Yeah! Another African music blog, loving it! Check out Outorogod. "Oro is invisible. He is only audible by the rhomb's sound. Oro is a musical Voodoo". There is a lot to see and listen to on this blog: traditional music, voodoo (check out the compilations), African rock, African Jazz and even some soul. The music comes from Niger, Benin, Ghana among other African countries. This is good news for the fans (of which I am one)!

Melomanoamable does not only Electronic music however, you will also find here: experimental sound, a bit of Arabic music, Flamenco, Rumba, Spanish Hip Hop etc. Most of the music is of Spanish origin. Updates are on an irregular basis and come together with a short Spanish description (sometimes with a video) to the album discussed. Although the blog is relatively new, it is worth checking out.

Mckinon has been nagging me for weeks now to add his blog here. Normally, I really detest people that spam me and give them accordingly and appropriately an instant ban. However his El Hombre Infinito 8 is not all that bad. Mckinon provides you with mostly homemade podcasts (from Radiohead to The Beatles and beyond) on his not so frequently updated blog. Although there are not a lot of posts as of yet, it is definitely still worth a glimpse.
LA Friendly is a pretty new English/ French blog which brings you cool music for cool people. Expect heavy electro sounds, liquid acid trips, revibed hiphop mixes, new wave electronic among other delicacies. Posts are dropped on a frequent, daily basis. This blog has potential and I am sure it will even only get better. Enjoy, cos this stuff is well recommended!

Miscreant Productions (love the logo) is a very interesting early electro/ booty blog. A good selection of electro sounds, sample sources and Miami bass rhythms provides the visitor enough to listen to on this now officially classic electro and booty music blog. Although, recently the posts have come in smaller numbers, Miscreant Productions still is an essential place for people with a love for the nostalgic, early days of urban street noise. I am sure there is enough stuff (beyond only music) here to keep you busy for a while. A true recommendation, they rock!

AusPopMix provides you with a growing collection of 80's pop and rock (INXS, Breakfast Club etc). The blog is yet brand new and the amount of posts is thus still limited. Nevertheless, it looks as if this blog could be well worth a bookmark for future reference.

House Music @ 18 BPM delivers well... House music at 128 beat per minute, of course! Posts are dropped on a daily basis and consist of sub genres such as Progressive House, Techno House, Electro House among other things. Although the blog is relatively new ( the author commenced in August this year), everything seems in place to make this place worth visiting. Enjoy.
OG Latansa is specialised in both contemporary Arab music and more traditional music from the Middle East. A fine niche blog which usefully categorises its assortment of posts in the labels: Video Clips (50 posts), Male Voice (44 posts), Female Voice (38 posts) and Top Arabic Mp3s of 2008 (37 posts). Posts come regularly (sometimes 3 a day) and are of good quality. In other words, a well-recommended blog for the fans of world music and unmissable for the lovers of Arab music! Good job, guys!

The Jackboyz is a kool looking Hip Hop blog complete with albums and music videos. The Jackboyz have their base in the US HH scene and promise to deliver you daily updates. Expect names such as DJ Muggs, Nas, DJ Quick, DJ Premier, Talib Kweli among many new and older US HH legends. Definitely not a bad place to hang around a bit. Keep it up guys.
Radio Rommeltje can, judging by its name, only be a Dutch blog. Am I right or am I right? Well, it might also be Flemish. Anyways, Radio Rommeltje is a relatively new blog which provides you with mostly popular music from the 80s, 90s and today. Expect albums from Whitney Houston, Avril Lavigne, The Pet Shop Boys and some Euro things. It still looks a bit uncertain which direction this blog will take, but the beginning is made.
R-T-C (no, I have no idea what that stands for) is a very good blog which does Rock, Pop (43 posts), Indie (95 posts), Electronica (70), Metal (43), Acoustic (27) and Rock (90) among many other genres (Dance, Hip Hop , New Wave etc). This multi-disciplinary blog knows its stuff well and provided you with both quality albums and entire discographies. I have seen everything from Roots Manuva to Limb Bizkit and from Shitdisco to Tool. The contents loads easy and the music is plenty (updates are at least daily and up to 100 posts a month). Very convincing good stuff, no doubt. Still, I would love to know what R-T-C stands for! Anybody?
Rio Groove FM is Brazilian, hot and... groovy. Tito Puente (Latin Jazz), Jimmy Castor (Disco Funk), Raul Mascarenhas (Brazilian Jazz), Brooklyn Funk Essentials (of course!), you will all find them at Rio Groove FM. Posts are updated daily together with a short review in Portuguese. A good place also to grow love for the latin groove. Enjoy.
Kucsimuka is a pretty straight forward blog where you are able to download fine Blues, Jazz & Pop and Rock music. A nice feature is that the links are provided through anonymz. The posts are both in English and in Hungarian and updated every two to three days or so. The selection is good and diverse. Well recommended.
Fire Drills is a relatively new blog which provides reviews and publishes single MP3s. The reviews are short and concise and give you a good understanding of what to expect from the music under discussion. Expect reviews from Moondoggies (Rock), The Features (Psych. Rock), Greg Laswell (Indie Rock) and Night Marchers (Punk Rock). Useful blog for information on lesser known rock/ indie bands.

