- I Tried EDM Dating App Mix'd for Two Weeks: Here's What Happened
During the insanity that was Miami Music Week, there was a single group that stood out against the others, Radiate.
My mind was blown and I knew I had to share their vision. On top of this, Radiate are masters of the tech side. This allows dance fans to have a place to share their best moments at events with their friends and others no matter what. About a year ago, Phil was running refFinder, a site to hire fencing referees, and I was working at Google as an engineer, but also working insanely hard to build my own app after hours called Ubble. He had an idea for a dating app for festivals, named Oxytocin.

I loved the idea and we started working on it together. After much deliberation I turned the entire codebase of Ubble into this early version of Radiate, and the first iteration of Radiate was born. It was the day Michael took the forums he created in Ubble and decided to plant them in Radiate. It was a lot of fun — we kept throwing names out and seeing what stuck. You can make someone happy by being happy yourself.

Philip Haha ok, this is a good question. Michael Holy Ship January was the event that made me quit my day-job at Google and work fulltime on Radiate. Not only was it my first true festival experience, but it was the first time I saw how much people loved the app, and how useful it was.
When people actually thanked me for making Radiate, I felt this immense proudness, that made me really realize that I was doing the right thing with my life. Many festival goers hope to find love or good friends at one of few locations where they have a common connections with others — electronic music festivals!
Michael Basically we look up to anything that can foster a strong, connected community.
Whether it be a facebook group, or an event itself. Philip Yep, but to give credit to the folks who start the groups and run them like Mama and Papa B from Holy Ship, are the people who I aspire to be like. They create these groups just like we did for the community not just themselves.
