New electronic music community site

Crossfader is an initiative from none other then Microsoft. Crossfader is an online community for the global electronic artist. Microsoft is building this tool to help you connect with people who share your love for creation, great music, technology and modern culture. They are just getting started and have several cool features in the works as they move through the beta stage. So join in the fun – register, set up your profile, build your blog, watch some video and start posting in the forums.

Crossfader is still in beta form, so there’s not much there yet, though the focus is clearly on DJs and electronica. There’s a section called “The Knowledge” that will eventually have information on production, performance, and business. The descriptions get a little glib (“tips on workin it”? “tweakin it”?), but there are some interesting features, like built-in community blog features and in-line music player.

Check it out and maybe join Crossfader at
