Hello and welcome back after a summer break! The people at subradar needed a bit of vacation, but are now back at full speed. During the summer there has been some new features added to the site. One is a new filter functions that allows you to search by the best selling, recently added and off course label and artist as before.

Hello all, its been a while since our last posting in this column. Just want to inform everyone that things are going great and that more new people are finding their way to subradar and getting their hands on fresh-new music.
