ItalTek, in my opinion, is not only a great producer, but also embraces the idea that free music and paid music can live side by side without great stress. In testament to that (If you don’t already know his amazing Net-Lab releases), here is the new homepage for his self-publishing label AtomRiver, featuring a free download of Lightning Fields as well as links to buy the physical and MP3 releases (below).
Welcome again for another exciting time at Open Music. This months releases are pretty shit hot. Hip Hop, Wonky, NoiseBass, Collage and other misc noises, plus the next instalation of the Primer series drops yummy beats from all our current releases plus some bonus extras…
..and Open Music gets a shout-out! Cheers Jimmy!
“Previously you’ve released music through the Jamendo webspace but recently you joined the Open Music Net Label, do you hope to gain a little more exposure from working with them?
Net-labels are good for hearing great music you never would have heard before, for free. If you listen to the open music compilation ‘Primer Vol.1’, you will hear a wide variety of quality music by people who probably would have never appeared on a compilation together otherwise. Discovering new people who are on a similar wavelength, that’s the idea I like most about being involved with Open Music I suppose.”
I approached Lorn on a blag. Blown away by Running Ink on his myspace, I had hoped to snag it for the upcoming Primer 02. Little did we realise that he was down with a full length release, and just like that, the unbelievably slick 7&13 EP drop on our laps. A more american take on the same cut-up collage super-compressed hardness as Glitch Mob [featuring edIT Planet MU] french hard clipper Mr. Oizo and our own Syl Kougai. Very exciting.
