The Rare MP3 blog


The tip of today is the Rare MP3 blog. An amazing site which hosts an even more impressive amount of albums. The blog provides rare, deleted, oop (out of print) and hard to find music, including various bootlegs and some soundtracks. Chuntao has been running this blog now for over a year and it has only gotten better ever since! Pay special attention to the blog's Fanny Collection which includes 6 (!) albums. And while you at it, this one is a must have for every self-respecting rock fan. Enjoy the Rare MP3 blog its massive!

Three One Oh

Three One Oh! focuses strictly on new Electro House and Fidget House releases. Its contributors Kopedale and DJ supply their visitors with 8 to 10 posts a month full with club downloads. Their Electro House Wednesdays are highly recommendable! Also check out their amazing Spencer & Hill (google their myspace page, which is worth visiting btw) and Felguk collections! Finally, also check out DJ's Essential Selections Podcasts, its hot damn hot! Done? then sit back, relax and enjoy this one:

Funky Town Disco Music

My eyes hurt! Funky Town Disco Music is full of funky colors! However, it is not all flashy make-up which this site has to offer! No, of course not! The people from Funky Town take you instead back to the 1970s and fill your ears with disco music, funky classics, ageless soul and great pop songs. The blog wants you to revive the music of that age and regain the memories of your friends, adventures and your first love... Yep, David (the owner) is a romantic :)!. You go David! Now, lets get funky!

Michael Willow

Every now and then we promote a new, unknown or talented artist. This time that is Michael Willow. Michael is a Greek singer whose songs are distinctive for their intense lyricism that cover a wide range of subjects (isolation, loneliness, love etc) . He is influenced by various musicians, such as David Bowie, Tori Amos, Scorpions among many others. He is known for his distinctive baritone voice, but has nevertheless been commented as having an “Axl Rose vocal quality”. is a professional multi-blog that since February 2009 offers its services to new and upcoming musicians. It is thus not only focused on Michael Willow's own music, but also helps musicians and fans to find useful information on various music related subjects. The website is "an independent voice in the music world with the main aim to spread and produce quality music". Check it out!

O Holly night

Noise Problems.

With some delay we would like to introduce you to Noise Problems. The blog provides you with music from almost any genre, mostly live concerts, that are all nicely uploaded in high quality mp3 format. The blog is Amsterdam based, which in my eyes, is always a plus. They work with on-site players that allow you to listen before you download. What to expect?

Well think of names such as: Blues Control (Noise-Rock), Punky Donch (reggae), Capillary Action (pop rock) and many other lesser known musicians, bands and artists. I hope the Dutchies will continue their blogging efforts, because I want to hear a lot more! Enjoy Noise Problems.

Pure house music

Pure House Music, does give you ehh... HOUSE MUZIK. The blog opened up sometime in September of this year and has ever since posted very regularly 2 to 3 posts per day. Here you find DJs such as: Green Velvet, Nick Harvey, Remaniax, DJ Jean and many others. Expect an emphasis on Club-House, Electro and Progressive House. The thing we liked about the blog is the fact that it allows lesser known DJ talents to upload their promos, mash ups and mix tapes. Supporting the industry is always a good cause. Keep it up, mes ami(e)!

Jake and Elwood


Some people can do everything. Well nearly everything, Jake and Elwood seem to be such people. They manage to maintain 5 different blogs. One for each decade. Jake and Elwood - 1960s provides you with the best of the Byrds (love 'em), The Beach Boys and many others from a time that has long passed by. Their 1970s blog, which I personally find well worth visiting (might be because I think that it was then that the best music was made), is full of good albums from the Doors, Kraftwerk and many others. The 1980s are again well worth visiting for your Black Sabbath and Blondie tracks. The 1990s is their seemingly most popular blog. Here you find Lenny Kravitz, Outkast, Queen etc. Their last blog (where do they find the time!) is more contemporary in nature and deals with the almost past decade of 2000-2009. Ever heard of Beyoncé, Neneh Cherry or DEUS? Tired of visiting them all at once? Well rest assured Jake and Elwood are willing to help you a bit and summerise the best of the best in their greatest hits blog. That last blog is more informative in nature and thus hosts a lot more text. Well boys and girls, I think Jake and Elwood deserve the title of tip of the day. Congratz, guys - well done!!

Chill Out Session with DJ Cool Carla

Our inbox is full with all kinds of requests, questions and recommendations. Chill people chill! Fortunately there are blogs such as this one. All you need to do at DJ Cool Carla's Chill Out Session is to: 1) press play 2) listen and relax. The blog is served with "extra flavor for maximum relaxation and grooves". All tracks are directly accessible from their site and composed of ambient,chill out, deep house, downtempo, Dub, Future Jazz, Latin and a pinch of triphop. Sit back and relax!

