It is with regret that I have to announce that I am scaling down review activity as of Mid September. Due to over-riding personal commitments, and a busy schedule with recording my own material as FOURM and LEVEL, and as WHITE_LINE EDITIONS [ http://fourm.wordpress.com]

 I may come back to reviewing in the new year, but this is yet to be announced.

I am deeply grateful to all the artists and labels who have been gracious enough to send me their precious material, and who have trusted my humble opinion, and I will continue to listen out for new works, and possibly even buy your CD’s in order to stay in the loop. If you feel that you still wish to send material, then I am happy to give you a brief mention on the site, with a few poignant words to help promote good work, but I must stress, it will be BRIEF!   I will also be happy to exchange my own works with yours should I have sufficient spares, and should I feel that the exchange is appropriate, but please do not expect a full review.

As ever, I am actively promoting my own recordings and I talk about great artists all the time anyway. I wish you all a great new year.

About whiteline1

WHITE_LINE was set up three years ago, in order to play and promote the work of artists and musicians working under the banner of "minimalism", in all its many guises. This has led to a regular and highly successful mix slot on the Garden of Earthly Delights radio show in the UK, and guest appearances on Resonance FM (frequenzen show). We now aim to extend the remit of the mix slots by reviewing (as often as possible) material that encapsulates and crystallises the minimalist ethic, and hopefully we'll be leading artists and audiences alike towards a deeper appreciation of this and other marginalised genres. I welcome your comments, and criticisms, and would love to hear from labels and artists who would like their work showcased on the show, or reviewed here. We regret that due to time constraints, we cannot review everything that is sent to us, but will endeavour to give exceptional work an "honourable mention" at the very least, and links to quality sites that we think worthy of mentioning. I am trying to support labels and artists as much as possible by promoting their work, not least because I am a stereotypical "struggling artist" myself, but also because there are so few younger artists entering this particular scene, and there is a danger of it becoming the sole domain of a handful of forty somethings who really ought to be doing something better with their time! Having worked for most of the more reputable underground magazines in the early 90's, I was never afforded the luxury of taking time and care over reviews, as deadlines and column space were always hanging like the sword of Damocles over me. With WHITE_LINE, I have the luxury of being able to review when I have time, and I am receptive to a particular mood, and hopefully this will reflect in the quality and length of some of the reviews. If you like what you see, please link to me to encourage more traffic through the site, and cross promote whatever is happening out there. Address for promotional material: 45 Drovers Walk Spring Park, Kingsthorpe Northampton NN2 8BB UK
