Well it looks like we made it.... one year at least. Thanks to all of you who have been following the site and supporting, we have grown an incredible amount over the last twelve months and look forward to kicking more ass in 2013.
In honor of us turning one, we had a little gathering at the spectacular AV in Hollywood and invited some of our closest friends, colleagues and merrymakers to celebrate with us.

The night kicked off with an hour-long reception to celebrate EMI's awesome new project called Electrospective and our upcoming partnership with them.
Jason Bentley hosted our little reception and announced his new radio/interview projects where he chats some of the pioneers of electronic music, as well as some cotemporary acts. In his words “Documenting electronic music is not only fun, but it's important. This project brings life to artists that people who are just now catching on to electronic music need to know about.” Or something like that, we were drinking so cut us a break.
With special guests like Moby, Paul Oakenfold, Borgore, Junkie XL, we had some EDM culture royalty on hand as well.
Big tip of the hat to the DJs: Posso, Colette, Photek, U-Tern from Oliver, Destructo, Cooper Saver and Sam Hiller for doing their things on the CDJs (can't say 1's and 2's anymore now can we).
Big props to Angelo at EMI Cap and his team, the amazing Magnetic staffers (who do it out of love for the music) and our great promotional partners Wantickets, Red Bull, Label Engine and Monday Night Social.
Magnetic photographer Michael Melwani was there to capture it all. Here are some pics to prove it... and yes, we are already planning our holiday party, watch out.
