NYE Essentials Vol. 1

As 2013 comes to a close and everyone gathers with their friends and family to ring in 2014, I sit here and reminisces about everything that has happened since this site has launched back in September. It has only been four months, but in that time Oblivious Pop have reached over 10,000 views, with 5,000 of those being in the month of December alone. To be honest though, Oblivious Pop isn't about getting views and being a big name blog. Oblivious Pop's sole purpose is to help artists' music reach people it normally wouldn't reach. Writing about music and telling your friends is the best way for people to listen. I want to help musicians spread their amazing music throughout the world. I want someone to come across Oblivious Pop and find their favorite bands. I want them to fall in love with the band or artist and follow them through their journey in the music industry. In four months, I feel like Oblivious Pop is in the right direction in doing so. After working with two amazing artists, Germans and Marlene ∞, to put together an amazing show, I feel like Oblivious Pop is on the right track to helping artists. 2013 is now reaching its final hours, but after looking back on how successful everything has been this past year I believe that Oblivious Pop is in the right mindset to further expand itself. I'm currently working on ideas that are going to push Oblivious Pop to the next level. I've set some new goals for Oblivious Pop to achieve in the next year and I hope that all of the viewers who love Oblivious Pop will stick with us as these changes occur throughout the year. I couldn't do this without the help and support of everyone I've met and haven't met. To all of my friends in the music industry that have helped me out this year, thank you! I also want to thank the people who work at Hype Machine. I've been an avid follower of their site, which has introduced me to the music blogs that I follow on a daily basis. Adding Oblivious Pop to their site has been a major help with everything. I look forward to the next year of music. So much phenomenal music is being released, and with our plans in London, 2014 looks like it will be epic. Oblivious Pop will be there to help bring this music to as many people as it possibly can. I also cannot wait to have all of these ideas that are just floating in my head become reality!
With this, I give you our final offering of 2013. This is our NYE Essentials Vol. 1 playlist. It features a rocking set of songs that will help you party your way into the New Year. All of these artists on the playlist are major inspirations behind the music that I feature on Oblivious Pop. I hope that you enjoy, jam out, and share this with your friends and family. Enjoy the rest of 2013, and may you all stick around and enjoy 2014 with Oblivious Pop!

-Mike
