New music discovered via SoundCloud

A massive library of newcomers and secret tips. The huge selection that SoundCloud has to offer is fascinating and can be a little overwhelming. It’s a rare thing to see well-known pop songs from the charts, which can make finding the right music a little hard. However, you do have multiple options to find songs you like:

  • The music pieces are sorted by genre – and big help, when discovering new music
  • Playlists  are a great place to start – for example one contains all the currently most loved tracks on SoundCloud, the perfect way in.
  • For every piece of music SoundCloud suggests similar titles
  • If you rate the music you listen to, you will receive even better suggestion that fit your taste

So if you’re getting fed up of the constant drool of similar sound music on the radio, then SoundCloud could be the thing you’re looking for. It’s the perfect place to discover new music and artist. However, if you do love the biggest hits in the charts, you could miss them when using SoundCloud. In the paid SoundCloud Go+ you will find a few licensed pieces of music, however this is just a small part of what they offer. In this case, SoundCloud can’t contend with the renowned Spotify or Deezer.
