Blogoverse update

Illustration by archanN

Here's a couple of interesting interviews and mixes I found floating around in the blogosphere (yes, I'm trying out some new nerd-nouns)

Cosmic Disco: MP3 blogs. Good or bad?

Mike Simonetti: I like them. I think it’s a good way to spread the word about new music and open people’s eyes to stuff. As I’ve said before, I’m not against giving music away free on blogs. I think it can only be a good thing.

Cosmic Disco interviews the Italians Do it Better labelhead Mike Simonetti (ie. the label responsible for the After Dark compilation, Glass Candy and Chromatics). Get the mix he's done in the bottom as well!

When I record a track, I always think: "Would I like to listen to it and dance?" This is the way I like music, I want it to make me feel good

Fred Falke reveals to Asian Dan that he has just finished a remix for Lykke Li and will be working on a solo album.

Just like they're supposed to, those Norwegian vikings stormed in and took over the show last night! Really proud to have these guys on. I wasn't planning on airing them on the same night, but it just ended up working out that way and sounds great. Please check them out!

Weblog Oh Baby, I Like it Raw led me to the Norwegian takeover at Beats In Space spearheaded by Strangefruit and Todd Terje.
