Online Music Stores: While some users are split between pay per track versus subscription services, there is a third option which I am not sure what to make of.
More shops like LaLa are popping up. Their approach is “Get the web song (unlimited online plays) for 10 cents, or the MP3 download for 79 cents more”. Maybe because I am in a Wi-fi black hole everywhere I go:-) even so, why should I pay 10 cents to listen to a track? I fail to see how a service like this exists – especially since there are thousands of free full length tracks available to play on LastFM and the likes of MySpace. A high percentage of these are also available for free download. Invisible Agent have a number of Free Tracks and EPs available on LastFM – so head over there now.
What baffles me even more, certain large online music stores do not offer full, DRM-free downloads. I was under the impression that DRM died a death years ago… Maybe I need to buy a Zune and live in a Wifi zone! All comments are welcome, let us know if you use a subscription service or not…

Tunnel EP Cover
4 slabs of solid Techno from Berlin based producer John Dalton.
This EP includes a remix from ikeaboy.
Ikeaboy picks Andrea Parker – Freaky Bitches (Touching Bass) as his Dancefloor Destroyer.
DJ Mag – July 2007
It’s been out for a good while but it’ll always be fresh. “Freaky Bitches” ticks all the boxes. It’s got bass that’ll push you over and kneel on your chest, a low-slung groove and booty style guest vocals from DJ Assault and DJ Godfather. Parker does atmospherics like no other and this is a brooding dark affair with classic production that will never date.
Following on the success of the SeedyR remixes of the Corrugated Tunnel ‘Rockstars’ EP. Invisible Agent sees 3 established artists step up for remix duties.