MP3 Zippy

Whether or not MP3 Zippy is part of the Zippy conglomerate is unknown to us. MP3 Zippy works on the basis of weekly updates that mainly provide you with popular remixes. The choise is yet limited, but we hope to see more soon. The site also hosts a good search option which allows you to more easily find your music in the Zippyshare database. Search and one shall find! DJ Shadow (ninja tune) gave me 44 results back, Beethoven 60, Nouvelle Vague and Shakira too many!

Sunday, 22 November 2009


Last, but not least, review update for today! Its time for some dub (finally!)! Dadasonic's opinion on dub is not a rhythm, but an idea". The blog goes dub and even beyond. We saw UK dub, old and new styled reggae and much more! We saw reviews, updates, youtube links and some solid remixes ready to be downloaded. Want to stay informed about who is who and who does what in the dub galaxy? Dadasonic is your place! King Midas Sound, bOOmbOx (delicious it is indeed!), Dubterror etc, etc. It is all here! Enjoy with or without your green.

Roller Ship

Jonah asked us to add his blog Roller Ship already some time ago. Here, at All Music, All Blogs, there was however, some discussion as to whether or not it was a good idea. I hear you asking "was it that bad?". No, of course not Roller Ship is a great blog! But it is not all music here. We decided to review it anyway, because the blog's selected movies fit well to its music! After all, who can resist movies such as galaxina, fantastic planet (that is actually a very good one) and many other cultish delights! Music-wise Jonah is similarly well-informed, expect some new waves, a tad of jazz, a little avant garde and one tyrannosaurus rex. White Noize, Joe Birkin, Moondog here I come!

Pssst, enjoy the blog's Green Slime (IMDB)

From the front of the choir

Chris is a singing workshop leader specialising in unaccompanied harmony songs from around the world. His blog "From the front of the choir" is an example how music blogs are supposed to be: made with love and with a lot of passion for music. His blog is funny, informative and personal. Chris presents his thoughts and views on the use of vocals in music. He does this on the basis of "Natural Voice" principles. The "Natural Voice" ethos states "that everybody can sing... and that nobody should be denied access to music. Hence the method doesn’t use written notation, but all songs are taught by ear". Want to learn more or improve your singing ability, while having fun? Check Chris' blog out and learn from a pro!

Sloppy Records

Sloppy Records is an interesting interdisciplinary blog. Let its owner, Red Dirt, take you from the drum and bass of Seba & Krazy to the folky and intriguing voice of Marianne Faithfull. All Music, All Blogs definitely recommends Sloppy Records! Don't forget to try their uploaded Likwid Biskit "The All New Umm", its fffunkyy!

Salvo’s Muzic

Salvo’s Muzic looks a bit like a disco dance hall. Rest assured however, I mean that in a good way! The blogs' flashy colors are complemented with the latest in lounge, soul, nu jazz, full house, deep house and electro. All mixes are made by the blog's house DJs. Salvo also provides you with relevant music news, music videos and numerous helpful links.

Seduced by Music

Seduced by Music is a new pop music blog. The blog specializes in new releases, so expect: Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Stereophonics and various compilations.

Turkish punk rock

After Dutch Hiphop comes Turkish punk rock! I kid you not, this blog does deliver just that! The amount of posts is still marginal, but given the popularity of the genre in Turkey's capital Istanbul, we hope for more soon!

Golden Era Raps

The Golden Era Raps is a very nice hiphop blog with music from the golden 1990s. I spend a significant amount of time here, browsing through their nice collection of classic hiphop albums. Tha Alkaholiks,Black Sheep, A Tribe called Quest, Fat Joe, Nas you'll find them all here. The blog is still young, the choice limited, but the Golden Era Raps has definitely potential. As always, enjoy!

Nederhop 070

Every country has its own music culture, so don't be surprised to hear that the Netherlands has its own hiphop traditions. Nederhop 070 (anybody knows what 070 is?) is all about... well, Dutch Hip Hop 'natuurlijk' (translates as 'of course'!). The whole website is in Dutch, but expect all downloads to link to international upload sites such as: Jumbofiles, megaupload etc. Wonder how Dutch rap sounds, check this out:


Shareconnector does pretty much do everything. Don't be surprised to find Westside Connection, Roxette and Motley Crue all here. The blog has a basic lay-out and hosts both music and music videos. To make things easier, Shareconnector has a search option which helps you to better maneuver through its sizable database. A good blog to spend some time on a lazy Sunday. Enjoy!

Breaknshit (BNS)

Another new blog. BNS (breaknshit) started blogging last October on an almost day-to-day basis. What they do? Th latest electro remixes, mashups and some tricky triphop. I have seen remixes and mashups of Dead Prez, Tiesto, MGMT and even Madonna. Keep it up guys!
