If you’ve read our manifesto, you may have seen that one of the central tenets of the DOGma is “Aside from any one song or artist or genre, the reason we do what we do will always be because we love music. We love shaping sound so that it makes our hair stand on end, so it makes us smile or cry or scream or jump up and down like lunatics”
That much is true. And what we love more than most things, is discovering new music. As music lovers, we treat the musical world as explorers do the Earth, eager to unearth those hidden gems, discover new directions of sound design, or encounter strange new poly-rhythms that make us tap our foot in peculiar time-signatures, while, simultaneously, our kidneys dissolve and begin to leak out of the ears of a mythical pan-dimensional being that watches over the audiological world.
What we mean is, we like to hear things we haven’t heard before. We like to be entertained, inspired, distracted and engaged by the sounds that people are making; by the sounds that you are making. To that end, Red Dog Music is proud to introduce the Sunday Spotlight!
If you want to let us know about the music you make, and let tens of thousands of Red Dog Music blog readers, social followers, email subscribers and more know about the music you make, then this is how you do it:
Copy and paste the questions into an email, answer them, attach a picture or two and fire it across to spotlight [at] reddogmusic.co.uk and we’ll start getting them featured on the blog (on Sundays, hence the name) and spreading the good word! Of course, please make sure that you don’t have any cheeky unauthorised samples or similar in there!
1. Hello! Who are you, where are you from and all that good stuff.
2. Tell us a bit about the music you make.
3. When did you start and what made you want to start making music?
