Muzik Is The Answer

This is one of the biggest honours we’ve ever received – so much so that we had to add the extra ‘u’ in honour!
Blender magazine has just named Perezito to their “Powergeek 25” list.
Beyond rad!!!!
“The Powergeek 25” ranks the 25 most powerful and influential people in the web music business.
Says Blender editor-in-chief Craig Marks, ├óΓé¼┼ôMusic fans spend much of their day, if not their life, sitting in front of their computer, discovering and downloading music. But just who are the behind-the-scenes players who shape those experiences? Today├óΓé¼Γäós power brokers no longer work in the steel-and-glass towers of the traditional record business; instead, they├óΓé¼Γäóre tech geeks, bedroom bloggers and Silicon Valley visionaries.”
Pete Wentz came in at #25. Apple’s Steve Jobs landed the coveted #1 spot and Peepeerez came in comfortably in the middle at lucky #13.
