Just seeing how it all works…
Here’s one of my recent “finds”. So late to the party, because apparently anyone who knows anything is already on the tip with Brighton England’s DJ Robert Luis. Amazing. I’ve already been listening to as many as possible of his back log of posts on Mixcloud. They go under the name Tru Thoughts. Already I […]
Gotta love this. So inspirational. People of every persuasion getting together to make one helluva musical occasion: Make Music New York Festival What Happens When 350 Musicians Meet For The First Time In Brooklyn?

Call it another brick in the wall. The surviving members of Pink Floyd have gotten together to slam Pandora for its support of an Internet radio bill that the rockers say would lead to an 85 percent pay cut for musicians. “It’s a matter of principle for us,” they wrote in an editorial published over […]
