“In a world of never-ending scrolling in search of a suitable playlist, I concluded it was time to package one of the most popular music hubs on the largest streaming platforms into a standalone app called simply, but suitably, Moods. Building on my experience as one of the creators of Spotify's global playlist system, I know there are millions of music lovers around the world who enjoy a great mood-based playlist more than any other online facility. Sadly, the overall quality of these playlists on streaming platforms is variable. We at Naxos believe we can provide a better experience for Mood music seekers through Naxos Moods.”
