This is a new section added to the blog. Netlabels. Under this tag you will find extensive description of good places to find free music of astounding quality. I know very well that finding good free music on the web may be a time-demanding and sometimes frustrating activity. But finding good netlabels is even more difficult.

Those who have tried to roam the list at know what I am talking about. Sometimes they exist no longer, their releases and artists cast into the void, sometimes they are offline, their website is so badly made that you can never find your way, and sometimes, well, it is just one lone artist starting his or her netlabel, and that stays empty for so long it gets forgotten. And thus I want to emphasise and focus on very good, lively, literally living netlabels, that continue to be constantly updated with new sounds, new artists from all around the world, and more work for us free-music diggers.

I want to start this section with the first netlabel I have ever heard of. It was during a goa trance party in Belgium. Around a fire a man approached me and started to talk about making and listening to music. He finally mentioned Ektoplazm as a place packed with good music that was also completely free. I couldn't believe it so I tried, got to their website, and began downloading everything without even listening to it. I discovered many styles I was not aware of, such as full-on psytrance, psycore, darkpsy, suomi trance, techtrance (or psytech), psydub, and others I will mention later.

This proved the first difficulty you come to with free music : everything is not good, far from it. If you are aware of that then with time and patient ears you will make your way through a lot of music that sounds the same every time, to get to the real rare pearls of genius musical expressions.  There are really good sounds to be found on Ektoplazm. When you think you've got around it, there is more to be found, and this is all thanks to DJ Basilisk and his team of dedicated music lovers, who work hard to get the site up and running.

On Ektoplazm you can browse a lot of music in the following genres : Full-On Darkpsy Progressive Downtempo Goa Twilight Psycore Morning Forest Techno Techtrance Zenonesque Experimental Psy Dub Deep Trance Glitch Suomi Ambient Minimal IDM Classic Psystep Uplifting Psybreaks Tribal and Drum & Bass

On this website I discovered artists such as Hypnoxock, HelixNebula, MentalImage, Electronic Grind and others who stay in my personal favourites, the ones I share the most, if there is such a thing.

Now visit Ektoplazm and give it a go, every album comes with an extensive description, comments, and a player to preview it in its entirety before downloading it for free. If you like Ektoplazm, then you can also consider donating to the team via the Donate link. Every little bit helps !

The same, if you like La Mojoteque, then share it with your parents and your English Literature Professor.
