To all readers of rekkerd.org, I want to wish you all a blessed and music-filled 2014!

Best wishes for 2014!

The 8th year of rekkerd.org has been another busy one. No less than 4,323 blog posts were published in 2013. Since I don’t usually work weekends, that’s an average of about 16 posts a day!

I want to thank you for your encouragement, feedback, heads up on news and deals, financial support and other contributions, participation in contests and giveaways, and just checking out at this place.

Also, many thanks to the developers who send in their press releases, and for providing me with products for testing or reviews. The same goes for all advertisers and affiliates who help me cover all the costs of running the blog.

Hope to see you all again in the New Year!

Cheers,
Ronnie

rekkerd.org — 20,000 posts in (almost) 8 years

20,000 posts!

Last week, I noticed the number of published posts in my dashboard was getting close to the 20,000 mark.

This blog officially launched June 28th, 2005, so in 10 days it will be 8 years old. It started with a single post in June, 2005, followed by 6 more in August of that year, and 19 the next month, all the way up to no less than 365 posts in May 2013!

And there you have it, you’re looking at post #20,000 right now. I know it doesn’t look very special, but to me it is!

I’d like to thank all readers, contributors, and sponsors, for making this blog a wonderful thing to do.

Cheers!
Ronnie

365breaks: 365 days of beats and breaks – End of the year, end of blog

Marcin Cichy at pluginaudiomastering

Marcin Cichy of Skalpel (Ninja Tune) and plugaudiomastering wrote in to let us know his 365breaks project is coming to an end.

About 365breaks:

Every day I will compose/produce (time is limited to 15 minutes for each loop) and upload here one drum break in CD quality format.

It’s simple – use it the way you want it. all files are copyrights free.

As a final contribution to the project, on new years eve Marcin will upload a track by STEINSKI (www.steinski.com), made out of 365breaks sounds.
