BEST NEW MUSIC
House Music, Techno, Deep House, Indie, Hip-Hop, Pop, Alternative
Where can I find the latest and best new music? A question we’re asking ourselves most days when writing this blog or preparing for an upcoming DJ set. As new music enthusiasts the honest answer is – not very easily. Back in the day you could depend on your local record store, your favourite music mag or perhaps John Peel on Radio 1. However the digital revolution has meant that your options are more bewildering than choosing a TV channel, holiday destination, or even where to have a Flat White. If you even know what a Flat White is… A question for a different blog. Anyway, we digress, so whats the solution?
Well in theory the solution is hopefully a New Music blog like ‘Blah Blah Blah’. Us, like many of our peers, ‘Pitchfork‘, ‘The Line of Best Fit‘, ‘Consequence of Sound‘, ‘Fact Mag‘, ‘Resident Advisor‘, the list is endless, aim to discover and share the latest and greatest new Indie, House Music, Techno, Hip-Hop, Alternative etc. However like these, our opinions are our own, so really it comes down to what you’re looking for. Yes online magazines such as Pitchfork can greatly influence public opinion on what is good and what is not, but ultimately it should simply come down to wether you like the music or not. That said, some minds are more progressive than others, take the legend that is John Peel who broke countless bands, bands that defied the natural order of what was popular. And it’s this x-factor that someone like ourselves is striving to emulate. Whether we manage or not is open for debate, but one thing we can guarantee, is that if we’ve talked about it, then we’re listening to it.
Below you’ll find 8 images, that with one simple click will whisk you away to our most recent discoveries & recommendations, for that particular genre. However it’s worth noting that these categories are intentionally broad, otherwise there would be 100’s of images to wade through. Therefore House Music covers everything from house to tech-house, indie includes rock, Hip-Hop Rap and so on. Happy digging…
So, thats it. Hopefully Blah Blah Blah has gone someway to meeting your new music needs. Admittedly with a sole author, me, it’s unlikely that we’ve got everything covered. So be sure to create your own portfolio of music discovery resources. And if you’ve got the time, or the inclination, we’d love to hear your music discovery recommendations. Moreover let us know what records you think we should be covering…no PR spam please. And if you’re a budding music journalist in waiting, get in touch, we’re always on the look out for talented new writers.
