The Wild Places are everywhere, it is within us and it is out there. These wild places are found there where we see life in its purest, where the human presence has not corrupted and moulded things according to their own selfish desires but rather there where God's will and grand beauty is most evident and most clear. The road less travelled - The pursuit, the longing, the search for the essence of life, the true and purposed meaning which transcends that which is seen. This is a road not often travelled in this age where desires are gratified on demand, mostly with a lifeless counterfeit of the real experience, and purpose is measured on the amount of material wealth you have attained. This road less travelled is a narrow path, a path that seems hard to find and stay on but once taken ultimately leads you into a lush valley where the source of beauty and meaning is found. "Man cannot discover new oceans unless he has the courage to lose sight of the shore." - Andre Gide, "All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost." - J. R. R. Tolkien You have what it takes - You have what it takes to be triumphant over those battles and challenges that you are facing right now, and over those that are to come. True heart - To have a true heart, to seek and strive for that which is good, pure, right and noble. To dream, to love, to live as you were meant to be and to become your true self. Stay the course - You will face many challenges in reaching your goals, your quests, your dreams. But stand fast and don't give up. Stay the course. For soon, just beyond the horizon, you will get there, and when you reach it, it will be all the more glorious. Slowly but surely - Nothing that is worth anything good happens in an instant. Time reveals beauty. There is always a history that has prepared the way for something great to happen to, or through, it. Therefore, keep at it, get into the groove, for slowly but surely the beauty and the glory of its true purpose will be revealed. The crux of the story - There is a climax to every story. A moment where all the events leading up to that point comes together, their greater purpose being revealed. So too it is with this grand story of life. The crux of the story, where all time and space crossed over to set things in a new direction, to set things right, to set the course towards eternity. There is a mystery - There is beauty and wonder in the mysteries of life, even more so if there is something great behind that mystery. For not everything in this life is known or will ever be fully known. There exists a vast mystery that is profound beyond measure. There is a mystery to you and to your soul. There is only One who can reveal this mystery and that is the Creator of All. The first steps towards this revelation is faith (acceptance and trust), love (wonder, gratitude, consideration and humility) and hope (expectations for great things to come). Something greater - There is something great behind the existence of everything. Something greater beyond the horizon of what we perceive as life. Something vast and indescribable. Something greater still. Something which only your soul can truly comprehend. You can witness a glimpse of this greatness for yourself for its likeness can be found within you.

Back in the early 2000s, I began discovering the incredibly diverse world of netlabels/netaudio. At first, my exploration was hindered due to my lack of commitment to the need of listening to such a large array of music only to discover a very few gems that appealed to my tastes. By 2006 I had come to realize that there wasn’t any easy button to discovering music I love. I also decided that I’d take it upon myself to create that easy button for others to discover the vibrant music scene more easily than I was able to. That easy button became blocSonic.com and was launched in January of 2007.
For the first two years, I concentrated on the series of releases for which blocSonic was created, the netBloc series. A series of releases that collects 10-12 personal netaudio favorites into a fully realized compilation album that comes with complete album art, a PDF booklet with extensive liner-notes and is available in multiple audio formats, including lossless FLAC. In those first two years, 26 volumes were released that shined the spotlight on a widely eclectic range of netaudio from all over the world. The netBloc series quickly generated interest among music listeners, netaudio artists and netlabels alike.
Then in 2009 came the natural next step… releasing blocSonic original albums alongside the netBloc series. That year saw the release of the first four blocSonic originals… Just Plain Ant’s “Dig Deep”, Formula’s “The Catastrophic Connection”, Luck & Ripps’ “The Catastrophic Connection” and CM aka Creative’s “Classic Material Vol. 3: UI Radio”.
Along with new netBloc and original releases, 2010 came with it’s own additions to the blocSonic release line-up… maxi-singles and EPs known as maxBlocs and blocSonic’s own brand of deluxe edition re-releases called Xtended Editions.
2011 was a year of refining the blocSonic release schedule and planning for more growth this year.
Since launching, blocSonic’s audience has only grown and continues to do so now even as I plan future additions to the release line-up, a new site design and other exciting changes. The future is bright for netaudio and for blocSonic. I can’t wait to let you in on what I’ve got cooking!
For now, get to know blocSonic or simply catch up… with this selection of 50 highlights from the 2007-2012 archives.
