Hype Machine Don’t Take No Mess

hype-machine-logo.jpgRecently it has been reported that certain artists on the blog Hype Machine were creating fake profiles to boost the popularity of their own music.  When Hype Machine found out they not only made membership access more stringent, but even called out some of the guilty parties (oh noz!)  with a published list that can be found here.  Props to Hype Machine for providing a great website and for keeping it clean – their commitment to integrity will certainly help them in the long run even if they’ve pissed off a few people with this list.
