10 Years afmusic: Free download compilation “Quintessence 2008 – 2018”
It’s been 10 years since we started the label; a lot has changed, and a lot hasn’t. Who would have thought that a small net label would have lasted this long?
Formed in 2008 as a digital label, we have successfully established the strategy to offer a large part of the repertoire as a net label under a free license. Now, we can look back at more than 150 releases which can still be found at archive.org. Next to those, there have been more than 100 CD or Vinyl releases in the Dark Wave-, Gothic-, Post Punk- and Independent-Genre.
Within the last 10 years, nameable indie bands like THE SEARCH and EMERALD PARK, as well as the Gothic Rock / Dark Wave veterans GOLDEN APES and the up-and-coming Post-Punk ensemble PRINCIPE VALIENTE were promoted and established.
On 1st of June, to celebrate our 10-Year-Anniversary, we will publish a free download compilation at Bandcamp containing 30 songs from bands who released CDs with us.
