PSLY nightclub app lets you vote on what the DJ plays next
The PSLY nightclub app was created to “control the vibe.”
A startup in Toronto has turned the most heinous act in club culture into an app; requesting tracks. Anyone who has ever DJ’d or respects the flow of DJ’s can attest to the blatant cacophony of clubgoers interrupting DJ’s to ask if they can play your song- which is oftentimes way out of the current mood and flow.
Well, PSLY, an app that was created by Yonathan Kristos and his friends aims to put requesting power in the hands of clubgoers, with the track with the most votes next on queue.
PSLY is currently available via Apple’s app store after being launched at Toronto’s Love Child Social House on June 8. And now it’s being used at Figures nightclub every Friday.
Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can connect to an event/club and to the DJ AKA the human jukebox.
From there, users can search and select a track from their music libraries. The track with the most votes will play next.
Worryingly, the app is getting reviews like this:
“Really enjoyed using this app on a night out! Takes nightlife to the next level.”
Rant incoming… Why even go out if you’re going to be on your phone selecting songs the whole time? Why pay a DJ to stand there and be a jukebox? Has the world gone mad??
“We’re just trying to reach as many people as we can to share the experience with,” Kristos told blogTO in an email.
Kristos hopes the app will grow so that Torontonians will “control the vibe” in the city.
Luckily this monstrosity won’t infiltrate the underground circuit, where you go to events BECAUSE of the DJ booked.
PSLY nightclub app, please just don’t.
