2019 has so far been another busy year and we’ve also released our new book Make Your Music Make Money. As we drift into summer, we thought we’d indulge ourselves with a highlights reel of some of our best read articles.

FEATURES

We’re always on the lookout for stories that captivate and a stand out feature came from Pittsburgh which has been rebuilding its club scene with a focus on sustainability. While many clubs continue to close, Hot Mass in Pittsburgh has epitomised how the right ingredients can pave the way for success and sustainability in difficult and uncertain times.

Ever imagined the pitfalls of being a parent and a DJ? If not, then our feature ‘DJs on Parenthood‘ feature will help you realise the difficulty balance of parenting and DJing. Kristan Caryl poses the question of what information you might share with your children? Open book or closed book? The format was so popular that Resident Advisor ripped it off or shall we say re-mixed it?

Growing Old Disgracefully: DJs on Parenthood. Part Two

Nothing courted more opinion than our discussion on the Roland Juno in March. It’s a given that gear is subjective but in this case the lines had been drawn. Agree or disagree? Can any synth lay claim to be ‘the greatest’ of all time?

Social media is here to stay like it or not. As part of a three part series, Chandler Shortlidge discusses how social media has impacted electronic music. Part two in this series featuring contributions from Plastician, Juan Mclean will be published later this week.

Another hotly contested topic as always is studio monitors. It goes without saying that you’ll almost never find two people who agree. The variants are simply too vast and too subjective. In our 2019 round-up we round up ten of the best on the market today from the cheapest to the wallet busting most expensive.