Doctor Mario is a Spanish, Catalan Blog which provides you with music commentaries from different epochs. I find it difficult to catagorise this blog, but expect a wide range of different music genres ranging from The Deadly Snakes (Indie Rock), Tom Waites, The Staple Singers (Gospel) to Alex Chilton (known from his work with Box Tops and Big Star). The blog is updated twice to thrice a month or so. For those whose Spanish is better than mine this blog must be welcomed.
Scott Gill is a somewhat difficult blog at first, but once you get the hang out of it, it all becomes clear and pretty straight-forward. This link generating blog is organised alphabetically by the name of the band, artist or DJ you are looking for. As soon as you found what you were looking for, the link will take you to Gill Scott's Wiki Site (master site categorsised by music band is to be found here), where you are able to find a great amount of third links to albums of the music you were initially looking for. Still difficult? Go ahead an try it out yourself, thus stuff is well recommended!

Retro Universe is well a... 80s blog of course! The site is regularly (daily) updated and features a whole range of quality music. For the 80s generation names such as Julien Lennon (the son of), Eruption (I can't stand the Rain), Rupert Holmes (escape) and Smithereens (recommended stuff) must sound familiar. A well recommended blog for the fans and a great job the blog's contributor has already done and is doing. My thanks to him!
Ultra8201 is an Austin (Texas, US) based blog which provides you with "tour dates, (single) MP3s, concert pictures and (music) videos".

The two contributors to a good job in keeping the blog interesting and update their site at least every two to three days. Thanks guys, keep it up!
Hidden Track is a professional looking blog which has the "great vision to cover anything having to do with music" (paraphrased). The blog is related to Glide Magazine, an online mag which provides you with reviews, single MP3 downloads, columns etc. Hidden Track is a nice daily updated blog which gives you everything from the latest on Alice Cooper, links to Mp3s to remixes and concert reviews. Schedule some time to visit this one, because there is a lot to be seen here. A blog to be enjoyed!

Finally for today then there is Moustacheland. A fine name for a blog with a range of House DJ Remixes and Bootlegs. Besides some albums and single MP3s (25 posts), expect a lot of videos (38 posts in total). A blog worth checking out for the fans of House and Club music.
Today's second blog is Mood Swings Music. It is difficult to describe this blog in a few lines. This is not a bad thing, but makes my job more interesting! Where to begin? With some names: "Milemaker (Punk/ New Wave), Killing Joke (Post-punk), Dennis Wilson (Baroque Pop), Eric le Lann (Jazz) and even Van Morrison. Another good thing, apart from the wide variety of music and music genres, is the fact that Mood Swings Music is updated on a daily basis. Sometimes the blog even has more than one post a day. This blog is TIPPED without doubt.
At Eclectic Grooves one can find "everything but the kitchen sink". Rap, Psych Fuzz Rock, Electro-Jazz, Free Folk, you name it, Eclectic Grooves probably has it. The lay-out is simple, yet clear and straight-forward, updates are seemingly almost on a weekly basis. The music selection is diverse, albeit of good quality. Yes, this blog is a winner! Go ahead and check out!
