Long-running music mag The FADER is celebrating its 100th issue in a unique way: by becoming the first magazine to release their entire archives via BitTorrent. For Free.
The archives contain all 100 issues from the magazine's 16-year history.
It was founded in 1999 by Rob Stone and Jon Cohen. Current editor-in-chief Naomi Zeichner says: “To mark this milestone, we’re opening up our archives and offering 16 years of historic music reporting and photography to our fans for free. Through this partnership with BitTorrent, we’re giving longtime readers the chance to finally complete their collection of The FADER, and new readers will get an opportunity to see where the publication began. Looking back, it’s incredible to see that, as much as the magazine has grown and evolved, the core mission has remained the same: to reveal what’s next in music and culture, and to celebrate the lifestyle around it all.”
