Subscriber Special: Below The Radar Volume 1
With next month’s September issue, The Wire launches Below The Radar, a major new series of free download compilations that will be made available exclusively to all the magazine’s subscribers worldwide
Compiled and produced by The Wire staff, each volume of Below The Radar will act as a showcase for all manner of underground, outsider and experimental sounds.
The first volume in the series will be released to subscribers on 6 August to coincide with the publication of next month’s September issue. Subsequent volumes will be issued on a quarterly basis.
Here’s how it will work... All subscribers will be issued with a url for a dedicated Below The Radar webpage, plus a user name and password. Once logged in to the webpage, they will be able to download all the tracks on the compilation. The webpage will also include a set of sleevenotes that will contain biographies and images, links and contact information for all the featured musicians. Logged in subscribers will be able to view the sleevenotes online and/or download them as a pdf file.
