It’s no secret that one of the subjects that people of all ages like to discuss with each other is music. I’m sure that you and your friends at least occasionally talk about what music you’ve been listening to and what you like in particular, but if you really want to expand your musical horizons, then it only makes sense to get connected with more people that have song and artist suggestions that you might dig. In this day and age, it seems like one of the best ways to figure out what’s popular and what’s not is to turn to the blogosphere and see what people are saying about any given topic. Sure enough, there are plenty of active bloggers discussing music at any given moment, and The Hype Machine helps you to filter through these discussions.

Not only does the service track these discussions, but it lets you listen to and get a taste of the music that’s being linked to. If you like what you hear, then you can support the artist by purchasing their music, and The Hype Machine makes this easy by linking you to a number of electronic music downloading services. You can also search for a specific artist or track that you want some more information on. Welcome to the next generation of radio.
