We believe deeply in the power of music to impact our lives in a variety of meaningful ways. So much so, in fact, that it’s the foundation of Feed Media Group (FMG) and everything we’re building. While we intuitively know that music matters in exercise, as curators of exercise soundtracks for some of the world’s leading fitness brands, we are always working to better understand WHY.
As 2021 draws to a close, many of us are still striving towards a renewed sense of normalcy. One highlight: our exercise routines.
Feed.fm powers music for the world’s leading fitness brands, and we’ve continued to see an increase in usage over the past year. With entertainment options still restricted and high-quality workout programs available at the click of a button, fitness provides an unbeatable value proposition.

Juice up your workout with the latest viral music.
When creating a playlist in 2021, there is an element of nostalgia and the here-and-now. The latter benefits from a keen eye on what music is popping off on TikTok. Even if the songs are less than 3 minutes, they are hugely popular and worth exploring for your next workout.
At 95 years old, the American jazz legend Tony Bennett - known for swinging hits like "I Left My Heart In San Francisco" and "The Best Is Yet To Come" - has been charming generations of listeners and audiences for close to seven whole decades, having recently shattered a Guinness World Record by becoming the oldest person to release an album of new material.
Examining Young Thug’s punk cred from a music curation perspective.
Here at Feed Media Group, curators like myself spend hours listening to music from all genres in search of the perfect songs for our clients. The musical knowledge we share is vast, and for me, a genre that I’m especially in tune with is punk. That’s why when Young Thug announced that his new album was actually going to be called P*nk, for punk, I had to take a closer look.
Today is #kidsmusicday, a day dedicated to keeping music education alive. The opportunity for children to learn about music doesn't just happen in schools, and unfortunately it is increasingly common that budget cuts limit or even eliminate music programs altogether. Every day is an opportunity to share the power of music with kids, both in formal and informal settings.
Now, more than ever, digital fitness solutions must offer robust technology to meet their users wherever they are.
The award-winning and commercial success of Kacey Musgraves’s genre-fluid third album Golden Hour, and subsequent mainstream recognition, inevitably moved her more firmly into the pop quadrant of the country and pop crossover scatter plot. She has always been acutely aware of her position outside of the country mainstream, and many of her songs acknowledge (and even celebrate) that reality.
At Feed Media Group (FMG), we have an amazing team of curators (recently highlighted here) that bring our brand partner’s soundtracks to life. But before that team can start working their magic, the music must first be acquired, packaged and cleared in a painstaking process handled by our equally talented and hard-working engineering team. This team is also responsible for wrangling the large volume of data sent by the music rightsholders on a regular basis. To be able to do this, they rely heavily on our proprietary music APIs.
