sabam stopt definitief met agentschappen

Sabam: "Zoals bekend heeft SABAM op 31 december 2010 haar netwerk van onafhankelijke agentschappen opgedoekt die sinds 1962 belast waren met de inning van auteursrechten voor occasionele evenementen in heel het land. Nu zijn in alle regio�s commercieel afgevaardigden aan de slag, rechtstreeks in dienst van de hoofdzetel."

Dit lezen we eigenlijk in een reactie van Sabam op het populaire Een-programma "Basta": "De volledige context van het BASTA-verhaal"

Vreemd genoeg doet Sabam de eigenlijke uitgebreide mededeling in een franstalig communiqu� op het engelstalige deel van haar website: hallo?

Et pour les flamands la m�me chose? Sabam begint meer en meer te lijken op de vergane glorie van een oudbollig, krampachtig belgicistisch gilde van componisten en artiesten. Jezes, wat een ouwbollige garde, doet denken aan Tunesi� en Egypte ...

netlabelism's database

There's a new initiative in netlabel-town:
netlabelism.com tells: "Today we would like to present to you a brand new Netlabelism feature: The Contribution Database (Version 1.1 Beta). It�s a section where you can easily contribute your latest free release or music worth sharing. Register a free account and spread the word! At the moment we have chosen a very clear and simple layout for each release, so you can quickly see the artist, label, genre and where you can find it. You can share your impressions and ideas about the database in the articel comment section."

This week you will find some of the nicest ambient tracks in the netlabel world, all gathered by netwaves. Think as a first step in a series of 'Best of ambient'. Netwaves only covers the more melodic ambient, not the type of put-a-brick-on-the-keyboard-and-move-it-aside-now-and-then-ambient.

meet Ken Wood, Kimberly Clark, Suzi Wan and Mr. Cocktail & The Partymix

Monday evening is Basta! time in Flemish television: 4 guys who criticize general abuses, like the time you spend when you phone to the helpdesk of your telephone company and they connect and reconnect and connect back to colleagues.
Well, this monday they launched new popstars with a concert and with their signing in to the belgian collectors society Sabam. But the hoax was that these stars happened to be a kitchen-mixer, a can of soysprouts, a bottle of juice and a dryer. A week later they received the bill of 542,74 euro for the concert of these fake characters. This was/is clear evidence that Sabam does not check it's database.

And what it makes interesting, is that they had asked netwaves to look for 'sabam-free' music. So the tune you hear in the van, is a tune we played in netwaves 160, with the very appropriate title: "Fatal error" performed by Bachelor Machines.

This episode of Basta! reached 1.344.294 viewers!
