After a couple back to back original blocSonic releases, I’m back to introduce you to the latest in the blocSonic netBloc series. This batch of netaudio gems is packed with ear candy. I have little doubt that you’ll find at least a couple tracks that you also call gems. Who knows, perhaps you’ll call them all gems, just as I do! So what exactly is packed in this release? You have operatic vocals with a metal, swing backing. You have straight-up hip-hop. You have electro-pop....

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...

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...

We set things off in 2007 with our premiere release, “ netBloc Vol. 1: The Opening Salvo ”. Even at that early stage, I knew that I wanted blocSonic to be a bit more than your standard “netlabel”. I didn’t want blocSonic to be completely self-serving… it was to be a promotional vehicle for netlabels, artists and the netaudio culture. However, what I didn’t know was if artists and netlabels were going to be supportive of the compilation idea and send me lossless versions of their...

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...

Spanish musician Mikel Martínez began his journey as aitänna77 in 2007. From that year on to 2012 the journey took him from folktronica to bedroom pop to cloud-rap. In 2015, after three years of focus and study, he returned with Patterns For Smartness , a collection of dreamy and ethereal songs (much in the same vein as Boards of Canada and Broadcast ). Then in 2017, that sound collided with the raw and organic beat-making technique of producers like Madlib or RZA on Any Place But Here ....

Back in September of 2009, a label started by our own Just Plain Ant , Just Plain Sounds , released a tasty gem by The Honorable Sleaze … the release was named Summer Fresh and featured a personal favorite, “God Damn” among other fresh joints. Now, closing in on five years later, I figured it would be cool to return the spotlight to the album and give it an Xtended Edition re-release.

Of course we didn’t invent the compilation! Duh! No really! We didn’t… seriously! Why do you doubt me? Even though we didn’t invent them it doesn’t mean we didn’t perfect them… so here’s another perfect compilation for your soul to absorb via your ear canals. A collection of 11 tracks plus one sampler. That’s two bonus tracks on top of the standard 10 track line-up! Whoa! Crazy! I loved the Jay Slim release so much that I simply couldn’t contain myself to only one track....
