Outlook Festival Croatia adds Boddika, Bondax, Zed Bias, Congo Natty and more to their 2014 lineup

The Outlook Festival in Croatia has just announced several interesting artists to their lineup including Congo Natty feat. Congo Dubz, Daddy G (Massive Attack), Boddika, Bondax, Dub FX, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Gramatik, Newham Generals, Roy Davis Junior, Zed Bias, Phaeleh, Snakehips, Paleman and General Levy.
The lineup already looks absolutely massive with highlights such as David Rodigan, Goldie, Friction, MJ Cole, DJ Zinc and DJ EZ!

The festival that focus on bass music takes place 3th to 7th of September 2014 in Pula, Croatia. I’m really considering going myself since so many artists are right up in my alley, if I have some vacation time left that late in the summer.

In the promo video below it looks like the festival is a blast.

The 26 most popular posts on Core News in 2013

Happy Holidays to all Core News readers!

It is time to have a look at which posts that were most popular on Core News in 2013. The top 26 list is totally dominated by Essential Mixes, as you might expect. Some of these mixes are really great and I gotta say that 2013 has been a good year for electronic music.

Due to my 3 month hiatus from the site some mixes probably are missing and the list is a bit skewed after Core News lost quite a few readers from this break, so my wish to all Core News readers is to spread the site and posts that you enjoy around the interwebs to keep Core News growing again. Thanks 🙂

Status for Core News – take two

Hi all

First of, thanks for all the great support and feedback!

Even though I was gutted when Filesonic blew up, it has been weird for me to not be posting on Core News since the break, and I have to admit that lately I have been missing the blog.
So now I have decided to do a bit of posting, but in a smaller scale that are not so time consuming, and focus more on the music that I enjoy.

Right now I’m trying out Depositfiles as file host. It is not an ideal solution, and I might change if I find a better host. And who knows how long the hosts last these days…

Hopefully some of you readers will come back and enjoy the music we love 🙂

Status for Core News

Update: See this post for the latest news – https://corenews.me/status-for-core-news-take-two/

As you may have noticed Filesonic suspended downloading of files this weekend. This is probably due to Megaupload being destroyed by FBI.
Many other file hosts have fully or partially closed their services, and this will probably change the internet as we know and love.

Let us hope MPAA, RIAA, and all the other backward power houses in Hollywood (and worldwide) will go out of business soon. Their business models are ancient and they need to get up to date with the technology, instead of trying to cripple the internet.

For now Core News will take a break and observe what will happen next. Thanks for understanding and keep on loving good music.

Lack of posts on Core News

I’m on vacation in Northern Norway with very limited access to the net. For the next week there will most likely be no or very few posts on Core News. Meanwhile you can check the archives for great music that you might have missed. Core News will soon be back with all the regular shows.
