We made waves when we worked with Concord Music Group to develop the Stylus jazz app for Spotify.  That music discovery app was praised by fans and critics alike for its striking graphics and user-friendly functionality and would eventually land among Spotify’s Top 20 apps.  Well, we’re back at it.  This time partnering with legendary music label Fania to develop a new discovery app that brings listeners the very best in Latin music.

faniaLatin Music by Fania couldn’t be launched at a better time as it comes on the heels of Fania Records 50th anniversary.  As the first Latin music Spotify app, Latin Music by Fania pulls from the label’s deep catalog of iconic artists including Ray Barretto, Willie Colon, Ruben Blades, DJ Joe Claussell, and of course, the Fania All Stars.  This music has already impacted the world, but Fania wants to excite a new generation of fans.

Like Stylus, the Fania app has been designed to be eye-catching and easy-to-navigate while offering both new music and classic tracks that will appeal to aficionados as well as newcomers.  You can navigate by artist, track, genre, or based on whatever ‘mood’ you’re in.  And of course, you can always shuffle through all of these to find hidden treasures that just might become your new favorites.

If you’re a Latin music lover or someone who simply wants to see what the rich genre has to offer, there’s no better tool than the Latin Music by Fania app for Spotify.  Latin Music by Fania is what you get when a groundbreaking music label meets a groundbreaking Los Angeles mobile development shop.  Check it out here and tell us what you think!
