As you MAY have noticed, I haven't posted for a while now....for a lot of reasons which I don't find necessary to mention. Anyway I decided to put Stoned Sun Vibrations on hiatus and concentrate my efforts to Downtuned Magazine ('n' Radio). Many of you probably know that Downtuned Mag is dedicated to the Greek heavy rock scene but since I've started Downtuned Radio too, I'm thinking of including posts about releases from all over the world. Apparently I'm going to keep a ratio but we'll see how it'll evolve.
From now on, you can find me on Downtuned Mag. And for any bands interested in reviewing/including them in radio's rotation etc., you can come in touch with me through the contact form over there. As I wrote above. I'll try to keep a ratio and at least in the beginning I'll try to "promote" mostly "smaller", more independent bands that deserve your attention.
So I want to thank each and everyone of you out there who supported, read, promoted and helped this blog. Also a big fat thanks to all the bands which helped SSV in their own way.
That's all for now folks! Thanks again! Maybe SSV will be back someday. Or maybe Downtuned will become better than SSV.... Who knows.
Be well and stay heavy!
PS: Rock Trips Mixtapes will be back soon.... They'll be the only thing posted from now on. Perhaps some other personal comps too.


Some thoughts...

I'm thinking for quite a long time now to set up a web radio. The initial thought was to find a station to make a show but it proved quite difficult in my area. In Greece while there are a great number of web radios, none of them play the music I'm trying to support through this blog. Since now I've found a couple of friends who are interested in playing some tunes (and help me with the expenses) and I believe that I'll find some more.

The plan for now is to set up the web radio which will be broadcasting 24/7 all these let's say downtuned stuff and some shows in a weekly basis. Of course I'm open to broadcasts of music that isn't widely promoted (eg. rock'n'roll, funk or anything fitting the experimental genre). Most of the shows will be Greek speaking but I intend (and want) to have guys from other countries too, either in permanent basis or having some guest shows. I believe it will be a good way for someone to promote his local scene too.

I'm not sure if this is going to happen but I'll give it a try hoping I'll find some positive feedback. So if anyone interested, you are welcome to contact me through the blog's email. Also if anyone knows any good hosting plans (cause I've done some research but still chaos rules my mind), drop me an email too. I'll appreciate your help!

  4. good idea! I also think to make radio from my big jam collection. IMHO easest way to broadcast is to create an account on http://www.live365.com, download their software, move all your songs to that program, shuffle files and turn on broadcasting
