We Are Hunted is an online music chart – but rather than listing tracks based on sales figures, radio plays and general high street popularity, it instead lists tracks based on the Internet buzz about bands and tracks.
It does this by tracking popular social networking sites, such as twitter and facebook as well as blogs and other online resources. They then compile a list of the top 100 tracks based on the amount of social chatter going on.
You can take a look at the latest compiled list at http://www.wearehunted.com and you can play the tracks via the site as well.
In a great mash-up, We Are Hunted now keeps a Spotify playlist up to date with as many of the tracks from their latest chart as possible so you can sit and stream direct to your desktop / iPhone.
You can use the following Spotify link to find the playlist:
It’s not that the whole list is anywhere near my taste but I have found some great tracks and it’s nice to have a way of finding new and emerging talent.
