♬ Music is one of the most inspiring things in life and it really brings people together. That's a good enough reason to always keep searching for new music to listen to. In the #FINDNEWMUSIC post series I'll feature some of my favorite places to discover new tunes. ♬

The First #FINDNEWMUSIC feature is a Norwegian Electronic Music Blog titled Core News. The content is mostly UK radio mixes and select other mixtapes & tracks. My favorite thing about Core News is that you can find an archive of BBC Essential Mixes as well as other BBC Radio 1 & 1xtra shows ranging from Annie Mac to Rob da Bank. BBC Radio 1 actually provides these for free too, but for limited time and only for UK citizens.

To highlight the variety of mixes available at Core News, here's some of my favorites from this year:

Pete Tong The Essential Selection 2011-09-09 with Nic Fanciulli and Art Department
Pete Tong's Essential Selection is one of the biggest electronic music radio shows out there. These shows are always fresh and still easy to listen to - and usually there's world exclusives from big players of the electronic music world like Pryda, Deadmau5, Afrojack etc. I remember this specific show being so good because of the first three tracks - what a way to start a radio show on a Friday evening.

DJ Hell live at Diesel Island Ibiza 2011-08-22
This live mix broadcasted from Diesel Island Ibiza is a great example of the more rare stuff you can find on Core News. DJ Hell is one of the real techno legends out there and this mix has been on proper heavy rotation on my iPhone.

Annie Mac Mashup 2011-07-22 with Erick Morillo
Listening to Annie Mac's energetic blend of Drum&Bass, Electro, Dubstep and many other genres is always a great start for the weekend. I remember this show being even better thanks to the Erick Morillo Ibiza Minimix. And Annie's voice is kinda cute.
