There are a couple of threads here listing specific music recommendations (monthly thread, jazz box sets, etc.), but how about pointers to music discovery sites and sources, where do you learn about new music? (sort of like the internet radio swap thread).
In the default mode, whatever Genre you pick starts playing a representative song.
Select Scan and it starts jumping around the screen randomly playing 10 secs of random genres.
List makes a vertical list so more manageable. In List, if you click on a Genre you get an embedded Spotify playlist that you can start playing with. Then there are a bunch of filters at the top that tune how it builds playlists based on the selected Genre.
I haven’t used it a lot, but wondering what Turkish Hip Hop is or Deep German Jazz is!!
in former days there was an iPhone app called “discovr music”: you could enter an artist and it showed similiar artists … I discovered lots of good music by this way … unfortunately it has been discontinued … so far didn’t find somthing equal …
David Byrne of talking heads fame has an internet radio (which is Mixcloud). I haven’t explored much yet, but think it is mostly Mixcloud playlists of interesting/new/discovered music. He has a new book “How Music Works” which I downloaded to Kindle but haven’t started reading yet.
I’ve been working on a platform for discovery. It is still young, but the idea is to put all sources in one easy-to-reach location. You can search tags and all that stuff. Open to feature suggestions and development help. I’m also going to take a look into these sites you’ve posted.
It’s called Krado … the Esperanto word for “Crate”. Was going to virtual crate digging.
It’s early in the day, so first impressions, IMPRESSED. The layout is particularly clear and response time when clicking links very fast. I found a new “liked album” within a few seconds, I need to use it some more
