1. You may have read the news regarding lawsuits from major music labels against Grooveshark. This latest news dealt specifically with an early version of Grooveshark which we dispensed of in 2008 in favor of our current music streaming service. As such we will continue to work with all parties to ensure we respect all artist and songwriter copyrights.

    At Grooveshark, we stand for empowering artists and fans through technology, and bringing music to the world. These goals motivate our team every day, and our efforts have helped improve people’s lives through music — both listeners who discover new music and artists whose music finds an audience through our platform.

    Grooveshark’s service has already provided millions of dollars in revenue to artists and labels all over the world, and we are incredibly proud of this. We operate our business with accountability, honesty and courage, and will continue to do so. 

    There are many exciting things coming up for Grooveshark users in the coming months, so be on the lookout for updates soon.

    Thanks for your support, Sharks.

  2. This week’s Music Spotlight is a new EP from Warp9 called “Space Gold.” They’re self-described as Intergalactic Space Funk; we would add glitch/hop/bass to that description. We’re excited to share the full EP with you a week before its official release. Give it a listen and let us know what you think!

    EDM DJ Milkman recently released “Reboot,” a self-produced EP with five upbeat electronic songs that we can’t stop listening to. We had an opportunity to ask him a few questions about the state of EDM and his recommendations for new artists. Read along, and get ready to ask him your own questions in a live Broadcast taking place today at 2pm EST.

    GS: What do you think is the most overused audio technique today?

    MM: I am cool with everything in moderation, it’s when it begins to get formulaic that it begins to get overused. I think the most overused audio technique isn’t the distorted kicks or pryda snare, even though those are pretty overused. I think the worst thing and most overused is the hard limiter! The loudness war is getting out of control and is killing all the amazing dynamic properties available with electronic music!

    What is your favorite product you can’t live without?

    My Manley Variable Mu compressor! It’s a hardware compressor that I use on ALL of my tracks. That and the Waves Studio Classics bundle. Those plugins are essential!

    Who is your dream collaboration?

    Wolfgang Gartner.

    Of all the tracks you start to work on, what percentage actually make it to completion?

    5%. I completely finish 25-35% of the tracks I start, and about a quarter of those end up getting released.

    How did you get involved with Grooveshark and why do you use it?

    I got involved with Grooveshark by doing one of those takeover hours! I’ve been using Grooveshark since my early college days and it blew my mind how I could listen to all the music I wanted online!! The social aspect of Grooveshark is my favorite. The live chats, sharing.. etc. There is no better platform for sharing music with my fans.

    If you could give 1 tip to artists starting out right now, what would it be?

    Don’t try to be your favorite producer. Take a little bit from all of your inspirations and create something your own.

    Milkman is debuting an exclusive mix and will be joined by special guest Kait Weston today on a special Broadcast. Join us to listen in and you can ask him your own questions in the live chat. Hope to see you there!
