Podcast November 2010 – Five years now!

For the cover I used a photo by Greg Turner [CC BY-NC-SA]

Two remarkable dates for this episode: We started this thingie here in November 2005, so we have now 5 years of Machtdose Podcast. And during this episode we also present the 1,000th track in the history of the podcast.

So, time for a short retrospection and some statistics. I’m still overwhelmed of the richness, diversity, surprises & vitality of the netlabel scene. Although I don’t play exclusively tracks from netlabels this is still my main focus because I also still believe in the idea of the concept „label“. Therfore I want to thank all artists and especially the label makers for their great work. Here’s not the space to name them all , but I want at least mention some, namely the ones which gave us the most input, that are: 12rec.net (18 times in our show) / Clinical Archives, Maltine Records (14 times) / Dusted Wax Kingdom (13) / Acroplane_Recordings, Corpid, kreislauf (12) / Tropic, monotonik, MiMi Records, Bump Foot, broque, 8bitpeoples (11) / The Poni Republic, Laridae (9) / WM Recordings, Budabeats (8) … and I could lengthen that list to a kilometer, so I have to stop. But you can have this complete (!) list all ever-played tracks (will be constantly updated from now on). So, to all of you, wonderful netlabels & artists out there – mentioned or not -: thank you, thank you, thank you.

What also impresses me is not only the variety of styles and genres you still find, but also that we have collected tracks from a lot of countries, more or less the half of the United Nations, we have had music from artists & labels out of: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republik, Denmark, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Moldova, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The United Kingdom, Ukraine, Uruquay, The United States of America and Venezuela. Hello World!

I don’t know if I will do this podcast for another five years, but right at the moment I think: why not. As long as I get so much fantastic music, the chances are not too bad.
