Hypebot has always been about the business of music. But in this new series, How I Listen, we're asking industry leaders and artists to share how they discover and consume music, along with what they are listening to. First up: David Dufresne, the CEO of music web site and marketing platform Bandzoogle.

1) What device(s) do you use to listen to music?

iPhone, iPod Nano in the car, a Yamaha receiver and a pair of Goodmans speakers that are older than I am. I also use an old Telefunken turntable, a Logitech Squeezebox Radio, and a Jawbone Jambox for when I work in the backyard. Headphones are Grado Labs SR125 and Bowers & Wilkins P5. Computer speakers are Bowers & Wilkins MM-1. Recently I've been using the iPhone over Airplay a lot.

2) What streaming music service(s) do you use most often?

I sometimes use Rdio and Spotify, but mostly I listen to my own mp3s through a Subsonic server I have installed on my home PC, and the iSub app. Kind of my own private streaming service. Curation is amazing ;)

3) Besides recommendations from friends, how do you discover new music?

Lately I've been discovering tons of new music when I travel to conferences and festivals. There's also a good number of Bandzoogle customers that I have become a fan of.

4) What new music are you listening to most this week?

I think Valerie June is going to be huge. Her album is excellent. Also on heavy rotation: Milk Carton Kids, Bibio, the new Mudhoney album, Odezenne (French hip hop), Junip, Man Or Astro-Man? (surf rock from space) and the Rebirth Brass Band.

5) Shameless Plug: What are you promoting/launching/planning that you want to share.

We are in the process of migrating all of users to the Bandzoogle 2.0 and we have a full roadmap of new features we are going to launch over the summer. We're soon also going to announce an acquisition that we recently completed, and that will be a new product for us.
