Loved by – your music neighbors

Your friends may not always share your taste in music. Luckily, plenty of folks on Hype Machine do. Our new “Loved by” feature on your Favorites page (desktop only, for now) shows people who also favorited these tracks. Chances are, you’ll like some of the other stuff they’ve been into, and discover a few new gems.

New: Good mixes

In each Stack newsletter, we share a long mix we’re enjoying that week. We’ve collected them all on our new Mixes page, for times when you just want to sit back and listen. There are artist guest mixes, radio show archives, DJ sets, and more; categorized very roughly by energy (Up, Down, Weird, like our playlists). That’s over 100 hours of uninterrupted music. Perfect for your next cross-continent drive.

Zeitgeist 2018

It’s been another year of great music, and we are proud to bring you Zeitgeist 2018!

We analyzed the posts in our index to figure out which artists made an impression this year. The feature is split into two segments: the 25 Most Posted artists of 2018, and Breakthroughs—the artists making their Zeitgeist debut.

We also brought back a classic: Zeitgeist mixes. We’ll be sharing guest mixes by some of our favorite artists, starting today with one by Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith.

For supporters, there is a playlist of 2018’s most popular tracks in the community. And, in the Reads section, a few of the long-form pieces about music we’ve featured in our weekly newsletter.

Thanks for listening with us this year.

First is a reflection from some of the people who defined the year in emerging music. We asked artists featured in our Stack newsletter for their favorite music discoveries of 2017. Their answers—songs, videos, mixes, books, experiences—are collected in the Stacks section.

The next feature is exclusively for current Hype Machine supporters: a playlist containing the most popular tracks of the year according to data from the supporter community.
