Cologne Commons 2010

The Cologne Commons is a conference and festival for digital culture happening on a yearly basis in Cologne, Germany. It’s a rather small festival but with lots of interesting people coming from many parts of the world for playing and listening to music, having discussions and sharing ideas or for simply enjoying the time and having a beer. This year I had the pleasure to attend to this cozy festival and to play a one hour live DJ set.
I was invited and presented as the “Godfather of Netaudio”. The reason behind is that I most possibly shared the first netaudio only DJ sets back in 2001 (under the SUBSOURCE umbrella) and I organized the first netaudio parties also in that days. Now the idea was to somehow reflect this status with a DJ set which would cover the history of the netmusic scene. Of course it sounds impossible to have all the highlights and all the styles of almost a decade of netmusic combined into a short DJ set but I simply started playing.

The set starts with some droning ambient and fades into the world of playful IDM which was quite popular on the net in the beginning of this century. Fascinating music which brought me personally even closer to netmusic and which is still very enjoyable. After that part the set turns into a Four-on-the-floor house and techno set. Back in the days it was quite hard to create such a DJ set made only with netaudio tunes. There simply was no such music free on the net. Fortunately, this has changed nowadays. The set presents some of the classic floor movers as well as some current flavors.

Finally I decided to edit the live recorded DJ set in order to provide an alternative ending and to play some additional tunes which I somehow missed to play live. Please enjoy this set and be shareful!

[in]anace is a virtual DJ born on the internet with a strong aim to catch all the interesting and exciting sounds out there. He chooses out of a huge repertoire of electronic music which is available in his virtual world. Many different styles and tunes are combined and mixed. Depending on mood and the environment the sets are for exploring acoustic landscapes as well as for dancing feets off and sometimes both of it. Some say that because of his special way of selecting and mixing music the DJ sets are telling stories. The specialty is that the music used in the mixes is freely released on the internet mostly on netlabels and so are the mixes: they are free, as music should be.

He also produced some electronica tracks in his bed room studio and by the way he found Subsource, one of the first German netlabel. Later on he invented netaudio DJ sets.
