Hopefully you are familiar with the concept of getting back what you put out. Had you phrased your inquiry and observations in another way you would be met differently than you are about to be….
First off I’ll give you the SoundCloud, the spam comments and the logo. The only thing I can do about that in the short term is the logo and I have not the time nor space currently to do that. Frankly, the logo is the last thing on my mind.
As for the other stuff…
You realize everything in the world isn’t always about you, right? In fact, 99.9999999999% of things rarely are about you.
What do I mean by that?
Our selection here has nothing to do with Cybernetic Dreamscape or our opinion of it. We selected the track we did for a multitude of reasons, none of which had to do with your track, specifically.
We have a feedback and suggestion section of the forum, by the way. We welcome constructive criticism. But what you have done is come in here, shit talked a fellow artist, called what we do a farse and performed a public takedown of what we do.
News flash, we do this as a hobby. Sure, we have a great affinity for electronic music, the IDMfNetlabel Catalog, and have plans over this year to do some things to hopefully see it grow. However, nobody gives a shit about people like us any more. It’s not 2010. Therefore, the label tries to think of itself in a realistic way and conduct itself as such, which I would encourage you to do the same.
We are limited by our lives and time but we make efforts to do the best we can with what we have given our own personal constraints. Until recently the netlabel was composed of a team of 1. As of last month it’s expanded to two which we are hoping can breathe some new life into what we are doing. Ideally the results of which would bear themselves out in SoundCloud plays, logos etc. However, it’s a long shot that it will but we will continue to try due to our love for IDMfNetlabel history which I mentioned earlier.
If you would like some insight on why Cybernetic Dreamscape was not selected as our first single I would encourage you to post it up in the listening booth and ask. I can honestly say, had we have released 066 in its original form your track would have been on there. I cannot say the same for everyone else who submitted.
All that to say, we liked your track but we didn’t think the release was going to work as a whole. So, we canned it and went this way. @Manton and I refuse to carry on with the label the way it has and therefore, with this release, there were 14 casualties - your precious Cybernetic Dreamscape being one of them.
I would encourage you to grab the stems Breath of the Abyss provided and see what you can do with them for this comp, like everyone else. However, your behavior here isn’t really representative of the kind of behavior we’d like to see from netlabel artists. So, at this point I’d say your submission would be a long shot. You would basically need to reinvent Aphex Twin at this point and based on your previous submission I’d say….that’s a long shot.
But, look on the bright side, the IDMfnetlabel is a “farse” anyway so it shouldn’t be too much skin off your nose as it is.
If I didn’t encourage you to post your track I’d just ban you, which I might do anyway. But for now I’ll leave that be because I’m responding out of emotion and might think better of it in the morning.
@Manton feel free to ban him if you want as I’ll probably still want to do it tomorrow anyway.
