Scott Muir from Dunedinmusic.com comments: "Seven years and still going strong. It's really gratifying to see what we have managed to achieve in this time. The vitality that the local music scene has now is nothing short of amazing. There are several record labels operating, including Independent Records, Fishrider Records, Proxy Music, Monkey Killer Records, Dunedinmusic.com, and these, along with the AMPED Music Project, the team at The Attic and several other local businesses are growing the Dunedin music scene. It's fertile to say the least. Our own business has not only embraced the digital music world, but we are actively developing new partnerships all across the world in this arena."
