muziek gevraagd

via homerecording.be krijgen we volgende oproep om muziek-inzendingen op te sturen voor een Linux/Ubuntu distributie die speciaal op maat van mix-dj's gemaakt wordt:

"Ik ben momenteel bezig met d 2e versie van MixxxOS, het eerste besturingssysteem speciaal voor digitale dj's.

In de nieuwe release willen we ook wat muziek toevoegen zodat gebruikers meteen aan de slag kunnen.
Waaraan de tracks moeten voldoen is het volgende:
Vrije licentie bv Creative Commons
FLAC, WAV of OGG formaat
README bijvoegen met artist info, weblinks, licentie en overige aanvullingen
Enigzins gangbaar en prettig om te mixxxen
100% eigen werk of iig 100% legaal

We discrimineren wel behoorlijk want tracks gemaakt met Linux en/of FOSS krijgen voorrang
Het is toegestaan om meerdere tracks aan te melden maar gelieve wel gevarieerd gezien van elke stijl maximaal 2 tracks worden toegevoegd en nooit van dezelfde artiest.

Versie 2.0 gaat ergens komende week uitkomen dus wil je nog in de 2.0 release mag je opschieten. Je kan wel gewoon tracks blijven inzenden want bij elke update worden de tracks veranderd zodat iedereen zijn moment van roem krijgt.

mailen naar: arjan [apestaartje] socialdefect [punt] nl"

Girl Talk goes CC


Girl Talk releases his last album under a CC license (attribution - non-commercial). Girl Talk is a master in mashups: he mixes samples of existing songs into a new song. For this album he used about 380 samples from about 300 artists. He is also the guy who features as one of the protagonists in the movie 'RiP: A Remix Manifesto'.

If you like a rollercoaster of 'the best of the best of' in a mix of 1 hour dancefloor fun, you should download this release. You can also use it as a quiz.

Zimmer closes door



Psychoded, the man behind netlabels Zimmer records (techno, house), Akashic records (electronic, ambient) and Haushaltsware (deep house, idm, techdub) sent a message that he stops with Zimmer and Akashic. We don't know anything about netlabel Haushaltsware yet. Sad news indeed.

We found this info on his press page @ facebook:

-'man soll gehen wenn es am sch�nsten ist .. ^^'
-'there will be some releases to be released the next weeks, but no new stuff ... after "hermetic principles 7" the whole story will be told...'
-'lack of support' (reply: 'can't understand... all netlabels has lack of support, and this is not new...')
-'guess i will have to rethink some issues - and then move to africa. fed up with all here...'
-'akashic-records will also be down after number 12. so still 8 releases to come there. hold tight :)'

Not only was Zimmer very known for its broad gamma of techno, house, techhouse and chill, but also for its coverart, which was always made of blue or black ball pen drawings.

netaudio Berlin publication

News from the Berlin netaudio festival front:
"We would like to inform you about a new publication on the website of Netaudio Berlin which is finally ready.

This publication has developed from the idea to keep hold of some personal perspectives, interesting anecdotes and developed ideas � alongside with some theoretical thoughts � as an outcome of the festival. And analogue to the colorful mixture of participants in the festival, we were able to tie a turbulent bundle of texts in style, types and perspectives. Most of them are very friendly and full of (personal) enthusiasm, others are meant to increase and develop the content, framework and general setup of the festival.

You might leave comments on the texts if you like - and we would really love to read your remarks, footnotes and opinions. We are curious about any of your comments."

Netwaves also wants to mention that a part from this publication exists in netwaves' podcast contributions to the netaudio festival and the netlabel world.

Eurocommissaris Neelie Kroes wil macht Buma en BREIN inperken

Eurocommissaris Neelie Kroes (die van de EU vs. Microsoft) wil het auteursrecht in Europees verband moderniseren. Dat zei ze tijdens een conferentie in Frankrijk op 5 november jl.
Kroes vindt dat het auteursrecht te versnipperd is en de belangen van creatieven onvoldoende beschermt. Ook vindt Kroes dat derde partijen, zoals uitgevers en belangenorganisaties zoals Buma/Stemra en BREIN, te veel macht hebben. Ze noemt hun positie "onhoudbaar". De eurocommissaris wil dat overheden de handhaving van het auteursrecht weer op zich gaan nemen.

the sound of silence

A mysterious incident occurred with Hazard Records at the Internet Archive:

Hazard: "In august 2008, Hazard Records released the album "This Is The End, Beautiful Friend", by File Under Toner and uploaded it to the Internet Archive. It was made by recording run-out grooves (supposedly silent) of thirty-six selected records and manipulating them both by analogue and digital means. The audible result is a series of thirty-six short tracks of manipulated surface noise.

This record poses a couple of questions: "do the silent run-out grooves have copyrights?" and "in case they have, who do they belong to?". For this reason, it uses records from artists who have been involved in copyright infringement cases before. It used run-out grooves of records by Abba, Michael Jackson and James Brown, all of them known for suing artists who had used fragment of their works out of context.

At the end of September 2010, the album "This Is The End, Beautiful Friend", by File Under Toner, was "made unavailable" by the Internet Archive due to "issues with the item's content".

So, we have un-censored the record (made it available again) in October 2010. Just to (try to) keep things calm, we have removed (part of) the liner notes and replaced them by the open letter we wrote to the Internet Archive. The original liner notes can still be found in a text file (hopefully invisible for automatic filters). We hope that this is a good solution for this situation. However, it might be a good idea to download the record quickly, just in case."

netlabelism: new website & compilation

Netlabels have a new promotor: netlabelism.com. In their team we find a range of long-time netlabelistas from netlabels, ao. rec72, Zimmer-Records, Haushaltsware, Modularfield, all with their base in the city of Cologne.
As far as netwaves understands, they're intending to write reviews and release compilations, and that is what the netlabel world still needs more and more.
Cheers, guys!
