ears wanted

According to Electronic Music Anonymous these are a few more 'amazing net labels':

"I can't get enough Dub Techno. Recently I came across some amazing net labels that make the majority of their albums free to download under a creative commons license. Most of the releases share similar qualities to the artists found on Echocord, and provide many hours of late listening pleasure and throbbing kick drums. Great to see such amazing collections of music forming in very different parts of the world.

Smolensk, Russia - http://www.cismsound.net/
Vancouver, British Columbia - http://www.silentseason.com/

My favorite artist of the lot is Ohrwert http://ohrwert.blogspot.com/
This video of him doing his thing explains why. Plus most of its analog. Wish I had hardware."



After reading this exciting news - i'm also a dubtech fan - i'm going to the ear-shop to buy some extra ears.
What i want to say, is that there's nowadays an explosion of new netlabels and netlabelism. The difference with 5 years ago is that recent netlabels are getting more professional and finding an 'identity', but this needs also a few extra professional ears ... help! Maybe somebody can lend some ears?
