This is essential reading when it comes to the importance and value of archiving Net labels. I have already recommended a number of sites that promote net label artist and I will continue to do so. I have also been fortunate to have a number of my own works released on various net labels. The net label community remains one of the most exciting places to explore new and innovative music on the web; it would be a real pity if the artistic contributions of many were never archived. The curators who run many of these sites and blogs also need to be acknowledged and supported. Their discoveries are our rewards.
