Recent releases
Old and new, general or commercial
  • [Stream] BBC Radio 1Xtra is the urban division of the BBC organisation, presenting a complete, well-filled schedule. Genres: hip hop and nearly every style related to it. It can be r&b, but it can also be grime or dubstep. Heritage: The UK.
  • [Stream] Konbini Radio plays both underground and mainstream hip hop and r&b. You have to use Google to find information about it (existing since 2008, very serious about curating the tracks, etcetera), because the website is quite empty. Heritage: France.
  • [Stream] Mouv’, part of the French public radio organisation ‘Radio France’, plays general mainstream sounding urban music. The station’s has got a complete program schedule, and some of the tracks are in the French language.
  • [Stream] StuBru Hooray, one of the substreams of the big Belgian station Studio Brussel, plays many types of hip hop music. The tracklist is partly mainstream (in a good way), partly alternative, and some tracks are in the Dutch language.
Old and new, relaxed / subtle
  • [Stream] Beatminerz Radio is the official station of the hip hop production duo Da Beatminerz, DJ Evil Dee and Mr. Walt. Beatminerz Radio mostly plays (relatively subtle) hip hop and r&b. But you’ll also hear old funk, soul and sometimes even funky or bluesy pop or rock songs. Heritage: The USA.
  • [Stream] Gone Up Radio is a – predominantly – hip hop station leaning to the funky/jazzy side of the genre. The atmosphere is relaxed. And despite playing frequently recent tracks, the amount of autotune stays within limits. Note: The regular stream url isn’t playable with some internet radios, like those from Imperial, and can also cause problems in Winamp. But there is an alternative. Heritage: France.
  • [Stream] Say Say plays soulful hip hop, but also funk and soul. There are shows broadcast; a morning show included. There’s something ambitious about this project. Heritage: Germany.
  • [Stream] M2 Hip-Hop plays non-stop old hip hop; mostly on the more refined side of the genre. Many of the tracks have jazzy and/or funky influences. Heritage: France.
  • [Stream] Secousse Street plays a wide variety of (mostly old) hip hop & related music. According to the people behind it: “forgotten, rejected, underappreciated, misunderstood, broke and rebellious.” The station plays many hardly known (or even unknown) tracks, doesn’t sound as ‘local’ as they say, and also not that ‘hardcore gangsta’ as they say. It’s a quite international sounding station with a subtle French touch.
  • [Stream] Super Throwback Party Radio plays hip hop, new jack swing, r&b, etcetera, released in the 80s and 90s. Heritage: The USA.
  • [Stream] WeFunk is a station playing hip hop, funk, soul and related styles. The stream consists of old shows (the oldest ones have been recorded in the early 00s) and sometimes a recent one. The WeFunk show is part of the college station CKut. Heritage: Canada.
