The Brief

Xilent is one of Drum & Bass' heroes (or a DJ superstar to those not musically aligned). Management saw fit that he had a showcase website to promote his new releases alongside gig dates and the latest media (songs, videos and photos).

The Solution

Using Xilent's press pack and existing album artwork we created a custom designed website to sit neatly in his musical genre. A 'dirty' Drum & Bass site was born. The custom front-end design sits atop a WordPress back-end. It features an events section and several hand-coded media related plugins.

The Result

Using the SoundCloud API isn't easy at the best of times, let alone marrying it with the WordPress back-end. Luckily we have some whiz kids in the technical department here and were able to deliver a seamless integration of the SoundCloud service to the site allowing it to automatically update with Xilent's latest tracks.

We implemented a live Twitter & Facebook feed alongside the ability for mangement to quickly add new tracks and/or tour dates.

Making the Soundcloud API work for us

Linking a dynamically updating music feed isn't as easy as it might seem. We custom coded a workaround which enabled us to stream Soundcloud's great services directly to Xilent's site.

Design Created for Responsive Use with Social Media

Alongside Soundcloud we used APIs from YouTube, Facebook & Twitter to make sure the site was up to date 24/7.
