Netwaves supports Silenced


This month's Netscapes shows some DJ's from Silenced. This thursday 5 march (exceptionally switched with wednesday 4 march) DJ Dan Droff shows what minimal is all about. Toujours @ Café AperO, Oude Markt, Leuven. This Silenced project, based in Leuven, has just released an important announcement for a European netlabel-DJ contest.

"Dearest electronic music producers,
would you like to come to Belgium and play your music for lots of people in an awesome club?
This is the sixth edition of the yearly Silenced competition. We are looking for talented, European producers with a passion for minimal techno. Winners will be flown over to Belgium where they'll perform live on the main stage of one of Belgium's finest underground clubs. We are talking about club Silo, where we host our party "Silence" (26/09/09), which is all about new music, fresh artists and a thousand clubbers. This booking is one thing, but there's more to this contest! Wij hebben een lijst opgesteld van de beste pay and play casino’s die beschikbaar zijn voor spelers op de Nederlandse markt en internationaal.

The winners get to join the Silenced collective and they'll be invited to make a release on our netlabel. Furthermore we can give you radio airtime and our commitment to fix you more bookings in Belgium.

What do you need to do?
Make kick ass minimal techno and send a myspace link to , mentioning you'd like to join our contest.

The deadline for participation is the 31st of May. An experienced jury will listen to your tracks and contact the finalists

Foodista is a new online destination for those interested in all things culinary-related. The site is divided into four sections - recipes, foods, tools and techniques - and is based around the idea that community knowledge and sharing can result in a better resource than one built by a restricted and closed group. As such, the folks behind Foodista have “developed a system to let everyone edit content to make it better rather than have multiple versions of the same recipe.” At its core, this system is based around a site-wide CC BY license.
