Youtube Digging Criticism


Well-known member
This is a completely random request, but has anybody seen any good writing on people who tend to dig through youtube and discover music that way, and how it affects the way they listen to music? Reynolds had an allusion to it in a interview, but I was wondering if there was anything more formal.

There's a certain type of mix I like on YouTube. I don't find them too often, but it's cool when I do. They're usually ambient or dance stuff with a still image, sometimes no tracklisting and put together by a random with next to no following. Just someone playing tunes into the ether. The equivalent of finding a radio broadcast back in the day, I suppose. There's a roughness to the presentation I like.
