If you love discovering great netlabel artists as much as I do, you’ll enjoy this episode. There’s plenty of netlabel goodies in #58 — some favorites that you’ve heard before in this series, like Phour Trakk (Ideology) and Fonogeri (Jamendo) — and some other discoveries for which I can thank Phlow Magazine (don’t miss their great 2009 advent/retrospective) and Blocsonic’s amazing compilations.
In addition, I’ve included early net-music pioneers Kush and a track from the newest and ultra-smooth chillout release from Sine Music ….”Chillbar, Volume 2.” They’ve been putting out consistently high-quality releases all year.
But let’s get right to it. Here’s the tracklist:

Hyperstory leads this episode with a track from their new album.
This episode begins with a couple of great, chilled vocal tracks — first, from Hyperstory, who’s just released their debut album (also titled “Hyperstory”) in November. Following that is the trip-hoppy Screenatorium, who’s been featured before in this podcast series. Next up is Evan Bluetech, with a brand-new track that has a slightly balkan feel to it — from his new EP, “Call of the Wild.” Then we slow down a bit with Global Journey’s “Acquiesce,” from their series of themed music releases.
And what follows after that is a mélange of cinematic beats, dub, fusion, and rich headphone music– some whom you’ve never heard before in this series, and new tracks from old friends like Cardamar. Enjoy!

But there’s plenty of new stuff, too: Alu (an electronica artist who was featured in the compilation “Digital Bliss, Volume 1″), Przasnik, Lucid Picnic (Serhan Berberoglu–whom you might know from his tracks on some Peak Records compilations, as well as his other project, Oblivion Garden), Frank Clayton, and Berlin producer fLako, who teamed up with Canadian hip hop chanteuse Amenta and made this cutting-edge gem.

Another one of Suhov's projects, Jószomszéd, has a track in this milestone episode
uploaded 08 August 2009
AAC version (iTunes, iPod, with graphics)
It’s a milestone — episode #50 — with 13 horizon-expanding tracks. Let’s put on our headphones and celebrate together…
Andreas Schneider of the XtraChill podcast in Germany joins us to introduce the first track, which he chose just for us: Adult Only’s “Overlove.” Find it on Jamendo.
After the sophisticated chill of Adult Only, we get into some electro fusion: enjoy Tikki Masala (from Belgium) and Metastaz (from France), with “Maha Devi Shamboo” and “Resistance.” From there we move into some trip-hoppy beats:Motown Junkie’s “Farlopa Satanica,” Jószomszéd’s gorgeous, soulful “Csak az olvassa,” from their new album “Az ajtó,” Degiheugi’s eclectically epic “Mes nuits tziganes,” Geigermeister’s “Slow Groove,” and Flow Inc’s delicately heavy “Lost and Found,” from his EP, “Controlled Variables.”
Then, with a nod to earlier episodes of this podcast, we include a track from Germany’s Calm Be: “Again” — another classic gem from the Sofasound netlabel, which presented a gold mine of brilliant music circa 2005, but has not been updating its site for awhile.
The last three tracks are some of the many goodies of Jamendo.com: Maya de Luna, with the electro-chanson track “Les ondes de survie,” Pavel Fomitchov, with “Erotic Dream,” from the wonderful Tunguska Chillout compilation series, and Brazil’s Kaparao, with “Ybytyrama,” a lovely, soaring track that will leave you feeling really good.
Thanks for listening … it’s wonderful to have 50 episodes online for you to enjoy. Please send me an email to let me know what you enjoy, or what you’d like to hear on future episodes. See you next time!
