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.

Reason for lack of posts on Core News

Some of you might have noticed a lack of posts on Core News during the last two weeks. The reasons for this are several including a broken modem, a broken ADSL line and malware-hell caused by old Java installs. Core News are more or less back on track now so expect to see the regular radio shows/mixes appearing once again as downloads.
I appologize for the slow period on the blog and I hope the bad streak is over!

Have a great summer filled with lots of good music!

Happy holidays from Core News – Big things in 2010

What a year 2009 has been for us music lovers! I have discovered tons of new talent this year and even experienced new styles of wicked music. I want to thank both old and new readers for making it so enjoyable to blog about the music I love, and making the blog grow bigger and bigger.

Core News is taking a 10 day holiday break as I’m heading to Northern Norway (you might see sporadic posts depending on my internet connection), but Core News will come back with massive mixes in the beginning of 2010. Next year I also want to make some changes to Core News like a much needed redesign of the blog, podcasts, exclusive mixes and more. If you haven’t already you can get updated by subscribing to the feed by a feed reader or email to get notified when the mixes start turning up again.

Head over to the Support section if you want to support Core News 🙂

Core News now on Facebook

I have finally made a page for Core News on the mighty Facebook. When I look at the statistics for Core News I can see that Facebook has become a pretty big traffic source so I thought why not make a page for all the Facebook-massive.

Core News summary for April 2009 plus mix of the month

Thought I would start a new section on Core News. At the end of each month I will make a post where I list all the mixes I have posted this month and I will choose my favorite mix of the month.

This month has been great for Core News with a new record for RSS subscribers with a peak at 384. It is very encouraging to see this blog grow and it makes it fun to post more good music. Thanks to everyone who follows Core News 🙂
Core News also changed file host this month from Rapidshare to Hotfile. The new file host has received some complaints as it seems to be a bit slower for some. I’ve talked with Hotfile and they are promising faster speeds when they get new servers, but for now I will post a Rapidshare mirror for Mary Anne Hobbs shows and maybe other files if needed. Btw, you can support Core News by registering at Hotfile.com by using this referral link if you need a file host.

Mix of the month for April 2009 on Core News
It has to be the Rob da Bank and friends show on 2009-04-20 where Martyn and TRG played two mixes. I love the blend of dubstep and other bass driven genres in these mixes. Absolutely wonderful!
Download the mix here and check the tracklist in the original post.

Status for Core News – Sorry for the long hiatus

Hi all!
Some of you might have noticed that has been nada updates for a long time on Core News. The reason is that I have moved from Northern Norway to the southeastern part (Nesodden in Akershus for those who know Norwegian geography). I have been pretty busy with the moving business and haven’t really got back into blogging yet. Hopefully I’m gonna start posting lots of good music ASAP (including Mary Anne Hobbs), but since I’ve been out of the game I would really appreciate information about new sets/mixes that you have made or found on the internetz. If you wanna send me a tip about new music, please use the contact form.

Oh yeah, since I now live close to Oslo I will be able to see more live breakcore, dubstep, sweet music than I have ever seen before. Maybe I will blog about these live shows if I can manage to be sober enough.
Bigup to everyone at The Villa when Ebola, Bong Ra, Kamerat Tord, etc played. It was wicked even tho Bong Ra almost destroyed my hearing 😉

-Thomas
