It's a new year and of course that means there is a new 'Blood Pack' Compilation. As you will have seen on Sunday, Vol. 4 has now been released for free via our bandcamp.
We've made a slight change this year and have made the release a pay what you want arrangement so we can try and raise a bit of money for DKMS (a UK charity that fights blood cancer).
So far the donations have been starting to come in and while you don't have to donate a penny if you don't want to, if you are feeling generous all we're asking for is a pound for this charity. We think it is a small price to pay considering we're offering you 28 tracks totaling 2 hours of music!
We've made all of the other previous releases pay what you want as well, so if you haven't got those you can either donate for each of them, or none of them, it's your choice. Our aim this year is to try and raise a modest amount to help this worthwhile charity, and your help would be greatly appreciated.
In other news, as I mentioned last month we're on the hunt for a few new regular contributors to add to our staff. If you're interested in doing some reviews or even just a monthly column, please contact us at email@example.com and we'll take it from there. What kind of person are we looking for? Well we're after people who are motivated, committed and eager to take the time to build up a list of PR and label contacts.

Finally in other news, I'd like to extend the invitation to established scene DJs, artists, and bands to contribute guest DJ mixes that we will host on Mixcloud. What we're thinking is a series of hour-long mixes showing off new and classic acts which we will feature on Mixcloud as well as the Intravenous Magazine website. If anyone is interested, please contact us at the above email address.
Right, that's just some of the wheels we want to set in motion this year. Hopefully the other things we have up our collective sleeve will be announced in the coming months. Until then, please enjoy the new (and previous) compilation albums, please donate, or at least share the link if you enjoy the album and keep a look out for our top albums of 2016!
