It's been quite some time since we curated one of our Best Of Breitband Compilations. Finally, here it is: Vol. 6 is ready to go on your player, smartphone, computer or wherever you may listen to music! Best Of Breitband Vol. 6 is a compilation of songs that have been featured on our radio show and podcast "Breitband", a weekly show on new media and digital culture, airing every Saturday at 2pm on German Public Radio Deutschlandradio Kultur. Every week, we play six tracks of music that can only be found on the web, most of it comes with a Creative Commons licence, allowing everyone to share the songs. We hope you will enjoy the 24 songs that are somewhere between Indie, Pop, Electronic, Folk and Hip-Hop.

Celebrating 50 releases on Noise Problems we decided to throw a party. For the 50th release we decided to record that party. The Secret Love Parade returns to Noise Problems a year after the OCCII recording from the Pageturner nr1 night, as well as NewYX formerly known as Storm from the Recipe Book night at the Winston release and introducing to Noise Probs two amazing bands Katadreuffe and Pony Pack. We are thrilled to have them complete the evening and make a fine extent to our live recordings collection.
March 11, 2011 was the date set for the event held at the OCCII in Amsterdam to celabrate the 50 releases at Noise Problems. All started quite natural recording a few nights here and there and before we knew it we had reached 50 bands on Noise Probs.
We had to do something about and decided to throw a party where we could choose the bands to record and called up some of the local Amsterdam bands we knew from the scene. The Secret Love Parade were the perfect act of solid electronic beats and postmodern pop melodies to kick things off and set a mood for the evening. New YX where also known to us. Their sound is dary, a fusion of danceable electro and post-rock tunes great to make the transition to the loud part of the night.
Soon after Noise Problems debutants Pony Pack made the crowd move and the heat to rise with fiery guitar riffs. Katadreuffe sealed it by combining most of the above elements into their noisy, post-punkish (massive) sound wave which enveloped everyone in the place into a tight hug.
Also for the occasion of the 50th release a compilation was issued to commemorate. Its 23 tracks are available in 6 volumes for download here at the FMA. Great tracks selected from amongst the first 50 Noise Problems releases. Check out the Selections too. All shows were recorded live between 2007 and 2010 at various Amsterdam venues.

One such release is Mellifluous Ichor From Sunless Regions by The Wyrding Module. One hour of sono-thaumaturgical experiments divided in 4 chapters, seamlessly executed by Salford based paramusician Christopher Gladwin, also known for being half of the legendary electronic duo Team Doyobi, who are responsible for over 15 years of incredible tunes on labels like Skam, ∆Icasea, Tigerbeat6 and Fat Cat. Melliflous Ichor From Sunless Regions is a mantra-shaped lysergic trip into the unknown.

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.
