Spotify, the steaming service that’s by FAR my favourite piece of software of 2008, is currently invite-only and limited to UK, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Spain and France. However, there’s a sneaky way of getting in anyway, that TechCrunch spotted in a Digg comment.
It’s pretty simple. Visit a proxy site, like DaveProxy, and from there, go to this URL. Sign up with a UK postcode (how about the BBC’s postcode: W12 7RJ), and you’re all set. The best on-demand digital music service out there is yours. Try it out, and share a playlist in the comments below. I’ll start you off with my Best of 2008.
Oh, and if you have problems with accessing the site after 14 days, then FileShareFreak’s got you sorted out. More proxy fun.
