About this playlist
The hoof has done the hard digging for you so why not enjoy the fruits of his labour with the ‘Hot 20’ playlist, a small selection his efforts, updated weekly and collated to form the ‘Hot 2021 from 2021’ playlist at the end of the year, this is shared first with the kind folk who support him on Patreon in the new year.
The hoof is always on the search for new music, every week he has well over 300 submissions sent to Musicto, Submithub and Groover, emails from record company’s and PR folks and the dreaded spam sent to his PM’s, yet he is still on the hunt for more tunes.
He is stubborn enough to want to do things the old fashioned way, so it’s back to basics, searching through magazines, mainly online ones, blogs and websites, like Le Visiteur, Monkeyboxing, Music is my Sanctuary, Test Pressing, Five Mag, Faith, 45 Live, The Vinyl Factory, Wax Poetics and many many more.
He’s not so stuck in his ways that he doesn’t utilise modern tech, but he let’s the algorithms on Spotify work for him, not the other way round, the key to this is the release radar playlist, follow artists and play lots of music as the algorithm uses that data, he follows close to 3000 artists, between submissions and recommendations, you’re talking now in the 1000’s of tracks to listen to each week, he hates missing out on anything as you can see he’s putting the work in to find you the hottest new music.
