This week something quite unusual happened: I featured not only one but several netlabels that I had never played on the show. Netlabels used to be quite common when I first started the show in 2008, but with services like Bandcamp and Soundcloud, they seem to have fallen a bit out of place. There are exceptions, of course, but it’s almost ironic that the Netlabel Day initiative only became a thing last year. Maybe it’s just my European perspective. In fact, if we look at South America and Japan, the movement seems to be booming and netlabels are a crucial part of the local music scenes. And that can only be a good thing.
