100 More Ways to Discover and Enjoy Music

Hey, I’m Chris. I wrote this article and I’m also the founder and Editor of DailyTekk. Lets connect on Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and YouTube. Check back daily!

With over 600k social shares, the original 100 Ways to Discover and Enjoy Music post easily became DailyTekk’s most popular article—ever. Now, around a year and a half later, we’re bringing you a follow-up post: this is part 2. The original post contained some incredible music resources, many of which you are familiar with (Spotify, Pandora, Shazam, etc.). This go around, I’ll bet that 99% of the services here you haven’t yet heard of… meaning you’re going to love digging into this post (Twitter #music is probably the notable exception). Have fun—and be sure to let me know what I missed in the comments below.
