FBY music collection

2009-04-15 by

If you are a tracker user since the 90’s, you probably know FBY, alias Fabio Barzagli, one of the most reknown music makers in the demoscene of that times.

here he has released the complete collection of his music made with Amiga and PC trackers in the 80’s and the 90’s, also available in mp3 format.

as a sample, here you can list to “Jazzin”, a .MOD made with Commodore Amiga on 1995 with 4 tracks.. brilliant!

Jamendo vs. Last.fm, a comparison from an artist's side

2009-04-01 by

My friend Jenner Fusari alias NeuRoTiX has made an interesting analysis of his experience with Jamendo and Last.fm as his promotion platforms.

In his article, he shows how Jamendo has given more attention to his music, despite having much less visibility than Last.fm, and also describes how Jamendo cares to involve the artist in self-promotion.

last.fm radio becomes payware

2009-03-26 by

last.fm has announced that, since March the 30th, its radio streaming service will require a subscription fee of 3€/£/$ per month.

I’m not against pay sites; I acknowledge that running a site such as last.fm costs money and these money cannot be refund through advertising only, but what really bothers me is the fact that users from USA, UK and Germany will still not require paying, because in these 3 nations last.fm already pays its bills back through advertising and current subscriptions.

this idea is completely wrong in my opinion, discriminating and senseless.

A couple of better ideas would be:
a) let EVERYONE pay, and pay less (as low as 2€/month or 20€/year)
b) give the option to buy what you use, through pre-sold straming “packets” of 1,000 songs, for those people who do not make regular usage of last.fm radio.
