The purpose and ultimate scope of this site is still a little open however we do at least have a loose theme to hold it all together. In case you havent guessed already, a-Tunes is a contrived play off of iTunes. The ‘a’ stands for Asian. Yes, trite, we know but oh well you can shut your face =).
Although there are a ton of websites and blogs that show case all of the korean, japanese, chinese, whatever-else-nese music out there, there is none that I know of that also incorporates the growing number of asian-american artists here in the states.
This site in no way intends to be a one-stop-shop for all asian music news, showcases, media, etc. That would be simply impossible for us to attempt to cover. Instead a-Tunes will simply highlight anything and everything we find noteworthy. It’s editorial control at it’s best. We’ll see how this goes.
Anyways, without further ado we invite you to enjoy, spread the word, and support the music.
I go by GT aka Gifted Thought. I’ve been following and involved with the Asian American music scene since the early 2000’s. It’s been really exciting to see the community grow and expand and one day I hope that sites such as this won’t even need to exist because talent will speak for itself, regardless of ethnicity. Thanks for reading a-Tunes and let’s continue to support good music!

What it do party people? This is your girl Melody aka Music4urSoul and I’m proud to be part of the a-Tunes staff here. One of the good things in life is music that moves us and I have to say, I’ve never been prouder when Asian Americans stand up and produce some of the hottest tracks alive. Good music, good talk makes happy people and we hope to bring some light on the music that inspires us here. *bows* ^^
