Ventipop shines a light on lesser-known, deserving artists & songs. Hopefully you'll discover someone new to listen to. I don't write about music. I listen to it. Every featured song gets added to a Ventipop playlist.

Drop us a line if you discover a new artist Ventipop should feature.



I don’t like my language watered down, I don’t like my edges rounded off.
