YouTube has everything. EVERYTHING. Even some obscure dubplate my 16 year old self thought I had the only copy of. But in a UI optimised for video rather than music consumption
the more excited I am by new artists (e.g. right now Swag Rap), the more time I spend on Soundcloud/Bandcamp/DatPiff/Mixcloud. When there’s no new scene I’m into I retreat into catalogue on Spotify.
I spend a lot of my listening time in Rdio and MOG. That conversation motivated me to do more pure music listening on YouTube, so I have been creating YouTube playlists for music listening.
