About Downbeat.fm

Downbeat.fm is an independent publication launched in January 2020 by Mike Rastiello.

Downbeat.fm is a monthly newsletter and playlist that publishes on both Apple Music and Spotify.

I started this project in 2020 just a few short months before the lockdown started, and it really helped me get through that time. However, the reason that I started the project was to discover new music and get out of the musical rut I was in.

Since this project launched, there have been four complete volumes which you can find on my profiles linked above, including one master playlist of the entire project, which totals over three days of continuous music (Apple Music / Spotify).

Pour yourself a drink, check out some of the past issues, and listen to some great tunes.

If this is your jam, I'd love for you to subscribe so you don't miss a single song.
