Fabled Enemies Live! by Chris

I’ve spoken just recently about my lack of multi-linguistic talent, but this one’s pretty simple…

Fabled Enemies are one of the select few artists to earn the Fuck the Radio ‘brilliant’ tag, and they sure did deserve it!

Finally bringing their dubstep/glitch-hop sound to the live stage, the guys need votes to play in Melkweg Amsterdam, and it’s so simple to vote that it should be a crime not to.

The website is in Dutch, but if I could figure it out, I’m sure you can too- and considering a substantial amount of my readership is from The Netherlands (hinting at the fact that you must need weed to enjoy my blog) I’m sure there won’t be any confusion when it comes to clicking this link -> http://www.groteprijsvan.nl/deelnemer/fabled-enemies/ and pressing the big blue button that says ‘STEM!’

Help ’em out!

You can also check out their music on this blog or at their Soundcloud page.



Censorship and Blogging by Chris

Last night, popular Melbourne-based dubstep music blog Daftwho? had it’s Mediafire account deleted in the wake of the US Government’s recent over-zealous crusade against online piracy, loosing 2,300+ songs.

Many of these songs were promotional copies that the artists had sent to Daftwho? with the hopes that their music would be promoted to a wide audience of potential fans. The blog was very successful for this purpose, with many underground and unheard-of artists gaining fans out of those who had downloaded their music off the blog for free.

As you probably know, Fuck the Radio also utilizes Mediafire to distribute its content and operates under a very similar posting model.  Copyrighted tracks have been posted on FTR in the past; however due to several DMCA clashes and several artists contacting me with requests for removal- I haven’t operated with that method for quite some time, instead opting to only promote artists who are already granting free promotional downloads, with a special focus on those who deserve more attention than they are getting for their creation.

Artists celebrate blogs such as Daftwho? and Fuck the Radio for sharing their creations, while the ‘content-mafia’ such as the RIAA cling to obsolete business models which primarily serve the industry’s business side rather than independent and highly talented artists. Recent lobbying of the government by these companies has resulted in legislation such as Stop Online Priacy Act (SOPA), Protect-IP Act (PIPA) (which we’ve all heard so much about) and the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA) which threatens our civil liberties, freedom of speech, net neutrality, right to online privacy and damages creative freedom for artists.

Support independent record labels, support independent artists, support independent blogs and music.

Happy New Year!

It’s been an exciting year for Fuck the Radio in 2011, more than tripling the average daily reader count- receiving  several DMCA complaints, and the launch (and subsequent censorship) of the Fuck The Radio Radio Show.

Regular readers will be familiar with the coveted ‘brilliance’ tag on the blog- awarded to tracks that are truly in a class of their own. For new years this year I’ve collected said brilliant tracks into one neat little package. For your downloading pleasure. This very special Fuck the Radio Brilliance Vol. 1 contains every track (that did not receive a DMCA take-down shake-down notice) tagged as brilliant since the blog’s creation.

You can find it HERE

The track-listing goes:

OpiuoRobo Booty

El Ten ElevenHot Cakes

Stateless – Ariel

Fabled Enemies The Prophecy

Nosaj Thing 1685/Bach

Lemon Jelly – Page One

Pretty Lights – Something’s Wrong

James Blake Air and Lack Thereof

Skream Midnight Request Line

Secret Knives – Black Hole

A.Bliss.Abyss Sakajaweea

Inaudible – Echo Chamber

Polographia – Righteous Hit

😀 It’s a MUST HAVE for anybody looking for some great new music, with genres including dubstep, glitch-hop, chillwave and shoegaze- it’s a great example of the sounds the Fuck the Radio blog loves so much.

DOWNLOAD IT HERE

In addition to the mixtape, you can find the complete 2010 and 2011 catalogues here (2010) and here (2011) for some more music if you like!

Now 2012 is a New Year and there are several ideas in the works to make even FTR bigger and better. The most important change will be that the focus will now be on independent and largely undiscovered artists that I come cross in my digi-digging. Remember, if you are an artist yourself- keep sending in links to your music at fucktheradio@dubcage.com or even on facebook.com/ftheradioblog.

Now it’s New Years, time to get drunk.
