New website seeks ‘dance music archive’
Dance Music Archives by Electric Hawk, is a new website that seeks to document and archive the entire history of electronic music. This is great news for fans of DJ mixes, radio shows, and footage lost in old places. The site promises to be a concise and convenient one-stop-shop for all things EDM.
Andi Durrant will serve as chief librarian for the project. He was the founder of “This is Distorted”, an audio content agency that works to connect music, media, sports and entertainment to the consumer. As a longtime student of sound, Durrant will undoubtedly do a good job of bringing our favorites together in one place.
