Why subscribe?

Written by Shawn Reynaldo, First Floor is a newsletter about electronic music and the culture / industry that surrounds it. The free version goes out on Thursdays, and is essentially a digest that includes news, links to interesting articles and a sizable batch of new track recommendations.

First Floor also includes long-form content (mostly interviews and essays), which are published on Tuesdays and are first made available exclusively to paid subscribers. (Those pieces are subsequently opened up to the public, but only for a limited time, usually 24 hours. For unlimited access to this content—and the entire First Floor archive—a paid subscription is required.)

Either way, whether you’d like to be a paid or free subscriber, First Floor can be delivered right to your inbox. Sign up now.
