Hey friends, In this week’s edition we share some of our favorite online and offline crushes. And we tell you about new Qleek designs to save your most memorable pics and songs. The Hives are back in stock and we show you how easy it is to make a birthday Qleek for a friend.
Hey Qleekers. We’ve been silent for a few months working hard on new features and making Qleek better for you. We’ve got some exciting news to share and as always a selection of our favorite songs, objects and videos to enjoy and remember this summer!
Music is the soundtrack of our lives. It marks important moments, places and people in our lives that ultimately make us who we are.
We all remember when that special person gave us a record or a mixtape. The way we obsessively listened to it over and over again, the way we analyzed the artwork, and studied the handwritten note. And that feeling when 10 years later we found the same tape and relived that moment as if it was yesterday. This is the power of music.
At Qleek, we think this is a crucial part of the music experience…
Another exciting year has just opened its doors. Qleek has grown from an idea to a product in 2016. Thanks to our ever-supportive circle of backers, artists, craftsmen, and most importantly, our enthusiastic customers.
Johanna, Pierre and Ismail (the trio behind Qleek) would like to thank you all for joining us in our continuing quest for simplicity, design and function. Our focus next year will be to improve Qleek in every possible way, to provide more quality content to chose from and way more. Stay tuned for many great things to come in 2017.
Cheers to an exciting new year.

Bonjour friends. The theme of this Qleek biweekly is about mindful making. We took great care selecting the best songs for the Fortnight Hour this week. Johanna has received her beautiful leather bag from Sébastien Cordoleani. He pays great attention to details and gives a modern twist to traditional craftsmanship. And we finish with a great interview of the master Werner Herzog about technology, cinema and breaking the rules.
This is part 3 of a series that discusses the value of music in the age of streaming and how the industry can leverage online music beyond ads and the 9.99 model.
It is compelling to think of streaming as the killer of physical records. After all, the market seems to be indicating so, the printing press has known a similar fate and our daily music experience happens mainly on the phone far from CDs and such.
Streaming is killing the record because the record never embraced streaming.
The record as we know it has to embrace our current ways…
You are the Music you love
