I’ve been making use of a couple nontraditional methods to find new music. Blogs and friends’ recommendations aren’t cutting it anymore. First, the MusicOne app for iPhones is pretty fabulous. Streams never-ending pop/dance/trance/circuit tunes fit for a true QUEEN. If that’s your kind of music…100% recommended.
The other resource: podcasts! I’ve never regularly followed them, but a friend recommended DJ Grind to me, and I’m so happy he did. Once a month, Mr. Grind releases an hour-long podcast of songs similar to what is played on MusicOne. The podcasts come with a track listing, so you’re not clueless to what you’re putting in your ears. Definitely have uncovered several gems since I began following.
Here is my early summer playlist (it’s already hot here!). I hope there are some new things on here that you haven’t yet enjoyed…
