Satan's Tastemakers is dedicated to netlabels, free music, crowd funded and sourced and Creative Commons releases. Co-hosts P. Emerson Williams and TheeBradMiller socialize, wine and dine and indentify the most prolific and interesting free music outlets on the web to offer you info on the best in free music, and seek to unearth artists and labels who have found new methods for music distribution in a fertile digital media landscape.
P2P, copying and sharing is the devil's work, so therefore, we are Satan's Tastemakers!
In this era of Disney's infinite copyright, when public domain films can be pulled out again and people who should be charged with finding terrorists are raiding file sharers, it's time to let the mainstream industry wall itself off and avail oneself of the bounty offered by artists and labels who are operating in the current reality and not the previous. Spettro Records are a true collective with a well thought out philosophy and manifesto. They are more an exploration than a way to grab attention. The work they present encompasses sonic experiments along with photography, drawing and painting. Ankst are an established band in their chosen genre who decided that the art is the reason they're doing it and therefore all their art is free. We get a privileged look into their palacial facilities, but not a tour of the extensive grounds this time...
