Dash Radio, the 27/7 online radio platform that’s both free and ad-free, has entered a partnership with lyrics provider Genius. As a result, Genius’ databases of lyrics and and other metadata will be integrated into Dash’s online radio platform. Genius will also provide text transcripts and annotations of Dash Radio’s own content, including artist interviews and talk stations. Genius will also be featuring that Dash Radio content in its own platform, including original Dash Radio broadcasts and interviews as they relate to its annotations and news coverage, according to the press release.
“Dash Radio has always looked outside the box of traditional broadcasting to provide the best new music in an easy and free way for our listeners, beyond the typical Top 40,” said Dash Radio CEO and Founder Scott Keeney (also known as DJ Skee). “By integrating Genius, we’re excited to take that discovery to the next level and take users past what they’re hearing and into the deeper meaning of what the artist is trying to say.”
