drbmd fwd'd me the latest tb6 newsletter today, i assume to draw my attention to the fact that quintron and miss pussycat are scheduled to play bloomington on oct 30. (i haven't heard any of their stuff yet, so i can't judge how interested i'd be in the show [and virago & i have dinner plans that possibly conflict anyway] but i plan to remedy that soon.)
the top of the newsletter mentions that dj /rupture has a blog. it looks pretty interesting, with musical discussion ranging from breakcore to grime to reggaeton to all sorts of "world music". see his 10-step guide to selling out or these posts where he responds to a christoph fringeli post on the c8 board (which i haven't been keeping up with very much recently).
/rupture's blog points us to wayne & wax, who's very prolific and seems to have a lot to say about production, reggae, and other such stuff. even better, wayne blogs for a group blog called the riddim method, with lots of discussion about mashups, copyfighting, remixing, and what have you. it's like boomselection with brains.
i've added all these to the "mp3blogs" section of my blogroll, which should add a little more variety so it's not all outsider/incorrect blogs anymore, which is good.¶
