Song finding methods
Alright, I spend plenty of time on the web searching for songs, but im mostly frusterated by the results. The method I use is to type a song that i like into google, and look for forums, reviews, reviewers etc. that will hopefully lead me to more music. Unfortunately the stuff usually sucks. I find rap and techno to be particularly difficult considering the majority of listeners for rap like ghetto/gangsta and techno listeners.....have no clue. So I hope that by registering for this forum (which is active.. woot!) I will find some people that have good ways of finding songs (and don't wanna buy thousands of dollars worth on iTunes..
Here are some of the songs I find amazing, if you like these, I'd love some reccomendations or some ways you find music too. And if you don't like it, please save negative comments for another thread.
Royksopp - What else is there (thin white duke remix)
The Killers - Read my Mind (Pet shop boys remix)
DJ Taucher - End of Time
The Chemical Brothers - The Golden Path
Eric Pyrdz - Call on me
Outkast - 13th floor/growing old
AZ - This is what I do
Beanie Sigel - Remember them Dayz
blahh i'll stop considering this is an electronic thread
So im not exactly looking to dance. These songs are smooth, kinda poppy...but have tight beats and a deep composition rather than the short/repetitive BS that seems acceptable these days. (except call on me which is repetitive.. but come on... have you seen that video??)
So let me know what you think,
I wish I could play little league now. I'd be way better than before.

Try this guys site for some really good mixes.

Also get Limewire and in the search field just enter breakbeat or house etc. A lot of mixes come through-then find tracks of them and the whole thing snowballs(we hope)

i am currently developing a software system to satisfy exactly what you are talking about. its complicated but it uses other peoples taste to suggest new music to you. anyhow until that is available, my suggestion to you is this. allmusic is the best compiled database for music i have found. they have links on just about everything on there. so you can type in an artist and get when they were active, music style, discography, biography, band members, similar artist, influencing artist, followers, etc etc. everything is linked and if even has some of the smallest bands you know. check it out
