Changes to the site

lp4There are some changes to the site. There are also loads of titles waiting to be added to the site, written down on some pieces of paper next to my computer, but that will happen the next couple of weeks.

  • In the future, tagging the tracks with subgenres will be avoided as much as possible (“no, it’s tech house, not techno”). I’m not good at labeling tracks the right way, will mention genres as basic as possible. When clearly different from many other tracks within that genre, an extra word is added between brackets.
  • Instead of decades I will make use of clear music eras. Because 1999 didn’t sound like 1990, and because 2009 also didn’t sound like 2000. This change will add some extra nostalgia.
  • Sometimes, eras were hard to split, because of multiple musical movements. So there are extra sections for those not caring about ‘pre 9/11’ and ‘post 9/11’, for those missing some danceable 1986/1987 stuff in the 1988-1992 section, and also for those connecting 1991, 1992 and 1993 with each other.


Winter break

lp4This site is thinking about possible improvements to the site, and that’s the reason of a longer winter break than expected (till yesterday I promised to be back the 4th of Januari).

It’s hard to say when the next update will be online; I can’t put updates at the frontpage as long as the changes to the lists aren’t ready, because these things are connected with each other.
