Final statement:

Some might have noticed that Tilt-Recordings has discontinued its operations… Although originally intended otherwise (cf TILT010 promotext) there will be no further vinyl releases on Tilt-Recordings because of the well known structural problems of the music industry in the contemporary digital media environment, effectively low vinyl sales and lack of funds. And since Tilt-Recordings started out as a vinyl label, it would be missing something essential if being continued 100% digitally. So the label was closed altogether.

Its last vinyl release has been TILT010 by Isotop/Kaiza/Shots/Budoka in early 2009, and the last digital release (T-FILE-EP015) came from Mefjus in November 2010.

The vinyl backstock was given out for free in spring 2011, all tunes were pulled from the digital shops soon after and were eventually made available as free 320 kbps mp3 downloads on the label homepage:

Bulk download links for all tunes officially released on Tilt-Recordings (zip files & podcast feeds):

No releases whatsoever will follow after, no label comeback or re-opening of Tilt-Recordings will happen. This shutdown is final. The associated Soundcloud profile and Facebook page/group will be terminated in July.

The sister netlabel T-FREE was also closed parallely in 2011, with a massive final celebration release – an LP (“tl;dr Happy End”) with 35 tracks from Budoka, Kaiza, Mefjus, Pyro, kr4y, SKC, Mav, Paperclip, Engage, Polarity, Proktah, Phony, Bowsar and many others:

We the people behind Tilt-Recordings (Budoka, DJ Malice, Kaiza and DJ Hektik) are still around and can be contacted & booked through the label homepage and our social network profiles (Soundcloud, Facecock etc).

Kaiza’s own label T3K Recordings (started in February 2009 as a semi-sublabel and detached from Tilt-Recordings in 2010) is still very much active:

Running Tilt-Recordings / T-Files and T-FREE was a significant part of my life for the past decade. I came to meet a lot of interesting people, had many valuable experiences and tons of fun, and I believe I also have learned some facts. My thanks go to all involved artists for their musical contribution and especially for allowing me to put the tunes online as free downloads after ending the money business, Phono (without his input the Tilt vinyl series since 2006 could not possibly have been the same; R.I.P. Leet & Intersection!), Jens Zimmermann aka Tyrell, Pyro, Polarity, Dimo, xplizit, Massl, David Badger and all others who contributed resources and information at various stages, most of all to the original founders and label mates Kaiza and Budoka.

Now for some final words by these other two label owners of Tilt-Recordings who have remained silent in most of the former label statements.

“Tilt-Recordings was the start of something for me. It was way more than just a label to release music i made or i liked. For me, it began to happen at the right time and the right place. And it was the melting pot of beliefs, ideals and expectations and also the first place of examination, observation, reflection and of course action. It was the roof over my head when “bad weather” was working against me and the “ground” beneath my feet on which i could walk whenever i wanted to. For me, the label was an absolute term for quite a long time. It was the main medium to make contacts, see the world and find a position in the dnb (lol)-circus. Although the idea (and so the label itself) was totally different in the beginning from what it became later on, Tilt-Recordings and all the people and things around it were basic groundworks for my musical development and also for my personal formation.
Now, some years later (and after countless experiences which can not be named here) and of course after a lot of change, i can say that i learned and gained so much from this project. For sure, these experiences are something that i dont want to miss… ”

“Looking back on the past almost ten years with ten vinyl-releases, a couple of mp3s and a heavy load of free tunes, Tilt-Recordings was not only a label to me but so much more. It was my homebase and it has given me the possibility to share my music to people all over the world. In all these years I gained a lot of experience and found many new friends. The label also pushed my development in producing and the evolving of my own sound.
So I have to thank my label-m8s for their hard work and for the many discussions we had. Sometimes they weren’t easy, but in the end we still made it and I’m proud that I’ve been a part of it.”

This LP concludes 6 years of T-FREE history and marks the end of all the label’s activities, parallel to the final shutdown of Tilt-Recordings.

Mad props to all artists involved on both labels!

Few more things are left to be adressed on this final occasion.

Over time, T-FREE has frequently been subject to discussions, provoking disagreement on all aspects: its musical orientation and range of varying sound quality from release to release, the public opinions and Internet behaviour of the labelmaker, the absence of artwork, the used form of presentation and the ideological fact of T-FREE being an anti-commercial netlabel. Two opposing opinions usually dominate these debates:

“puts some more established labels to shame”
(crystl_lake @ 2008-06)

“96% of the shit you put out is garbage”
(djc @ 2008-06)

Regardless of reactions, T-FREE has always followed a certain sound/style (with few exceptions), aiming at DJs, not critics. This final release continues that label policy to the end. Some of the tunes are old, some brandnew, some re-released. As usually, they came directly from the producers’ computers without any additional mastering done on them. So they all have different mixdowns, loudness levels and sound characters.

