et hop! some pointers

December 10, 2007

time to point you in the direction of some music – since i haven’t posted that much hip hop to listen to (yet).

if you want some more oldschool hip hop:

rho-xs is posting quite some gems – as an introduction you might go here.

then music-hole, a, hm, eclectic music blog, posted not too long ago some grandmaster flash, public enemy (at the mazzo, amsterdam!) and the last show of a tribe called quest. get it here.

and now let’s go to the blogs that focus on hip hop. of course there must be zillions of hip hop sites on the net – i picked out the two i read regularly – these are the two music blogs i would like to recommend:

leave your nine at home: blog of a very knowledgeable hip hop-lover. all kinds of hip hop in many languages – american, english, french, spanish, swiss, and beyond. yeah, a lot to listen to and a lot to learn… very nice!

urbanbology: finally i can give you a pointer to this excellent blog (although it’s on my blogroll for quite a while). not a “pure” hip hop blog – as it states. open minded. this is also shown in the awareness that music does have social and political aspects. you guessed it right: it is this kind of mixture that attracts me very much. yeah, it’s a bit annoying because it is another one of these blogs where i have the feeling i have to listen to more or less everything that gets posted. well, i have to admit that i love it. yep, one of my favourites. much respect! and should you still not get it: highly recommended!

actualité – happy birthday

a birthday to celebrate! the music blog rho-x celebrates one year of blogging and sharing music. interesting music. and embedded in text. and the avid reader knows that i do like and appreciate that highly. the posts (and therefore the music) are sorted by topic, for example presenting music by country, or as in his actual post, music that heals. which sound might funny at first, but is actually one of the old and primary uses of music. definitly something to be aware of and something to think about.

but right now i recommend you head over to rho-x and have a read / listen yourself! and i am sure you will find a lot of interesting and inspiring music. and don’t forget to bring a birthday cake!
