of GREAT MUSIC
( the all-new )
At MOJO we only cover the good stuff...
When, in late 1993, we launched MOJO magazine the ethos was simple: MOJO would only cover the good stuff. Music that was built to
last, if you will. This modus operandi has stood us in good stead and helped MOJO become a trusted musical filter – it’s helped us rise
to become the biggest-selling monthly music magazine in the world.
From legendary acts such as The Beatles, The Who, Led Zeppelin, The Smiths and Bob Dylan through to modern day kindred spirits such as
Jack White, Frank Ocean, The Black Keys, Arcade Fire, Laura Marling and Arctic Monkeys, every month MOJO is proud to create an immersive
music experience. Consequently MOJO has become the ‘go-to’ magazine for ardent music fans and musicians alike.
As we prepare to celebrate 20 years of publishing excellence, we have decided to expand what we do further, both in terms of broadcast
(notably via our weekly show on multiple award-winning station Planet Rock), and also with our further development into the digital
realm. In terms of the latter we have rebuilt our website from the ground up, asking our users and some of our key clients what they
want from www.mojo4music.com.
The results of these conversations have informed our web offering which is built around quality, not quantity. It has also confirmed that
the values that define the magazine should also define what we do on-line. As a result, our website is run entirely by our editorial team,
its content commissioned and edited with the same fierce passion and meticulous attention to detail as the magazine has.
Inside this pack you will find out exactly what this means. As I said earlier, we are unlikely to chase ‘hits’ or follow trends. Instead we
promise to deliver intelligent content for intelligent music fans, because on MOJO, after 20 years, we’re still covering the good stuff…

SO WHY CHANGE?
We extensively interviewed our audience of
readers, advertisers and agencies to ask what
they were looking for from a MOJO website.
The main requests from our audience included:
» Exclusive content involving legendary acts.
» The best new music.
» A filter for the best ‘musical fun’ on the web.
» Recommendations and views on new releases.
» Long-form content they could actually read
» Snacky content that they could share via
» Above all, they wanted the ethos of the
magazine reflected throughout the site –
the same quality writing, the same artists,
the same iconic photography, the same depth.
These results informed the site itself.
