My name is Janno and I’m a seasoned techno nerd writing about old and new electronic music. Former member of Deka & Free tape-jockey team operating in Tartu, Estonia at the beginning of 1990s and now an occasional hobby DJ, at home and elsewhere.
After being an electronic music fan and scene activist since the beginning of 1990s, I started writing brief reviews for myself, around 2005. Thereafter started a blog in my native Estonian, before launching Terminal 313 in the beginning of 2010.
As from January 2015, I am going back to the roots, which means less posts about promos, more about my own collection. After running the blog for a while, I prefer to focus on the releases in my shelf.
I am very thankful to promo pools, labels and artists who are providing me with new music – on several occasions they have triggered a purchase of the actual record. However, there is a lot of mass productions in the market, I mean mostly everyday techno that works well in DJ sets but are not so inspiring to write a review about. Also, as an one-man operation, I am not able to cover too many releases. I will do promos also in the future, but will be more selective and act according to the principle ‘would I buy it?’
Vinyl promos are most welcome – I would pay the shipping cost to Estonia – and if you feel that you can provide me with physical promos, just ask for my address.
All posts tagged ‘promo’ mean that a label or promoter has sent me a full release for reviewing. All other posts are about the releases in my collection or based on publicly available streams.
Terminal 313 is not my job, this is my hobby, and I would like to have fun out of that – for anybody concerned.
My e-mail is info(at)terminal313.net.
