One year of Pesto Community

Last Monday, the 11th of February 2008, we had a reason to celebrate: our Pesto Community, the forum board for Pesto fans turned one year.

Although 83 registered members may not seem such a huge number, it's the hard core of Pesto addicts that posted nearly 500 articles within that year. The majority of those posts were DJ mixes of excellent quality. Taking a look at the server statistics though, the number of non-registered users embracing the possibilty to download hi quality Deep House mixes is an estimated 300 times higher. Our contributors come from all over the globe and have the same vibe in common.

Due to the cross-promotion of the community on last.fm, myspace and other social networking sites, the Pesto Community has established itself as a reliable source for House heads seeking for first class DJ mixes, a place to communicate with people thinking alike and a forum to exchange thoughts and compliments.

What's next there? You might have heard of the PestoMix guest slot competition that's running until 20th February 2008. In the future, the community will be the place to discover more talent and we'll make sure that more DJ talent gets heard. We'll also launch a section in brief that is going to deal with the technical side of things: production tutorials, mix tricks, software recommendations - whatever comes to your mind. We'll have more exclusives and previews on upcoming stuff for registered members. Please keep in mind that registering for the community is free, fast and I can assure you that your email adresses are as safe with us as on any other form you can complete on the Pesto pages. We hate spam as much as you!

On behalf of Pesto Music and all its affiliated artists, let me take the chance to thank you for contributing and for making the Pesto Community such a nice place! So many of you have supported our artists in their mixes and your support is priceless and greatly appreciated!

Many happy returns to the Pesto Community!
