You look fine.
The way you are. A few pounds more or less than in the magazines, taller or smaller than the regular average. It doesn’t matter. You’re my music. You have your moments of passion and silence. You can take me down to the hole and higher than the sky. It doesn’t matter cause everything is fine. And you look fine.
I dig material released on netlabels. Netlabels have hundreds of super tracks and albums that mainstream music should envy. Despite the fact that it was released a while ago i still love what aaahh records has come up with. Nice, beautiful music, produced with talent and effort.
“aaahh records – what is that?
We are a netlabel and we offer you free music.
Ok, question answered, but that was probably a little short. So here comes the long version:
aaahh was born in may 2008 in the German city of Bielefeld, grey pearl of Westphalia. We started as a humble netlabel – something we still are, in a way – but everything has grown a little less humble and a little less netlabelish over the past years. In case you are not familiar with the world of netlabels, it might help to read the following passage first. If you think you know the basic stuff, just skip it.
Probably the most important part to know, is that we work on the basis of Creative Commons licences. We bet you have seen this © on several products. It’s almost impossible to avoid. It means that all rights on a specific product are reserved. Let’s imagine your product is a cd filled with some songs licenced under classic copyright. In that case you are allowed to listen to it after you paid for it and that’s it. It’s not really yours, it belongs to someone else in a very strict sense.”

Entertainment for the Braindead is German band from Cologne lead by Julia Kotowski, singer and composer. As said in the band’s official bio, their music is far from the madding clubbing crowd. It’s a cocoon, a case which shelters some of the most beautiful jewels.

The band has released two albums and an EP. All of them are for free. I definitely recommend you to download Roadkill, the second album, which is pure magic.

CSLSX is a band from Philadelphia. That’s all you’ll know ! Using (for the moment) web mystery as a promoting tool, the band is however playing live. Certainly the best incentive to get you to see them on stage. They have something of post-rock, electro with a pinch of disco. So to sum up they have their own style !

Another style, still beautiful sensations. Jamrock following his superb previous releases has come up with a rework of The Weeknd’s High for This. Deep bass, smoothing trap beats.

Misun – Coffee (Gavin Holland Remix)
[soundcloud url=”http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/48823794″ params=”” width=” 100%” height=”100″ iframe=”true” /]
“The three multifaceted band members of the DC aquawave/emo-pop band Misun (pronounced ‘me-sun’) met while working in different capacities at the Dupont Circle bar/restaurant, Science Club in 2010. At the time vocalist Misun Wojcik waitressed part-time, often sharing overlapping shifts with resident DJs William DeVon (guitar) and Nacey (production/keys). The three soon discovered a common musical bond and began writing and recording in Nacey’s bedroom studio on U Street. The band’s marine-inspired debut EP organically combines influences from folk to EDM to soul. The 6 songs are available together for free download on T&A Record. The remix EP is a veritable family affair, featuring a range of remixes from longtime friends Steve Starks, Cousin Cole, Gavin Holland, Billy the Gent, Londres and WIlliam Devon.”

French producer Joris Delacroix has released a feeric remix of Oliver Schories Sunset track. The organ, the guitar licks make me feel like being in a kind of surrealist western movie.
