I’m Dan Swinhoe. London-based Journalist. Enthusiastic writer of all things interesting.
This is simply everything I’ve done on the internet, complied into one place.
I’m a music man mostly; it’s what I know and what comes easiest to write about, but I’m not afraid of expanding my palette. Other interests include Science & Tech, Environmentalism/ Sustainability and the media industry.
Like all journalists, I’m on Twitter.
Detour was our online uni magazine, ended up being Music Editor in second year.
Detour morphed into Spark in third year, whole new team involved, but I still threw in a piece or two.
Sharemyplaylists.com is a Spotify-related site which allows you to upload your Spotify playlists for other to enjoy. Wrote a few reviews and Playlist roundups.
Heaviest of all the heavy metal mags, I managed to get a few pieces up on their blog on my work placement.
Free indy music mag. Had a good laugh and got a fre pieces up ont the features. Plenty of news too.
A website based in the North East, but has a bit of everything. Wrote some reviews.
Science & Tech website. My outlet for long-form non-music pieces. Aerospace, Environment, pretty much anything really.
Free weekly London paper aimed at S. Africans. I volunteered two days a week for a few months.
Big website for the lads, around 800,000 users a month looking at Football posts. I contribute to the music bit again.
My current employers. An IT Publishing company based in Staines, I write articles on a variety of Tech-based subjects.
An extreme metal e-Zine, I contribute a few reviews now and again.
