Want your new release reviewed? We are looking for labels to sponsor our review section.

Greetings.

Since we have FINALLY launched our review section on our website http://www.electrobeat.dk we are now looking for labels who want to submit material for reviews.

Electrobeat.dk is a danish online community site, which is the most popular and used here. We have around 500 unique visitors everyday and a pool of 2000 users.

The reviews are in danish, and are featured on the frontpage of the site w/picture and text for a number of days before they enter our article database. Reviews get a link to an online retailer of your choice, for instance psyshop, saikosounds or whereever.

Examples of reviews are here

VA - Pyrogenetic (Psytropic Records, 2005)
http://www.electrobeat.dk/v2/articles.php?article_id=2

Sensient - AntiFluoro (Zenon Records, 2006)
http://www.electrobeat.dk/v2/articles.php?article_id=1

We will review just about anything, as long as it suits the definition of electronic music.

Just dont expect us to review your whole back cataloque all at once.

Reviews pending already, from Iboga Records and Psytropic Records.

All of our reviewers must live up to a certain standard in regards to writing and so forth - people who have read my posts on isratrance and psynews know Im serious about this stuff.

In case your interested, feel free to contact me on okrello@hotmail.com or through a PM here on Isratrance.

I was warned asking like this might offend some people - Dont be, we are just trying to create a cultural ressource for our local scene here, targetted at people who never make it to psynews or isratrance for that matter.

Best Wishes

Translation:

Dear Labels,

We want you to send us free music, and in exchange we will write a short 300 word blurb about it. Thanks

There isn't that simpler?

You certainly covered an important part of it.

Still, I think its relevant that there is also frontpage exposure of the reviews. I mean, its 500 exposures a day, I think we have the articles on frontpage for 5 days with short text and cover picture - That is at least 2500 times people will be confonted with it.

In any case, I would like to believe that reviews and that kind of promotion from someone other than the labels themselves are good for something.

Should one of our reviewers be motivated to write a review of music they would love to own, only or in part by the prospect of getting a CD for free, then I personally have no problem with it. Just as long as they write their honest opinion of the release in a language fitting such an article.

Like I said, for electrobeat.dk its about creating editorial content on our site. Afterall, the website as such does not care about free CDs, and in the end, the cds are for the reviewers. What electrobeat.dk needs is reviews.

Best Wishes

The reviews are limited to "electronic music" only.

What truely sets the limit there is actually the availability of engaged and competent reviewers.

We are missing reviewers for electronica, drum&bass, dance, hardcore, electro acoustic and genres like that.

Most the the users of our site are into trance, house, hardstyle and chillout - this also reflects the reviewer staff at the moment.

There are limits though, we are not going to be reviewing stuff like R&B or similar just because its made electronicly.

To be realistic, I think most reviews will be trance, house or chillout - simply because thats where we have the most user interests, and we recruit reviewers among our users.

To show what our reviews look like I translated the last one from danish to english, it can be read by clicking the link on the bottom of this post.

For now, we have reviewed the following releases.

Sound Field Audio Surfin' (Oxygen Records, 2007)
VA - Evil Voices (Evil Knivel Records, 2006)
VA - Slow Release (Open Records, 2006)
VA - Trash Art (Tribal Vision Records, 2006)
Vibrasphere - Archipelago (Digital Structures, 2006)
Carbon Based Lifeforms - World Of Sleepers (Ultimae Records, 2006)
Faxi Nadu - Intelligence EP (D-A-R-K Records, 2006)
VA - Pyrogenetic (Psytropic Records, 2005)
Sensient - AntiFluoro (Zenon Records, 2006)

Our review staff is made up of well respected musical freaks, at the moment counting.

- N.A.S.A(Iboga Records)
- Zoolog(Cosmic Theatre Records)
- Dj Jespar(Chilldown.dk)
- Quark(Photonlabs.dk / Dogma Central Records)
- Dj Krell(Jester Records / electrobeat.dk)

Each reviewer selects what they want to review, if you want me (Dj Krell) to review one of your releases, you can contact me on my email okrello@hotmail.com

http://www.psynews.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=45245&pid=717972&mode=threaded&show=&st=0#entry717972

I am truely sorry if this kind of approach is offensive to some, I just want to add to the danish online ressources on our site in coorporation with the labels and artists interested in this kind of promotion.

Reviews of albums by Faxi Nadu, Setherian, Eraser and Yojalka and Oliver Jones are on their way.

Thanks for your time
