Whyd is a unification platform that sits above the places where you can find amazing music, like YouTube, Soundcloud, Vimeo, MP3 blogs, Deezer, and more. It lets you share and listen to music no matter which other services you use, alongside other music lovers who like the same music you do. It’s your record collection for the future, to show and share with all of your friends.

So what exactly does Whyd do?

  • Whyd is a social record collection for all of your streaming music. Thanks to the plethora of music online, it is possible to find nearly any song you can possibly desire, every remix, and many performances. The problem is once you find a track that you like, what do you do with it?

    Whyd lets you collect and share the tracks you find, organize them into playlists, share them with anyone, no matter which music service they use, and lets you take your music with you when you are using a different platform from your usual service. Just add your tracks, organize, share, and enjoy.

  • The Green [Add Track] button searches all of your available sources to find the track you are looking for. Find every track you want, every time. Say goodbye to single platform limitations.

    Not sure what to listen to? Subscribe to other like-minded music lovers and enjoy a never-ending stream of new music delivered right to you. Never listen to the same song twice if you don’t want to.

We're open

Whyd has been invite-only for the past year to validate the concept as we have developed it into a simple product ready for the mainstream with a wide range of curators to follow to help make sure that you never run out of music to listen to. Today, we open to the world officially.

Product timeline


We’ve worked hard to cultivate a certain type of active music lover who continuously search across the web for the coolest new music that exists, including exciting concert venues, major record labels, independent artists, hype DJs, off-the-radar bloggers, and everyone in between.

If you want Top 40, turn on your FM radio or queue up Spotify’s charts. If you want to hear something you’ve never expected, check out the community of curators on Whyd.


Whyd is lovingly handcrafted by a group of outrageous music lovers in Paris whose vision for the world is somewhere in between a Nicolas Jaar sweet electronic slide and a KOAN Sound funk blaster. Founded by Gilles Poupardin and Jie Meng-Gerard, the team of five includes a loud American, a furious drummer, a trendy designer, and a combined desire to use technology to take advantage of everything life has to offer.
