As music bloggers we are always on the lookout for new and exciting ways of finding and sharing our passion for new music – that’s why we’ve always been quick to join services like the Hype Machine, Shuffler.fm, 22tracks, and now we’ve got another to add to that list – Beatclash.
Beatclash sets itself apart from other curated music services by focusing on video and with a commitment to the “new” where anything older than 400 days old is dropped from the service.
Guest contributing curators including Sean Michaels (Said the Gramophone), Tiffany Daniels (Drunken Werewolf), Andy Von Pip (Von Pip Musical Express), and yours truly are on hand to pick some of the finest music videos around, but users can also sort through the videos by city (London, New York, Paris, or Berlin).
A Beatclash algorithm also works out the “hotness” of each video from data from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, and Google+, and users can “discover the real hype” with a video playlist of the hottest new videos of the moment.
If you like/heart a video then it will be added to your personal playlist, and if your favourite new music video is not yet available on Beatclash then a swift message to the team will get it added.
