on CHILLFILTR Radio we either got it directly from the musician, their publicist, or we bought it on Bandcamp. Also it is worth mentioning again that our radio broadcast is licensed through Live365, so that is another source of direct support for the independent music community. Our numbers have risen considerably over the last month, and the vast majority of our listeners are either in London or Lappeenranta. Thanks for tuning in!

These songs are new to our library for January, 2022. Most are new releases but, as always, we also pull in future classics from the past decade or so when a good one comes our way.
