Remaining anonymous is important to the founder of Headphone Commute, one of the most influential independent magazines covering electronic, experimental and instrumental music. This anonymity affords the mysterious ‘HC’ the luxury of staying true to the writer’s opinion and acts as a safeguard to prevent the ego getting in the way of the one thing that counts: music. After 6 years, 500 reviews and over 200 interviews, HC decided to expand and contribute to PopMatters. HC is currently an official media partner for Songkick Detour, Decibel Festival and Mixcloud.
