Explore Music Blogs
One of the best ways to discover new music is by following music blogs. These blogs often feature new and emerging artists and offer a glimpse into the latest trends in music. Some of the most popular music blogs include Pitchfork, Stereogum and Consequence of Sound.
You can also look for blogs that specialize in a particular genre or sub-genre of music. For example, if you're interested in discovering new indie music, you can check out Indie Shuffle, Gorilla vs. Bear, or DIY Magazine.
Use Music Streaming Services
Music streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Tidal offer a vast library of music, and they also have features that help you discover new music. One way to find new music is by exploring the platform's curated playlists. Spotify, for example, has a wide range of playlists curated by music experts and artists that can help you discover new genres and artists.
Another way to discover new music on streaming services is by exploring the "related artists" section. This section lists artists who are similar to the artist you're currently listening to, which can help you discover new genres and sub-genres of music.
Attend Local Music Events
Attending local music events such as concerts, music festivals, and open mic nights can also be a great way to discover new music. These events often feature local artists who may not have gained widespread recognition yet but have a unique and distinct sound which can inspire you to find instrumental music in that same category you could use for your playlists. You may also find that many of these artists are experimenting with new genres and sub-genres, providing an opportunity to discover undiscovered music which can help you give an edge!
Join Music Communities
Joining online music communities can also be a great way to discover new music. These communities, such as Reddit's r/listentothis, focus on sharing and discussing new and emerging artists. You can also join communities on social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter that are dedicated to specific genres or sub-genres of music.
Explore Different Regions
Another way to discover new genres of music is by exploring different regions. Music is deeply rooted in culture, and different regions often have their own unique sounds and styles. For example, exploring African music can lead you to discover genres such as afrobeat, highlife, and juju. Similarly, exploring Latin American music can lead you to discover genres such as salsa, bachata, and reggaeton. Dropsteaming knows no boundaries or rules, and anything goes! Just hit up a producer in that genre and collaborate with them to make the both of you successful!
Listen to Radio Shows and Podcasts
Radio shows and podcasts are also a great way to discover new music. Many radio shows feature new and emerging artists, and some are dedicated to specific genres or sub-genres of music. Similarly, there are podcasts that focus on music discovery, such as NPR's All Songs Considered and KEXP's Music That Matters.
