It has recently been brought to our attention by the RIAA that certain tracks released on Invisible Agent Records contain bin-aural beats and must be removed from all distribution channels and online shops.
It appears that the RIAA have taken the matter in to their own hands after a Channel 9 News segment about ‘i-dosing’ in July 2010. The Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs claimed that “digital drugs” use “bi-aural or two-toned, technology to alter your brain waves and mental state,” producing a “state of ecstasy” for the user. The RIAA has stepped up its efforts to educate law enforcement & music industry officials worldwide about the issue and how to deal with it. Such efforts have reduced the availability of music from a number of record labels, it claims.
We will use every resource at our disposal to block the RIAA from removing our music from iTunes, emusic, Amazon, Napster, Juno, Spotify, Sony Connect and Nokia stores. While we believe that bin-aural beats affect brainwaves directly and can alter moods, behaviour, even consciousness, Invisible Agent and a number of other independent labels are requesting ‘distributors label tracks that contain bi-aural beats’, similar to the ‘illicit language’ tags utilized for over 2 decades.
