Haulix Weekly Update #60 – “Can you believe we have made sixty of these?”

Good afternoon, everyone! We hope this update finds you doing well and looking forward to the weekend ahead. We have been itching for Friday all week long it seems, and a lot of it is owed to up and comer Makonnen. A member of the OVO family, Makonnen has been climbing the urban charts for the past several months, and earlier this week he took his exposure to new heights with the release of his official video for “Tuesday.” It’s a track dedicated to those who are not afraid to party during the work week, but it plays just the same when the weekend rolls around. Pick up some good vibrations and discover what Makonnen has to offer:

Each and every Friday we like to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled programming to update and reflect on everything happening at Haulix HQ. We are far more than a music blog, as many of you already know, and posts like this give us an opportunity to share more our efforts with all of you.

If you have been following our last several updates then you no doubt understand just how busy our development team has been in recent weeks. From email design to profile creation, our dev team rarely take a moment to catch their breathes. We do not have any major updates to unveil this week, but I am allowed to tell you that there will be a new tool for members of the press available early next week. We’ll send out an email when it’s ready, but you can also count on seeing that update mentioned in next week’s recap.

On the blog side of things, this week was not unlike others in recent moment. We recorded a slew of new interviews, planned even more, and spent at least one full work day focused on transcribing conversations that took place over the last month. The result of all that hard work will soon be available for your entertainment, but until that time we have collected links to all our recent posts for you to review:

Music Industry Job Board (10/19/14)

If I had to choose one piece of content this week that cannot be missed I would have to say that the latest episode of ‘Inside Music’ takes the cake. I think our podcast has come a long way in its three months of existence, and it seems with each episode we are improving in every possible way. The latest episode is also the best, so please don’t let it pass you by.

That’s all the news and updates we have this week. Please check in over the weekend for an updated job board, as well as the potential for additional new content.
