Hey, my homeslices!   A friend of mine has recently started up a music blog called traxx24, which has a sweet collection of posts so far and totally sounds like it could be an awesome arcade racing game.   It’s mostly about music marketing if you’re looking to get inspired for methods of promoting your tracks, but with an EDM edge to it.

There’s a really useful one collating a bunch of crowd-funding sites if you’re looking to harness your audience, some insightful interviews and a bunch of production-related tutorials to come.

Take a look and let him know if you have any ideas for posts or tutorials through his contact page, I know I always appreciated people giving ideas especially when I was starting out!

If you’ve been producing or listening to Chiptune music and want to know where to promote it or find more new tunes, look no further.  A community of people whose musical hearts lie in obsolete processors and retro emulation is just over the horizon…

Head over to 8 bit collective to see a massive chiptune community in action.   Join up, post a few comments on people’s tunes and then upload your own for other people to check out absolutely free.

Chiptune monoliths such as Henry Homesweet and Random are also members of the community – it’s for anyone and everyone.

In their words:

What is the 8bitcollective?

8bitcollective is the first completely open chiptune-related media repository and file sharing community.

We love chiptunes. We want more people to make chiptunes and we want more people to listen to chiptunes. That’s why anyone can upload or download their chiptune-related media at 8bc.org.

Sorted.   That link again:

Well while you wait for the upcoming seven day song tutorial I’ll be making for boyinaband, where I’ll go through creating a Dubstep song from start to finish, head over to this awesome online Dubstep forum…

Okay, so this whole week I’ve been blogging here on boyinaband.com about the amazing genre Glitch Hop and I figure a nice way to end the Glitch Hop week is to link you to a site where you can hear more of it, share your own Glitch Hop tracks and immerse yourself in the community around it.

Check out www.glitchhopforum.com run by 2 of the artists in my Top 5 Glitch Hop Artists blog and expand the community!   You’ll find new music, tips on production and news on Glitch Hop Events there.   Sweet, huh?

I hope the past few blogs have been interesting and helped to expand your horizons and encourage you to try out your own Glitch Hop music!

Any other important websites relating to Glitch Hop you think need mentioning?   Post them in a comment below!
