Electronic Music discussion: on indie scene / netlabels @ netlabelism.com
Written January 10 2011 , Tags: industry, music, freedom, netlabels
there's an interesting discussion over at link regarding the indie scene, artists' income and the role of netlabels.
i thought it might be of interest. i took some time to properly express my thoughts on the topic there, i might re-post here later.
Nice! never seen this website. I see they endorse another great website; FMA - link
My netlabel is curator for FMA. Maybe a nice idea to release a EM411 compilation?
Hmm, I read through a ton of that. I think the model the author is talking about is like a mix between Hypemachine and Em411. I think meh tho, online social networking isn't the answer for a good model. Larger Netlabels should annex smaller ones. I'm down for that, sounds like a great idea, especially since the music biz already does it with success.
they care more about aestetics and the social part of the music than the music itself ... pitty ...
@wakax: the blog post is more about aesthetics and the social part of the music. the music itself is another big issue...

Well we all know what happened when they annexed the smaller ones... They stopped existing. (wassnt that how planet mu got started?)
probs, I just got more interested in netlabels, I think the ones I like are still pretty small, I hope they get or organize larger ones.
