Monotonik Turns 10! Massive Tribute Mix!

Simon says [lol]:
“So, we made it – ’10 Years Of Monotonik – The Mix’ is testament to
that. It’s hard to believe that it was in early 1996 that we first
started up our net.label Mono – initially as a .MOD-only label, since
this was before the days of MP3s (and, indeed, of very wide use of the
Internet.) What a long way we’ve come since then.
“The first couple of years, for those who recall it, actually
had individual Commodore Amiga-based BBSes distributing our material as
‘official distros’, before FTP sites such as Aminet kicked in and made
spreading material much easier, then Scene.org started helping out and
a switch to PCs and MP3s was made (in around 1999!) From then on out,
there was a dalliance with sublabels, including the now defunct Mono211
and Monoraveik, before Monotonik was standardized on and we carried on
publishing the best Creative Commons-licensed, freely distributable
MP3s we could find right to where we are now, halfway through the ’00s.

“So many people deserve thanks for helping us keep on keeping
on – from Tommy (Support.nl admin) through stalwart Monotonik releasers
such as Vim! and Lackluster, and more recent supporters like Ossi
(Planet Boelex). I’d like to thank my family and my wife Holly for
giving me the inspiration to continue Mono, but most of all, it’s the
Monotonik artists – you’re the label, not me, and it would be nothing
without you.

“It’s hard to estimate exactly, but millions of music tracks
from hundreds of Monotonik artists have been downloaded in the last ten
years, and thus, we commissioned a special mix from Christopher
‘Whalefish’ Whaley to honor some of our favorite Mono artists and
moments. Here’s the full tracklisting (and there’s some danger of a
part 2 mix, since we had to leave so much good stuff out, btw):

1. bliss – life on the rooftop

2. secede – seafold

3. planet boelex – paprikas from deep

4. vim! – whirlwind snooker

5. braces tower – king of rock

6. ramone – back to the oldskool

7. super science – sometimes we’re happy

8. whiskas – as in cockroach

9. dreamfish – twisted riddim

10. fun tourist – ddd

11. beak – amoral mayor earwig

12. twilight – crystal rain

13. distance/lackluster – starcell u.k.

14. aleksi virta – outer edge intro

15. thug – obatem by night

16. jiva – sous l’eau au pied

17. luminfire – bananadittydub

18. esem – thinmute

19. sense – icy l tap

20. sleepy town manufacture – lain say you care

21. grandma – strawberry rhubarb oppai
