As most of you know, I’ve been running Echosynthetic by myself since we launched at the start of the year. The site has grown from humble beginnings to what I can proudly say is a legitimate voice on the synth scene. That being said, it has grown to the point that I need help.
Our two new additions are Chris Frain (of Pattern Language) and Tristan, a friend of mine from Sweden. In Chris I found a kindred spirit who has the same deep seated love for the origins of synth based music, old movies, and the video games of yesteryear. Tristan brings a wealth of information from a completely different part of the world, has opened my eyes to countless bands I wasn’t aware of, and is going to bring a fresh new perspective to the site.
The addition of these two writers to the Echosynthetic team is going to work on two levels. 1.) It’s going to take some of the writing load off of me personally. I’ve not missed a single day posting since the site kicked off. In fairness, it’s a standard I set for the site and for myself, but it’s going to be nice to share the load, even if it’s just a little bit. 2.) New voices and new opinions are a good thing. Chris and Tristan are going to bring a lot to the table that I never would have thought about. That’s nothing but a positive, and more of what you already love about the site.
So, in closing, I’d like to thank all of you for the continued support. I hope that with these new additions we will be providing an even better product for you to enjoy. Without you there would be no Echosynthetic and I keep that in mind every single day.
