If you’ve been following what we do for long enough, you might have first heard MUTE’s “Is It Too Late For US All” when it made an appearance on “netBloc Vol. 15: this album won’t eat your gas money” back in mid-2008. A little over a year later, we brought you the great release by one half of MUTE… UNknown aka Formula’s “The Overcast Project” and then a little under another year, the other half of MUTE… Tha Silent Partner made his blocSonic release debut with “Tha...

A little over ten years ago, in 2002, I began working for SLAMjamz, the label run by Public Enemy’s Chuck D . I began by designing cover art for their digital single series. Among those digital singles were seven designed for Connecticut avante-garde power pop group, The Scallions , consisting of members Mike and Shawn Franklin . That eventually lead to me designing their SLAMjamz debut album “Agony Through Ceremony” in 2006. A year later I launched blocSonic and slowly molded it into the...

Are you ready to rock? I hope you are because today I’m excited to release the powerful debut EP, “Gryaznyj albom”/“The Dirty Album”, by the Russian band Vpopolam. They call their sound “anti-glamorous chanson-core”, a blend of funk, rock & grooves. At times the sound is reminiscent of Red Hot Chili Peppers and at other times, the sound’s hard to pin down. There’s one thing about it that’s very easy to pin down… these guys know how to make absolutely infectious music....

In the early 80s, while in my teens, I first heard hip-hop music and it was for me… there was simply something about it that spoke to me. It was the future. It was exciting and fresh. A musical genre in its infancy that was finding its way… learning who it was. It grew up over the years… it evolved… still learning about itself. It had a chance to sell out and took it. It embraced the good times and seemed to forget about the important things in life. Eventually it was even used and...

Back in the early noughts, Public Enemy ’s Chuck D formed the world’s first virtual rap squad called The Impossebulls from a group of talented fans who frequented PE’s online forum, the Enemy Board . In 2004, the Bulls released their sophomore album, “Slave Education” , to retail via Chuck D’s SLAMjamz Records . In partnership with SLAMjamz, blocSonic recently re-released this under-appreciated album in our special Xtended Edition deluxe format with a second disc packed with bonus...

Love of music is what the netBloc series is about. It’s not about hatred of the mainstream music industry; even though it may seem so sometimes (no matter how much I am against everything that the music industry represents these days). The fact of the matter is that there are artists; worldwide; who aren’t being heard because they don’t fit into some generic compartment that the current music industry has deemed economically viable. The industry has completely lost sight of the art. As...

After five years and 37 volumes of the netBloc series, I think it’s fair to say that blocSonic has turned on more than a few people to the netaudio culture. From the beginning, that was precisely why I began the series. I strive to make each volume eclectic and packed with information about each track. Combine that with the professionally designed art & PDF and what you’re left with is a compilation that serves as a great way to catch up on what’s been happening in netaudio culture....

Each volume brings with it a finely crafted potpourri of artists, labels and genres. Take this volume, for example. In it you’ll find yourself listening to electronic music by et_ coming out of Russia and then immediately following that, an electronic gem by Normaa, coming to you out of Spain. This stop-over...

When I did, his EP, Country Western Star (CWS), immediately struck a chord and I emailed him back to find out how he’d like to approach the release. Since he had previously released it, we decided to give it the XE treatment, adding a bonus track to the original EP and his 2013 beat tape, Beats For Shadowball (BFS), rounding...

It all started sometime last year with a friend of mine, Rob Pitt , saying that he’d love it if there were a “minimal” netBloc release. However, with the netBloc series being about variety, I felt that I couldn’t release something so narrowly focused on one sub-genre. If I were to put together something remotely like that, it had to be something more varied. I decided to begin slowly pulling together instrumental netaudio gems as I came across them while developing other netBloc...

Hip-hop is an incredibly diverse musical genre that has a bad reputation no thanks to the American mainstream branch of it. People who write-off hip-hop as idiotic, materialistic, violent or misogynist are only getting a small slice of what it’s about. Since hip-hop has become international there are a wide array of ideas about what hip-hop should be today in 2009 and beyond. Anyone who has ever enjoyed the music will gladly give you their opinion about what “real” hip-hop is. Truth be...
