Somebody might wonder why here at The Deli we bundle Hip Hop with other related or unrelated genres like funk, world music, ethnic etc etc. The answer is embarrassing: we are not very well connected with those scenes, and only cover them sporadically. As a consequence, we don't get a lot of Hip Hop submissions (which is a good thing by the way... don't ask!). The other genres are even less represented in our blog... So, rather than having to create seven different categories with a few acts each, we bundle them together with Hip Hop... understood?
