SideLine Magazine launches 'FACE THE BEAT VOL.1'
SideLine Magazine launches 'FACE THE BEAT VOL.1' free download compilation... on Facebook only!
It's with great pleasure that SideLine can announce you the first volume in the "Face The Beat" series! This massive compilation is available now on the SideLine Facebook page www.facebook.com/side.line.magazine for FREE download (either song per song or as one ZIP file).
To make it a true Side%2DLine Facebook page release, we focused on acts active in the social graph of the SideLine Facebook page at www.facebook.com/side.line.magazine . That's right, the bands come from the 38.000+ people that follow our news on Facebook on a daily basis. As such it's the first Facebook compilation to see the light of day in this scene and the first overall on such a scale.
We received no less than 1258 submissions (minus the ones that didn't fit the bill so to speak)! From those we picked 50 tracks (plus 5 bonus tracks) from bands that according to us deserve your attention. Note that the compilation does not have an A to Z tracklist, instead we invite you to use the shuffle feature as much as possible to discover this material from different angels.
Compiler Bernard Van Isacker: "The idea behind the compilation is to create a platform through which we can offer our readers access to bands that they have often never heard of before. We already bring news on a very 'own' way, it will be the same with this compilation, so expect bands you never heard of with an own sound. We were lucky enough that several labels agreed to join in to push this compilation and invest in the new breed of bands by giving us tracks from their catalogue as well. The result: a solid 55%2Dtrack long voyage through the musical minds of our Facebook page fans. One thing is sure, Facebook is ready for being used as a music platform, this compilation is the proof."
The artwork was executed by 4611525, an upcoming graphic artist who has been doing work for several high shot companies and who emerges from the UK underground art movement. His design is pure, clean and to the point. Exactly what we wanted. Since posting the artwork on Facebook we have received praises and criticism. That is the spirit of Side%2DLine.
