Introducing Big Black Headphones

We here at Little White Earbuds are known for bringing you reviews of the hottest new techno/house singles; but until now our purview has been limited to the present. With Big Black Headphones, a new column we’re starting, LWE’s reviewing staff has the chance to look back at oft-overlooked releases that had our hands in the air in years past. We want to see how once vital singles stack up in today’s crowded, fast paced world and trace the threads connecting the past and the present. Please join us in taking time to remember the past which laid the foundation for where we are today.

Introducing LWE’s Podcast Competition

LWE’s podcast series is a favorite feature of the site for readers, artists and staff alike, one of the few throwbacks to the halcyon days of our mp3 blogging youth. But it also means we rarely post mixes unless they’re part of the series, generally leaving it to blogs like mnml ssgs, Random Circuits, Infinitestatemachine […]

Taking a break from techno/house, LWE’s editor in chief offers a few thoughts on the election.

That may seem excessive on the face of things, but it’s proven a great […]

Introductions are in order (the Jeremy Cohen edition)

Hello, My name is Jeremy and I’m addicted to electronic music. I’ve lost my job, family and home due to my excessive and unrelenting desire to purchase, download, compile, list and argue about techno and house. My roommates could no longer bear to listen to me nitpick about the production on the latest Ricardo Villalobos […]

Introductions are in order (the Todd Hutlock edition)

Greetings all — I’m guessing my name will be familiar to at least a few of you, as I’ve been at this writing game for a little while now. I used to be an editor at Alternative Press magazine (yes, I know, I know…), then at Stylus, where I was also a contributor to the […]
