Rdio New Music Weekly spots

Online Ads, Entertainment

If you haven’t yet heard of Rdio, it’s time you started listening. Rdio is a groundbreaking digital music service started by the founders of Skype. Available on any device in over a dozen countries, Rdio provides subscribers on-demand access to over 20 million songs without ever hearing a single ad. Award-winning multidisciplinary production company Blacklist recently created a series of fifteen-second animated films to promote the service, but you might not recognize them as “ads.” In keeping with Rdio's commercial-free format, the Blacklist campaign is not really advertising; it’s a series of visually spectacular art pieces set to newly released music by cutting-edge artists.
