Hello world!

WELCOME !

Congratulations on finding this new, fresh and hopefully darn helpful blog. It’s a music blog, mainly covering new Indie and Electro/Dance music, but before you start thinking it’s just another, please think again…

This blog will mainly comprise of 4 things:


1) THE RECOMMENDER –
I’ve been doing this on Myspace’s blog section for some time, but figured it’s worth its own page. Basically, I’ll be trawling through the interweb and grabbing all manor of snippetts from the world of music, washing them down, and sorting them into a couple of top-notch recommendations for your ears delight. It will always be new music bubbling in the undeground, readying itself for you pleasure. You will no longer have to wade through the ether of endless spamming promoters and industry fluff. Just pop here every now and again and check out what I highlight. Your ears will be thankful.

2) THE GIG LIST – OK, this is similar, but this time I’ll be searching out and recommending the highlights of upcoming gigs listed in my local city of Brighton. Again, only the best will get on here and again it will be mainly new acts/bands/DJ’s. I will be abusing my local connections and keeping in touch with every outlet for all the best venues. I promise to work hard so you don’t have to.

3) HOW GOOD IS THIS!!!??? – This section will be like a mini-post. A showcase of more random highlights I’ve found. These things won’t deserve their own ‘Recommender ‘or ‘Gig List’ posting and therefore won’t have quite as much detail. It could be a music clip, a new tune, a top 10 list, a new site, anything to do with music. More just a pointer, rather than an in depth piece of information, but yummy and wholesome all the same.

4) Q & A – This will be far less frequent. It will be posted up only when I’ve had a chance to interview new bands and DJs about what and why they do what they do. Its a chance for you to get a little closer to the new acts breaking into your scene. Usually just a dozen or so questions. It’s not overly intrusive, just the good old basics, but much fun all the same. I’ll also try and add a video or something to allow you to check them out for yourselves.

Take these or leave them, but it’s free, it should be enlightening and I promise nothing on here will be a waste of your investigative time. My only hope is to make you a tiny bit better informed than you were before…

Feel free to comment, subscribe, share the love, or totally leave it – it is your choice. I just hope you enjoy…

All the best,
Mike
