One Million Downloads and Counting!

I’m always amazed at just how many people download my podcasts.  At the end of last year I was really pleased to see the number of downloads had doubled year-on-year from 233,293 in 2009 to 504,862 in 2010.  I was wondering if the trend would stay the same or decrease, but I’m even more amazed to say that it’s increased and during August 2011, the one million download mark was passed. In total there have been 1,111,257 downloads of the PCP, TDZ, DSZ and H2Z  shows, up to end of August 2011.

That’s not to say it’s all plain sailing. There have been some troughs as well as peaks in downloads over the years, and there’s been a massive drop in downloads of The Hip Hop Zone in the last month.

Nevertheless, I’d like to say a big “Thank You” to everyone who listens, to those that send me emails or website comments and share their love for the shows, and especially to the excellent artists, who make the shows possible.  If you especially love an artist or a track then please do follow the links in the show notes and say “Hi” to them! They will love you for it.

Please welcome: Angel Dust Records

I’ve been thinking about this for ages, but it’s taken a spot of cajoling from the likes of Clithers and my son, Mikey, to finally kick me into action: I have started a netlabel.

Two weeks ago, I registered the domain, started building the site and contacting some of my favourite artists. Since then I’ve figured out where the releases should be posted, how the music gets uploaded, sorted out creative commons licenses and legal agreements and BOOM! ….. the first release from Angel Dust Records has been released today.

[adr-001] Various Artists – Dust Particles, Volume One is a 6 track EP featuring some of my absolute favourite dub and dubstep tracks. You can download it today from Angel Dust Records and, over the next few days, I’ll be releasing it via other online sources.

A big thanks to Dr Remix, Mastermind XS, Baby Arm Sound System, Phoniandflore, 303db and Secret Archives of the Vatican for taking this leap of faith with me. Special thanks to Vince Millet (from SAotV) for the excellent artwork.

I hope you, the listener, will enjoy the first release. I’m now on the lookout for more artists for [adr-002]. If you have a recommendation, please drop me an email: [email protected].

A cup of beer (or two) in Berlin

I’m off again to Berlin next week and I really looking forward to meeting up with some Berlin netlabelists, musicians, podcasters and bloggers at one of their #tassebier (a cup of beer) meet-ups.

It all started with the interview I did in pcp#344 when I talked to Volker and Dub One! from Id.OEOLOGY and I told them I hoped to be back in the city again soon, and it would be good to talk over a beer.

Well that time has come, and Volker has invited a load of his fellow netaudio friends to join in.  It’s even been blogged about on the blog.rebellen.info website by Peter Withoutfield, so if you’re in the area, come and join us:

Time: Monday 23rd May from 8pm
Location: Fire Bar, Krausnickstraße 5, 10115 Berlin Location: Fire Bar, Nick Kraus Strasse 5, 10115 Berlin
