Pass The Mic: Record Labels and Artists on 2010
Pass The Mic: Record Labels and Artists on 2010


Another year ends, and another Scene Point Blank year-end feature rolls around. This time though we're firing on all cylinders - the site has relaunched, we've recruited new staff, and we've spoken to a record number of participants for our annual Pass The Mic report for 2010 - 50 bands, labels and industry contributors have offered their thoughts on the past twelve months in music for our humble webzine.

This year we asked our subjects about their favorites of the past year; their musical memories of 2010, things they're excited about for 2011, and questions about the future of CD, vinyl, word-of-mouth and more. Read on for an insight about the last year from the other side of the stage.

New this year: a handy jump menu below each article so you can skip to different writeups. Enjoy!

The less said about 2021 so far the better, right? We won't rehash the political chaos, the ongoing climate crisis, the billionaire space race and, of course, the C-word (Covid-19 – what were you thinking?). Instead, we'll focus on the music. Here are a set of lists by our staff … Read more

Music / Only Death Is Real • July 6, 2021
