We start this year with the realization of our biggest ambition since day one: this is the release of our printed hip hop magazine!
Issue Four leans on the concept of crate digging. It’s a source for real music enthusiasts who love to get familiar with new music. Issue Four is full of unknown talents, interviews with respected artists, new releases and music related articles.

Order Here.
We don’t think in overused labels such as underground, mainstream, old school or new school. Good music is good music. And that’s exactly what you find in Issue Four. Hip hop is the main ingredient, but we flirt with other genres such as Jazz, Electronic, Soul and Funk as well. Call it eclectic, call it a cross-over, or let’s just call it qualitative music.
After each feature the reader finds a shortlist with related recommendations, so you can keep on digging for new music that fits your personal taste perfectly. Besides free European shipping, you also get a free digital mix by DJ Swann. The 80 tracks are organized in the same order as the pages of the magazine. Thanks to the separated tracks and the magazine themed tags, you can easily navigate through the mix and listen to the artist you are reading about in the mag. The magazine is a canvas; the mix is its musical frame.
Aesthetics are very important to us. Last year we’ve released the critically acclaimed project ‘The Find Rewind‘. A physical beat tape, sold out within two weeks, with exclusive instrumentals by a wide array of producers. Among them were Stro The 89th Key, Kev Brown, Suff Daddy, Dela and Headnodic (of Crown City Rockers). The sequel, a possible vinyl project, is in the pipeline as we speak. After limited edition T-shirts in collaboration with the European label Project Mooncircle, Issue Four is our new physical effort. A printed magazine with the best music, the smell of fresh paper and an accompanying digital mix make this into another aesthetic experience for true music enthusiasts.
We have been working on this project for over a year now. Each and every one of us is very passioned about this project and without being biased, it’s fair to say that this is our best release so far. So if you are a hip hop/music fanatic, then definitely check out Issue Four by The Find Magazine!
