One day while expressing my frustration regarding downloading music and finding new artists to listen to an in-the-know friend of mine recommended a website to me, The Hype Machine- http://hypem.com/. Initially skeptical due to previous negative experiences related to online music sharing, I was hesitant to check out his recommendation. Once I did though, I was pleasantly surprised by the results. The Hype Machine is unlike other music site I have ever been to. It is a website that follows the music blogs and in which you can search and listen to posted MP3’s of different artists. Aside from simply searching the artisits you are interested in the website also lists the current most blogged artists, the most popular blogs and gives you search advice.
Since learning about this website I find myself frequenting it more and more, not only for the artists I am interested in finding, but also for new recommendations I had never heard before and simply for reading the discussions people post and what they have to say about the current music scene. This website is a great tool for anyone who is interested in music or finding new artists or remixes out there and if you are at all interested I suggest you check it out because yes, all the hype is true.
