For many years, Electronic Beats Magazine sought to highlight the unique voices of musicians and creators of all stripes. Under the leadership of editor-in-chief Max Dax and later, A. J. Samuels, the magazine’s three-pronged approach to journalism favored monologues, conversations and of course, some more traditional interviews. But for all its focus on narrative, its visual identity is also worth celebrating. Since 2011, we’ve accumulated thousands of original photographs, so as 2015 draws to a close, we thought it would be worth picking out a few of our favorites. Look back on the magazine’s final years below, and view part two of the gallery here.
