It was in 2013, in a vintage car from the 1960s, that Benjamin Moreau had the idea of creating a new kind of collaborative site: Radiooooo – the five “o’s” representing the five continents. The following year, Karl Planck joined him with the firm intention of shaking up the conventions of the usual music streaming platforms. It is an invitation to travel that Radiooooo offers, taking us on the roads of the Mediterranean Riviera in search of an elsewhere. Synonymous with sharing, conviviality, and curiosity, this collaborative site opens the doors to a cosmopolitan and eclectic universe, far from all conventions. Radiooooo is above all a family of enthusiasts wishing to convey through their cosmos a timeless beauty that will never fade.
There is only one step between streaming and crowdsourcing. The music in the platform’s library is sorted by year and by country, allowing users to enrich their musical culture and unearth previously forgotten treasures as they listen. “Every day, the collaborative site receives between 150 and 200 pieces of music from music lovers around the world. The music is then processed by our team, which judges whether it corresponds to our editorial line,” says Karl Planck. Imagined by Benjamin Moreau and his sidekick Noémi Ferst – in charge of the graphic universe of the duo Polo & Pan – the pop and colored universe of Radiooooo offers a beautiful escape, not far from a chimerical country.
