Hello. As you may have heard, big things are afoot here at Josephmark. Ever since our humble beginnings in a garden shed (yup, it's been all glamour from day one), we've worked towards partnering with those who are creating meaningful and far-reaching ventures. As our ongoing work makes that vision a reality, some of our rituals are changing.

One consequence of which, is that we'll be less able to regularly reveal what we’ve been up to (terribly enigmatic of us, we know). That's why – from the next 20sixth onwards – you'll only hear from us when we're bursting to tell you something. For now, we’ll reveal all we can about the partnership with a certain social network…

A screenshot of the MySpace video on Vimeo

It feels like every man, woman and child has seen the tantalising Myspace teaser from our Breeder brothers and sisters, tweeted to the world in September by Mr. Timberlake himself.

In case you missed it, the video shattered preconceptions and whipped new Myspace anticipation to fever-pitch. The reception has been overwhelmingly positive – think journalistic high-fives from the most diverse of publications. The teaser's release gave the world its first look at the vision Josephmark and Myspace have been bringing to life for the last year or so, and we’re delighted to see the fruits of our partnership be so fantastically well received.

For us, this is not simply another social media or music website; it’s about artists connecting with their fans in an environment that supports and celebrates not just their art, but the relationship we have with it; it's about returning to the true heritage of Myspace – the experience of discovery, falling in love with a new band and sharing it with your friends. We're super excited about what's to come and we hope you like it. Watch this (My)space for more…
