The first edition of the revitalized Electronic Beats magazine will be hitting the shelves shortly with a fresh editorial approach from new editor-in-chief Max Dax and his team.
According to it’s motto "Conversations on essential issues", the new magazine will be in dialogue form and will feature a discussion between Max and curator Hans Ulrich Obrist on the limitations of natural resources. As Obrist emphasizes, sustainability today is about collectability: "A magazine that you keep, even if you move house, is sustainable."
The magazine has been revamped both graphically and conceptually and in order to achieve the goal of making each issue a collectable, the print team have introduced a host of new interviewers, including Glenn O’Brien, Arto Lindsay and Adrian Sherwood. You can also hear Neil Tennant‘s thoughts on the style of Bryan Ferry, and read in-depth pieces with Deadbeat, Kode9 & The Spaceape and many more.
Furthermore there will be additional content on-line to accompany the magazine features. Watch out for a YouTube battle between ourselves and Alec Empire, an in depth EB.TV feature on one of our favourite artists Planningtorock plus much, much more.
