Vinyl on track to becoming a billion dollar industry, 40 million records are expected to be sold this year.
"The renewed interest in vinyl is forecasted to continue this year, according to new research by Deloitte and reported by the Financial Times. It is expected that sales will record double-digit growth for the seventh consecutive year. The consultancy predicts around forty million records will be sold, which along with sales of new turntables and accessories, could help the industry break the $1 billion mark for the first time since the ’80s."

An clear explanation of the controversial term 'world music':
"World Music by definition usually has a fairly traditional bias. Mosty music from other countries distinguishes itself in its essence from that of others, where modern pop music usually strives for global validity."
Eric van Domburg Scipio (Heaven Magazine)


An inspiring quote by Brian Eno talking about musical pieces of art:
“I talk to many painters, because I teach in art schools. I ask them: Why do you think that what you do ends at the edges of this canvas? Think of the frame. What frame are you working in? Not just that bit of wood ‘round the edge, but the room you’re in, the light you’re in, the time and place you’re in. How can you redesign it? I would say that to musicians too. I see them spending a lot of time working on the internal details of what they’re doing and far less time working on the ways of positioning it in the world. By ‘positioning it’ I don’t only mean thinking of where it could go, and where it fits in the cultural picture, but what else does it relate to?”
