Started in the Fall of 2003, Other Music From A Different Kitchen
, formerly known as Notes From A Different Kitchen
and more commonly just as Different Kitchen
, was one of the early pioneering sites to blog about hip hop music & culture at the advent of the mainstream blogging movement. But what separates The Kitchen
from the glut of tired, derivative and personality-free ‘content aggregators’ is our incredibly discerning, good taste and a more global, cosmopolitan and open-minded perspective that has led to sharing other genres of music, ideas and topics of relevance with our readership. That attitude and mindset has made The Kitchen
a singularly, unique blog media experience, second to none, not to be duplicated anywhere else online.
That experience has also led to Different Kitchen
being chosen one of Vibe
magazine’s Top 50 hip hop blogs
as well as one of XXL
magazine’s 100 Best Hip-Hop Web Sites
. The Kitchen
was also proclaimed “by far [one of the two] greatest hip hop blogs on the block” by the esteemed Guardian
newspaper of England. It is frequently linked to by other blogs as well being referenced and quoted by other respected and well-known mainstream & mass media outlets like The New York Times
, New York
and VH1′s “Best Week Ever”
