Yesterday I received an email from a DJ named The Kids Are Radioactive promoting his new tracks. I gave them a listen and actually pulled one for this weeks Remix Rehash (coming tomorrow). Then a few hours later I noticed original email had grown a little tail of replies. You see, TKAR had failed to BCC the massive list bloggers he had sent his stuff to and the astute bunch of smart ass music nerds we be had picked up on this and had begun bantering. It began with talk of the weather at our various international locations but quickly became a crazy thread of pretty cool dialogue. Soon it spread to twitter, tinychat, spreadsheets and a facebook group (of course). Now August 18th has been declared Music Blogger Day. The play by play of today's epic email thread has been reported really well by a number of the folks on the list Sheenabeaston and The Music Ninja are two worth checking out. Clearly TKAR didn't anticipate this kind of ripple effect when he mistakenly hit cc instead of bcc but after today's insanely fun rush of blogger bonding I can't help but tip my hat to him. So, I give you his tracks and hope you go give them each a little Hypem love.
Ra Ra Riot - Can You Tell (The Kids Are Radioactive Remix)
I think this is going to be the beginning of some interesting new music blogging adventures...
