Hey all, most of you might remember 1337ology.com – my attempt (with the help of my friends n1njr, Kid Insanity & Khaotic Rage) at the first 24/7 online nerdcore only radio station. Something we did at 1337ology, which I’ve done a couple of times with TheCli3nt.com is end-of-the-year awards. There have been a lot of great releases this year, and I want to do it again. Only this time, I am thinking I will do it as a video cast instead of a blog post.
I hope all of you will participate. If this works out the way I envision it, I plan to make it a regular feature on TheCli3nt.com. And honestly, if you meet the eligibility requirements and believe in your music, why not submit your album for consideration this year?
