General Discussion What music website/medium did you most identify with this year?

What music website or medium did you most identify with this year? Which website or medium yielded the most music you liked this year? It could be a record label, record store, blog, music magazine, radio station, tv station etc.

I try to look everywhere for music but I have 3 main websites that I check out:

http://thefindmag.com/
http://www.syffal.com
http://ugsmag.com/

I’ve found a large chunk of the music that I’ve enjoyed this year from those three sites but I think the one I found the most music I liked this year was from The Find. Although SYFFAL did yield album of the year for me and I found almost as much music I liked this year from SYFFAL as I did The Find.

Which website or medium yielded the most music you liked this year?

Do I even have to say..

This is the only place I really check on a regular basis. Plus, besides the QN5 roster… Blueschoolers have put me onto some really good music.

The Coli. Finally a forum to spew my thoughts on hiphop once again, after a few years without one.

ditto. thanks for Vespertina <3

Sharing new albums/artists and getting into artists that the QN5 camp has worked with has provided a good chunk of my music library. Portishead, UNKLE, Macklemore, Grieves, Blue Scholars, Vespertina, The Stuyvesants, Marcus D, Blue Sky Black Death, etc.

Mainly here

And the the UGHH forums,filled with trolls,elitists and bullshit…but they know their hip hop shit.

Wanted to up this thread for the 2013 year. To me this year SYFFAL was number one by far. The Find kind of fell off, must have changed authors or something. UGSMAG is still cool but they were always the one that yielded the least. I got up on Potholesinmyblog this year but only found a couple releases from there that I liked.

Edit: Thefindmag mentioned Built To Fade

Dope.

How about you?

The Hype Machine has led me to many blogs

Thank all of you awesome people for this.

So like last year I want to up this thread because I think it’s important to know where we’re finding music. This year a new website shined: the Australian music website Tonedeaf. I was introduced to a good number of new artists and releases that I liked this year.

Hype Machine also introduced me to a few artists and releases this year.

Syffal still remains number 1 for me. I found out about a lot of the releases I mentioned in the 2014 music thread from there.

UGSmag comes next but hardly anything from there this year.

Thefindmag is pretty much dead to me, nothing from there this year.

A lot of the music that I liked this year came from artists that I had already been familiar with the previous year or years earlier.

That’s where my favorites came from, yours?

Hype machine and this website.

How do you have the time to listen to so much music/read so much about music?

I basically live on http://www.RawDrive.com and http://www.potholesinmyblog.com

I sometimes check 2DopeBoys - but the majority of music they post is trash.
