Hey Guys,
For a class at my university, I am researching how the internet introduces people to new media. I figured this would be a good place to pose the question above: what piece of music, preferably from outside your culture, would you not have found without the internet? Thanks for your responses! I really appreciate your input.

    I'm a slav so you can pick pretty much any LULZcore album. I certainly would not have been cool and "alt" enough to develop a unique taste by going to shows and buying CDs

      the best album of a random Canadian autist that for some reason has a small cult following in Russia

    Not really any specific song, but an obvious thing to write about: Japanese jazz fusion and city pop, and some ambient albums too, from those couple years where the youtube algorithm started recommending all that to everyone for no apparent reason. I believe it may have started or peaked with Plastic Love, that was at least one of the big songs and you should be able to find articles about it.
    Only other thing that comes to mind right now is My Analog Journal which is a youtube channel that hosts mixes of various genres from all over the world. I've found a lot of old and new music outside my culture there. https://www.youtube.com/@MyAnalogJournal
    Now that a lot of music like this is in my algorithms, the platforms I use regularly recommend more music I otherwise probably wouldn't have found. I think that the recommendation algorithms can see that you listen to music "outside your culture" and recommend more music like that but often of different genres and cultures, as the algo sees that other people with similar listening habits are already listening to that music.

    unironically, lurking some of the sharethreads on LULZ from 2009-2010 really exposed me to all kinds of cool new music. i was all radio top 40s before, and at that time LULZ was all about GY!BE and NMH and it was like, there's more to music than 4 min long corporate pop, so even though this place has become gutter trash, thanks to everyone who was here and is still here

    Tuvan throat singing. Stumbled on it while researching the origin of doggos.
