What is the Netlabel Tracker?
The netlabel tracker contains reviews and recommendation of quality netlabels that are active and innovative. I’m wish to spread the reviews across as many genres as possible.
Why do I post Netlabel reviews?
Discovering great new music is gratifying, but some days the thought of scouring the web for freshly pressed tunes can impede even the most determined of us. The Netlabel tracker is suitably named with a nod to the historical events surrounding the creation and expansion of Netlabels from the tracker scene in the 90′s. I’ve discovered so many wonderful people, music, videos and blog posts that I wish to recommend them to you. It’ll save you time, hopefully you’ll even recommend netlabels, musicians and other creations with me in the comments below. Before I post the 13th review I wish to revisit the previous recommendations.
