The netlabel tracker contains reviews and recommendation of quality netlabels that are active and innovative. I’m wish to spread the reviews across as many genres as possible.
Why do I post Netlabel reviews?
Discovering great new music is gratifying, but some days the thought of scouring the web for freshly pressed tunes can impede even the most determined of us. The Netlabel tracker is suitably named with a nod to the historical events surrounding the creation and expansion of Netlabels from the tracker scene in the 90′s. I’ve discovered so many wonderful people, music, videos and blog posts that I wish to recommend them to you. It’ll save you time, hopefully you’ll even recommend netlabels, musicians and other creations with me in the comments below. Before I post the 13th review I wish to revisit the previous recommendations.
21 of the best Eomac tracks from the last three years
The very talented Eomac who released his mnk EP on Invisible Agent just a few months ago has compiled 21 of his unreleased tracks. Unreleased in this instance means they were queued up for release on a number of labels but for various reasons they were not published. What I am trying to say is, these are not ‘B side’ tracks by any means. A huge salvo of solid tracks with the best grimey, bass heavy, glitch, spaced out beats from this rising producer. Get some…
After a 3 week hiatus I’m back in South East Asia. During a 12 hour flight to Europe I found my previous podcasts invaluable for relaxation and to break the monotony of airport security. I’ve had several requests to make my mixes longer. So I’m going to try my best over the coming months to break 70 minutes on the beat orientated mixes and 90 minutes for the ambient excursions.
Sam Grinsell doesn’t normally do electronic orientated works, I like his fusion of guitar effects and distortion. I always take note of shares on Twitter by @vuzhmusic, for this mix I used a track by the one and only C. Reider.
Please check out a great new netlabel We Are All Ghosts, with a strong roster of artists including Apta, who will feature in a future mix, this label is off to a great start. In this mix I used a track by the very talented Cousin Silas.
I also highly recommend following Free Floating Music on twitter @ffloating and check out the amazing music released on the freefloatingmusic netlabel. Daniel Robert Lahey is a new find for me, another very talented artist who comes highly recommended.
An upcoming A new album by the very talented Ketsa entitled ‘Al Kemet’ will be available soon. To make this release even more special, each track has been interpreted by Cambodian female artist Dina Chhan. One of the 16 beautifully hand crafted wooden frames painted by Dina Chhan using acrylic paint can be yours to enjoy along side this fantastic album. (2 panels were used for the digital covers and have been given to Dominic, 14 panels, 1 for each track will be available soon)
