Public Enemy producer C-Doc bum rushes blocSonic and Free Music Archive!

It’s been quite a year for blocSonic. We released our 100th release. So far we’ve released a staggering 34 releases and we’re not done with 2012 yet! We welcomed a few new artists to our humble netlabel and a number of them were new to Creative Commons licensing.

Among the CC newbies is C-Doc, a man who wears many hats… director, producer, MC & musician. As producer and director, he’s had the opportunity to work with one of the biggest names in hip-hop… Public Enemy. Among the work he’s done for PE is what’s become a modern classic from their post Def Jam era, “Superman’s Black In The Building”. He not only produced the song, but he directed the video, as well. Check it out below:

You can also find tracks of his on both PE albums released this year “Most Of My Heroes STILL Don’t Appear on NO Stamp” and “The Evil Empire of Everything”. Check them out below:



We were psyched this year when Doc showed interest in re-releasing a project of his that didn’t originally receive the attention it deserved. That project was for his and partner in rhyme Tirade’s LOWdown. In May their album dumpTRUCK received the Xtended Edition treatment and got released at blocSonic with a bonus disc of material from that album’s sessions.

We were even happier to find out that he wanted to release a new solo album! That album, “Divided We Stand” along with it’s four singles were finally released this past month and contain a stunning array of hip-hop for the discerning listener. Real hip-hop, my friends. You definitely shouldn’t sleep.

As with all our free releases, the LOWdown and C-Doc releases all made their way to the FMA. Below are a few highlights. Thanks for listening!

netBloc Vol. 27: Straight Outta The FMA

As of the time of this writing, not even a year after it’s launch, WFMU’s Free Music Archive already boasts nearly 18,000 free music tracks from a wide array of genres. It’s an interesting collection in that it not only features music that comes from the world of netaudio/netlabels, but many signed indie artists can be found among the FMA’s selection as well. It’s definitely an incredible archive of music to explore!

After a good three months of listening to thousands of FMA tracks, I somehow managed to whittle the selection down to 11 exceptional gems. It was really a difficult choice, but in the end the final line-up proves to be a terrific mix of Rock, Pop, Punk, Indie, Trip-Hop and even a splash of humor thrown in for good measure.

A special thanks to Jason Sigal over at WFMU and FMA who was most helpful in getting me access to lossless copies of the two Live At WFMU tracks which are featured here. Thanks also to the labels, artists and to CASH Music for participating and helping me pull together all that was needed to make this release happen.

Since this netBloc release features music that’s already available here at the FMA, I’ve put together this mix for you to enjoy here. If you’d like the complete release, see the link below.

Peace
