Hard Format is on hiatus

Author: Colin | Published: 30/11/11

If you’ve enjoyed the website, please accept my apologies. I’m in two minds whether to continue with the site or not. My reasons are as follows:

I still believe in the importance of physical media, even if it’s becoming a niche area. I’m not a big fan of the ever-growing number of expensive special editions. I think the work of Second Language and Kraftwerk best represent the twin poles of what I love about music design.

All of the above doesn’t mean that Hard Format is over. I’m still thinking about it. I  have a few more posts to publish. In the meantime, I suggest you follow the site on Twitter/RSS/Facebook so you’ll get a notification of new posts. You should also read DJ Food’s blog and { feuilleton }, both great resources for intelligent and passionate commentary on visual matters, frequently music-related.

Thank you for reading.


  1. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique
    content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it
    appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any
    methods to help protect against content from being ripped off?
    I’d definitely appreciate it.

  2. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to know a lot approximately this,
    such as you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe
    that you just could do with a few p.c. to power the
    message house a bit, however other than that, that is great blog.
    A fantastic read. I’ll definitely be back.

  3. I pay a quick visit each day a few websites and blogs to read
    articles or reviews, except this website presents feature based content.

    I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my visitors would enjoy your work.

  13. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all
    is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog
    like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100%
    positive. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