Thus probably everybody will hate some tunes on this LP, but perhaps also everybody will like some tunes on it.

And hopefully this LP will stand worthy as a final release, after 184 tunes on 118 releases (plus these) in 6 years. The traffic statistics show that literally tens of thousands of people have downloded the releases (average circa 45,000). Some of the tunes have even cracked the 100,000 mark. T-FREE had a good run, brought a lot of music to many people and maybe even contributed to some Drum & Bass artist careers.

It was fun, inspiring and politically the right thing to do (from all three perspectives: before, during and after).

“Goodbye everybody!”

PS: A note for the haters. When your favourite bigname DJs play “dubplates” in their mixes, those also are unmastered tunes (from different artists) and they all sound differently.

PPS: Some quoteworthy thoughts about releasing older tunes and the general question of wether artists or audiences own works of art:

With all due respect to the artist(s), it’s kind of idiotic and egoic to not give people what they want, when no almost no effort is involved in distributing a track these days.. When you have fans who fucking dearly want something you made, there are only a few reasons why artists tend not to give them out, and only 2 of those legit.

1) Lost the file (mp3 or sequencer file, DAT tape (LOL) whatever) < -- legit

2) Doesn't want it to be released because they either hate it or thing it's 'beneath' them because their production value has improved over time. Somewhat understandable but ultimately unjustified and pretentious. Ego-based and too concerned about 'image'.

3) Some kind of record label stipulation or legal mangling <-- legit, not understandable, but legit

4) You get off on the fact that people who want something you created will never get it - then you're just a dick. Ultimate in pretension.


the rest of this and other “save the planet, kill yourself” issues can be found elswhere; don’t believe the hype!
And now for the music.

overall T-FREE releases mp3 podcast (rss feed):

Mav feat. Tyrah Morena – “Special Forces”
8:52 min mp3 (320 kbps, 20.3 mb) –> T-FREE-LP002_01__Mav_feat_Tyrah_Morena_-Special_Forces.mp3
Mav is a 20 degree black belt master of techy Athmospheric Drum & Bass. He was exposed to the broader Drum & Bass scene for the first time pretty much through the Armada Recordings launch incident in 2005. That label, planned and publically announced for well over 2 years, had advertised their first release as a 4×12″ LP including Mav’s “Ocean Phantom” among Noisia’s “Desolation” plus Teebee remix and tunes by Corrupt Souls, Desimal and Brain. The scene waited a long time for it with great anticipation and indeed “unprecedented hype.” The delay had already become a running gag when the LP was finally made available; exclusively through the Armada online shop and as a subscription series model. The label wanted to have people pay for the release, use this money to press the vinyl and then send it to the people who paid in first place. The shop script gave customers a timeframe of 6-8 weeks until delivery. 7 days after the shop opened, Teebee, a man always good for some action, made a public announcement about pulling back his remix from Armada for having not been paid until the deadline (and released it shortly after on Renegade Hardware with some different samples and entitled “The Force”). Customers were asking the label many questions and got few satisfactory answers back. Two months later the people who had bought into the subscription were given mp3s of the LP tunes (minus the Teebee remix) and offered refunds. Many of the customers downloaded the tunes instantly, many also chose to ask for the refund and some of them never got their money back. The label crew fell apart and the entire Armada bubble slowly collapsed, leaving behind one of the greatest dramas in Drum & Bass Internet History. Some excellent DOA threads can still be easily found with a search for the word “armada”. And some of the tunes (including Noisia’s otherwise unreleased techmospheric masterpiece “Desolation”) can still be downloaded here.
One of the great things about this label was the indirect promotion effect for involved artists, including Mav. “Ocean Phantom” ended up as his third tune on Fokuz Limited and he also left his mark on other labels, most notably ASC’s Covert Operations (incidentally a label that used a subscription model successfully). Mav’s tunes are a lasting influence, musically untouchable and as epic as the Armada fail was.
“Special Forces” was until now only on a mix-CD in a 2xCD joint album on Covert Operations and Warm Communications [COVWC-CD001] in 2003 and digitally available through Covert Operations, offline since 2009. Watch out for the reworked 2011 version on Mav’s forthcoming LP (!)

