WHITE_LINE Back in business

27 March 2013

After more than a year resting, recuperating, and taking stock of life, the universe and everything, I have decided to take WHITE_LINE reviews on once more. I am going to greatly scale things down, so please be aware that not everything I get sent will be reviewed, and anything NOT remotely classifiable as minimalism will get passed over. However, anything exceptional may get a mention. I will be concentrating my efforts on labels great and good, but will alos have a keen eye our for burgeoning new talent, and up and coming labels, as well as great minimalist visual art.

I do hope that all my friends out there will be checking out the site, and please do send stuff along when you are able. I will make a point of reviewing a couple of pieces that I’ve got hold of recently, just to get the ball rolling, and we will see how things go from there.

Hello again!

Mailing address for materials to be sent to:

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.
