The Beatradar (yeah, one word) is a newly established electronica label, Spotify playlister and music blog. We are proud to say we’ve recently been added as a source for the “Hype Machine“, an popular metasite that index good music blogs and helps you find the best new music first. You find a link to track submission at the end of this page.
The blog and playlists will focus on what goes on below the mainstream flow. “Underground” is a wide term, but that means we are not looking for the “massive drops” or “bangers”. In fact we can’t stand it. So cheesy. There. We said it.
The artists featured on our blog will predominantly be acts that can be considered “undiscovered”, based on their social media following. Exciting, isn’t it? You know who the big guns are anyways, you don’t need us for that.
We seek tracks that within each their styles provide something a little bit different. Or simply just do what it does exceptionally well. as long as it’s off the mainstream we’re all ears. Our focus is on Spotify presence, but it’s not a requirement. You’ll miss out on our playlists, though.
Will we cover our own releases? With us also being a label one might easily suspect that we just do this to promote our own releases.
The answer is “yes, we most likely will”. Since we only exclusively sign artists who we can stand 100% behind, their stuff is good stuff. But! We will always very clearly state a disclaimer right at the beginning of the post if that track is released on our label. If we say nothing, it’s not.
Who’s writing? As of now this blog is a single man mission with me, Espen K.M. aka Atroxity behind the wheels! My background includes being editor-in-chief for the main clubbing site in Norway for more than a decade. I’ve also worked as a DJ since the turn of the century, and a radio jockey for contemporary radio stations since around 1990.
Yeah. I’ve been around for a while.
