“Chile” (Used 18 times)
netlabelday on 06/16/2016 at 01:00PM
Today is June 15, I know, but yesterday we released two new compilations with independent music, gathering 18 netlabels from all over the world in one album. That's something that the major labels can't do because "it's not profitable". Come on, let's do this for the art!
Here on FMA you can find -lovely- songs by Hiroshima Dandys, Csum, Charles White, Élansson, Unchained Zebra and more, and you can download all this right now for free (after all it's Free Music Archive, of course you can). But that's not all.
As you may know, Netlabel Day was created in Chile by M.I.S.T. Records, so we felt that we should do something for the Chilean music as well. After all, it's our country and beyond all the corruption stories and the social chaos that we have right now (we aren't having good times here, to be honest), our mission is support the Chilean culture as well, so we decided to release a compilation with Chilean music in Sazoot, a Chilean digital music store, completely free for everyone. They're our friends, so we really recommend you to visit their enormous catalog too.
There's one month left for the big day, so be prepared... A lot of new music is coming, and "it's not just free music; it's good music".

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce everyone to their summer jams of 2014: the prolific, poppy, hip-hoppy talents of Dadalú. Brought to the FMA by that speedy netlabel whose influences are listed as bootleg CD-Rs found on the streets of Buenos Aires Los Emes Del Oso-Dadalú's DIY spirit hails from Santiago, Chile. According to a google translate digestion of this write up on Musica Popular.cl, the former Nirvana fan Dadalú started making music after Kurt Cobain suggested that instead of screaming, girls should pick up a guitar & play. & play she did! As someone who doesn't speak a lot of Spanish (i.e. none) I can't attest to the lyrical content of her songs but I'm pretty sure I agree with all of it. Blending the street vibes of the rap mixtape with the snottiness of a self-released riotgrrrl 7" Dadalú is an inspiration from the millenial generation to all humans.
