In the past 21 years, the world has changed quite a bit. In 1995, DPRP was a main source of news on progressive rock. Artists and labels contacted us directly (I mean, with a personal email) and told us about the things that were going on. For the past few years, our News page has been little more than a shop window for everybody else to show their press releases, which are found and copy on numerous other sites and blogs.
We’re very proud at what our News page meant to people in the past, but we can’t see it adding anything anymore in the world today. Any kind of news can be found all over the ‘net. The time it takes for our team to collect, filter, sometimes rewrite, and post news takes a considerable amount of time, and we would like to use that time for something else: reviews.
DPRP will continue as, and focus even more, on being a site with reviews. That has always been the most popular section.
Thank you all for visiting and reading the news section and for the artists and organisations sending in news all those years.
The DPRP Team
