App Description

Substream is a bi-monthly music and lifestyle magazine that focuses on discovering and sharing the best in new music, fashion and entertainment. By the time the mainstream media decides to cover it, Substream has already beat them to it! We are the industry and fan’s “go to” resource for discovering the next big thing.

In our eyes and the eyes of our readers, Substream describes something that the “mainstream” may dismiss. It doesn’t mean that the “mainstream” will always ignore it, it just means that they haven’t really embraced it yet. That is where Substream steps in and fills the gap.

Our writers and staff are young adults from all over the world that are passionate about music and pop culture. We are the fans. This is our lifestyle and the lifestyle of our readers are our peers. This is why Substream is so widely accepted: our readers TRUST us!
