• Netlabels

    Netlabels are web based labels who distributes free music through digital audio formats - mainly MP3, Ogg Vorbis or FLAC - over the Internet under Creative Commons licenses.
  • Netlabels History

    Online music groups date back almost as far as the history of personal computers, and share close ties with video games and the demoscene. Early music groups released music in MOD formats, typically as part of a music disk, which often included a MOD player, visual effects, and textual information.

    Netlabels began to branch out from the tracker scene when the MP3 file format became popular in the late 1990s. Most are still dedicated to electronic music and related genres, though this is rapidly changing.

    Early netlabel pioneers include the Kosmic Free Music Foundation (1991–1999), Five Musicians (1995–2000), Monotonik (1996–present) and Tokyo Dawn Records (1997–2005).

    Today there is a wide range and fast increasing number of netlabels all over the world. Though netaudio music is still a niche within music business the easy way of distributing the music via download/stream from the internet and the modern license system are the strongest arguments for the growing importance of netlabels and netaudio.

[sfp04] Coax – Artifacts And Discovery

“Our fourth release is a full length album from norwegian artist Coax, who has previously made appearances on Kahvi and Monotonik netlabels. Artifacts And Discovery being the title, the album is a wonderfully varied combination of ambient softness, dramatic orchestral pieces, sensitive piano interludes, science fiction movie atmosphere, all spiced up with the occasional electronic rhythms. At times, you feel like you have landed on the surface
of an unknown planet, feel the tension build as you look around and there is nothing but unexplored terrain surrounding you. Then, as the album goes further, the next moment.. the dreamy string ensemble capture your attention, you begin to feel safe and comfortable again. Enchanted with the beautiful harmonies, you watch the clouds passing by, happy memories from the past are filling your mind, you feel like floating. Close your eyes, enter the intriguing world of Artifacts And Discovery.”

Coax is also in process of releasing a CD album titled “The Third Mobius”,which includes 6 tracks already presented here. Professionally mastered and inluding stunning cover artwork by Jeroen Advocaat. For more details,
