Trackstack is the app that brings crate digging to your pocket

Flippin' great.
Flippin' great.

Remember when flicking through vinyl in your local record shop was a thing? Well, it's back and it's even better (possibly), because now you can do it on your phone.

Trackstack has brought back crate digging for iOS with a new app that can access store collections and bring them right to your fingertips.

Currently only set up with access to Beatport (more outlets are on the way), Trackstack will enable you to filter down selections from your favourite retailers to find the tracks you want with ease, leaving you to create your own collections and customised Stacks to help you build your next set, mix or broadcast.

The app is available now on the App store for free. For more information, head on over to the Trackstack website.

I take care of the reviews on MusicRadar and Future Music magazine, though can sometimes be spotted in front of a camera talking little sense in the presence of real musicians. For the past 30 years, I have been unable to decide on which instrument to master, so haven't bothered. Currently, a lover of all things high-gain in the guitar stakes and never one to resist churning out sub-standard funky breaks, the likes of which you'll never hear.
