Netlabel Day has arrived!

C-Doc - Do Androids Die For Electric Sins?

Hey kids… do you like movies? What about “Blade Runner”? If so, you’re going to enjoy C-Doc’s homage to the classic sci-fi film and Philip K. Dick. “Do Androids Die For Electric Sins?” is a great collection of instrumentals with synths, dirty loops and C-Doc’s magic touch. What more could you want?? Perfect for Netlabel Day!

C-Doc… describe in single words only the good things that come into your mind about… your album.

The Impossebulls - Back To It b/w 5 x 5

You had to know that we wouldn’t half-step for Netlabel Day, right? Well we sho-nuff did not. On top of the NINE releases we have for you today (which is dope in and of itself) we’ve got a FRESH new maxBloc by The Impossebulls, and one that features yet another hip-hop legend from the golden era! Yeah… do you remember that legendary crew from the 80s, Stetsasonic? Of course you do… if you don’t you’re new to this hip-hop thing. Well Stet’s own Daddy-O hooked up with the Bulls to help deliver the infectious and fierce new joint “Back To It”! Crazy, right?!? Of course, if that wasn’t enough, we’ve got some other alternate versions / remixes of goodies from the forthcoming album “The Devils You Know” and something that was previously only available on cassette, featuring CM aka Create and DJ Def Chad. So, word… we delivered and hope you dig the sounds.

Infinite thanks to The Impossebulls for bringing some incredible new music to blocSonic for Netlabel Day! Even more thanks to the legendary Daddy-O for being a part of what we do… for real! I count Stetsasonic among my favorite groups… not rap groups… groups… of all time. Thanks also to all collaborators… it’s truly amazing how much talent the Bulls are surrounded by.

mGee - MK31

Begun as a way to use a Public Domain film to inspire creativity, mGee found his groove and ended up putting together this tasty EP of electronic goodness for Netlabel Day. In addition to that, he’s also released one of our premiere samplePacks composed of sounds used in the creation of “MK31”. So, if you dig the sounds you hear and would like to see what you could come up with, go grab it and make something!

I’m so happy to announce that today we launch a terrific new series of releases that’s designed to give back to the Creative Commons community who has been so good to us over the years. The new samplePack series is blocSonic’s own format for distributing very liberally licensed samples that creators can use however they’d like… all we ask is that the samplePack artist and blocSonic are credited. That’s right, every release in the series is licensed with a very sample friendly CC-BY license.
