NEWS AND UPDATES

10/11/2018 - Well I have good news and bad news. The good news is that I have added over 40 new 4DaFunk releases to complete the 4Dafunk catalog on the site! That brings the site's total listings to 1,640. I have also created a 4DaFunk Thumbnail Menu for them as well! Now for the bad news..I spent way more time on the the site this past month than I wanted to. As a result I am going to have to take some time away from the site. I am not sure when I will be back, but I do know I will be back! Next up on the to do list is to create all the listings for the Eye Records catalog, as there are over 100 listings missings, so its a BIG job.

The programming on the search engine is just about done, thanks to my friend Lewis. I have converted about 500 of the 800+ files to new format.
