About Electronic Sound

Electronic Sound started as an iPad magazine app in March 2013. We secured our first investment a year or so later, which enabled us to build interest in what we were doing and switch from a quarterly to a monthly title. By March 2015, we were Number One in the iTunes listings for film and music magazine apps. Since July 2016, we have also been a print magazine and we are now on sale at 200+ branches of WHSmith and 67 Sainsbury’s stores, as well as selected independent newsagents.

We have published 24 issues of Electronic Sound to date and we have a social media following of almost 20,000. We have also won support from key electronic music figures and other celebrities, including Gary Numan, Karl Bartos and Wolfgang Flür (Kraftwerk), OMD, Martyn Ware (Human League and Heaven 17), comedian Matt Berry and Gadget Show presenter Jason Bradbury. Our print edition cover mount CD has meanwhile been played by radio DJs like BBC 6 Music’s Stuart Maconie and Mark Radcliffe.
