All of the themes below are open for submissions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be involved!
Feel free to suggest your own theme! My criteria is that it must relate to the experience of music, rather than its genre (eg ‘lofi’) or its practical use (eg ‘driving tracks’).
Check out our previous pieces (and the Deep Cuts mission statement) here.
