The Past, The Present and The Future
Hello, friends as some of you may have heard we are at a crossroads here at The Minimal Beat... We have reached the end of our experiment with our blogger page and to be totally honest I never thought it in my wildest dreams it would become what it has! I started this blog about 3 years ago to share music that I like and enjoy and for a place for me to post my radio show that I host weekly on WLUW 88.7FM in Chicago for you guys to listen to. This site would be nothing without all of you guys coming back day after day reading and listing to the stuff we blog about and sharing it with your friends and I really mean that... So with that said, we have decided to break up with Blogger and move on to bigger and better things. In the coming days you will be seeing a brand new designed site linked to www.TheMinimalBeat.com with the same format however, we added some really cool new features that I know you guys will really enjoy. We will be monitoring the new site closely and continue to listen to what you guys have to say and do what we have to do to evolve and take the steps that we think we need to take to become the ultimate tastemakers in music... I seriously would not have been able to do this without the help of a few of people that I would like to acknowledge and say thanks you to! You guys have been nothing but supportive and I really enjoy working together and hope to continue to work together in the future... In no particular thanks Randy Nieto, Burlington Bar, Radio One Chicago, Jimmy Giannopoulos, Casey Meehan, Italians Do It Better, Jimmy Kaps, Stina Kaczmaryn, Isidro Hurtado, Ten Club, Chicago Mixtape, Natalie Burris, Lauren Cole, Tom Schraeder, Philip Stone, Danielle Gunn, Reakt, Empty Bottle, WLUW, Charleston Bar, DFA Records, Cimm Fest, Pitchfork and to those who I may have missed I really am sorry... Thank you all soooo much!
Peace and Love, Bill Ocean
