WRITERS / CONTRIBUTORS WANTED

Chain D.L.K. is looking for RELIABLE AND ENTHUSIASTIC WRITERS interested in writing CD/vinyl/digital reviews and possibly doing interviews.

We need people who LOVE MUSIC and are PASSIONATE about music and who enjoy writing about it. We’ve been doing it since 1994 but it’s getting harder and harder to keep up with the volume of releases and we are trying to support everyone in this great scene!
Contact Marc Urselli from the Contact Page if you are interested.
Thank you
