The Deli, launched in 2004, continues an earlier, local fanzine founded by Charles Newman, a music producer and studio owner in New York City. Published both in print and online, The Deli covers emerging independent artists in various locales and scenes: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Nashville, Portland, Austin, Kansas City, Philadelphia and the New England area.

The magazine's print edition is quarterly. Both the print and online editions have further versions tailored to specific locales, yet otherwise have similar sections: editorials on the current music scene, interviews of music bands and of industry insiders, reviews of albums and of equipment, and classified ads. (In 2011, the magazine's gear reviews ceased syndication, by limited partnership, from the music-production website SonicScoop,[1][2] and began occurring through The Deli technology blog[3] Delicious Audio.)[4]


Since 2009, The Deli website has included blogs, polls, charts, and live listings updated daily. (On its website, The Deli codes music genres with respective icons: a hamburger for rock, a hash brownie for psychedelic, a fish for electronic, and a soup can for ambient, etc.) The Deli also hosts live music events, mainly The Deli's Best of NYC Fest, which, occurring in the spring, is preceded by the magazine's Best of NYC Yearly Poll, whose jury is comprised by New York booking agents, bloggers and scenemakers.
