About Abeano Music


Abeano Music began in Spring 2008 to celebrate the best new music coming out of the UK and The Rest of The World.

Between us we’ve posted exclusives for everyone from The XX to Vampire Weekend, Hot Chip to Shakira and been one of the first blogs to post about the likes of Wu Lyf, Jai Paul and Jay Electronica. We will try and keep this up in the future.

Ps. We’re always looking for new contributors.

If you feel you could contribute something please contact us at abeanomusic AT gmail.com . It’s the same address for any questions, or send us music. It’s not for tips about penis enlargement. We know about that already.
