Hi, welcome to the first post, and a new start for Fwonk*. We’ve given the site an overhaul, added a blog to bring extra features to lovely listeners out there, give musicians more chance to become involved in and be part of Fwonk*, and bring you exciting new features that will be introduced, added and developed over the coming months. So what’s going to be happening?
Yeah, you read the right. Remix competitions – we’ll be running competitions with remixes of the latest dancefloor tunes, or tracks from Fwonk*s very own archives. Details will be announced here, and you’ll be able to follow progress on the forum. The sets of finished songs will be featured on our Soundcloud pages.
We will be launching a monthly podcast or radio show featuring some of the very best, and very freshest Creative Commons released music and the best that Fwonk* can slap you between the lugholes with. Featuring a roster of DJs curating their own choice of material, this will be a varied listen, bringing you the tunes the breadth and depth of popular (and unpopular) music. Shows can be streamed from Mixcloud, but also downloaded from us here.
Greater flexibility for artists
For existing artists within Fwonk*, or those who want to become part of the netlabel and community, we offer the chance to have your own Fwonk* subdomain for your own Bandcamp page. This means that a normal Fwonk* release can be hosted on your very own Bandcamp page. You host your own music, and are responsible for the format of it, and you control it.
Tutorials and more!
This blog is going to be the gateway to online tutorials – a great series of Ableton Live videos is ready – some links to some great tunes and other music sources, and much, much more.
And if all this works, we’ll do even more.
