I love netlabels and there is a vast variety of them. One of them is called TROPIC NETLABEL and is from Frankfurt/Germany and is releasing all music for free with the philosophy:

“to give a talented variety of artists a home for their music and bulit up a worldwide collective based on fine electronic music. Tropic is non commercial, open minded and colorful. No matter if its House, Electronica, Ambient or Techno, it has to be special with a warm feeling”

“We lost a lot of good netlabels the last years because the digital market is growing so much, but what about selling a few copies that nobody realizes indeed of reaching thousands with a netlabel and get love from all over the world. In these days of capitalism, promotion and marketing strategies, we are a embassy of  community based and noncommercial music. Enjoy the music as always 🙂 spread love!”

Tropics latest release “5 Years Of Tropic Netlabel” is mixed with basic channel style chords, ambient soundscapes and deep basslines that is the perfect combination for every dubtechno lover.

Kosmonaut!

2010/08/06

Another supergood release from my favorite netlabel iD.EOLOGY! This is Kosmonaut a deep space, drum n bass, dubstep thing called Photon!

” Just as one thing can be viewed entirely different in different light, depending on how you view it light itself can appear as entirely different things – as wave or as particle. The photons which light consists of are neither the one thing nor the other, and yet they’re both at the same time.

On his superluminal trips through the electromusical universe Kosmonaut had plenty of opportunities to delve deeply into the nature of light, and enough inspiration to record his findings in the universal language of music. On long-wave basses he drags us down into the hypnotic maelstrom of a black hole of infinitely compressed dubstep, lets perishing melodical fragments flash up one last time before the energetic darkness swallows them entirely. What started out as drum’n’bass from another world, bursts into a supernova of brilliantly variegated tone colours, emits shockwaves of pulsating beats and blows a harmonic particle-storm through our gray cells.

Purists may now wonder whether Kosmonaut is about dubstep or about drum’n’bass. Much in the vain of the wave-particle-dualism he is neither about the one thing nor about the other, and yet he’s about both at the same time. In the end, though, much like the photon itself, Kosmonaut really is about one thing: energy “

Mephuser is an experimental electronic project based in berlin/germany. its sample-based music (layered composition) is influenced by low-hi electronics, sounds/textures, field recordings and psychedelics.

To describe this album, which took two years to create, seems to be impossible at all. Mephuser takes us on a tour through his world and beyond. He shows us the diversity of his stylistic ideas by letting them slip into this kaleidoscope of tracks. You won’t stay in one place for too long as Mephuser is always already round the next corner with something new for you. But this album is neither just a conglomeration nor the mere, cold proof of musical excellence: it is a composition like a day, a year or a life in 50 minutes.

Mephuser – Mercy Limit (released 13.09.2009 on tonAtom)

Ohhh YEASH, check this superslick cover version of the classic Roni Size track “Brown Paper Bag” from the album “New Forms” from 1997, the band doing the cover is called Sound Riot and is coming from the middle part of Sweden in the city of Östersund,  this lads are pretty stoked on just dnb music with some jazzy influenses.

Harmonic 313

First of all sorry for the lack of posts, been on a short vaccation! So let me make up for this and give you some untouchable tunes.

Jedi Knights and Global Communication’s Mark Pritchard returns to Warp Records to release his debut album “When Machines Exeed Human Intelligence” under the guise of Harmonic 313. Not to be confused with his hip- hop inspired library music compositions with Dave Brinkworth as Harmonic 33, Pritchard has created his own vision of the future of electronica, taking influence from the dubstep scene mixed up with robotic sounds, spacebeats and deep and sometimes dark approach.

A mix of electro beats, harsh distorted basslines, atmospheric washes and Detroit like stabs, the album cements Pritchard’s position as one of the UK’s most diverse and eclectic electronic producers.

Please check out Harmonic 313´s website it´s pretty rad!

Amon Tobin

I guess (and hope) you all heard of Amon Tobin a.k.a Amon Adonai Santos de Araújo Tobin if not i´m pretty sorry for your lifes!! He is without doubt one of the biggest underground heroes alive on planet earth today, who has delivered so much good music the past decade, this blogpost is a celebration of Tobins´s career!

The Brazilian musician, DJ, and producer known for his massive sound walls blending trip-hop sampled jazz fused with drum and bass, intelligent dance music and samba, often with a pretty dark and deep approach is best known for his use of sampling, where a small section of a previous recording is manipulated to produce a new sound. His use of this technique has changed over the course of his career. On his original singles under Ninebar and his first three albums, Tobin acquired all of the samples to produce music from his personal collection of vinyl records, nowadays he manipulates the sounds with a combination of audio hardware and software, and the original source is often not recognizable in its new context. His techniques began branching into technical sound design, taking break beats or single instruments, modifying specific frequencies, and producing new sounds. Tobin is signed to the ever so reliable label Ninja Tunes.

Venetian Snares

Venetian Snares is the main performing alias of Canadian electronic musician Aaron Funk. He is Breakcore’s heaviest hitter and always a busy man. He’s made a habit of releasing multiple albums every year and still somehow manages to tour the globe constantly. Although a native Canadian, he’s toured Europe extensively over the past half decade.

I read a pretty funny review about Funk´s music: ” Frankly incredible mash up of noise, jungle, shouting, breaks, unidentified breaking objects and Stevie Wonder on ketamine driving at 400mph down the M1 projectile vomiting to the sound of his own music played at 10 times the normal speed. Venetian Snares has managed to capture the essence of some of the world’s most violent massacres and translate them into a whole funk collector’s collection worth of number one break core hits! Absolutely imperative listening “
