Independent Platform for electronic music
About the project
UrbanstyleMag was launched in February 2008, as an independent bimonthly cultural magazine. Through its press and online publications, USM hosted dozens of artists from all over the world and achieved to maintain a strong presence in the field. Moreover, the unique aesthetic of its graphic designs, made every issue special and individually remembered, up to now.
Counting 10 years from its initial release, USM is coming back, this time online, with a fresh thematic orientation in electronic music. The key research area of our editorial team is how electronic music has developed through the years, plus its interaction with the urban environment and the people.
Since 2008, USM, has been the only Greek media that has supported, as a communication sponsor, big events of the electronic music scene in Europe, like Amsterdam Dance Event, Time Warp, etc., including domestic festivals, such as Reworks Festival and Blend Athens. At the same time, there have been many exclusive interviews of well-known artists, like John Digweed, Maceo Plex, Marco Carola, Umek, Ralph Lawson, Monika Kruse, Solomun, Anja Schneider, Dan Curtin, MissKittin, Minilogue, Mihalis Safras & more.
USM's team continues to wander around the world, attending both “major” and “minor” events, with the aim to present to its readers, first handed material and the latest news from the field of electronic music.
