Site News: Oooo it looks all different!

Yeah, I got bored last night and look! All change. I’m not in any way a graphic designer but I’m pretty busy the next two weeks so you’re stuck with this until at least them!

Anyway, it’s a long weekend here in the UK so I’m not sure how much posting there will be over the next four days, which is a pity ‘cos something tasty just landed in our inbox, but it will have to wait as we’re shutting up shop in twenty minutes to enjoy the sunshine. Might be able to squeeze it in tomorrow.

Have a good weekend y’all!

Brand new Justice track!!! (not a fake!)

Really? You think?

No, of course we haven’t got any tracks from the forthcoming album and anyone who says the have, out side of the Ed Banger/Elektra camp, is probably lying. Fool.

However…while we’ve got you here we’d like to appeal to your humanity for a second and ask you to spare a thought, and maybe some bucks, for our bros over in Japan. Those crazy dudes have enough to deal with cleaning up after all the Godzilla rampages…and now this?!?! The footage of the tsunami was some scary shit, and the rising death toll is even scarier. The Japanese have been dealing with the situation amazingly but I’m sure every little bit you can do to help is appreciated.

The best thing you can do to help right now is to show your support by donating to the Red Cross’ appeal. Which, handily, you can do in many countries. To make it even easier for you here a are a few links:


Apologies to my French brethren, I didn’t have a clue about the Croix-Rouge website, if anyone wants to email us the link I’ll add it.

Go on, in exchange for all my hard work over the past three years bringing you the best new Electro, a couple of bucks and we’ll call it quits!

Edit: I added a red Cross picture! See what I did there?

Calling the troops!

Good morning Electro fans!
As a aside this morning I’m asking my readers for a quick favour.
A good friend of mine is working on the marketing module of her fashion degree at university.

As part of this she needs to get some market research done, so if our female readers could take two minutes to fill in this little survey for her we would be pretty grateful and post some shit hot music this afternoon!

Thanks guys!

Site news: 2009<2010!!!


Shutting up shop for 48 hours while the new year is seen in with good friends, good music and good times!

electronic rumors hopes you all have a bangin’ new year’s eve and that you are all as exited as we are about the coming year’s electronic music. Just the first few months are going to be crazy good! Keep an eye out for albums from CHEW LiPS, Delphic, Shy Child, Marina And The Diamonds, Ellie Goulding & Goldfrapp and EPs from The Vanish, Fan Death, Russ Chimes (fingers crossed) and so many more.

As far as electronic rumors goes, there are some plans in the pipeline for 2010. Dedicated hosting, more contributors and a big ol’ site redesign are all on the cards for the coming months.

Thank you all for reading the site and sticking with us through this years downtime, If I didn’t know so many of you out there appreciate the site I might have never came back! I’m glad I did.

‘Tis the season!

This’ll probably be the last post on electronic rumors before the new year, between now and then we’ll be working hard on our ‘best of 2009’ post.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our readers, especially those who stuck with us during our down time, to thank all those of you who email us to let us know what you like and don’t like, to thank all our regulars for helping to make us one of the biggest ElectroPop/Electro-House/Indie-Electro/SynthPop oriented blogs on the internet today and especially to thank all the bands without who we wouldn’t have anything to obsess over!

We hope you all have the greatest X-Mas ever!

As a gift to you we’ve put together 20 of the best electronic X-Mas songs, there’s some stuff we had to leave out but these are some of our favs.

So enjoy the music, eat, drink and be merry and we’ll see you in a week or so.

Happy X-Mas!

Site news: Still here!


S’up Peeps?

Right, rather than leave you in an Electro void for months like last time (soz!) I thought I’d give you a heads up.

The lack of posts this week is going to extend into the weekend, I’m moving house, leaving Hip Camden Town for my beloved Bristol. It’s a cross country move so there’s loads to sort out and shit-loads of packing to do!

Your normal service resumes next Tuesday…Monday if you’re lucky!

Take it easy!
