The EDM Network Launches
October 24, 2012 at 2:53 PM (PT)
A group of Electronic Dance Music industry veterans have created THE EDM NETWORK, a professional EDM media outlet. The NETWORK, a series of sites highlighting each genre as its own entity as well as a piece of EDM as a whole, is the result of a collaboration between key media outlets tailored to meet the demanding needs of a highly specialized and segmented market.
"It's the first of its kind," CEO JASON MUIR said. "We are the first to acquire and put to use the resources necessary to adequately cover all relevant news."
Founder of DUBSTEP.NET, MUIR added, "EDM is still just a very small, close community. Our goal with the network is to bring the sound of EDM to as many people as possible, and make it much more popular."
"We are on the side of everyone that has an interest in the EDM industry," COO ETHAN BAER said. "Our network makes it possible for everyone in the industry to receive professional, high-quality coverage of their music and events," he said. "It's been a huge project, but finally all the pieces are in place."
They filled the Editor-in-Chief slot with ALBERT BERDELLANS, formerly of EDMSNOB.COM. "We believe that ALBERT is exactly the right person to fill this important role at our company," BAER said. "We're excited about what he brings to our team."
"I'm thrilled to be joining The EDM NETWORK team," BERDELLANS said. "ETHAN and JASON approached me with the opportunity just as I was wrapping up my previous project, and the opportunity to be a leader in this venture was very exciting. With the combination of the resources at our disposal and the experience of our team members, our outlet is going to do great things for EDM," BERDELLANS said.
The network's flagship website, DUBSTEP.NET, already receives approximately one million clicks per week. It is expected to swell even further with its newly revised design, introduced today.
The network will continue to introduce new sites until the end of 2012, including HOUSE.NET (which is counting down its launch here), TRANCEMUSIC.NET, ELECTRO.NET and several others.
