The assists new talent by featuring photographs, biographies and interviews of them in the “Ones to Watch’ section and invites artists and bands to submit songs onto the site. also showcases interviews and video snippets of fresh bands and artists featured on The Chilli Factor show.

Fresh talent showcased on is further profiled in Rip It Up Magazine and during Channel Z’s New Zealand Music Updates programme.
