I was hoping that I wouldn’t have write anything about this happening to me, as I am trying to promote the artists I love, by posting tracks by new bands either without label representation or new to a label to get the word out or rare remixes and other tracks which you can’t buy but I still love by more major artists.
Anyway, my file host was recently forced to remove my account on the request of the IFPI and I have voluntarily removed the zipped remixes for the time being until I hear a bit more about which were the offending files. I am going to have to obtain written permission from the bands/artists before posting any more tracks. That means that my planned post of Soulwax remixes and Hot Chip remixes II will be delayed/cancelled depending on theviews of the bands’/artists’ management.
I will still be posting new music, so don’t worry about that, but this might take a few days to sort out.
I will be keeping you all posted on what happens.
