How to expand your music library

If you want to open up and listen to some new music that you aint used to but you just don't know where to start then use some of these tips.

Go off of what you like.

If you mainly listen to hip hop and you want to expand then something you can do is start by your favorite song. Hip Hop is always sampling something so if you like something from the beat you can start looking around for something similar to that. This definitely helped me when I was only stuck listening to Hip Hop.

What you've heard.

Although as of now you might be stuck thinking “I don't like anything out of Hip Hop” your wrong! I used to really really like the song “Super freak” by Rick James and I didnt know it wasn't Hip Hop. Sometimes you'll realise that a lot of the catchy songs you like that are always being played at the store arent Hip Hop so that can really be a way to start you out.

Just cannonball into it.

Sometimes you just need a jump into the unknown waters to test things out. It won't hurt to just explore if you don't like something then you don't but you'll never really know if you keep telling yourself you wish to expand but stay in the same little circle of repeated melodies and drum loops .
