Those Taiwanese animators don’t miss a meme, do they? Next Media Animation has a short segment on Turntable.fm (perhaps the first Next Media animation of something that is already an animation?), giving a brief explainer of the service, throwing in a unicorn and some Justin Bieber, and comparing the service to Spotify.

The script:

Listening to music at home with friends has long been popular. Now Americans have a better place to do it: Turntable.fm

Turntable.fm allows people to DJ in chat rooms. Users score each other on their song choices.

The site is currently invite-only and is a hangout for ‘cool kids”, it’s perfect for music snobs.

But Turntable.fm isn’t just an Internet fad, high profile investors are pouring money into it.

Will Turntable.fm crash Spotify’s party?

This is a high honor and we’re not sure any New York start-up has received it before (commenters: let us know if we’re wrong). Hey Turntable–you guys gotta slow down!
