The evolution of the format of choice

…from This is London music blog whilst mulling over the Klaxons’ Mercury Prize win:

“the remix, appended to some fashionable blog, is probably the form of our times, in much the way that the 7-inch single was in the 60s and the 12-inch LP was in the 70s.”

Interesting? why?

Well the difference with teh arrival of the remix on a blog is that the remix is usually distributed throughout the public i) outside of the record company’s control, ii) in a non-royalty paying form (i.e. copyright infringing post).
