What a year it has been – full of ups and downs. This year we passed the 3000 posts mark and we’ve never published as much as in 2021 (almost 1000 records). It’s also been a busy year for both of us. Krister started a new job and Jacob got married. This was the year we printed our first ever t-shirts and set up a newsletter.
The newsletter is by far the best way to get updates from the site, since we don’t use fb to promote anymore. You will get only one email (every Friday) if you sign up and we currently have about 50 subscribers. We hope to get more in 2022!
In 2021 we’ve seen an almost equal split between the genres we cover. The electronic music coverage has increased to be around 50% currently. Thanks for sticking with us as we evolve. This means that the end-of-year lists for 2021 will be split into electronic and non-electronic. Since we have many lists to publish, let’s get started with the first one. Happy holidays and enjoy our recommendations for the best compilations and reissues of the year.
