Since 2007, The Find (based in the Netherlands) has been dedicated to promoting the diffusion of hip hop with jazz, funk, soul, and related styles. We are inspired by the culture of ‘crate digging’ and thus constantly scour the dusty corners of record shops and outskirts of the internet to find the best music and artistry for you.
Our contributors are in search of overlooked talent across the globe, while also keeping an eye on established artists and labels. Our website provides a resource for the discovery of new, diverse and progressive sounds as well as hip hop reminiscent of the golden era, functioning as a digital crate of records crammed full of fresh tunes.
We hold the aesthetics of hip hop in high regard and strive to bring a unique and unrivalled selection of the best music, artists and independent labels. With timeless content and projects such as guest mixes, a podcast series, magazines, vinyl records, downloads, videos, interviews, digital collabs, and cassette tapes, we aim to bring back the experience of finding new music and genuinely enjoying it, as well as sharing it with friends.
TheFindMag.com is not a daily blog. We don’t post because we have to, we post when we want to. It sounds cliché, but quality over quantity. We don’t care about traffic and clickbait. We care about the artists, the music, and you. Nothing more, nothing less.
“Keep on searchin’
Keep on searchin’
‘Till we find that something to find
With a little touch of jazz and the styles to match
Were a class act, to good times, we’re bringin’ it back
To when it was fresh to say ‘def’
The 80s were a mess, but MCs ‘spose to make ‘em say ‘yes yes’
To all you out searchin’ for that life treasure
The evidence is more closer than ever
… and that’s The Find.”
