The internet has officially killed the video star. As someone who grew up transfixed by all the british new wave and synthpop artists and videos of the 80s, my destiny was cemented. MTV may no longer be relevant and music labels seem to only cater to artists they deem commercially viable. In their eyes, you are only as good as how well your last album sold. You would think with all this talk that the future of music looks bleak, however, in reality there has never been a better time for artists to create music and find an audience. We can thank the Internet for that. Artists can now post sound clips, create videos and connect through social media to their fans in ways they could never do so before. And they no longer have to rely on a record label to promote them (although it sure is nice when they do). With so much talent and music in this vast world to choose from, connecting to that musical needle in a haystack of straw can become daunting, if not down right impossible. This is where bop2pop comes in. I scour the interwebs with a knowledge of the past and a keen eye to the future. I pick videos and songs i personally love and share it with whomever will listen. I hope you enjoy it.
Bop2pop will not host music to download unless given permission by the artist. Many times artists will make songs and remixes readily available to download, for free, to help promote themselves. When this is the case, I will include the links so you can download them too (“guilt-free”). Bop2pop loves its artists and encourages others to support them too.
