Turn me up, Plug In, LoudUp rating...here's the breakdown:
- Every artist, producer, and musician on the site has a LoudUp rating which is a score in decibels (dB). We're all about loudness here so the louder an artist is, the more highly they have been rated. The 'turn me up' button that you will see around the site enables you to increase the loudness of a song or video, and that in turn increases the loudness of the artist.
- Plugging into someone means that you will see their updates on your Notifications page. You will be notified for events such as if they add new songs and videos, announce a new gig, or if they turn up a song or video. You will be able to see who you are plugged into and who is plugged into you on your profile page.
