We're on mission. We've revived our efforts to introduce relatively, or entirely unknown faces to HNHH by way of a weekly dig through our Soundcloud submissions and staff-submitted music. As we did last week, we had each member of the staff bring something to table, while also filtering out the best we heard in our Soundcloud DMs. Here's the result

We've always made a conscious effort to mine for, and introduce, new and undiscovered talent to the site. Without getting into the specifics (*eye roll emoji*), as a user, you'll likely know of a particular artist that you first encountered here on the HNHH pages. With that being said, we're continuing that effort with what should be a weekly feature (assuming we don't fall off again, because, life) that spotlights our favourite staff and user-submitted tracks, following our team's music meeting. 

Here's a quick breakdown of how it works.

  • Every week, each of our staff members submits a song from an artist we've never yet (or else, ~barely ever~) posted on HNHH (so get your song into the hands of a staff member, and wow them with your musical prowess, hint hint) 
  • The song does not need to be new, in fact, most of the time, it's an older record
  • This can include music videos
  • We listen to all the submissions as a team (weekly) 
  • Each staff member votes on their top three favorite submissions out of that week's batch of submissions 
  • We cull the votes, and feature the top 3 (or 4) on the website, in a handy article like this
  • In an effort to include direct user/fan-submitted music as well, we'll be going through our Soundcloud messages and picking out the best submissions we find there, to include in our meeting each week (please send us your most fire submissions, it can be your song or someone else's). You can expect to see a tweet from our twitter and a post on our Instagram, like this one here, whenever we're going through submissions. 

Now that you have the breakdown, take a look at this week's three new artist discoveries-- we've included some basic info on each as well. As per usual, our tastes know no borders-- whether it's lofi, new-age, or old school spitting, we've got a bit of everything below. What're you digging the most, though? Vote for your own favorite among the top three selections below.
