YouTube Gold # 1
With these new playlists we intend to select the best new music, that we find on Youtube. Especially the “new” music channels, such as “Majestic” & “TSYN” and so on, which paved the way for a whole new breed of music presentation on YT, not consumption. Music has always been heard, searched for and uploaded to youtube, more than any other place on the webs, but these channels took a tumblresque look and blogging approach to new music especially remixes, to stay out of legal troubles, or even get their channels deleted. Instead of just focusing on the sound, like most blogs, it was equally about the visuals with an audience already 100% conditioned on images rather than reading or even scanning. You have almost seen all of the images before and associationwise that was a major bonus. All pics were dreamy, sexy, romantic, arty, fashionable in combination with beautiful nature, summer or sunshine tumblr moods and got paired with (mostly) cutting edge music to make it click.
It’s actually the same thing as blogging used to be, back when it all began, before social media was even a word, before it all exploded and transformed into a circus of tens of thousands of music critics (aka formerly known as passionate bloggers). I remember when we all started, it was from the heart and i still believe that’s where your content needs to be, where it needs to derive from and where it needs to go… Don’t be a robo! Be passionate about your work!
Back to the YouTube channels: These new channels search the blogosphere, artists fb pages, their soundclouds and other channels so that you don’t have to, and they copy + paste from each other just like the bloggers usually do and so on. We are gonna filter their latest music so you don’t have to. Pack it all up in a handselected playlist to give you a current roundup of their best new featured tracks. So YOU ONLY HAVE TO PUSH PLAY ONCE! OY, these are the best new tracks on their channels from this still very young, new year.
