XLR8R, the highly-influential electronic music and culture magazine is celebrating its 100th issue this month. The realm of electronica can be intimidating to outsiders (like me) because of all the sub-genres, micro-niches, artist aliases, and vast amounts of material to filter. Since 1993, XLR8R, in print and online, has been my tour guide of choice when I dip into this musical subculture. Reading it is like having a trusted friend take you on a tour through the best boutique record store in the world. Congratulations to publisher Andrew Smith and his talented co-conspirators!
