Name: Steve Mizek
Mizek, who spends his days as an advertising analyst at Market Access International, approaches Little White Earbuds with the same eye for detail he displays during business hours. He started modestly, offering up thoughts on whatever he was digging at the time. Now the site sees contributions from more than 20 writers and publishes multiple posts daily. The Little White Earbuds team features at least seven album or singles reviews a week and boasts a weekly podcast from an electronic artist or DJ. While Mizek describes Earbuds’ focus as “everything from disco to dubstep,” it does have a heavy techno slant. The site has actually become so robust as a blog, it almost sells it short to call it such. “I try to look at it from the perspective of a website and less as a guy posting when he feels like it,” Mizek says. His model has a lot in common with popular electronic music e-zine Resident Advisor, and if Mizek keeps up the good work, RA is going to have some heavy competition on its hands.
