The Portuguese Wal Thisney is one of the main protagonists of the underground world of netlabels, a tireless producer of beautiful records and accessible to all through the name your price formula.
His works have been released on many of the world’s best netlabels, and we are very honored to publish his work. His music is something that could be called neo classical, and it is a pleasure to be enjoyed calmly and without haste, letting everything flow.
Wal Thisney is the demonstration that out of the market there are beautiful music, made by characters who deserve great attention.

This album shows points of my life that were important, which have influenced me, or which have happened to me.
track 10 with Vava Vol (vavavol.bandcamp.com)
track 013: text by Eisenlager glasklinge zeitenlicht, Voice by Miriam Christina
Maybe because it’s the first musical instrument us humans knew in our entire life.
This is an attempt to make compositions (and also to make peace) with my voice as building blocks; still, it is hard to tame.
Except for the last track. I had fun playing with free piano app on my phone, and it complements and compliments the end result quite a bit.
Also shout out to my old friend from years back, Ms. Bamby C. who now resides in Jakarta; utmost gratitude for the permission to use some of her excellent writings for lyrics/general ideas throughout this release.

Frozen Clinamen is a new serie of works started by Failure Circle (a solo project of Kecap Tuyul) in autumn 2017. It follows a simple method inspired by the the possibilities of his no-input mixer set-up and the will to use a limited sound material in a posteriori compositions. Frozen Clinamen #1 was recorded and mixed between november 2017 & june 2018.
step (1) Tweaking the set-up until it produces some seemingly autonomously self-sustained sound sequences.
step (2) Stopping tweaking and recording for at least 20 minutes without any intervention on the set-up.
step (3) Repeating steps (1) & (2) several times.
step (4) Using the generated sounds as only source in a posteriori compositions. The only variations used while mixing are equalization, panoramics and volume levels.
step (5) play it at low/high volume with open/closed window while complety asleep / fully conscious.
Imagine a world where the sounds of sixties testcard music and the sort of music played between working mens’ clubs acts had been picked up by aliens and then sent back to earth for an intergalactic knees-up around the Hammond organ….
Difficult? It may not have been Montague Armstrong’s intention, but that’s what this delightful, effervescent concoction of tunes makes me think of. Jude Cowan Montague’s effortlessly cheerful tunes and Matt Armstrong’s always immaculately well-placed electric bass make this an unusual, but definitely desirable item from Linear Obsessional and also marks the third release in LinOb’s new Cassette Imprint series.Released as a professionally duplicated cassette with a picture by Katy Binks and design by David Little,and as a free/name-your-price download.
Guitar maestro Sebastian Buccheri, with his Jazzdefector project, presents us a sublime series of short improvisations swinging between ambient and jazz.
Released for the Netlabel Day 2018, Improvisations 2014 is an EP that will leave you starving for more as soon as you reach the end of the playlist. It is a journey to the rich artist’s sound palette made of slow harmonic progressions, arpeggios and cosmic reverbered guitar pads.

“Indr0 is the artistic moniker of Carlos Píscopo and it is an experimental music project, with influences from dark ambient, industrial, noise, drone and electronics based in sonic deconstruction and with cultural studies serving as a political and theoretical foundation.
His music is extremely cold, dark, at times suffocating, with care taken in its purely desolate, instrumental aesthetic, populated with climates of rusty, scratchy plains, and full of images.“

(Córdoba, Argentina. Julio / July 2018).
A 2018 Netlabel Day release – a compilation of Slovenian artists, with many original works that span a wide spectrum of electronic music genres: from noise and sonic art, via bass, breaks, all the way to acid techno. The concept of the compilation is to bring attention to the conflict between necessity of free culture and enclosure of culture by copyright law. The conflict which is temporarily solved by Creative Commons licences.
An act of publishing music under the conditions of a free culture licence is a political act. In times of continuous global expansion of individualism which is often tightly connected to capitalist exploitation, it communicates a clear message: a desire to build a collectivity. For an artist acting on her own, or a small niche label, it is a significant move towards creation of equitable access to works of art. This act is an actual and concrete contribution to a pool of culture shared by all, an entering of a work and its creator into a collective consciousness. It is not a supression of individual desires and rights – as would false dichotomy of collectivism vs individualism perhaps imply. Instead it is an opening of creative process towards the global community and the public. It is an abandonment of a phantasm of fame and fortune based on maximisation of profits, exploitation of copyright, and intellectual property. Publishing one’s work as free culture is an action of an individual desiring to communicate her art with a collective humanity. It is an intentional gift to any and every potential individual who thusly belongs to a global collective of humanity and is empowered to follow her individual creative paths: listening, learning, composing, reworking, remixing, and sharing.
Access Frame is a series of compilations of adventurous music published by Kamizdat under a Creative Commons licence on 14. July – International Netlabel Day. It tries to establish a practice of thinking critically about access to, and distribution of, art. It poses a question: what is the frame through which we are allowed, and able, to access culture? How is it created, by whom, and can such frame of access be modified and transgressed?
Today, Donnie Ozone continues his tradition of dropping Netlabel Day goodies for all of you to enjoy. Not sure if it’s this era of orange “presidents” and “fake news” getting to him or not, but with End of the Show (Mister Name) Donnie explores some darker territory than we’re used to hearing from him. Whatever it is… it sure makes for one hell of a listen! Don’t sleep!
Another dope one, Donnie! Thanks for delivering flavor for Netlabel Day!
Of course, thanks once again to you for downloading & listening. We always strive to deliver the music you’ll love. Please spread the word about blocSonic, if you enjoy what we do. Remember… everything we release is cool to share! Always keep the music moving… share it… blog it… podcast it! If you’re in radio… support independent music and broadcast it!
On July 9, Gilman Mom released an atmospheric nature music video for “Coast of Daylight”, the opening track on album Revisionist History. The video immerses the viewer in the arboreal world that the song lives in. Monkeys, flowers, and lamination abound, have fun delving into this video.
Faex Optim is back with another Netlabel Day EP. The master the abandoned places meets inspiring and nostalgic riffs and melodies (akin to Boards of Canada and the like) arrives with a four track EP entitled ‘As the Summer Die’.
Sentimental melodies, off key leads and glorious hip hop beats kick into live epic greats such as ‘Major Calendar’.
