Telekom Electronic Beats

The last hundred days…

How are you? Good? We hope so; we’re feeling pretty good ourselves. Today is the 100th day since was given a visual overhaul. The thought behind the redesign: the classic feel of newsprint, presented in a browsable day-to-day format with all the archivable ease of digital. Since August 8th we’ve been playing around with new ideas and columns, and the feedback has been quite encouraging. For over a decade now Electronic Beats has presented what what we consider some of the best in international electronic music. At we’re aggregating the voices of Squarepusher, James Blake, Bryan Ferry, Hot Chip, Pet Shop Boys, Hercules & Love Affair, Grimes, New Order, and all the other artists who have become a part of the EB family, as well as the voices of world-wide writers, bloggers and artists—effectively creating a unique news hub.

Not only that, we’re still bringing you a selection of diverse and ever-expanding columns, interviews, radio mixes, exclusive premieres and more. The intellectual tastiness of Fast Food, Max Dax’s ongoing dialogue on restauranteering with Thomas Schoenberger, continues to be a pleasure for fans of good eating and good reading; meanwhile we’ll keep bringing you our essential purchases with Kaufen. Audioccult, our ongoing look at everything dark, magickal and/or amazing, grows weirder every week, and Eastern Haze is an essential guide for anyone looking to discover more underground forms of music from Eastern EU. That’s just the tip of the iceberg in our content-sea, but if you’re curious about what we’ve been up to in the last hundred days then we suggest browsing through the links below. There you’ll find our personal favorite selection of events, sounds and experiences we’ve brought you on And this is only the beginning…
