Ministry Of Sound are to transmit a 230 hour continuous live radio broadcast this Easter, which will include two weekends of club nights from their South London headquarters.


Britain’s top music station Radio 1 confirmed this week that they’re teaming up with Serbia’s Exit Festival, broadcasting live from the Novi Sad event this July.

Exit’s International Director Paxton Talbot told Skrufff he’s delighted about the link-up, declaring ‘we feel very privileged to be working with Radio 1 and are looking forward to having them out as our very special guests.�


Ministry Of Sound Radio are to start broadcasting the Skrufff radio show every two weeks, following the successful launch of the show last year.

The show will run for 2 hours every other Monday evening from 18.00GMT, featuring live guests, DJ mixes and music from the alternative electro-disco-rock style Skrufff already champion through their press agency.

Last year, Darkness was nominated for 4 awards.  This year, we have Muse!  They are nominated for:
British Group / MasterCard British Album / British Rock Act / British Live Act Award

The Streets is also nominated for 3 awards: British Male Solo Artist / MasterCard British Album / British Urban Act

After all the madness of NYE and all those endless after parties and with the post Xmas credit card bills hitting your doorstep, like me you might be feeling a little too burned out & Skint to face clubland for a while. For this reason I did a little research into the trance radio this month so you can rave safely in the comfort of your own arm chair.  Just get a friend to flick the light switch on and off , get in a few bevvy’s and lets Av it couch potato style!!!


“The South American Music Conference will unite international prestigious producers, artists, musicians and other professionals. It is a unique opportunity to be part of one of the most important events in the worldwide electronic scene in a city that truly never sleeps.”

At the risk of sounding a bit tecky this month I’ve just gotta shout about the new thing going on the world of Djing.   Its the introduction of software mixing.  If you’ve recently been to see Dj’s like Sasha, Gabriel & Dresden and Jon 00 Flemming you might have wandered where all the vinyl went and why there not even playing CD’s anymore.  The answer is mixing just went virtual and now it can all be done on your lap top.
