We bring the DJ to your living room.
In order to do this we need state of the art technology that is able to compete with Spotify. This type of R&D is the sole purpose of Awaves Lab. An example of our technology is the research of Koen van den Brink, our lead A.I. programmer. He recently published his bachelor thesis on finding the drop in electronic music using neural networks.
