    Perhaps having 2 or 3 songs per day since there are around 170 artists. One a day won't even get to half.

    That's a good idea. This whole conception was just a harebrained thing I did myself on a whim last year, and we decided to see what we could do with that framework as a slightly more thoroughly conceived operation this year. So that's where the "Song of the Day" thing comes in. Since there's three of us, we could certainly ramp up our output, but we do all have jobs, and at least the other two collaborators have something resembling a life outside of that. Also, our goal isn't to get to every artist (and I'll say up front, we're going to miss a lot of EDM DJs), but we'll likely find more that strike us as worthy than the 84 our current format allows (and way more than the laws of physics will let us see in one weekend). We want to immerse ourselves in each artist to an extent that allows us to pick a song and write something related to it that's at least somewhat compelling and insightful (I'm speaking for others without their consent here, but fuck it, I think they agree). If we do it right, this will evolve significantly in the next three months, and my prediction is that we find a way to get at least a few more features in there.

    Thank you for the input kneuller!
