Next Level, Vol. 1 No. 1
Okay, so here's the deal ...
I made this magazine -- called Next Level -- as a means through which to compile all the "stuff" that I write about on the blog.
I'll admit that I'm not always on, I'm not always writing about something meaningful or even good. Next Level is supposed to be the tool that you all and I use to slog through all the music around us.
I think in recent years there's been too much of a push for immediate electronic information. I think in order to actually process it all, you need something solid in front of you.
How do you learn history? No through blogs and RSS feeds, but through text books. How do you unearth movements and scenes and collective styles? Not through fluid media, but through thoughtful articles, reviews, and books.
Next Level, I hope, will guide us all through the scenes and styles and vivid life that's all around us.
If you'd like to help in any way, shape or form , please email me. Until then, enjoy volume one, issue one.
