Random Access Recordings - Invisible Agent Netlabel Tracker

Netlabel Tracker #8: Random Access Recordings

The netlabel tracker continues its endless quest in search of quality netlabels that are active and innovative. I’m concentrating hard to spread the tracker across as many genres as possible and encompasses music with acoustic guitars as much as synthesized beeps and booms. After homing in on a particular label & genre I squeeze every last bit out of my Internet connection amassing the collections of quality and free music that are on offer. So far I’ve happily filled 10Gb of my hard drive with netaudio, no credit card needed to ride this train!

Netlabel Tracker #5: Yuki Yaki

Yuki Yaki is an artists platform and netlabel focused in the area of electronic media. I’d rather not box them in and state their focus is in IDM, minimal techno, electronica or clicks’n’cuts. I’ll happily point out they differentiate themselves with an excellent range of high quality output. An impressive list of heavy weight producers on the audio side with a short but excellent video & photographic roster. I’m going to have to mention Maps and Diagrams, Scaff and Lackluster. Head on over to yukiyak.org and get downloading. Delicious!

This album was made over the course of 3 years of traveling. Music comes on without warning, swells up in my head and then bullies me into making something that sounds like it. That’s […]
