With great records and amazing throwbacks, this week’s session was all about free music. We visited some of the best (in)active netlabels, played some records that were just sort ot out of the press and heard songs in Swedish, Ukrainian and Spanish. This on top of the usual English-sung tracks, of course. This was also a particularly rich session in terms of music genres, as we covered a hand-full of them: indie, rock, pop, house and even tango.

Another relaxing evening on Spark Sunderland with a delightful soundtrack, straight from some of coolest netlabels around (even if some of them stopped publishing records). While I decided to let summer fade away smoothly, I also didn’t resist to add some more powered tracks into the mix. Also, September will be packed with surprises and great things on White Market, including some next week’s interview with FMA director, Cheyenne Hohman. Stay tuned!
