This first set of free to download, Creative Commons-licensed MP3 releases from our electronica-based net.label, Monotonik (http://www.monotonik.com), were originally released from January 1999 to March 2001. They chronicle the period after Monotonik decided to stop releasing .MOD files, and start releasing those new-fangled (at the time!) .MP3s.
Some highlights might include Lackluster's languidly beautiful "Bothersome (Mother Mix)", later to feature on his lovely 'Container' album on DeFocus, Sense's Wonka-sampling "Bubble Blower", some bad-ass Hoffman material, a whole skewed album by Binary, and Vim's plain gorgeous "Thin Strips Of You".
This is simply one of the most essential collections of netmusic. Get them all, love them all! This releases (back in the days) were the reason to believe in netmusic. Thank you!!

What can I say? 6 hours of wonderful varied electronica (ignore the specific and artifical boundries). Mindnumbing highlights go out to the Hoffman, the Leak, the Sense (look him up here in archive.org), the Fun Tourist, and the Radix works.
