Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

There's plenty of good stuff out on the netlabel, why not having an official best of release, ideally with remastered tracks?

It could follow the usual process, but we would consider all past releases as submissions and a panel of judges would pick the best ones.

It could be a fucking killer release.

Re: Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

no no joke, IDMf050 would be the beautiful best of release idmf deserves! i think 50 release pary is a great way to kick off the netlabel's triumph. it could be super organized and super promoted. idk if that's not the eay to go, but for me personally, nothing would put a bigger smile on my face to be a part of a 50 release party community. sounds special, to all of us. but whatever 050 is, i know its gonna be cool be it a va compilation, a special vid, or a personal release- either way, we get to be a part of an amazing netlabel with amazing music.

Re: Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

I'm going to have to say No Floors-Oil And Blood because of its overall production value and it's very nature. Honestly, its one of my favorite albums of all time. Of course I will throw in RFJ-Of Storybook And Sound because of the work that went into it and RFJ came a long way not only as an artist, but as a person and has inspired me very much in both of those as well. Both are Damn good releases.

Do it as a resume/CV, rather than 'Best of'.

Re: Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

I think, to be fair to everyone, the guys should just pick individual tracks and not any one album released by the label in the past..make it a real mixed bag of music, that would reflect the community nature of the forum in general..meaning there are a lot of different tastes and styles represented on here and any "best of" release should reflect that, rather than just putting out a remastered album that's be released in the past already. Just putting it out there..

Re: Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

I'm not really sure why the label would re-release free mp3s tbh. Maybe as a promotional thing I guess but why not just compile your very own personal best-of instead?
I dunno, I just don't see the point in putting effort into debating, voting and compiling tracks when anyone who wants to can just dl the entire catalog, listen through, pick their favourites and chuck them into a new folder.

There was/is a vinyl release rumoured for 50 though.

Re: Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

I can understand the idea of a "Greatest Blips" release, If for no better reason than to blow the socks off the noob that is about to have their sensory glands trembled for the first time. Also, I believe Roo mentioned something along the lines of a resume/cv. A single release that captures the absolutely raw, untamed beauty of IDMf savage cuntery. Shit, I would check it out and share it with my human friends. Possibilities are endless when the world is your oyster.

I know what you mean, but a compilation or "taster" release of some of the finest tracks every released by the label would be a good way to celebrate the 50 release milestone..or any other future landmark release number for that matter..it being just what it would be..a looking back on what's been achieved by the label and artists on here together..and that's something I think that's very worth the time and effort doing..just saying.

Re: Suggestion: Best Of IDMf netlabel release

I haven't been around a while but I noticed the interrupted comp thread and the dicussion inside. I was thinking of ways to market community projects to us, the members, that would actually require a lot of effort from the individual, to be apart of. I also fully respect the idea that this music is freely available for anyone to grab their favorite tracks and make their own playlist and go about their day. But, I think there is potential for a community project, or multiple projects to keep the community involved. Interested.

Before you read any further though, I guess with the absence of a certain person does make me want to ask is the catalogue even available to be reworked into new releases like this? If not, them =/

Now, I'm not going to say I have any experience in driving the short bus to guide us all to the finish line but I do remember when I first joined there were a lot of back to back projects to be excited about. And, even though the Beat Tapes didn't make it through the entire run of genres planned, that was still an interesting idea and project to be apart of. I feel like it was even more exciting because it didn't feel like there was much lag time between one thing to the next.

So, my thoughts are something like this could be a lesser involved project the community can be apart of, while marketing the idea the community does compilations and offers the submission of demo's. All the while getting people diving into the albums, possibly the same people that wouldn't have ever checked them out 2 days prior.

My change to one big release would be to break these down into volumes. So say like releases 001-010, 011-020, etc. Or even pull the VA comps into their own project and do the artist releases seperately. That way it doesn't have to be one big project and can be done more than just once. Plus, there are just so many releases it would be hard to pick, say 2 or 3 tracks over everything. But, i would say keep the selections private so no one leeches off another person.

Even possibly while people are communicating about how much fun they're having going through the catalogue(if that's the case) throw out the idea of a VA comp coming or whatever.

Maybe the same people that would never listen to a netlabel release, never participate with a sub, are now wanting to get involved.

Lastly, I know we as a community shouldn't have to be poked into wanting to be apart of community-related projects and on top of that, I also know the people that take these things on are few and far between. I will definitely help out in any capacity I can. Even if it weren't this but something else.
