I chose Patreon because I wanted things to be super-transparent and managed by a 3rd party (for trust). Also, I want the new features and directions for dnbradio to be decided by the Patrons

Some history about us
The website known as dnbradio.com is one of the longest running dedicated drum and bass / jungle radio stations in existence. Established in 2003, I was lucky enough to watch it blossom into one of the fastest growing streaming sites for drum & bass music amassing 700-1000 unique simultaneous listeners plus many thousands listening hours daily. 

Today, the site connects people who share a passion for a certain sound and I like to think the station has silently raised the bar for what it means to broadcast over the internet. Because of the sheer dedication and positive feedback from people I want to take things to the next level--more shows, more channels, more famous guests, a new way to connect with and pay artists and labels (better than Spotify), better UX, server upgrades, and updates to mobile and desktop players, plus more backend tools and features for dj's and labels.

Why become a patron?
Being a patron to dnbradio means you are supporting the cost of bandwidth, server costs, outsourced development, and operating costs as well as sustaining a profit for the project, which will allow me to put more time and energy into it.

Goals
$406 of $500 per month
It is really up to the community to decide.
I chose Patreon because I wanted things to be super-transparent and managed by a 3rd party (for trust).  Also, I want the new features and directions for dnbradio to be decided by the Patrons, and if the patrons want me to do all the deciding and managing.. that is fine too. :)  Here is a list of things that have been on my mind:

DJ goodies

DJ's who become a patron will be included in dnbradio's itunes RSS feed which receives 2,000-10,000 uniques weekly. You will get a dnbradio.com/myname link. The page will automatically pull in content from your social networks and you will have a special RSS feed which lists all your previous shows (or shows based on tag). We will select high quality content from you to be featured on DNBRadio's social blast.

Integrations with Mixcloud, Soundcloud, Youtube, etc..
Listeners are all over.  In a recent poll most of them now use Soundcloud, Mixcloud, TuneIn, Spotify, iTunes, VLC, etc..  With this budget, we will be able to stay ahead of the curve and go where the listeners are pushing more content and snippets (including our own dj shows) to any platform imaginable (even Spotify, iTunes, or even Beatport).  We want our fans to be able to find us anywhere and for artists and creators to feel a real connection to the people consuming their content. 

Moar smarter live show links...
For dj's, instead of promoting the standard player link when you do your live show, you will be able to give a unique url which only points to your show.. and if your show has been completed it will point to your archive. If archive is expired or deleted we will redirect the user to your dj profile page.

Moar Radio Programming
Radio Programming refers to the content we decide to broadcast. We recently launched a darkstep channel. We could seek out and splice in content from labels you are most interested in. It is really up to the community to decide.
