UPDATE: whereas we listed these as “six” acquisitions before, it’s really more of an advertising partnership with The Hype Machine. Go here for the TechCrunch story.
I know this isn’t live music related, but I’ve been a long-time fan of The Hype Machine and use it regularly to sample new music. I wonder what changes we’ll see (if any).
UPDATE 2) BuzzMedia has added today 6 major music blogs. PureVolume, PopMatters, Gorilla vs. Bear, The Hype Machine, Concrete Loop and RCRD LBL join Stereogum, Buzznet, Idolator and Absolute Punk in the web entertainment publisher’s music portfolio.
UPDATE: BuzzMedia tells Hypebot that HypeM, RCRDLBL and Pop Matters are partnerships. “All sites will retain their own editorial control.”
(Updated with TechCrunch confirmations and Hypebot corrections).
