The connectivity of fitness technology has come a long way in recent years. From ever-advancing wearables like smartwatches and smart rings, to punch tracking boxing equipment, to connected ankle weights and kettlebells, there is now a connected fitness device for just about everything. And with the continual evolution of technology, the hybrid fitness model, and the integration of Web3 concepts in fitness, even greater convenience and connectivity are on the horizon.

Machine Gun Kelly & Pop Punk’s New Class

Posted by Claire McConnell on Mar 24, 2022 11:00:00 AM

Machine Gun Kelly brought back pop punk in a big way with 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall, and the commercial success and award recognition for that album has been paving the way for a new class of rockers. From new artist collabs with Blink-182’s legendary drummer Travis Barker to the nostalgic line-up of ‘90s/’00s emo-rock heavyweights on the When We Were Young festival line-up, there’s no denying pop punk’s presence in the zeitgeist and its role in defining this new decade of music.

Interpolation: What's New (or Not) in Pop Music?

Posted by Claire McConnell on Feb 25, 2022 4:00:00 PM

Defining pop music has long been a moving target filled with hyphens in an effort to pin down the sound currently defining a culture. As music production, sounds, and styles evolve, pop tends to be the genre where you can easily hear what’s trending - often taking the most appealing sonic elements of other genres and making them mainstream. Like fashion and other elements of pop culture, it’s easy to observe the cyclical nature of these trends and the heavy reliance on nostalgia.

Young Thug's Punk Cred

Posted by Juan Hernandez-Cruz on Oct 14, 2021 10:00:00 AM

Examining Young Thug’s punk cred from a music curation perspective.

Here at Feed Media Group, curators like myself spend hours listening to music from all genres in search of the perfect songs for our clients. The musical knowledge we share is vast, and for me, a genre that I’m especially in tune with is punk. That’s why when Young Thug announced that his new album was actually going to be called P*nk, for punk, I had to take a closer look.

If Rock Is The New Jazz, What Does That Mean For Artists And Fans?

Posted by Arturno Lovazzano on Jul 27, 2021 10:00:00 AM

For music lovers from Gen X to Boomers, the unthinkable has recently happened. While an emerging trend since the turn of the century, it’s now clear that rock music is no longer the most popular music genre in the US. Rock ruled the charts for over 40 years, but before that jazz was the dominant preference for most listeners, especially teenagers and young adults. Is Rock the New Jazz?

It's a Trap! Celebrating the Trap DNA in Pop Music around the World

Posted by Juan Hernandez-Cruz on Jul 6, 2021 7:02:28 PM

When we look at the last 20+ years of music, to say that hip hop has become a pillar of popular music would be an understatement. 

The same could be said for trap music and, although we often use the beat and hi-hat as identifiers of the sound, it’s also differentiated by vocalization, composition, and lyrical tropes. This allows trap as a genre to be more absorbable and easier to mix, therefore the spectrum of influence is wide.

Pop is Perking Up

Posted by Dario Slavazza & Eric "Stens" Stensvaag on Dec 6, 2020 8:56:10 PM

Last December, our curation team made a handful of Music Trends for 2020 predictions, including that “songs have been getting slower, that’s going to change soon.” While this year has been full of unpleasant experiences, this modest prediction has proven accurateresulting in a welcome number of upbeat, energetic chart hits. While others are busy publishing their year-end lists (which we also love), we wanted to celebrate some of the biggest artists and songs behind this trend of musical acceleration.
