Haulix Weekly Update #137: “Isn’t it nice we hate the same things?”

Hello, people of Earth. We hope this update finds you healthy, happy, and able to avoid the harsh heat wave currently plaguing our nation. The last few days have been unusually hot, especially for us here in Minnesota, but our team has managed to stay cool thanks to our constant presence in our air conditioned office. If you do not have AC at home we highly recommend visiting a library, cinema, or restaurant and enjoying their cool air. While you consider your options, watch this:

As I mentioned above, each and every weekend 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.

Development news:

We are so close to unveiling the new Haulix. We know we have said that roughly fifteen times in the past, but we have never meant it more than we do right now. The new Haulix is real, and our entire team has seen it in action. We’ve even begun showing clients some of the possibilities. For example, check out this mock promo we pieced together just last night:

Not too shabby, right?

We are keeping the launch date of the updated platform under wraps just in case something comes up, but suffice to so we hope to be pushing things live within the next couple weeks. Again, we have certainly said all this before, but we have never been as close to going live as we are right now. We promise, you only have to wait a little bit longer.

Blog news:

The focus of our outreach this week has been our podcast. We released two new episodes of Inside Music in recent days, and each showcases a unique perspective on this crazy business. The first, with Matt Halpern, tells of what it’s like to be a successful metal band. The second, with Mod Sun, captures the life of a rapper on the rise and all the challenges such a person faces on their journey to global recognition. We are very proud of these episodes, and we hope you find time to enjoy them in the days ahead. If you missed anything as of late, especially our podcasts, please head over to our archive and catch up ASAP.

That is all we have for today. Enjoy your weekend, everyone!
