In a change to the usual weekly linking of three netlabel releases, this week I’m going to offer a profile of music, podcasts and mixes that are available on Mixcloud. Mixcloud is a website that allows people to stream podcasts, mixes, radio shows and more in a range of genres, from spoken word to full on mixes by major label artists. There’s a bit of something in there for everyone, but I’m going to highlight the netaudio and netlabel side of the Mixcloud menu.
You may have noticed that here at Fwonk*, we like us some Ohsaurus. Well Grappa Frisbee Records is Ohsaurus’ very own netlabel, and with that netlabel comes
great responsibility a Mixcloud account, full of great tracks, huge beats and more.
