Groups and Pages

Hello world and welcome to week 17 of my weekly blog. This week let's talk about groups to pages, or to be more precise my Facebook group Synthopia & Skerat's Eclectic Podcasts, moving to my Facebook page Skerat's Synthtronica Podcasts. I began this transition about two weeks ago and if your are a member of the Synthopia & Skerat's Eclectic Podcasts group, you should have got an invite to join the Skerat's Synthtronica Podcasts Page. Why am I changing you ask? Hopefully for a better experience by using the page format, which most importantly will make it a lot easier for you all to share a lot of the great posts with the wider community. The group page which will still be active until the end of the year, unfortunately has limited functionality. I often had many of you telling me it was often difficult to share posts from the page, as it was too restrictive. As the whole idea of the group was to get all that brilliant music heard, it was time to make that work more effectively. This meant changing to a page format for easier sharing and also to make it easier to join the community. Okay have you joined the page yet? No!!! Well what are you waiting for get over to here and get posting and sharing :)

Okay once your finished your joining or posting and sharing you might want to check out what's happening in the scene this week:-

The guys from the Some Bizzare record label have sent me some details of Steven Jones & Logan Sky recent appearance at the annual Depeche Mode fan club convention in Tallinn, Estonia last week. The audience were treated to an hour long set filled with stunning projections by the guys plus a new track and DM covers. Click here for video highlights or here for the full length "Damned Don't Cry"

The label tell me the audience were, blown away by the guys and they have been invited back to next year's epic 25th anniversary!
