Two days ago here was a Filthy Dukes Dj mix, that their German record company sent us to be posted. It was meant as promotion for the party we will have in december with their band. It has been deleted by Google (who are the owners of "blogger"!)
I thought it's time we not only share music with you but also a thought:
Maybe you realized (well, you probably didn't...) that we sometimes post music and the complete posts disappear soon after. This happens to all kinds of music-blogs now for some time and causes a great confusion!
Well, it's definetly not David Copperfield, who does it with his magic hands. The content is taken away by Google/Blogger, when somebody tells them that there is a copyright problem with the post. There are no questions asked, it is done immediately. Afterwards we receive an email from blogger telling us that they did so and that there is a website called The chilling effects, where the notice they received should be published soon. Well, we (all blogs) are waiting for months now for these notices to get public, so it looks more like a cool way to keep the bloggers quiet.
Well, of course we are living on thin ice here in the music-blogger's world, because what we do is not legal in a traditional sense. But since the start we are heavily supported by many bands and even labels in our work, because blogs have become a modern way of spreading new music to make it heard (and some bands/labels understood that and use this effect).
Maybe they support us and send us their mp3s, because they can see, that we (and some other influential music blogs) NEVER post more than one song from an album/12 Inch from an artist (especially not his complete catalogue...), because we always just tease you with a song that we like and then hope/pray to get "at least some of you" to buy the stuff! (that's why we add links for beatport, Juno, Itunes etc...).
Anybody who has a problem with our posts can contact us directly by mail and - as stated several times on top of our site - we will take away the links to the music immediately. It would be easy.
And more, what has been deleted very often recently was Dj-mixes with lots of diffrent songs, where somebody obviously was not okay with one of the songs being used! C'mon! A Dj-mix? That's pure promotion for any artist in the mix because the songs are of course in the mix and not complete. Really hard to understand that!
There is no way to find out, which song (of the dj-mix) was problematic, until the notice at The chilling effects will be up, which - we think - will never happen.
If you are interested in finding out more about this new development in blogging, go to our friends at PALMSOUT. They started a discussion (and a courtcase against google) on the topic and so far they received 56 comments about it, which are also worth reading, because they are pro and contra.
And maybe you should know, there are also political posts in political blogs (on Sarah Palin for example) that have been deleted that way without explanation... And this is where it gets interesting/dangerous in my eyes!

Please don't get me wrong, we know, that our "music-blog" problems are only a tiny piece of flyshit compared to that...
