Listen + Clios: Another One

Call Khaled because we got another one. We’re thrilled to share that Listen has nabbed a Bronze Clio Entertainment Award for our original game created with Microsoft and M83, Meet Me At Go!

The game draws on vintage ’80s arcade styling, and is optimized for touch screens (like the Microsoft Surface). We were inspired by M83 frontman Anthony Gonzalez’s love of gaming to create this retro race game, which was released in place of a music video alongside an 8-bit remix (which we also composed) for his hit song, “Go!.” Play the game here, or read more about the collaboration here.

Listen Heads to Amsterdam for ADE

Calling all electronic-music fans! Listen is heading to Amsterdam for the sprawling Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE), which consumes the city October 18-22 with a mix of club nights, industry workshops and panels, and intimate performances from major artists. In between all-night ragers and carefully curated DJ sets, Listen co-founder Steve Milton and Microsoft Director of Strategic Partnerships Amy Sorokas will be sharing the latest from our Music x Technology program.

Part of the Dance & Brands ADE conference programming, our panel discussion, What Every Artist Needs To Know: Game Changing Technology, will take attendees through recent collaborations with Alison Wonderland, Childish Gambino, M83, and more, highlighting the customized Microsoft technology that took their live performances and music videos to another level. If you’re in town, join us on Friday, October 20 (12-1pm). Then, jet lag permitting, find us front row for EDM wunderkind Martin Garrix.
