The magazine covered a variety of cultural topics, with a focus on music, art, and fashion. It included interviews with musicians and artists, album and concert reviews, and coverage of emerging fashion trends.

Modern Fix was founded by Duane Harriott, a New York-based DJ and music producer, and Ravi Krishnaswami, a marketing professional with a background in music journalism. The magazine was created in response to the lack of coverage of emerging artists and musicians in mainstream music media.

Throughout its six-year run, Modern Fix gained a reputation for identifying and promoting up-and-coming talent in the music and art worlds. The magazine featured articles on notable musicians such as Bloc Party, TV on the Radio, and Bright Eyes, as well as coverage of visual artists such as Banksy and Shepard Fairey.

In addition to its print publication, Modern Fix also had an active online presence, with a website that featured articles, interviews, and reviews. The website also had a forum section where readers could discuss music and art-related topics.

Despite its focus on emerging talent and its loyal following, Modern Fix struggled to maintain profitability. The magazine ceased publication in 2007, citing financial difficulties.

Despite its relatively short run, Modern Fix remains a valuable resource for those interested in the history of independent music and art media in the United States.{{Categories}}
