Ransom Note is a small, independent publication run by a team of five. We have been in operation for ten years and cannot recall a time as turbulent for the music community in all respects. As the world begins to reopen there is positivity and progress in sight for some. However, for others, like ourselves, that isn’t quite the case as of yet.
We operate independently, based on good will and with our own money. Ransom Note’s only significant and primary source of income otherwise comes from from festival and event partnerships. As such we have incurred significant losses and sadly now have some serious concerns about our stability and future as a publication.
We’ve always done our best to humbly represent our culture, focussing on uplifting those around us and working together to make things better. We strive to make music honest and representative of the hard working people who listen to us and read our publication.
We hope that you have found value in this and that we can continue to do so in the future.
If you believe in what we do, like the music and culture we represent and support, please consider subscribing to our Patreon campaign.
Thank you & love, it means a lot!

Ransom Note is an online music, arts and culture magazine. We provide a home for readers and writers with boundless enthusiasm, esoteric knowledge, fierce opinions and impeccable taste.
With our core team immersed in all aspects of dance music, we publish news, articles, and interviews covering the greatest in innovative, underground culture from across the globe. We offer regular, exclusive music and mixtapes from our favourite artists, and publish features shining a light on everything from the freshest new artists to the untold tales from rave history.
Alongside this we offer musings on film, books, life, and art, generating some context and controversy as an antidote to the reheated PR that clogs up the internet. Our office is fuelled by Tunnock’s Bars, cat memes, hangovers and a ridiculous, never ending love for our culture.
We're always interested in getting new writers on board – feel free to get in touch if you’ve got a story to tell.
With love until the grave,
