What you need to know: There is a group that produces a weekly radio broadcast, stream, podcast and a free netlabel compilation. (How they can even do this thing on a weekly basis actually blows my mind.) And it is called Netwaves.
And if you do any listening to experimental, instrumental electronic music, you need to be a subscriber to this weekly playlist of all that is good and juicy on the internets.
This week’s compilation is a collection called Netwaves 324: Thrifty Flakes of Grey, an audio response to the worldwide phenomenon of the 50 Shades of Grey movie. Guess which output has more depth? Netwaves wins hands down with a combination of post-industrial dark ambient, devilishly-seductive electro, twisted IDM cut-pastery, and all sorts of ritualistic downtempo grooves which would be better suited as soundtrack to a story about whips, chains, and fantasies than the crap that actually came with the movie.
