I’ve been getting this question a bit recently in some emails so I decided to address it on Twitter this morning and also here. The question was simply why I’m behind other music blogs in posting tracks. Now, to understand this question fully you have to look at what exactly posting tracks means to people. To me, it means posting the full track when it gets released so you, the listener, are able to decided whether or not you’d like to buy it. For a lot of other music blogs it means posting the “preview” of the track usually a few weeks before the release.
This “preview” business just seems bullshit to me and I feel like it actually hurts sales. From my personal experience I see and hear tons of previews every week for tracks that won’t be released until weeks from now. And you know what most blogs do? They blog the preview and not the actual release. What good does that do the artist except hype the track? Sure hype is good some times, but if you miss the release and forgot like I have many times in the past it becomes a bit irritating.
That’s why you’ll almost never find previews on Chemical Jump. With a few rare exceptions (like the Kavinsky video I posted, I’ll obviously post about it again once the LP is released)
Anyway, onto the music for this week!

Also to celebrate 100,000 followers on Twitter, Hardwell has given away a HUGE bootleg pack of his. 19 pretty amazing tracks which I’m sure you’ll have use for in your next DJ set.