His sad, sad tale must not be told but quoted directly: "Born in the harsh mountains of Bulgaria to a family of coal miners, he had really tough childhood. One of his favorite things at this time was listening to stories about unicorns and fairies, sitting around the fire in the company of turkish truck drivers and gipsy prostitutes. After being beaten nearly to death by his father, the young soon-to-be musician decided to escape the mines and to went to the big city to become a glue inhaler or more commonly known as 'lepilar'. Once after being unable to find enough money to buy his favorite 'Kale', our young hero decided to steal an mp3 player from a car that was parked nearby. As soon as he broke the side window open, the alarm of the car turned on. Then something strange happened - he was fascinated by the magical sounds, and decided this was his destiny. And thus was born Broozy - The Defender of Car Alarm Music."

As the number and diversity of Drum & Bass producers is still growing, a lot of interesting music has been produced lately. Therefore, T-Files and Kaiza’s T3K imprint are having a busy time with many digital releases over the past months: one every week, mostly alternating between the two labels (T-FREE has not really slowed down either). And there is not going to be a summer pause…
Last week there was no release only due to a computer change in the main headquarter skyscraper of the Tilt-Recordings Empire (and the usual hick-ups coming with new computers). But as that problem is halfway solved, the labels’ system is running again.

The next thing is a digital Album by the Ukrainian DJ and producer Redco, coming on T-Files very soon. It is entitled “Soulfunk LP” and packed with Neurofunk dancefloor material.

Soon after that, the Nr.1 artist on Tilt-Recording, Budoka (who has recently built himself a new studio and is crafting beats again), will finally make his long overdue T-Files debut.

Furthermore, tunes by guest artists like Walder, Eiton, Paperclip, Try and Error, Proton Kid, Forbidden Socity, Markoman and others are signed and waiting for their release, as well as more tunes by Isotop, Kaiza and Shots (including the Isotop remix of Spinor’s “Moloch”).

The issue of vinyl records brings bad news AND good news: the release of the next one, TILT011, will most probably not happen before 2010 due to the usual lack of funds… But to make it up for only 1 vinyl release on Tilt-Recordings in 2009, a remix by the mighty Misanthrop of Neosignal is planned.

A bunch of tunes by Kaiza and Isotop have been signed to a number of other labels. Their names must remain untold though because it is up to them to announce the signings themselves at the right time of their choice :)
For starters, early July saw the release of these two tunes on Flight Digital FLTDIG021:
Budoka – “Pleasure Ride” (Isotop + Kaiza RMX)
Bassrk – “Head On The Ground” (Isotop + Kaiza RMX)
…and of these two on Anxiety Disorder ADRALB001 Dead Source LP:
Cyclone – “Acetylene” (Kaiza Remix)
Isotop + Kaiza Feat. Shots – “Hybrid”
More will follow.

…Apart from music itself, there are also some minor points of organisation which MIGHT be interesting if you follow Tilt-Recordings and the affiliated digital labels closely:

- Blog.
There is now a blog which gives an overview on all releases from these labels around the Trio-Music crew and other related stuff (podcasts, mixes, events etc.):

Of course the, and websites are still online, get updated regularly and function as proper archives and detailed info sources. The blog is “just” a blog for keeping updated on the boldest news from this camp.

- Server errors.
Due to heavy traffic, the domain (on which all of the labels’ clips and textfiles are hosted) encounters problems sometimes: when more than 100 people try to access it at the same moment, the server produces a 503 error to the 101th person (and above). But it does not mean the server is actually broken.
For example, if you try to download a T-FREE tune and get a 503 error, do not be alarmed. Simply try again. In most cases, it works fine just a few seconds later.
We will probably have to move to a different provider, but this could take quite a while. Anyway there are clips in the shops as well, the Tilt-Recordings and T-FREE homepages still works fine and for all the T-FREE tunes there are mirrors on the label website. Sorry for the inconviniency!

- Tilt-Recordings / T-Files shops.
The Dancerecords shop appears to have gone under (of course without paying any of the labels who had tunes there… proffessional rip-off business), so at the moment the only shops for buying Tilt & T-Files tunes digitally are ithinkmusic, Digital-Tunes, Juno, Beatsdigital and (usually with some weeks delay) Beatport.
Chemical-Records and Trackitdown may eventually follow in the future, but for now the tunes are only available here:

- T3K shops.
The tunes on T3K (the digital-only label of Kaiza) were available via the Tilt / T-Files profiles in the digital stores until the end of June. This has now changed, T3K has its own shop profiles now:

…the releases up to June are also on

That’s all the more or less important stuff for now.
Watch or for the next releases etc.
