>A netlabel . . . is a record label that distributes its music through digital audio formats . . . over the Internet. . . . netlabels typically emphasize free distribution online, often under licenses that encourage works to be shared (e.g., Creative Commons licenses) . . .

A thread to talk about netlabels, their artists, releases and related topics.

Maltine Records

The first netlabel I was introduced to. I believe I may have been by seeking out a track used by nyjunkies on 8tracks. I was fairly new to the style of music in general, so it was a very pleasant surprise for me to find out that people were releasing it gratis. I highly recommend exploring Maltine's releases, I haven't found many that I didn't enjoy a lot. A few somewhat randomly selected recommendations:

[MARU-056] 芳川よしの - Beyond The Chasm
I think may have been the first release I picked up. It's at least the first that stands out, I really enjoyed the way he fit the sampled verse in "Cagayake!Girls (yoshino's 8va-step remix)" over a rhythm much different from the original.

It was really sad for me to try to find more by this guy, only to learn he apparently died at age 18. Pretty amazing to me that he was producing on the level that he was before that.

[MARU-026] 三毛猫ホームレス - ave EP
I really wish I was clever enough to come up with something like "nekomimimodal".

If those aren't quite to your taste, I would still recommend browsing through others.

Oh man, Bunkai-Kei has some incredibly good albums. Myrtle, Mirage and a few wonderful tracks off Elect-LO-nica springs to mind. I found a blog many moons ago, made by what I believe to be a Frenchman, who updates his blog with albums from various netlabels. It's a good source to find new sites to follow.


But you have to be careful. Some of the music is horrible freeware shite, barely fit as BGM for lame games on newgrounds.

Bunkai-Kei Records

A quieter label, has a lot of beautiful music along with some field recordings and other goodies. This is Go-qualia's (main) stomping ground, anything attached to his name is recommended. A few specific recommendations:

[BK-K 010] VA - Elect-LO-nica Compilation
A release in cooperation with Comic LO. Required listening material.

[BK-K 013] Go-qualia - Dissolve Miku Slowly In Waveform
Remixes of kz's "Last Night, Good Night". Producing glitch featuring Miku is on my to-do before death checklist, so this is right up my alley.

Also, Go-qualia's Puella Magi

Grind, hardcore (including the electronic variety) and all kinds of other noisy stuff.

Personally I can recommend Cloud Rat, No Anchor, Wadge, Maruosa, Surachai, Bologna Violenta, Ablach, Gripe, Spacebong, Leeres Hirn, Sulaco, Jucifer and No Gang Colors or you can just grab one of those comps.

How could I not have known about this after the fuss that was made about Exmilitary? Good stuff here, thanks.
