October 2016 ‘Top 55′ Song Chart: RadioFlag DJ’s Gave These Artists the Most Spins

RadioFlag’s  ‘Top 55 Song Chart’ is made possible by independent, live radio DJs from college and internet radio stations from around the globe. Every month the Song Chart showcases mostly ‘just released’ (and many ‘not yet released’) music, comprised mainly of new emerging bands and artists from around the world. The Song Chart is based on the number of spins Radio DJs give a track. Data is collected from the songs these radio DJs post on their RadioFlag profile via its playlist feature. This is then analyzed each week.

Besides the regular feast of indie pop, indie rock, electronic and alternative music, stand out music genres for October’s song list include: cinematic-alt- pop out of Nashville, LBC trip hop & alternative grunge, progressive rock from Stockholm, Seattle “pastel- pop”, Washington D.C. based experimental progressive metal, and IDM(intelligent dance music) coming out of Ottawa.

The Radio DJs on RadioFlag who are the first to us its playlist feature, are setting new documented music trends, and they authentically have their finger on the pulse of emerging music and culture both locally and globally; so they often discover and give airplay to new music acts before anyone else. So, if you’re a music artist or band, maybe think about connecting with radio DJ’s via RadioFlag. Check out their profile, tune in to a live show, and if you think they’ll like your style, send them a message or link to your music. If they like your sound and vice versa, they may just give you some spins. If they are posting the music they play, you will see their ‘Playlist’ button on their profile page. Click it and see if the tracks they play sync up with your style. Music can even be purchased directly from the DJs playlist via RadioFlag’s app.
