5Beat relies on four interactive content such as streaming music videos, photo galleries, streaming music, and aggregating Instagram musician account content. With no need to register, site visitors can easily access these four content. All content presented is not related to business interests as is done by the streaming music platform, such as royalty obligations and cooperation with parties such as labels or similar publishers. In order not to “clash” with these interests, all of the contents of 5Beat are user generated content, where all content can be freely arranged and filled by users. To maintain quality, any content uploaded to it will be cured by 5Beat before it can finally be published. In its music streaming feature, 5Beat relies on the SoundCloud API platform which also has the same nature of content, as well as the music video content presented also taken from the YouTube platform.
If this is the case then where is the location interesting 5 cheat? For listeners of music in general, at this time it feels very adequate with the presence of music streaming platforms such as Deezer, Guvera, Rdio, etc. which provide alternative options to listen to the strains of thousands of songs from various artists around the world online. Meanwhile, to watch the music video of his favorite artist, the YouTube platform itself is very perfect and complete until finally it is now a mainstay platform for finding new music.
So far, it has been like just repeating and repacking what is already in the minds of users to consume music in the online domain, and of course it might not be an attraction for cheaters. It is really unfortunate, even though the concept of 5Beat itself as outlined on its blog page, was once prepared as an independent music portal to maintain their existence in this digital era. This concept is planned to carry merchandise sales and other promotional items from local artists as a form of support for independent music industry. Items to sell such as fashion accessories, posters, CDs, VHS, merchandise, nick-nacks, and concert tickets. Either it is still in further development or not, if 5Beat continues to carry the packaging as it is today, then the possibility of 5Beat to be able to go further will be very minimal. There are still many innovation opportunities that can be done by cheat to become digital products that focus on music content.
