Playlist Feature
Magnified Artist Spotlight
Innovative by design, the Google Play Magnified Artists we're featuring here represent some of the best and brightest talent using our artist hub tool to date. Representing independent funk, rock, reggae, rap and dubstep producers and bands who upload music directly to our store, this playlist hints at the musical depths to be found on Play Music. For confirmation, just check Midwest jam-scene veterans Umphrey's McGee, who deliver a soaring version of their live standard “Glory.” Reggae-rockers Rebelution are also JamBase favorites, but they defy stereotypes by adding urban pop to their freeform mix.

Elsewhere, California band Suedehead, led by UK-born singer Davey Warsop, is clearly marked by mod and Northern soul, and those influences shine distinctly on "Small Town Hero." Indiana producer Josh "Figure" Gard mixes dubstep with electro-house on "The Brink." Miami rapper Bizzy Crook explores the unintended consequences of success alongside singer Sketch Carey on "Lonely in Hollywood." Josh Baze raps about Hollywood, too, only he calls it "Hollyhood." And then there's Shannon Labrie, a Nashville songwriter who asks what happened to love in the midst of media cynicism and "Headlines." With so many styles to choose from, it's best to leave expectations at the door.
