There is no doubt that we all appreciate the importance in supporting local and national music scenes. The difficulty more often lies in keeping on top of scenes elsewhere that aren't given enough limelight.
In the case of Romania's burgeoning electronic music scene, proximity to the country may be an issue for most us in the rest of the world. Luckily for us, the Romanian net label Local Records is rectifying this issue by distributing some of their best artists' tracks for download on the FMA.
Showering us with new genres and interesting sounds, this label is propelling artists on the top of their game. Anything you may have heard about Romanian scene will be attached to this label (think Cosmin TRG and The Model). We will all be wishing they were a little more local.
For an introduction to Balaeric Dub, listen to the transcendental Bogdan, who has provided us with an hour long live mix of sandy beach smooth and crystal water cool.
To get an overview of it all, do the easy thing and download the Local Records Buzz!Ro 2010 compilation.
